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."

I Nominate Dr. Riggs For The PASS Medical Advisory Board

Much has been said about the PASS Medical Advisory board, except what they actually do, and who they are. I have heard a few doctors names in the past, but I have never heard who any of the performers are on this advisory board. I’ve never heard when they meet, what they discuss, or how they educate performers.

But their is a doctor who has been associated with the adult industry for a very long time that nobody ever seems to want to talk about, and that is Dr. Riggs of West Oaks Urgent Care. I have only spoken to Dr. Riggs twice, and one time was before I had any involvement with the adult industry. I have no problems with Dr. Riggs, he provides a much needed service, and has been providing that service for over a decade, so he must be doing something right.

As a doctor that has been involved with the industry for years, I am sure he is well aware of the health needs of this specific population beyond just testing for stds. That is USUALLY what performers go to Dr. Riggs for, things other than std testing, although he does alot std testing of performers also.

Who better to represent the health needs of adult industry performers than the doctor who has been providing these services for over a decade? He could certainly see through the baloney talking points of the FSC, seeing how he has been dealing with the consequences of what happens on porn sets for years. Obviously performers trust him, they keep going back.

Of course it will never happen, but wouldn’t it it be interesting if it did. Come on Dr. Riggs, after all these years of being the behind the scenes guy to go to, its time you step up and become part of the system. Your clilnic has been the number one place where performers go to “get around” the system for years, time for you to become part of it, which you really already are.

PS. For several years my lab also contracted with West Oaks Urgent Care. Amazing how many of the same names I saw over the years, and what they were there for.

The truth about West Oaks Urgent Care is the truth about the adult industry. West Oaks provides great service to their patients, I am in no way insinuating they do anything less. Funny how the industry will disregard HIPPA when it suits them, and at the same time use it as a shield to the truth.
