(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- In an exclusive interview with MrWebReview.com, an adult industry news and review website, Video Team owner (VideoTeam.com) Christian Mann talks about the latest HIV scare that has all but shut down the industry.
In a lengthy interview that touches on his past relationships with porn stars and his candid comments about some of today's favorite, Mann even wonders if the industry should begin to heavily use condoms again.
"I can't predict what will happen next," Mann said. "Clearly some changes need to be considered and maybe implemented to make our business more secure for everyone."
Asked if the industry should now push to have condoms included in the majority of scenes, Mann had this to say:
"I only made condom positive videos for several years. I wish all of my peers had done the same. I would be willing to return to that policy if the others would, instead of only Wicked and Vivid. I took the stance that I thought was correct and almost lost all of my market share as reward for my efforts. Being the only condom mandatory company producing ethnic videos was not a good business model. That's why I finally gave in."
