Diane Duke did the press release through the usual press release sites, she hasn’t contacted me.
As of now I do believe this story to be true I have independent verification as well as contact from someone claiming to be one of the exposures.
if anyone has any info I want to hear it TY
More as it develops.
The previous story has now been confirmed, there are two cases of antibiotic resistant Gonorrhea in the industry. Most exposures have been notified.
At least a few of the exposures are opting to go to their own doctors and are avoiding industry doctors and clinics, cant blame them after the way others have been treated.
More as this breaks.
This is a very big deal because unlike HIV and even HEP Gonorrhea is very contagious and these strains may well be “uncureable” according to the CDC. Part of the problem is that the drug companies have not been investing in antibiotics research to develop new antibiotics, not much money in that. The other part of the problem is over prescribing antibiotics. When you combine that with performers going to Mexico and buying the antibiotics to resell here so that they pass their drug tests porn becomes a particularly hazardous breeding ground for these “super” bacteria.
Just when I thought it’d be a slow week….heres what i know so far
This is a bad story. I am hearing that there are two new gonorrhea cases one a female in Los Angeles, the second a male who is currently in Florida. I’m not sure if the two cases are related but they likely are and this time it’s an antibiotic resistant gonorreah.
Both tested positive about three weeks ago, took meds, and are still positive.
Both were given another round of antibiotics, and both insisted that they were not having contact with anybody, and still coming up positive.
Both cases have been reported to the CDC.
Between the two of them they had contact with 12 females, and 4 male performers, and an unknown number of private contacts.
The industry should declare a moratorium until ALL performers are tested.
They generally announce the Wed before Thanksgiving at Noon PST.
It used to be a much bigger deal than it is now.
One of the highlights of my blogging career came in 2008 when I looked at the AVAwards site and looked at the URL for the previous years nominations (2008)
I used the same naming conventions to see if the (not yet posted) 2009 nominations were there…and there they were….AVN had not yet released them so I broke the nominations out a full week early, before AVN had announced them.
The story is here http://www.mikesouth.com/mikesouth-exclusives/avn-award-noms-are-posted-a-mikesouthcom-exclusive-2410/
Needless to say AVN went into a complete tizzy, I got calls from Fish, and dozens of people wanting to know how I got the noms before they were announced…I never told, until now.
Apparently they figured it out though because they never made that mistake again.
he also uses the twitter handle @iscottstephens
as well as the email addy firstname.lastname@example.org
also is on the twitter handle adultstarlife
It is also my understanding that there are more photos of him out there if you have one without the glasses please send it to me…thanks
lets get the word out y’all put this shit stain outta our business.
WOW I have a mountain of emails on this scumbag and not one of them is good, everyone from agencies to websites to production companies. Seems the only people who deal with him anymore are devils Films and of course Manwin via Bang Bros and Reality Kings.
Word to Frank Lipari at manwin you really need to stop paying these scumbags for talent, it’s going to come back and bite you in the ass soon if you dont.
Anyway seems I put the hurt on him, he wont contact me but he has threatened several of the girls and he has tried to DMCA his photo off my blog through my hosting company. Since i dont want to involve them in the fight a quick search found the photo on the net so it is now linked from there….You want it down douchebag? Talk to me…and good luck Im not some little girl you can push around shit stain….Bring it Scott Sparks of Irving, TX
To all the people who have thanked me for shining a light on this cockroach…My pleasure y’all. keep the 411 coming.
As quick as the post on Scott Sparks went up he cancelled his twitter accounts and sent threats to every girl he was impersonating. he even tried to email me as Mey Li. He then started bitching to my hosting company and others…funny thing the pussy wont talk to me….Thats always the case with these lowlifes. Anyone with more info on this guy please let me know. It is my understanding that several girls have filed police reports that he is making terroristic threats, I am co-operating and will turn over all info I have on him. Let this serve as a warning to the other scumbags out there doing this sort of thing, Scott isnt the only one on my radar I am tired of this shit, you make the good guys look bad and we dont like it. I’m coming for you.
This guy came on to my radar recently, He is one of the lowlifes that trolls twitter, facebook and the like looking for girls to do porn. He will say that he is an agent and he has loose connections to Bang Bros (Why does that name come up over and over with these douchebags?..I tell ya why it’s because they pay them a finders fee) Anyway he will claim that he owns part of Bang Bros/Reality Kings/Devils Films/Manwin and others ( he doesn’t) In reality he will send you to Reality Kings or Bang Bros and he will get a finders fee) for most of these skid marks thats where it ends, but not with this guy, he will claim to be the girls “agent” and he will set up email addresses, facebook and twitter accounts in their name and he will make contact with companies trying to get them work, pretending to actually be the girl.
