By now we all know the industry legend of Marc Wallice doctoring his HIV test results and intentionaly working despite the fact that he knew he had HIV. But did Wallice really know he was HIV positive?
At the time of these events I was employed by Medical Science Institute(MSI) and Physicians Clinical Laboratory(PCL). These two labs merged together and became Bio-Cypher Lab. At this time the NEVHC clinics had a contract with MSI labs to do their bloodwork. I was the Field Service Supervisor at this time, and the NEVHC clinics were my accounts. I don’t recall exactly when the two lab facilities were combined into one, but each facility operated independently for almost nine months after the merger took place. The transfer of accounts and employees was a very long process.
The authenticity of one test was questioned because it listed Wallice as a “49 year old female.” This was nothing more than a clerical error at the lab. On that particular night a mistake was made that lead to about 40 to 50 patients information being incorrectly entered. The mistake was caught at the lab about four days later by a billing department eployee, who fixed all of the errors. We also pulled every single specimen to make sure nobody’s blood work was mixed up. Except when the errors were corrected by the billing department they did not do the corrections on the “clinical” side, so the errors still showed on the test results. Eventually this was also corrected and an “Ammended Report” was sent out with all of the proper information. The HIV negative results were never in question.
The authenticity of the second test was questioned because it had the adress of a clinic location that had been shut down for at least a month. Again, this can be traced directly back to the lab. Each of the NEVHC clinics had a unique account number at the lab in order for the test results to be sent to the proper location. When that one location closed all of the supplies were bought to the other locations, including the lab order slips with the address and account number for the old location. Because there were still test results pending when that location closed, the lab simply forwarded that locations results to another location. Eventually, those lab order slips from the closed location were used at the other facility, and that its why the other adress appears on that result. This too was eventually fixed and rereported with the proper information,. The HIV negative results were never in question.
Did Marc Wallice know he was HIV positive? Only he knows that answer. Were either of these tests forgeries, or doctored in any way, ABSOLUTELY NOT! I have read stories that prior to these incidents that Wallice had changed the date on one of his tests. I believe that this prior bad act led people to the conclusion that he had done it again, and they had every right to be skeptical.
There were also reports at the time of these incidents that a viral load test was done on Wallice that showed a VL of over 100,000. I never saw these tests personally, but usually a result like this is indicitive of one of two things, either it was an early detection, or the person was not taking any medication, both of which would indicate that Wallice did not know his HIV status. But not every persons body reacts to the HIV virus in the same way, so there could be other reasons for these results, not likely, but possible.
But the fact is, neither of these two tests that were deemed to be forgeries by the adult industry were in fact forgeries. Say what you want, beleive what you want, but Marc Wallice did not doctor, forge, or in any way alter the two tests in question. I would welcome the opportunity to speak directly to Marc about this.

This is all from an XXXInsider..TY for the hard work on this!
A few weeks back we talked about the performer who fell through the cracks. This performer was working for Kink and tested through an FSC-approved facility called STD Status. A few days after he tested and in the midst of last year’s moratorium, the performer received an email with an attachment containing LabCorp test results indicating he had tested positive for HIV. The tests were paid for by Kulbersh Health Screening Services out of Columbia, South Carolina and the email was sent by something called FPK Services. FPK Services is a Texas-based shell corporation owned by a certain Fiyyaz Pirani. Pirani owns several businesses – most of which are complete scams – including STD Status, as well as the similarly named STD Alert and STD Check. STD Status is marketed exclusively towards performers, while STD Check and STD Alert are marketed more for the “general public.”
The STD Status website features the logos of both the Free Speech Coalition and PASS. In addition, STD Status offers a “PASS approved performer testing panel” for an exorbitantly priced $200 bucks. That testing panel includes an HIV RNA test as well as tests for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trich, and hepatitis A & B. At $200 bucks a pop, twice a month, that adds up – especially if you’re a performer paying for testing out of your own pocket. $200 is especially insane considering AHF basically offers the same services for FREE. So where is that money going?
