HIV Decriminalization

HIV criminalization laws in 32 states that make HIV exposure a crime plus relentless HIV stigma have fueled the prosecution and imprisonment of hundreds of people with HIV in the US, even in states without an “HIV-specific” law.

Sex Work Decriminalization

Leading human rights and public health organizations such as Amnesty International and the World Health Organization agree that in order to adequately address the issue of sex trafficking, sex work must be decriminalized world wide.

Community Priorities

The adult industry is home to a multi-faceted and diverse workforce, which is why we are committed to intersectionality in our approach to serving the communities we represent. Our work must support not only the industry at large, but also the populations that work within the adult industry who have historically been underserved, harassed, and discriminated against by society at large.
This includes but is not limited to issues related to: women’s health and reproductive rights, LGBT rights, immigration, sexual health and wellness, sex education, decriminalization of victims and workers, human trafficking, discrimination, racism, and consent. Join the fight, and support the communities that work within the adult industry.

Industry Priorities

As the trade association of the adult industry, it is our job to defend, protect, and lay the groundwork for our workforce to thrive, even as it faces a seemingly never-ending onslaught of harassment and violence, reinforced by discriminatory policies and fueled by social stigma. From the Supreme Court to the ballot box, we’ve been fighting and winning impossible battles related to censorship, privacy, and worker’s rights for over 25 years. Working with legislators, medical professionals, researchers, and regulators to educating the public, affect policy changes, and litigate on behalf of the entire industry when necessary, is what we do best. As we head into an uncertain future, what we can be sure of is that our community is unstoppable when we unite, no matter how impossible the odds may seem, we win. Join us, and let’s keep winning together.

18 U.S.C. § 2257

18 U.S.C. § 2257, known more commonly in the industry as “2257” is a federal record-keeping law aimed at preventing the use of minors in adult productions. Like most legislation aimed at the adult industry, however, it does very little to protect minors, while offering law enforcement numerous ways to harass adult producers.