He preys exclusively on Black Girls so far
His only real connection to porn is that he is a former member of digitalplayground.com pay site.
When a girl decides to move on that’s when he goes Donny Long. He will use the info he has on her and contact and threaten her family and friends, He will threaten her, he will contact potential employers using the email he set up and he will say that she was underage, or no longer available to work or that he is her father or any number of things like that.
He has recently claimed to be from Atlanta but he is not, He is from Irving Texas where he owned the now defunct company Medoccom.
The address for Medoccom was
7750 N McArthur Blvd, Suite 120 PMB 200
That address is a mail drop not a real company but the company was registered as a TX LLC until April 2012
He has used the names Scott Stevenson, Scott Stephenson and Scott Sparks, Scott Sparks is his real name.
He uses the phone number 214 695 7720 (Cell number through SW Bell)
He uses the following email addresses
he also use the emails and twitter and facebook of the girls he is pretending to be or represent
He has recently popped up on twitter using the handle PrimeOptimus3
If you have any more info on this guy, particularly recent emails or any recent info on him please send it to my email
I had a dream Wednesday night, it was your run of the mill benign dream, I was talking to Stormy Daniels, someone I have been friends with for years. It wasn’t a sex dream, we were just talking about run of the mill stuff, I dont even remember what it was, but when I woke up, I thought …ya know Stormy has always represented this biz really well. I remembered Jenna’s “I will never spread my legs again speech, and I remembered Stormy coming on stage immediatly afterwards and proclaiming that she would continue to spread her legs for this business.
I remembered thinking to myself, that was as good of a save as anyone could have done.
And I thought to myself I need to write about this, because considering recent events, there is a post in this.
As you all know Jenna has made something of a return to the biz and we have seen her all over the tabloids and even the mainstream talk shows in various incoherent states.
When it was first announced that Jenna Jameson would be hosting the XBiz Awards I decided to lay off her and give her a chance, she proved herself to be the same old Jenna, maybe worse.
Maybe XBiz chose her because of the train wreck factor, figuring people would attend hoping to see the train wreck, maybe this was planned from the get go. It would seem to me, however that it would make more sense to reward the people who have been loyal to this industry. the people who have represented us well, not the people who have bad mouthed us, perpetuated negative stereotypes and given absolutely nothing back to the biz.
Wouldn’t Stormy Daniels have been a much better choice? She is the one in my dream that inspired this post but there are others, Vicky Vette comes readily to mind. Why don’t we reward the people who make us look good, who are fair and honest business people and have given something back to the industry.
Starlet Box cover
I watched a movie last night on Netflix instant queue that made me think…A Lot.
The movie title is “Starlet” and Netflix has the unrated version. The movie was a rich character study about an aspiring young adult film starlet and a cranky and hermit-like elderly woman. I don’t want to give away anything about the movie because it is worth a look, particularly from a character development standpoint.
And it has explicit sex, not much, but it is certainly there and it is hardcore by anyones definition.
The movie made me think of porn’s golden age, when porn was made by people with backgrounds in theater.
I saw my first porn movie in 1976, I was 19 yeas old and the movie was “Deep Throat”. In some ways that movie is likely responsible for me getting into porn, because had it just been the typical uninspired porn that you see so much of these days I likely would never have seen another one, but it was fun and it didn’t take itself too seriously yet it still told a story and the characters were people you could identify with. Movies like Barbara Broadcast, The Devil in Miss Jones, Behind the Green Door, Debbie Does Dallas, The Opening of Misty Beethoven, they explored sexuality in a way that it had never been explored on film and they always did it in a way that the viewer could identify with the characters. Sex wasn’t the contact and often violent act that it is now, it was a little clumsy yet very realistic. The Male actors were mens men, and most of them were classically trained in Theater. Paul Thomas for example was in a very popular and controversial Broadway Play called “Jesus Christ Superstar”, PT played Judas. Likewise John Leslie, Jamie Gillis and Randy West (as well as others) could actually act, as could many of the females.