At the bottom of STD Status’ webpage, there’s a link titled “Affiliate Network” that takes you over to STD Check. The message at the top of the page says, “Joining the STDcheck.com Affiliate Program is a great way to turn your website’s traffic into cash. Our high-quality STD tests and reliable support team make our affiliate program the best online. You send traffic our way and we send you a commission on their purchases. It’s effortless.”
Further down the page, under a section titled “It’s Profitable,” the site goes on to say, “A high average order cost and unmatched 50% commission structure means higher profits for you.” According to the site, affiliates receive a generous 50% revenue share with the average order size costing about $200. Coincidentally, a “PASS approved performer testing panel” also costs about $200.
An article dated February 27, 2014 and published to PRWeb.com explains the Affiliate Program in more detail:
“Our affiliate program is pretty simple. Affiliates send traffic our way and get paid each time one of their visitors purchase STD testing,” said Fiyyaz Pirani, founder and CEO of STDcheck.com, in his Houston, Texas office earlier today.
Benefits of joining STDcheck.com’s Affiliate Program include an unmatched 50% commission, a continuous tracking system that allows affiliates to maintain and oversee their accounts in real time, and a dedicated account manager to provide creative materials and support. The program also offers discounts, codes, and bonuses for participating affiliates and their visitors.
“We just started the program and we have already had an incredible amount of interest. Our affiliates are enterprising and enthusiastic. People are recognizing that this is a really great way to make money,” said Pirani.
In December of 2012, the Free Speech Coalition announced STD Status as it’s newest PASS-approved testing facility. Diane Duke said at the time, “We are thrilled to be able to offer more options to performers for testing, especially performers that are located outside of the Los Angeles area… It’s exciting to welcome them to the program.” In a December 2012 interview with AVN, Fiyyaz Pirani clarified STD Status’ relationship with the FSC: “We are an authorized provider to [PASS] and the Free Speech Coalition; we are partners with both.”
There is a clearly established business relationship between the Free Speech Coalition and STD Status. It appears the FSC may be profiting directly off of performers testing through STD Status as part of Fiyyaz Pirani’s “Affiliate Program.” Here’s how it works: The FSC refers performers to STD Status for a twice a month STD panel at $200 a pop. That’s $400 a month for performers paying for testing out of their own pocket. The FSC in turn collects a 50% commission for every referral they send to STD Status. STD Status bilks performers by overcharging for a standard STD panel and the Free Speech Coalition pockets half of performers’ hard-earned money. A studio like Kink (who pays for their own talent testing and whose CEO Peter Acworth sits on the FSC board) probably gets a discounted rate and can write off performer testing as a business expense. Everybody wins. Well… everybody except performers that is.
The question now is: How many performers are testing through STD Status? More importantly, where is all the money going? If it is indeed going back to the FSC then I would imagine that could threaten their non-profit status. Perhaps this clue from the FAQ section of Pirani’s “Affiliate Program” will shed a little light on how money is exchanging hands:
Q:How do I get paid?Â The answer: “All earned commissions are paid by check, direct deposit or PayPal. It is easy to set up a PayPal account if you do not own one.”
PayPal, huh? That’s pretty interesting, especially when you consider PayPal has very strict guidelines regarding adult services. PayPal also explicitly prohibits “transactions that show the personal information of third parties in violation of applicable law” as well as transactions that “support ponzi schemes, matrix programs, other ‘get rich quick’ schemes or certain multi-level marketing programs.”
PayPal Acceptable Use Policy: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/acceptableuse-full
So there you have it. The Free Speech Coalition certainly have some answering to do, as does Fiyyaz Pirani. Unfortunately they will probably respond with what they know best; attacks and diversions while they skirt away from the real issues.
