I don’t know about you, but I would never take medical advice from a lobbyist. I tend to take medical advice from medical professionals. This Syphilis scare in the adult porn world is such a giant mess its hard for even us with an interest in it to keep up with whats real, whats rumor and whats propaganda. It’s clear many involved have an agenda, from performers who fake tests trying to save face, to lobbyist groups looking to control performers health options, to big named porn companies in the midst of a huge power grab. Whats being lost in everything is sex workers and their health. Adult performers are once again being used as pawns in another porn valley power grab and mad dash to the bottom of decency. They are being extorted to get a medical shot with out advice of a doctor but at direction of a lobbying group. Get the shot or don’t work for 3 months, regardless of your health status, STI status or history. Yep, I said extortion.
Really that’s the answer the powers that be came up with? Get medically unnecessary treatment to combat something you don’t have? Kinda sounds to me like the FSC is taking lessons from Governor Bob McDonnell of VA who wants women to get a medically unnecessary ultrasound before an abortion to further his personal agenda… now don’t it.
I’m not even gong to presume I have all the facts on this clusterfuck of a story (even though I’ve been following it closely) Seems stories and facts are changing daily. What I can tell you is this, get real advice about your health from real medical professionals. Do not put your health or safety in the hands of people who have an agenda, especially people who stand to benefit from you doing as you are told and following blindly with out asking questions because you are strapped for cash. I’ve written for years about how being desperate (or greedy) can alter your good decision making practices and how you should never let that get in the way of doing what is best for you. Don’t start now.