Back then the focus stayed on the female during the sex scenes, she was more realistically portrayed, she was almost always submissive and care was taken to accentuate her femininity in the camerawork. The guys were just average guys like most of the guys watching the movies. In his private life Jamie Gillis may have been bi-sexual but you wouldn’t know it by watching his character in most of his movies, he was every man’s man.
Even the ones that were somewhat short on good acting like the infamous Johnny Wadd movies by Bob Chinn had real stories, real character development and provided for an escape from reality into a fantasy (as a movie should do). These days the escape is more of a ten or fifteen minute break to rub one out while watching two (or more) robotic performers compete for who can overpower the other in terms of volume, preening for the camera and the result has al of the eroticism of two stray dogs fucking.
Getting back to Starlet why is it that we in porn can’t do that? The same movie with more hardcore would have made for a great movie as well, “9 1/2 Weeks” is another story that could have been a great carrier for for a movie with explicit sex.
One reason we can’t do it is because we have precious few people in porn that have even an inkling of how to tell a story with a camera, they have no comprehension of even the most basic things like the rule of thirds, crossing the line, conflict etc. And when it comes to writers that can write a real screenplay with character arcs and all of that we have even fewer, matter of fact we may not have any, but I would bet there is no shortage of people who could and would.
Starlet had a few cameos in it from porn actors and actresses, namely Asa Akira and Manuel Ferrara but they were just very short minimal dialogue ( Manuel was in the explicit sex scene.) But the Female lead, Dree Hemingway, can act and does a great job of it, I dunno if they used a body double for her sex scene but it didn’t appear so. There are a few people in porn that can actually act but even our best would need to really step up their game. We don’t have real actors anymore, like Jamie Gillis or Paul Thomas and as for the girls Melissa Hill was a damn good actress, I don’t know of anyone currently in the biz that could pull off a serious female lead but I do know that for a project like this shot in L.A. there would be no shortage of real actresses that would likely want to.
I would say to Steven Hirsch or Steve Orenstein to can the parodies stop remaking “The Devil In Miss Jones” or whatever and try for something that really is award worthy, try to make a real movie, I’m betting you would find there is a real market for it.
Monica Foster broke the story and of course the Kazoo is blowing it way out of proportion but it does raise some troubling questions.
Kurt Brackob has been showing up at FSC luncheons and fundraisers this year, Kurt Brackob has been convicted and sentenced to seven years in prrison in Romania for “sexual relations with minors”..
One would think that Diane Duke and the FSC would be more careful about whom they choose to invite to their functions, it wouldn’t have taken much to turn up this guys past.
There is no indication that Julie meadows or Marc Randazza would or could have known anything about him and despite the noise coming out of the Kazoo marc Randazza has no affiliation with the FSC, he is not a board member, nor is Julie, Julie is a part of the FSC puppet org called APC4C or something like that.
But it is never good for this biz to have any association with anyone who has ever been convicted of sexual crimes against children.
This post is pulled from my comments by someone who obviously has a long history in this biz and knows and understands how the FSC is in deep. There is a lot to digest here but if you simply look at the timeline and the questions like why DID they do that it all starts coming together.
Sorry in advance for long post..big on facts..low on comments. Many Questions for FSC and the Industry Stakeholders it represents.
Is AHF really the big bad wolf blowing their house down? This is a case that they tore it down themselves and cry wolf whenever someone points out…hey your house is broke.
1. Is there a way to verify this 95% decrease leaked to mainstream media at least five days before FSC posted on their site?
2. How nice FSC blames AHF for the lost permit revenue and related jobs..AWWOOOHPH
3. “Los Angeles County enacted an ordinance to improve the safety of workers in the Adult Film Industry. Effective December 14, 2012, the ordinance, Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry, requires all adult film producers filming in unincorporated county areas or in any city that has adopted Los Angeles County Health and Safety Code, Title 11, Chapter 11.39, to obtain an Adult Film Production Public Health Permit. The Act conditions any film permit issued by the County for the production of an adult film on the use of condoms and other safety precautions to minimize the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and authorizes the Department of Public Health (DPH) to take appropriate measures to enforce the Act.” (LACHD website)
Los Angeles County Health and Safety Code, Title 11, Chapter 11.39
California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Sections 3203 and 5192
5. LACHSC effective 12/14/2012; CCR effective 1991
6. February 2009 FSC publishes FIRST EVER health & safety manual for the adult industry. (FSC, AVN to verify) which stakeholder(s) insisted on TROJAN brand condoms?
