CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Performers…Get INSURANCE

I was originally going to make Kayden’s post a separate post for insurance and maybe I should have.  She makes a very valid point.

I know times are tough, they are tough for me as well but if there’s one thing that really frosts my balls it is when a porn chick has a health problem and starts begging for money.

Remember Elexis Monroe? Alexis Raven? Asia Carerra? (Self Proclaimed genius) They were too dumb to get health insurance so they are reduced to begging (or scamming as the case may be) from their fans.  They pissed away more money every month than a health insurance policy would have cost them.  For someone in their 20s right now you can get a decent policy for around 100.00 bucks a month.  Go to Anthem.com if you dont know where to start.

Mind you I am in my 50s and my health insurance is over 4 times that but guess what?  When I needed spinal surgery I wasn’t begging here or on twitter.  When I had sinus surgery I wasn’t on here begging.  yes insurance is a racket, but if you cant afford to pay for your healthcare out of pocket then get it.

At some point it would be nice if someone got together an affordable group policy for performers, someone honest, not Diane Duke and The FSC who will assuredly be taking money from it.

Maybe Lisa Ann, Charity Bangs and or LATATA could make this happen.  I like the idea of LATATA doing it because performers could set it up to be paid out of bookings maybe.

Anyway It needs to be done.

OK Thats my performer PSA O The Day.