In closing, I would like leave you with a glimpse of what kind of asshole Fiyyaz Pirani really is. This is a notice for a pre-trial court hearing related to a speeding citation Pirani received in Meadows, Texas. He posted a copy of the notice to his Facebook page in what he described as an act of protest. The court clerk made a note saying, “Bailiff and Judge very angry he parked his Lamborghini in the police parking lot. He was also late and showed little regard for authority. Without saying a word, he left court.”
Sounds like a real class act. Performers, do you really want your hard-earned money going to some rich douche-bag in Texas who’s the type of person to double park his Lamborghini and brag about it on Facebook?
Talent, you deserve better.
There was a story last week that caught my attention, I didn’t write about it because i wanted to think about it for a while, let the emotional aspect of it clear out.
The story is about Stephanie Hird and Sara Zamora. Both were arrested in association with “crush” videos and charged with five and nine counts, respectively, of felony cruelty to animals. The animals involved included fish, rabbits, chickens and pigs.
Hird and Zamora are hired performers on some of the counts and apparently the content producers on others.
The adult press was awash in how “alarming” it was, what surprised me is why they thought it was alarming.
In my lifetime I have killed Many fish, also deer, pigs, feral hogs, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, quail, dove, dogs, cats, and various other animals. I have been an avid outdoorsman, hunter and fisherman my entire life. When i was in second grade I took a .22 rifle to school everyday and when school let out I walked home through the woods. If I killed some squirrels or rabbits thats what we would have for dinner. I never killed anything we didn’t eat, or in the case of the dog and cat wasnt a mercy kill.
I had a bird dog named Jewel and when I was fifteen I came out to find her hit by a car, no way she was going to survive and it broke my heart to see her eyes begging me to make it better, it broke my heart to put a bullet in her head but it was the humane thing to do.
One of my girlfriends had a cat with feline Leukemia, I liked the cat, it was laid back and it liked me. She called one day in tears because she was going to have to take it to be euthanized, it had seen its last day. She asked me to go with her. When I got there the cat was indeed in bad shape…couldnt move off its blanket and the vet had told her to bring it in. The cat HATED the vet, it always scared the thing to death and it seemed wrong to me for it to be that afraid during its last hour(s) so I put it in its basket with its blanket i opened a can of tuna for it….it couldnt eat but it was licking the juice and I shot it, ending its life both quickly and hopefully peacefully, much moreso than waiting to die in a metal box pumped full of gas at the vet (or however they do it)
Now you are prolly thinking OK so….. well the point is that animals are property. You may not like that concept but its the way the law here views it and it is the way it should view it. if you think I am wrong about that try to sue the person who killed your dog for anything other than what you paid for the dog. You cant sue for emotional anything or punitive damages or pain and suffering of you or the dog.
With that property comes property rights. Do you not have the right to do as you want with your property so long as it doesnt endanger anyone else or their property? Should I have been charged for killing my dog or Taylors cat?
What if Hird and Zamora had eaten the chicken or the fish? How do you know they didn’t? While everyone in porn is up in arms about requirements to make performers use condoms claiming first amendment rights do Zamora and Hird have a first amendment right to this “artistic” expression? Popular speech doesn’t need to be defended, the only speech worth defending is unpopular speech and as abhorrent as I find this I find the government abridging these free speech and property rights to be way more abhorrent and way more dangerous.

XRCO Awards Pics 2014
Every single day I get email notifications from agencies advertising some new girl they just added to the roster.
A good number of these girls are at best average and at worse, well unshootable. Im not saying that they have no business in porn, there’s an ass for every seat and I am sure some guy would think that she is the cats meow but right now a quick look through the Industry modeling sites and it becomes very apparent that there is no way you can keep this many girls working regularly enough to make a living.
So why add average girls to the roster?
Maybe we should return to the days when there was actually a “star” system in the biz, particularly for mass market DVD shoots, I mean shouldn’t Porn Valley be the cream of the crop in terms of talent? leave average for the Internet?
