Remember the Doctor David Kulbersh from irmo, South Carolina who sits on the PASS Medical Advisory Board?
If you need a refresher its here:
It seems the mysterious Doctor David Kulbersh has mysteriously disappeared from the PASS performer Database..one day he is there, and POOF the next he is gone. i dont mean listed as not available I mean gone…removed.
Of course according to The FSC they didn’t remove it, so if thats true there must be someone else who has administrator access and can remove or alter listings at will…Kinda makes ya wonder don’t it….
AB 1576 has been amended to include testing every 14 days and employers have to pay. It hs also been moved to the Labor Committee. Here’s the latest fact sheet:

AB 1576 (Hall) Adult Film Worker Safety
Sponsor: AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Rand Martin, (916) 601-4370
Staff Contact: Brian Duke, (916) 319-2064
Adult film production is a multi-billion dollar industry. California based production of adult films account for the vast majority of this business, employing thousands of Californians and generating millions of dollars in tax revenue.
Workers in agriculture, food service, healthcare, construction and many other industries benefit from stringent work place safety requirements that keep workers’ compensation costs down and ensure a safe environment to earn a living. The adult film industry, given the type of work required, disproportionately exposes actors to a range of health and safety risks. The industry is largely self-regulated and has done an inadequate job of protecting its employees from disease infection.
According to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health (Department), workers in adult films are ten times more likely to be infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD), such as HIV, than the population at large. In 2013, there were up to five documented HIV transmissions of adult film actors, leading to three separate self-imposed yet unenforced production moratoriums.
The result of this unsafe work environment is a public health crisis that would be preventable if reasonable steps were taken to protect these employees in the workplace.
AB 1576 will require adult film industry employers to ensure that a condom or other sexual barrier device is used during the production of an adult film. The bill also clarifies that employers must pay for mandatory STD testing of each actor and that adult film actors must be tested for STDs at least every fourteen days. While AB 1576 requires use of condoms in adult films, the bill does not require condoms to be visible in the film’s final product.
This measure is consistent with recent state and federal court rulings requiring adult film employees to be given the same workplace safety protections enjoyed by employees in every other California industry. AB 1576 will provide statewide uniformity needed to ensure that the thousands of actors employed in this multi-billion dollar industry are given reasonable workplace safety protections needed to reduce exposure to HIV and other communicable diseases.

Manwin/MindGeek has terminated the entire legal department in Montreal. Some say it is because they lost to Jules Jordan others say it is because they are cost cutting, I would expect it is the later. I reported a while back that Manwin would be redoubling its efforts on tube sites and every other business would be cut, and that is certainly happening.
I installed a plugin that allows you to edit post comments LMK if you have any issues.
I know that there are some issues with wordpress and the theme at the top of comment pages that cant be fixed without breaking other things I keep trying though.
I got my hands on this which is the confirmation sent to a complainant by CalOsha This would be the response by CalOSHA to the person who filed the complaint, at that persons request I have removed their name, but I am told it will be public fairly soon. It is NOT AHF.

As was previously reported many shooters are still owed money by ATK and many are no longer shooting for ATK unless they get cash up front which has resulted in a lot of cancellations.
Although Nielsen has been paying his shooters small amounts to reduce outstanding balances, he’s late, often very late paying for shoots he recently ordered. He needs a lot of content to feed the sites and has been trying to cut costs by bringing shooting in house.
Look at Aaliyah Love’s Twitter feed, Nielsen was reducing costs by flying models-three I think, including Aaliyah to Las Vegas, staying in the Bellagio, and shooting scenes for the Girlfriends site where he’s the male talent.
And in Vegas you can bet he wasn’t eating at Taco Bell to cut costs even further. He went to Vegas because he thought he could avoid the long arm of OSHA but I looked at the OSHA inspection notice you posted on your site and it’s a Federal matter so going to Nevada won’t make any difference. The really insane thing to me is that he’s flaunting all these laws and regulations but he’s incriminating himself by shooting video of all that and posting it on one a website.
There’s a lot more but let me just say that Nielsen’s behavior the last six months has become unpredictable and even reckless. OSHA are on his case, and I heard a rumor that the IRS is too. He is also involved in a nasty divorce which may be the catalyst for much of this.
This could get very ugly.

There is drama over at Mindgeek/Twistys regarding this years Twistys Treat of the Year contest.
The contest ended over a week ago and Mindgeek still has not formally revealed the winner. In the past it only took a day to calculate the results and make an announcement. The reason it took so long this time is because one of the new VP’s was not happy with the results of the contest so he needed some time to figure out what to do.
The girl who got the most votes (as voted on by Twistys members) was not a boy-girl performer and that is what the VP wanted for Treat of the Year, so instead of going with the real winner of the contest, he chose Nicole Aniston for Treat of the Year.