7. The nice FSC health and safety manual was NEVER INTENDED TO KEEP ANY PERFORMER SAFE!!!! It was for OSHA policy compliance and related fines reduction. (To say otherwise FSC/stakeholders have to show that they actually implemented what they wrote)
8. Duke didn’t present that published health and safety manual to OSHA as way of “cooperating to create industry appropriate guidelines” she copy and pasted 45 pages of essentially worthless stuff hiding the few ‘specific relevant industry specific’ pages in the muck. The document listed three classes of actors …offering varied protections! (8/11/2010 for 8/18/2010 OSHA mtg)
9. FSC matched AHF voice for voice at every OSHA mtg, be it open forum at regularly scheduled, special, or advisory. (OSHA minutes 2010 to 2013) (Haven’t researched LACHD yet..)
10. 1998 Workers comp case starts…AIM is created as a non-profit, doesn’t have proper medical facility licensing.
11. 2007 July 20, AVN does its last ever report on the case…in depth details of the hearing. 10 days later x-biz does a great q/a with a Industry attorney re workers comp…no where is AHF mentioned in the two part in depth report, it does reference the 2004 HIV case that woke up OSHA. California legislators opinion that actors and performers are employees doesn’t stop at mainstream.
12. Verifying dates..(lost paper in notes Dupree v. California WC appeal Board.
13. I can go on and on and on…I can do math too over $25 million worth conservatively!!!!
The bare minimum a performer paid for 12 tests is 1500 x 1200 for 1.8 mill a year…with a conservative cost and even more conservative #performers testing after AIM opened to address ON SET HIV TRANSMISSION
1.8 million annually 1998 thru 2004 when OSHA woke up = 10.8 million employees reported as income, then paid out for employer expenses! This doesn’t include one thin dime for costs related to treating the disease brought on set by bad prostitutes who bring their filth to the good performers.
2004 more HIV more 1.8 million annually till 2011 when AIM is closed. 12.6+10.8= $25.2 million
Now we have agents and producers paying a fee to FSC see y/n availability for the performers paying for the tests FSC/STAKEHOLDERS shout from every roof top..OUR testing system works..of course it works you’re sharing in an annual cash jackpot paid by your employees..the ones you tell we can’t discriminate against HIV, HepC..check out some of the published opinions by INDUSTRY ATTORNEYS..disclaimer aside..they didn’t publish the opinions for shoots and giggles. They covered their asses by publicly informing you of your duties.
2009/2010 more HIV and health records violation via improperly licensed AIM with inadequate record keeping. FSC fixes that…with another jackpot!
APHSS …how many paid to see Y availability (n=next) based on testing performers who paid their cash to AFFILIATED testing centers? isn’t FSC smart…they fixed that problem by adding TWO more income streams …now they get a percentage of what performers pay to be available to them & make the agents/producers pay them to see it. Lets up the number to an even 2 million with the added national performer testing cash kicking back affiliation fees. (Got a retired attorney sitting at my side that explained exactly how it’s done, he was doing it thirty years ago moving guys from NYC to Delaware..if it didn’t happen prove it! he will eat his wheelchair)
2012 testing system that works…doesn’t AGAIN. FSC stakeholder (Manwin) generously antes 50k for a five months for testing reimbursement…lots of noise from other copyright stakeholders over tube sites stealing revenue. 50k @130 month = 385 performers to test that month. real number much lower with added syphilis tests medicines and costs…out of their nonexistent pay performers need to find a way to pony up..save you the cost of testing..and you’re a swell guy for giving them back SOME of their money. AWWOOOOOPH what did AHF have to do with this?
2012 A well known producer begs performers to stand up for their choice against big bad AHF and Measure B..while bragging about how he mismanaged all his money living it up and partying until the tax man caught up to him. How much of the ONE million raises to fight measure B came out of performer pockets?
2012 lawyers are covering their asses again…publicly stating their opinion about potential liability issues and advantages to moving protecting corporate assets and shielding personal assets via corporate umbrellas. FSC can’t cry we had bad legal advise when the wolves are huffing and puffing their house down.