It has long been suggested that we should drug test talent….that would certainly go a long way towards weeding out performers who probably shouldn’t be doing this anyway…
But the problem with that whole raising the bar thing means a LOT of people make a lot less money. Many of the business surrounding Porn Valley depend on a glut of performers…..I mean where would CET be if there were only 100 active performers? TTS would be fine they are nationwide but CET would fold.
And what about all the “talent agencies” not just LATATA but all of them….that would leave an awful lot of them in trouble. As it is they are turning to escorting to make ends meet, even agencies that once would fire girls for being escorts are now doing it.
I am not sure that there is an answer but I am sure that there is a problem and that problem is looming to bite us in the ass in ways that we dont yet even know about. That means we better start searching for an answer.
With the decline in production in Porn Valley it comes as no surprise that more and more performers are escorting, for many it is the only way they can pay the bills but I am hearing more and more stories of girls being sent by their agents to “shoots” that they don’t think are legit.
One performer told me that it was just a guy with a camera and he never even turned it on. She never saw the scene anywhere and she is convinced he was nothing but a “john” pretending to be shooting for “the internet”
Now to some girls this doesn’t really matter, others see it as a huge breach of the agent performer relationship, particularly when if she complains the agent will simply tell potential employers that she is “unavailable” for future shoots.
I believe that agents DO have a responsibility to weed out this kind of situation. Does the guy have a business license? a shooting permit? does he even have a website?
If you remember the whole Richard Nanula thing, it is the same thing, girls were told it was a legit shoot but in reality it was just Nanula having unprotected sex with pornchicks for a lot less than they would cost him to hire them as an escort, and in some cases the girls really didnt understand what was happening.
Admitted there is a fine line between escorting and performing but there IS a line and no girl in this biz should have to cross it unless she wants to.
It isn’t hard to weed these guys out really and if you are a performer remember that if it doesnt look or feel right you can always walk away, and you should. If your agent gives you shit for that I want to hear about it.
As a performer you have a right to ask where the scene will appear and then you go to that site and check it out. If you get to the shoot and it is clearly not consistent with the site you were told it would be on then walk away.
The one thing that has to be fixed is any agent second guessing or causing repercussions because you chose to be safe and legal over a sketchy situation. If that happens bring it to me. If any of you have any questions feel free to contact me confidentially, there is strength in numbers and if I see a pattern I will out any agent pulling this shit.
Yes times are slow in the biz and if you chose to escort I support your choice its not my business but if you are bullied into escorting or tricked into escorting I want to know about it.
For those that don’t remember, Extreme Associates was The Kazoo’s company that specialized in abusing females, making them drink vomit, enema excrement, urine and such his antics rightly landed him and his wife in a Federal Penitentiary, It would appear that Treasure Island Media is following suit.
What makes this relevant is that a lot of these guys (not the amateur submitting) are performing in straight porn, with the help of caverject and other such drugs.
If THE FSC were smart (ya right) they’d take a stand…..
A Reader sends this:
Controversial bareback studio Treasure Island Media recently launched their own tube site, ToxxxicTube, where they’ve uploaded hundreds of extended video clips taken from their films. It’s the same garbage you get when you buy a membership to one of their sites, only free. What a bargain. In addition to the “professional” clips (and I use that term looser than a Treasure Island Media bottom), the site hosts dozens of videos from community members engaging in what appears to be illegal drug use.
There’s one from user “armchairPNP,” in which a masked man sticks a syringe in his arm and injects himself with what is presumably meth, or heroin. There are lots of others
There probably aren’t any legal ramifications for the amateur men who submitted these videos (authorities aren’t going to go around looking for someone who may have done drugs one time in an undated video), but the consequences for Treasure Island Media—the company making a profit off of the publication and hosting of these videos—could be quite dire, and not just because of the illegal drug use. As part of U.S. 2257 requirements, content producers are required to keep records identifying the ages and names of the performers in their movies. So, is a tube site like TIM’s ToxxxicTube required to provide 2257 docs on its community members who upload videos of themselves doing illegal drugs?