The runner up position they reluctantly gave to Vanessa Veracruz but the VP decided NOT to invite her to Costa Rica to shoot with this years and last years winner and decided to replace her on this trip with Madison Ivy. This trip was part of the prize package for the winner & runner up.
So in short, this contest was a complete scam
Seems everything Manwin/Mindgeek touches is dirty, remember they did exactly the same thing with the Playboy Cyber Girl of the year contest.
Long troubled by drug addiction former Evil Angel Director Jake Malone committed suicide by jumping off a bridge in Long beach on Moday, Malone was 61. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
I told you guys that big layoffs were coming to manwin and of course they have, so one wouldn’t really expect them to be hiring for most of the positions that they just laid off….but one would be wrong.
a quick look at xindustryjobs.info Shows an awful lot of what are obviously Manwin jobs in montreal, with titles like this one:
Get ready to impress the Whole Wide…Web!
- You will submit video clips and banner ads to video sharing sites and manage ongoing site relations
- You will maintain affiliates online promotional tools, including banner inventories, clips and other promotional materials
- You will plan the scheduling of online promo overlays and diverse promotions
- You will monitor the technical performance of our site network, perform content quality control check-ups and report site maintenance issues
- You will maintain blogs for our external and internal partners
- You will provide prompt and professional support to the marketing and sales teams for various team or our customer requests
- You have an academic degree in a relevant field
- You know PowerPoint and Photoshop
- You have a solid knowledge of internet (navigation, resources, tools etc.)
- Social media is second nature to you
Are you also…
- Highly analytical?
- Very comfortable in English and French?
In your resume, make sure to tell us about the achievement you are most proud of and what you learned from it.
Theres lots more but this one stuck out….why because your primary duty, the FIRST thing that they list is “upi will submit video clips and banner adds to sharing sites” Gee I thought they have been telling us all along that those clips are USER submitted? of course everyone with a brain knew they were paying people to upload them.
There are also a lot of medium high level to high level positions open there Like Chief Technology Officer and if you read through the listings it becomes very apparent they are pretty much only hiring for the tubesite side of things.
Manwin, now MindGeek has refocused back to the tubes, as I reported that they planned to do, but there are chinks in the armor, the tube sites aren’t getting the fresh content they once did so now the thieves at Manwin/Mindgeek are understanding the need to manage the submissions and to rotate the content they do have. They have actually almost single handedly brought production in Porn Valley to about 25% of what it was just a few years ago so the very pipeline they were stealing their bread and butter from is drying up. It had to happen. When they people who take out-take those who produce the whole system collapses…ask most of Eastern Europe…..
Thomas Scott Sparks, Convicted
Thomas Scott Sparks, my favorite bitch…..Next to Rob Black…What I just don’t get is why anyone is having anything to do with him, I get that he can prey on girls from social networking sites that dont know any better. But if you are in porn and doing business with this predator you are putting people in this industry in danger, namely the girls he is sending you….Is it worth that?
Since he doesn’t know when to quit I’m going to give all the info anyone needs to track him down and hold him accountable.
Name: Thomas Scott Sparks
DOB: 19 Nov 65
High School: Miamisburg HS, Miamisburg Ohio Class of 1984
He has stolen the identity of his parents in the past and he does not keep in touch with his family. His father was a preacher. He does not keep in touch too much with anyone back home in OH. Most folks found out who and what he really is.
He is approximately 5’8 inches tall, weighing approximately 200lbs, red hair cut short in a military fashion and green eyes.
He has a tattoo on the lateral aspect of his left calf, and an old surgical scar on the radial aspect of his right thumb with a palpable plate and screws beneath it.
He claimed to have been an US Air Force Pararescueman, holding the rank of Chief Master Sergeant (E-9), having entered the enlisted force in September 1985 (after voluntarily leaving the AF Academy after 1 year).
The truth is HERE This is his Air Force Records Obtained under the FOIA:
As you can see he was discharged prior to his full enlistment as an Airman 1st Class (E-3) and he of course NEVER attended the Airforce Academy. He was stationed at, and never left Peterson AFB, Colorado.
He claims he was injured on the ground in Mogadishu, Somalia Oct 1993, and for his efforts and injuries he received a Purple Heart and a Silver Star Medal. The story he has told is actually the recounting done by Tim Wilkinson. The experience he claimed to have had actually happened to Scotty Fales.
He claims he was on Takur Ghar mountain in Afghanistan in March 2002 during the battle of Roberts ridge and that he received a Bronze Star Medal for his actions that day.
He claims to have been assigned to Air Force One as a pararescueman for a period of three months prior to his recruitment by ‘Delta’.