2013 the great testing system that works…doesn’t AGAIN…now it’s really ugly the HepC talked about Oct 2004 is back so is HIV
June CET & TTS start offering HepC for free. Now folks when the labs make a public statement offering free HepC and B tests on a 45 day schedule, they didn’t suddenly dream up Hep awareness month…my bet is…they tried to get the protocol changed via FSC and failed, w FSC taking the position that performers would cry foul at paying more and (NFW) we ain’t paying..if it isn’t on the panel we don’t need to know about it. Docs afraid they might get zinged for determining MEDICALLY FIT vs diseased soon after a syphilis out break that shut down production just might forgo profits and CYA…
August magically within days of performer being outed for HepC since 2010 here’s FSC to the rescue….just like how many other times FSC looked at their crystal ball to PLAN NEW TESTING and now were moving it up…new twist this time it’s 2x a month. FSC/stakeholders get to keep 3-4 million annually.
Some watchdogs they are! AWOOOOOHPH
August 28 HIV Positive….same day…FSC renames PASS.
Go search FSC…they are yanking APHSS stuff off their site left and right..yes what you post can be used against you.
They removed the APHSS/PASS button and link from their site..
Checked today..APHSS.org is for sale…wonder what happened to that not-for-profit organization? Nice set up a nonprofit…take fees for the service to agents/producers in the name of protecting performer HIPPA, grab some affiliation fees from the approved providers, Pay Officers for all their hard work to administer this great work of charity because FSC cares so much about performer safety.
Manta shows that on October 4,2013 Dr.Maio changed his status to employee of CET, effectively erasing the data that previously showed 4 employees and estimated annual earnings. TTS remains the same. Not even gonna guess..just stating fact.
FSC isn’t speaking to the Industry at large..FSC/STAKEHOLDERS are too busy covering their asses, trying to convince the world that AHF is the big bad wolf.
Sorry if I made my case long ago…still have tons of data and info to support it if you aren’t convinced. Btw..if you aren’t..I don’t care..this is my opinion based on this information.thanks for reading this far, please do all you can to keep performers safe on set.
So now we have Pornhub is writing Obama to offer services to fix ailing Healthcare.gov website that the big bad Republicans want to shutdown…
The whole idea that AHF is the bad guy is getting thin? Now we say we care cuz we can fix Healthcare.gov and our testing works?
The FSC has lots of EARLY nominations indicating power struggles over money or direction…CEO, COO serves at will of largest Stakeholder who places or takes his votes on the board and calls it a day.
Diane Duke is certainly raking in numerous officer compensation checks through FSC is she a puppet or puppeteer?
One thing I know..when it comes to any nonprofit…especially those set up to shield corporate income….when the money gets too important it gets gone…embezzlement…lost revenue streams…mismanagement…Lacey can surely make that point better than I. [Mike I have long heard and even suspected that the Real purpose of the FSC was to launder money but nobody has ever really been able to prove that, one reason being because they have never been audited nor will they open their books to anyone, including members]
Biggest fear…FSC throwing all the affiliated testing centers under the bus in attempt to deflect liability. Then the new big bad wolf is the lawsuit that took away your testing facilities. So I had three guys yapping this…this…me while trying to make sense and condense …not a strong suit on my best day
[This part caught my attention as well..Dr Miao seems to be disassociating himself from any kind of management role at CET, that is telling]
Dr MAIO becoming an employee is very significant. “Young pups” say FSC preplanned the escape plan from APHSS…didn’t just happen in August. PASS may stand for whatever…better than that…anyone searching through their stuff can’t find shit…lawyers trick.
According to The Free Speech Coalition it is and the mainstream press is eating it up hook, line and sinker. It makes for good copy but how much of it is actually reality?
My guess is, not much.
Porn has been slowing down for about five years and this year it seems to have pretty much hit the wall. DVD sales are terrible, website sales are down, pirated content is everywhere, STDs are rampant. All of that adds up to fewer people shooting, A LOT FEWER and that in turn adds up to fewer permits.
One thing I do notice is that despite the harping from Diane Duke and the FSC Dan Leal at Immoral productions is making plenty of money and he is shooting more and more and he is following all the laws including the condom laws.
I don’t think the condom law is much more than a scapegoat for an industry that has, for the most part, forgotten how to make good porn and has lost its customer base because of that.
The most successful porn market on the planet is Japan, they are making money hand over fist and they are releasing ten times the product on DVD the rest of the world combined does and they have a lot bigger obstacle to overcome than a condom on the penis, they have to pixellate the genitals, male and female, to overcome this they have learned how to actually shoot the scene in an appealing and erotic manner, something Porn Valley has long since forgotten.