There’s a 2257 notice on Treasure Island’s ToxxxicTube site:
18 U.S.C. 2257 Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement All performers in each video and graphical image on this website depicting activity governed by 18 U.S.C. 2257 were over the age of 18 as of the date(s) of production. The records required by Section 2257 with respect to such films and images on this website are kept by the Custodian of Records, Paul Morris, Principal, at the offices of the producer, TIM Global., 2261-R Market St #435, San Francisco, CA 94114.
So, do you think sdprtypal and armchairpnp sent in copies of their drivers licenses and birth certificates to Treasure Island Media before they uploaded home movies of themselves shooting meth?
Amateur or not, the men in Treasure Island Media’s slamming videos are still performers from whom Treasure Island Media is profiting. As it states below each clip on the tube site: “Sponsored Video From Treasure Island Media” (which links to the TIM paysite). The men in these videos are performing on a Treasure Island Media site that exists solely to increase Treasure Island Media membership sales and market the Treasure Island Media brand. So, if the feds showed up on Market Street today looking for the 2257 docs on Hairy Chempig Slamming, what would Treasure Island Media say? What would TIM owner Paul Morris say? What would TIM’s defenders at the Free Speech Coalition say?
What does anyone who does business with or works in any capacity for Treasure Island Media have to say for themselves?
“How Much Did MindGeek Pay ABC News For That 15 Minute Ad For Their Tube Sites?”
That is what my friend Danny asked after viewing the segment on “Nightline”. His second comment was that he wanted to “go to Pornhub and Check out that Tasha Reign chick.”
A little background info is in order here. I was contacted by Alex Waterfield, Producer for ABC News Nightline about two months ago. He said he wanted to do a piece on how piracy has devastated what was once thought to be an economy proof business. He said that he was having a problem getting anyone to “go on the record about a company called MindGeek”. We had a lengthy chat and I outlined the brief history of MindGeek, going all the way back to Ouissam Yousef, Matt Keez and Stefane Manos, the origins of Mansef/Manwin and the International Money Laundering charges.
He made the statement that he couldn’t understand why nobody had ever done a story on how Manwin/MindGeek has decimated the industry almost single handedly (and they still haven’t, hint Alex…You guys might want to take some lessons from Charlie Gasperino over at Fox Business news….He gets it…) ) and asked me if I would appear on camera. I agreed to do so. He also asked me for the names of some people who have been affected by Manwin/Mindgeek in particular who would be willing to tell their story on Nightline. Waterfield never even bothered to contact any of them to my knowledge.
I hooked him up with several, including Nate Glass, whom he had already been in contact with. He assured me that he wanted to tell an honest story and that this wasn’t going to be a T&A segment.
Over the course of the next month I gave him the full history on Mansef/Manwin/MindGeek, including all the websites they own and all the companies that they bought.
I explained the Colbeck Capital/Fortress Investment Group financing, told him who the people in charge at Manwin/MindGeek are, including Feras Antoon and David Tassillo. I also gave him the story on Fabian and NATS and Fabians rise and fall from power.
So given all of that info, the piece that they did was little more than “Cotton candy” Journalism. There was little substance to speak of and in the end they were more interested in the porn chick talking about how she would always be naked if she could be than they were in Nate’s attempt to explain the breadth and depth of the piracy problem.
They even dug up Paul Fishbein for God’s sake and most would argue that he is as responsible for Manwins predatory take over as anyone. Fish had a deer in the headlights look and his statement was bout on par with the South Park teache who says “Drugs are bad, mmmmmkay” If Fish had anything of substance to say ABC left it on the cutting room floor.
Watching this made me glad they didn’t make the trip to Atlanta to film me for this piece because I am sure that I would have been edited in the same manner.
