I Hate Waiting Around for Wood

Some of the porn industry’s biggest “stars” are banding together in an effort to get some more rights for the workers. Desmond Wright, the president of the Association for the Protection of Adult Workers cites some of the concerns for adult performers.

“Groin pulls, dry skin, injuries from falls, all these things are major issues for the industry. Many people don’t realize that wrist related injuries are responsible for more lost man hours in the industry than any other injuries combined. These types of injuries result in massive amounts of lost revenue both for workers and for producers. You can imagine what it’s like to get to the end of a scene and a performer has a bum wrist. All of a sudden a clean shoot becomes a wreck and dozens of dollars are lost.

Producers are against the efforts to get worker’s compensation, but when you hear such impassioned cries from major stars in the industry such as this one, I don’t know how you can idly stand by.

“People need to understand that there are a number of workers and performers that go into making an adult film work and we need them to be healthy and happy,” said Briana Banks, one of the industry’s most respected performers. “From fluffers to stunt cocks, these are the people that bring the magic to the movies and they need to be protected just like us stars. If for no other reason than to just make sure shoots go smoothly and we don’t waste time waiting around for wood.”