I would say to you that if your company is in a sales slump you might considering getting rid of the so called directors you have and hire some that understand erotica, blaming The Condom Law plays well on The LA Times but it aint whats wrong with porn.
You can read the full story HERE
The last thing the director did before shouting “action” was serve Amber a slice of pizza. She understands now that it was a ploy: one final nod to normalcy before upending her life forever. But back then, at age 15, she was too distracted by the party and the promise of easy money to realize she had been duped into porn.
At first, she was told she would be in a music video, then that she’d be an extra in a strip scene. Sit in the background and smile, she recalls being told. All for an easy $100. Instead, the teen beauty queen soon found herself having sex on camera with a man nearly twice her age — a man who would be accused of murder.
“I was manipulated,” says Amber, now 18 years old. “They were putting digits in my face and throwing a good-looking guy at me. I was 15 and surrounded by temptation. It messed up my whole life.”
Broward Sheriff’s Office
Porn star John Snavely was fired after it was revealed he had sex with a minor on- and off-set.
Amber (not her real name) isn’t alone. At least two other underage girls have appeared in films for Miami porn mogul Jeffrey Greenberg in the past three years, according to court and police records. Amber says the real number might be much higher.
Technically, of course, this is child pornography, and making it could carry up to ten years in prison. But for Greenberg, that risk appears to be just the cost of doing business. A certified public accountant who has never been convicted of a crime, he has become one of the biggest players in porn over the past decade. As manager or director of Miami’s two biggest sex studios, BangBros and Reality Kings, he presides over an estimated $18 million empire. His name is behind scores of websites specializing in everything from MILFs to Latinas to something titled Team Squirt. And because his companies film thousands of women per year, he is almost single-handedly responsible for South Florida’s emergence as an epicenter of adult film.
When underage girls such as Amber get pulled into this vortex of vice, lawyers for Reality Kings or BangBros sometimes pay them to shut up, police and court records show. She won’t divulge how much she received because she’s afraid of losing the money, but her anger is audible in her carefully chosen words. “What they did to me was very, very wrong.”
Neither Greenberg nor his attorneys would speak to New Times about claims by Amber and the other two girls. “BangBros takes age verification procedures very seriously,” a spokeswoman told New Times.
Florida statutes say “ignorance of a minor’s age, a minor’s misrepresentation of his or her age, a bona fide belief of a minor’s age, or a minor’s consent may not be raised as a defense in a prosecution for [child pornography].” Yet it’s often a “proof problem,” says Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office spokesman Ed Griffith. “Prosecutors have an ethical responsibility to believe they have sufficient evidence to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. Lacking such evidence, it is unethical for a prosecutor to go forward.”
Instead, Greenberg’s attorneys came to a secret agreement with Amber’s mother. The family was given an undisclosed amount of money in exchange for keeping quiet about the sordid underage sex affair. Snavely, meanwhile, was fired.
But what cops apparently didn’t know was this wasn’t the first child porn incident involving one of Greenberg’s companies. One month before Amber’s first shoot, Reality Kings had been sued by Sherrita Smalley, the mother of a 15-year-old girl from Nevada who had run away to Miami and used a fake ID to shoot porn under the name Bieyanka Moore. And then there was Amber’s friend, a 17-year-old from Hialeah who didn’t sue or go to the cops but is mentioned in a police report.
“I know I wasn’t the only girl,” Amber says. “There were other underage girls I saw there that were using fake IDs. Out of 1,000 girls they use [at Venetian Productions], probably a good 100 are underage. They weren’t strong enough with their security measures.”
One of my commenters made a very interesting point this weekend.
I applaud Axel Brauns decision to raise the minimum age to perform in his movies to 21, and for the record I seriously doubt that he will have any problems as a result. But technically is it legal? Can you deny employment to someone who is otherwise completely qualified based on age?
As my reader pointed out, if you are making MILF movies you have the right to cast MILFs to fulfill your artistic vision but to make a statement that you are not hiring anyone for any reason under the age of 21 would be pretty cut and dry age discrimination.
Don’t get me wrong I have recently come to the conclusion myself that maybe 21 isnt a bad idea to be legally mandated, in which case it would not be discriminatory from a legal standpoint. I think Axel Braun is absolutely making a smart decision.
Interesting question I think.