In the end it was just an excuse to put half of Adella’s client roster, half dressed on Nightline and tell the world where they can watch them have sex without having to join a site or pay for anything. The only one of Adella’s clients that was noticeably left out was AVN, likely because it is pretty obvious that Manwin/MindGeek is calling the shots over there…..
Damn shame……Makes me wonder if all of “Nightlines” pieces are as poorly presented…..Yes that was rhetorical.
OSHA.gov Search Images from 2/4/14, 2/20/14, 3/8/14 and 4/11/14 should remove any doubt that Five Activity Reports disappeared.
FOIA is moving along to find out why these reports were removed from public view as well as some type of explanation for why three “Nr” (activity numbers) for Kink.com seem to have permanently disappeared while a fourth unique Nr has appeared. OSHA routinely combines complaints and often issues one Citation for multiple Nr but it is highly irregular that three Nr seem to be combined into a fourth unique Nr.
Sx Video Dba So Cal Media and John Staglaino have re-appeared with Violations. Both reports are still listed as open which means this information is subject to change. As of 4-11-14 Sx Video doesn’t show contest (appeal) or payment, Stagliano shows prompt appeal (contest) with a changed/updated Establishment name.
original search 2-4-14 shows the five reports that disappeared
2-20-14 five reports missing
3-8-14 Sx Video is back, Cybernet with new Activity Number but no references to three missing Nr & Stagliano still mia
4-11-14 Stagliano returns with new Establishment name yet Activity Nr remains the same, as does Sx Video. Three Cybernet Activity NR are still MIA and not referenced in docs related to new Activity NR
Links to Updated Sx Video and Stagliano
updated Sx Video showing violations issued 1/3/14 and 2/3/14 without reference to contest or payment. https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/establishment.inspection_detail?id=317025591

updated John Stagliano showing violations issued 2/19/14 promptly contested on 2/27/14 https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/establishment.inspection_detail?id=317143170
Same Number new Name
Based on the run around so far it doesn’t look like OSHA wants to explain this procedural anomaly anytime soon but I’ll update as information warrants.
It has come to my attention that the FSC is fucking over the performers who test at Talent testing Services (which is most performers) It seems the good (Not SO) honest and caring people at the FSC have reserved the subsidy fund only for those who test at CET. When I first asked I was told by an FSC member who didnt want to be named, that t was because they weren’t in PASS and the subsidy fund is only for performers in PASS. It didn’t take very long to prove that to be bullshit, most of the people in PASS test at TTS.
So what is the FSC doing with this money that is earmarked for talent? whose pocket is that going into? The FSC has said all along that they have no connection to CET but this certainly proves otherwise.
I am told the average check is 10-15 bucks every two weeks, so we are talking about roughly 25 bucks a month per performer. As you see…that adds up. theres more than 200 perfprmers testing at TTS for about a year and they haven’t gotten any reimbursement so lets just say they are out 6 months of money, that adds up to 150 bucks owed to each of those 200 performers thats 30K and 60K a year…who is pocketing that cash and why is The FSC playing Favorites here when they claim to be neutral?
Don’t expect the Manwin owned (theres more than one way to own a company) do nothings at AVN to bring this up.
Say what you will about LATATA but they are charging producers an extra 20 bucks and passing that on to talent, no matter who they test with, which is exactly what The FSC SHOULD be doing if they were honest….
I don’t normally report on the gay side of the biz but with Treasure Island medias recent run ins with Cal-OSHA maybe the straight side of the biz needs to take a good look at what thier comrades on the gay side are doing. Im not saying that all gay performers and companies are engaged in this behavior but how many times has the straight side looked the other way when Rob Black or Mark Handel aka Kahn Tusion did the same irresponsible type of shit that eventually got us to exactly where we are with legislation?
Fair warning…don’t read this if you have a weak stomach.

