Talent - How They Should Be Protected

Protecting our talents interest and health is something we all need to look at. There is no doubt that the HIV+ event has caught our attention in the adult business. The question that is at hand is how serious everyone is going to take it.
The rumors of the business going on stand down for 60 days is something that we all should worry about. The health of our talent is most important here so I fully support it. Just like each and everyone of you, we make a living from this very product we call talent! So, it does effect us all in some way or another. This is just a little wake up call to reality of the business! Hopefully, we all will appreciate the talents and their abilities to do what they do.
We have asked all our talent to prepare themselves for a slow next couple months because of this. One thing that I think should be finally applied to the protection of our talents is using condoms. Not only at this crisis at hand, but from now on! That is not going to happen with the high demand of this style of shooting. Since there is a rise of heavy shooting overseas in the last year or so, I do think we should try keeping the adult talent here in the states. Nothing against any other race or anything like that but we have to try containing our talent to a smaller scale by sticking to the USA.
I also think that the couples of the adult business should start pushing hard now at this time of our need for talent to work. I also suggest that any talent out there that has a certain partner that he/she wants to work with, that they should apply that right now to help in the containment of this whole event. We have very little male talent around so this is going to hurt the mass of girls but it is the best thing for the business. I know that a lot of the companies are going to shoot no matter what and I just hope that you do whatever it takes to protect the talent by any of the above suggestions. Lets all work together to get through this and we can maybe grow stronger from it. Our thoughts go out to Darren James and all the talents who are involved in this terrible event.