He claims to have been stationed at, attached to, or had access to the Pentagon, Air Force One, the US Air Force Academy, Andrews AFB, Hurlburt Field, Fla, Charleston AFB SC, RAF Lakenheath UK, Kadena AB Japan, Moffett Federal Air Field , CA, Ft Bragg NC, Jackson NAS Fla, Ft Hood Texas and Langley AFB VA to name a few.
He even has said he has been a secret operative working for the US government on foreign soil. Most notably, in Northern Ireland where he hunted IRA terrorists for three years (during a time when he was active duty).
He claims to have performed the same duties in Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
He has said in his career – in the line of duty – he has killed more than 300 persons.
Says he was on rescue teams at RAF Lakenheath as late as 2000.
He even claimed to have rescued a downed AF pilot (Lt Herres) at sea in the late 1980′s. Said he shot and killed a security forces military working dog on the flightline of RAF Lakenheath in 1990 or 1991. That alleged incident occured because he said his ‘spec ops’ team was stopped on the flightline there for night refeuling and there was a U2 on the flightline which he was only looking at. Security forces spotted him and ordered him to halt, he did not and the SP drew a weapon on him. He said he drew his own weapon as well and when the SP released the working dog on him he fired killed it in self-defense. He said he did not get into serious trouble over this incident because the base commander at the time was the father of the Lt Herries he rescued at sea. He identified the father of the pilot /Lakenheath base commander to be Col Herres, who later went on to become Gen Herres, CEO and Chairman of USAA.
He says he and General Herres were close friends until his death. I know his statements regarding Gen Herres to be false.
He did drive a silver Nissan pick-up truck with California tags around 2010.
He states that early in his career (prior to 1990) he was recruited by “Delta” personnel and has been working for them ever since. This is the reason he says there is no record of him in any database. The Air Force Personnel Center at Randolph AFB Texas has no record of him. The base locator at Charleston AFB where he says he is currently assigned, has no record of him as either active duty, reserve or civilian working on the base.
He has said that he briefed the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, and that after that time he will be permanently removed from the ‘covert’ world he has been a part of, will then be returned to all the databases he is currently not in; he will become a ‘normal person again.
In actuality none of this happened, at least to him, he takes stories of other people and relates them as his own. He actually was kicked out of the AF after less than a full 4 years of service. I have a copy of his discharge papers.
I contacted have Special Ops Command as well as the PJ’s and no one ever heard of him. They got his picture and he got on their radar. He does not like that. Those boys are a tight knit community and do not like it when people try to pretend to be on of them.
He does have domestic violence charges in California. I have a few copies of different cases in Ohio and California.

The Graffitti charges listed above involved him painting white supremacist symbols and racial epithets on the properties of black persons
When he ran away from S.C. to Irving Texas when the heat was on, he started the “Medocomm” Company. It was buklklshit though, nothing but a drop box and officers who were realtors in VA.
Thomas Scott Sparks really needs a visit from someone who can explain to him the error of his ways. If anyone needs more info I am happy to help.
I would also like to put several people who have been threatened by him in different states in touch with an attorney. Scott is in violation of dozens of civil and criminal statutes and unlike Donny Long Scott is in this country and is easily enough located.
Help me if ya can.
I have been working this story for a long time, it’s a difficult one to work because performers don’t want their medical info to be shared. It is somewhat compounded by the different strains of antibiotic resistant Gonorrhea.
With the help of no fewer than 6 performers who shared their treatment info with me it is apparent that antibiotic resistent Gonorrhea is fairly common in porn. All six were treated at CET, at least initially and all six received treatments that went way beyond the CDC recommendations found here:
The regimen used included at least 4 different drugs, which is indicative of the treatment of an antibiotic resistant strain. It should be noted that we are NOT talking about the H041 strain that in Asia is called “Super Gonorrhea” But the fears that H041 will show up in the USA are quite real. Gonorrhea is one of the most drug resistant organisms ever and it is constantly becoming more and more resistant.
Most performers have no idea which strain they have, they just know they had Gonorrhea and CET or whomever treated it. Most don’t even have a clue what drugs they were given. I had them get me the details of their treatment and send it to me to use as the basis of this report.
One thing that stuck in my mind was that in every case the performers volunteered that they had felt pressured by CET to get the treatment there.
CET wouldn’t comment on this story but someone close told me that to think that antibiotic resistant Gonorrhea wasn’t fairly common in adult circles is “incredibly naive”
If you are a performer I would suggest that when you do get an STD you understand the treatment you are given and why. Knowledge is power and you should have all the knowledge and power you need to make the decisions about your lives.