Treasure Island Media’s Viral Loads Features Jar Of HIV-Positive Semen
If you read the press release for Treasure Island Media’s Viral Loads last month and have been on the edge of your seat waiting for the trailer, today’s your lucky day. Featuring Dayton O’Connor, Derek Parker, Drew Sebastian, Blue Bailey, Logan Stevens, and several other HIV-positive gay porn stars cumming into a glass jar labeled “poz cum,” Viral Loads is sure to be a big hit with Cal/OSHA officials.
Just what in the world are they going to do with a jar full of HIV-positive semen? Dump it all inside Blue Bailey’s ass, of course.
Blue Bailey got in touch with me the next day and said he wanted some kind of man-worship initiation. So I took a few days to set it up. When he enters the room, he knows he’s in for a real rite of passage. The willing, hungry lad gets gang-fucked by a roomful of studs. Most are poz, some are neg. Who the fuck cares? Not Blue, that’s for fuckin’ sure. ??To finish up his man worship initiation, we bring out a brimful jar full of more than 200 poz loads. Blue’s good buddies Dayton O’Connor and Drew Sebastian carefully squirt every fucking drop up Blue’s knocked-up ass. Max X slurps Blue’s jizz-leaking ass throughout, establishing himself as the new world’s felching-champion.
Well, thank goodness Dayton and Drew were careful! Who the fuck cares, indeed:
Treasure Island Media isn’t really a gay pornography studio anymore, is it? Now, their business model is 100% focused on spreading infectious diseases. But with today’s drama over AB1576—the proposed California legislation that would mandate condoms and STD testing for all porn productions statewide—TIM might not be able to celebrate infecting people with HIV for much longer. Unless they have enough money to transfer their entire operation out of state? It all seems so pointless. We’re dedicated to letting people give each other HIV, so we moved to Nevada.
The irony, of course, is that while TIM wants to make having sex and becoming infected with HIV feel like some kind of horror movie, many Americans with the virus are living longer, happier, and healthier lives than ever before. But TIM is in the business of terror and death (which is a weird thing to expect people to jerk off to) and this is all they know. It’s all they have left. And there’s still an audience for everything, I guess. Even snuff films.
I am a big fan of your blog and I check it out daily. I find it almost laughable that porn studios in CA wanna go and do business in Las Vegas. Like seriously, the only time the porn industry is invited is only if they are doing awards shows and conventions.
In addition, I think Las Vegas and NV have much stricter rules about sex work, like weekly STI test and that they require all sex workers to be certified and wear condoms. And you gotta add the Mafia and the Cartels into this too. None of them will be too thrilled about porn studios trying to do business here.
Add to the fact Peter has CA-OSHA fines that he will not win an appeal on, and NV OSHA will not give him a break. Hell, the Las Vegas City Council and Commissions will not even give him a business license no matter how much money he has.
It is in Peter’s best interest to stay in CA, pay the CA-OSHA fines, and comply. And if he can’t do that, he just need to shut down and head back to England
I think the commenter that said this was more about Peter cashing in on the office real estate boom in SF than about condom laws pretty much hit the nail right on the head its ALWAYS about the money. Time will tell….I have tried to get Las vegas Nayor Carolyn Goodman to comment on this, and so far her office hasn’t gotten back to me.
Kazoo has a big mouth and his skin is too thin for the business he is in.
The big mouth is an asset to his profession but the thin skin isn’t helping him much and that’s what this is all about. Frankly I could care less if Kazoo and Mike South toss mud pies at each other, its entertaining to see them push each others buttons. For me the funniest rants are when Kazoo is pissed that people aren’t picking up his Tom Toms and marching to his tune.
I can care less if Kazoo pumps up his ego telling ya all about how Mike South’s commenters are noticing him, or if he wants to take pot shots about the comments its fair game. When he starts assigning knowledge or endorsement beyond those comments or site it crosses the line. This isn’t the first time he has taken guilt by association a bit too far, given his history I don’t expect it will be the last either.
