(CANOGA PARK, CA) -- Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS.org) is very proud to announce appointees to the APHSS.org Advisory Committee.

The performer representatives are jessica drake, Bobbi Starr, Danny Wylde and Steve Cruz. Producer representatives are Dan O’Connell (Girlfriends Films) and Steven Scarborough (Hot House Entertainment). Performer Nina Hartley will serve as Educational Advisor, and attorney Karen Tynan has been appointed as Legal Advisor.

The appointees have agreed to a six-month term, as the APHSS.org program is launched and in its initial stages. The responsibilities of committee members are to provide insight and feedback on policies and operation of the APHSS.org. They also will help develop resources for the program to benefit performers and producers.

"This committee is the first of its kind, to allow industry members to have a part in creating a system of self-regulation to uphold health & safety standards for adult productions," FSC Membership/Communications Director Joanne Cachapero said. "FSC, as administrators of APHSS.org, are thrilled to have the input of performers, producers, agents, as well as legal and medical experts to build a solid program to benefit the whole industry."

"The members of the committee are well-known in the adult community and active in production," Cachapero continued. "We could not hope for a better start to APHSS.org."

The APHSS.org website went live on Monday; performers, producers and agents can go there to sign-up for database accounts and view a listing of testing facilities. As the database becomes stocked with performer data, performers and producers will be able to go there and verify work availability status.

Producers that are participating in APHSS.org include Wicked Pictures, Hustler, Vivid Entertainment, Girlfriends Films, Kink.com, Kick Ass Pictures, Pink Visual, and many more that have signed up since Monday.

"We are starting from scratch with this database, so we need the support of the industry to sign up for this program and we ask for everyone to be patient as we ramp up," Cachapero explained.

"What’s important to understand is that without this program in place, there would be no protocols for what to do if there is an HIV outbreak or examination policies for new performers, or policies for medical follow-up for any affected performers." Cachapero continued, "In fact, without a strong system of self-regulation, the door is open for anti-industry zealots to impose over-burdensome and oppressive regulations on adult performers and the industry. "Especially with regard to the challenges presented to the industry by organizations like AHF, it is important to be pro-active about self-regulation. It may cost the performers an extra $50 a year, but with that investment, you are supporting your own well-being and the business interests of the industry. So, we are grateful to the Advisory Committee members for volunteering to help with these efforts."