I never in a million years thought that the Duke Freshman story would get the legs it did yesterday…I mean it’s a week plus old story, but it blew up, even getting a mention on the local news.
The interesting thing to me was the reader reactions, they actually set me straight in a lot of areas. being in porn I tend to think that having been a porn performer is no big deal for most jobs, I mean I would have no problem with a nurse who had been in porn, so long as she or he wasnt a moron trying to convince me that condoms cause more STDs, A lawyer, no problem, a CPA no problem I might have a problem with a former porn performer teaching my kids but I guess it might depend on the individual.
I forget that most people in the real world dont see things the same as I do, while I can kinda justify paying to go to Duke over a full ride scholarship to Vanderbilt (after all Uncle Peg, Michael Whiteacre, went there and look what its done for him) the truth is my readers are right. Every scene Belle Knox (Laurens porn name) does devalues her degree a little bit more to people outside the biz, right or wrong thats just the way it is.
She does seem to be a bit brighter than a lot of porn girls and I think she was dead on the money about Republicans, even if she was paraphrasing Will McAvoy on “Newsroom” (I love that show)
In the end I wish Lauren nothing but the best and maybe all of us need to look inside ourselves a bit, Lauren included and ask why this is such a popular story
if you haven’t seen the news stories allow me to recap briefly. There is a female freshman at Duke University, and straddled with a tuition exceeding 60K per year she has decided that doing porn to pay for her education makes sense for her. A guy in a fraternity at Duke found her out and exposed her. Instead of running the girl whom everyone is calling Lauren has stood her ground. here’s a few quotes from “Lauren”
“I worked as a waitress…in high school and not only did it interfere with my school where I was barely sleeping and wasn’t doing my work, but also I was making $400 a month after taxes. I felt like I was being degraded and treated like s–t. My boss was horrible to me. For people to tell me that doing porn and having sex, which I love, is more degrading than being a waitress … that literally makes no sense. To be perfectly honest, I felt more degraded in a minimum wage, blue-collar, low paying, service job than I ever did doing porn.”
When asked if she thought that sex workers were victims she replied:
“A woman who transgresses the norm and takes ownership of her body—because that’s exactly what porn is, no matter how rough the sex is—ostensibly poses a threat to the deeply ingrained gender norms that polarize our society… That a woman could be intelligent, educated and CHOOSE to be a sex worker is almost unfathomable.”
Lauren, a college Republican has this to say about the GOP (and IMO she NAILS IT!
“I’m a libertarian who is forced to play within party lines because, at this point, our party isn’t strong enough to get anything done without the backing of the Republican Party. It’s really frustrating that when I tell people I’m in College Republicans they immediately assume I’m a bigot and a homophobe. Duke Republicans is completely pro-gay rights. Calling somebody a Republican is almost an insult and, personally, I hope the party moves toward a more libertarian style wherein they give rights to gays and more respect to women, and it’s not so driven by religion or by theology.”
Now THAT is the kind of performer that we as an industry should be supporting and have speaking for us….Good for her!
Rob has been poking at me forever trying to get a mention, his infantile whining is only surpassed by his delusions of grandeur…to hear Rob tell it he is responsible for every major event that has happened in porn since he came in….most minor ones too.
Truth is the things he is responsible for are mostly scumbag things like bouncing checks to talent (that he never made good on) and ruining careers….like Tommy Byrons, it’s a damn shame that Rob had to drag Tommy down with him, but when you lie down with dogs you gonna get fleas and Rob has proven to be nothing if not the lowliest of curs.
Rob is a functional illiterate, most everyone knows he lacks the capacity to write in any understandable form, that’s Tommy doing the writing on adultfyi and because of his association with Rob nobody in porn will touch him and I don’t blame them.
You can add Lizzy Borden and Katie Summers to the list too….everything Rob gets close to gets fleas….
I had hoped that Rob had matured some but as it turns out he is just another Donny Long, bitter about his failure in an industry that he should have succeeded in….being born into it and all.
Ok scumbag..ya got yer ten mins on my site…Im done with ya…sundays are slow anyway.
“https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/establishment.inspection_detail?id=317143170 – Link now broken”
The link for Evil Angel isn’t broken …the Inspection Information detail has been removed from public access. The first detail to disappear was SxMedia DBA SoCal media the next day three reports for Cybernet Entertainment LLC DBA Kink.com disappeared.
Now the question is….where are these reports going and why are they disappearing from a Federal website after being published? This isn’t a question of delayed to public posting these reports were already public and magically went poof.
This is public record and there must be compelling reasons to remove the record….in addition to these reports disappearing from site I was stonewalled by Clement Hsieh (District manager High Hazard Unit – North) who sent me to Public Information OQffice. Ten days after emailing Greg Siggins the information he requested via email there is no response.