Despite reading his posts I’ve never listened to his show and can’t tell you if he carried out his threat to read the email he has or not. Nor can I tell you what he hoped to accomplish since they don’t say anything I haven’t said or commented on along the way. Maybe he wants you to know that I’m less reserved in email than public comment? They sure don’t show knowledge or affiliation with the questions he has for Mike South.
Getting back to this guilt by association thing, a few months ago Kazoo and his buddy Richard were upset folks weren’t marching to Kazoo’s tune. These emails might explain how liking a tune isn’t the same as stepping up to join the band. My comments around that time generated lots of flack when I wouldn’t sign on to the attack against the individuals that shared a table with a pedophile merely because they shared a table. When I name an individual as knowing or endorsing something you can damn sure bet I’ll have more than the fact that somebody else doesn’t like them to back that up. That’s just how I roll and a personal pet peeve that comes second to; If you’re gonna dish it out be prepared to eat some too. Like they say, what goes around comes around.
Its no secret that I’m on the opposite side of the fence as some regarding policy but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a sense of humor or can’t take a joke. Joke all you want, once you start pissing down my back and tell me its raining, be ready to get an umbrella up your ass.
onto the email saga linked to this post…
1. (10-18-13 )Kazoo doesn’t have my first email to your neighborhood, if you care that’s when I raised the very issues in the news this week. Back then I raised the issue of HIV as a loophole in the OSHA OPIM-STI draft, this weeks talk is related to AB1576.
“Wow no HIV antibody screening? even when they determine if vaccinations are needed? They are going to ANTIBODY test for everything but HIV. No saying they CAN’T perform while infected…only that employer must do post exposure testing and meds and the PLHCP determines what activities are limited.”
2. (10-26-13) If he had a public comment forum it would have been posted there.
3. (11-26-13 Kurt Brackob)…initial curiosity about potentially game changing policy has become personal after someone hacked my devices.
4. (11-26-13 Kurt Brackob Continued)…Monica and I have no issues with each other, were each doing our thing.
5. (11-26-13 Hearing You)… but you’re shooting self in foot trying to make folks march to your tune
6. (11-27-13 Kazoo Responds)…FYI I talk shareholders and Boards because my shtick is policy not smear campaigns. BTW congrats on that Meeting, it’s a shame Key Board Warriors aren’t Fairy God-mothers.
7. (11-28-13 Kazoo copies Tweet) … and asks if I Lurk with little kids…I point to ‘real sources” in case he decides to do meaningful research<a
8. (11-28-13 Wares MY Talk show)…Holiday Greetings…definitely not confused about Kazoo’s Joke
December the one and only post I made on Kazoo’s Comment forum …happy hunting if you care.
9. (4-4-14 come on looser)..who can’t take a joke?
10. (4-4-14 wow your a retard)…roflmao, its a damn shame you didn’t appreciate the mud pie
11. (4-4-14 Hey Retard) …now this shit is just too funny
12. (4-4-14 final email)…not sure if this is a peace offering or what…the punch line…kazoo pushed my button, so I pushed his back and damn if that Kazoo didn’t start squawking.
It’s been fun…no hard feelings
PS: Kazoo, Let me know if you want to play again sometime
Entertainment at its best…
Kazoo hasn’t straightened out his knickers yet, hopefully he reads this before he starts ranting and raving on his show making a bigger fool of himself about the situation.
As for begging for sex…maybe that was a bit harsh..after all begging people to suck your dick might not be sex but still could explain having your knickers in a wad if you’re holding that dick out for them to play with.
Hope Kazoo’s day starts looking up.
Ps..My tech ability expanded to inclusion of screenshots…maybe Mike can link the uploaded media to make reading easier.
Update: Yes Rob I knew you were trying to make fun of me…I just had a better punch line.
