Shelley Lubben writes: Secondary Negative Effects on Employees of the Pornographic Industry

This document is a compilation of Shelley Lubben’s research on the porn industry for the past five years and was submitted to Supreme Court Justices in November, 2009. I want to especially thank expert Dr. Judith Reisman for working on it with me and all of you who prayed for God’s Favor at Supreme Court. I have been researching the porn industry for five years now and also experienced the degradation and abuse first hand so I am ready to fight with some serious amunition!

1. The Pornographic Industry Lures a Damaged Population as Its Employees

• 90% are child sexual abuse survivors.
• Degrading, dehumanizing acts required of employees exacerbates disorders.
• As USA/UK welfare, police agencies must “offer/mandate counseling” for staff “viewing
objectionable material” the trauma for the performers of such material is evidential.

2. Secondary negative Effects of Pornographic Workplace on Performers

Sexually Transmitted Diseases

• 66% to 99% of pornography performers are reported with Herpes, a non-curable disease.
• Chlamydia/Gonorrhea among performers is 10x greater than LA County 20-24 year olds.
• 25 HIV cases by performers reported by Adult Industry Medical Healthcare since 2004.
• 70% of STDs in the porn industry occur in females.

Mental Health/Disabilities of Pornographic Workplace Employees

• Suicide and Suicidal Ideation
• Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Sexual Trauma
• Prostitution activities
• Sexual Addiction
• Substance Abuse

3. Public Costs of a Pornographic Workplace: Sex performers, further traumatized by their brutal workplace environs, typically work “three months to three years” putting most on the dole:

• Mental Health—Drug/alcohol/abortion/abuse – require rehabilitation.
• Hospitalization—Drug overdoses/suicides/auto accidents, etc. – require medical aid.
• Government Services—Pregnancies/abortions/PTSD – require social services.
• Child Protection Services—Child abuse/neglect/battery/abandonment – foster care, etc.
• Women, Infant Children (WIC)—Food/nutrition – aid for low-income women, children.
• Unemployable—due to job gap, common lack of high school diploma and dysfunctions.
• Law Enforcement—Prostitution/domestic violence, etc. – require police, judicial time.
• Jails and Prisons—Drugs/prostitution/DUI/domestic violence – parole, incarceration.

4. To Avoid Taxes, Federal & State Workplace Safety Laws & Thus to Stay in Business, the Pornographic Industry Falsely Dubs Employees “Independent Contractors.”

• In Robert Deupree, Petitioner, V. Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, etc., (08-815) March 2, 2009 Petition DENIED by the US Supreme Court a pornographic performer contracted HIV allegedly due to employer-violation of standard workplace safety practices.
• Like most pornographic employers, “Defendants” charged that said employee was an “independent contractor.”
• The court ruled that she (who like most pornographic performers suffers from multiple pre-existing pathologies) was an employee, thus entitled to workplace safety.
• The bloodborne pathogens standard for “employee” protection requires that employers:

“…use feasible engineering and work practice controls to protect workers from coming into contact with blood or other disease-carrying body fluids (referred to in the standard as “other potentially infectious material,” or “OPIM”). Semen and vaginal fluid are always considered OPIM. Any other body fluid is considered OPIM if it’s visibly contaminated with blood. Saliva is considered OPIM in connection with dental procedures because these procedures routinely cause saliva to be contaminated with blood…The kind of contact prohibited by the standard is contact between skin or mucous membranes and blood or OPIM.”

5. Conclusion

Ms. Lubben concludes, “the majority of pornographic films currently produced involve direct contact between skin or mucous membranes and blood, semen, vaginal fluid, saliva and other OPIM.

Since these exchanges of potentially hazardous fluids clearly violate even minimal health safety measures, the majority of pornographic films being produced would be in violation of extant safety laws.”

“In addition, recognizing pornographic performers as employees—directed and controlled by the employer17—will finally provide these commonly already disabled pornographic employees with the health insurance, tax supports and disability benefits commonly provided by employers to other workers in the United States of America.”
