    Financial Attacks on Legal Adult Entertainer Workers Continue

    First Congress passed and President Trump signed the FOSTA and SESTA acts which were so poorly written that  websites like Craigslist had to shut down their entire personals section (which included listings like people looking for jogging partners).

    Then liberal Elizabeth Warren and conservative Marco Rubio co-sponsored a bill that would force banks to shut down both legal and illegal adult entertainers accounts.

    The onslaught continues as we’ve recently discovered Patreon (a web platform that allows creators to collect subscriptions for the work) is closing the accounts of many legal adult entertainers including cam models, other erotic models and independent adult film studios.

    All this is supposedly being done to combat sex trafficking. The International Entertainment Adult Union stands against all forms of non-consensual sex. Yet we recognize that many people engaged in legal adult entertainment are being endangered and impoverished by these actions. The only real winners here will be the hypocritical politicians who are too lazy to actually solve problems and their prudish donors.

    Adult entertainers who are impacted by these draconian measures must organize, stand up and demand that the attacks against them stop!

    All Adult Entertainers!

    The I.E.A.U.

    stance on the  FOSTA Bill

    The International Entertainment Adult Union organizes workers in entertainment industries where one must be 18 or older to participate. Our union supports healthy, non-coerced sex between consenting adults and the audiences that appreciate them. Our members engage in legal activity and we are firmly against sex trafficking, child molestation and other forms of forced sex.

    Congress recently passed FOSTA; HR 1865 in an attempt to address sex trafficking. A good target but with bad aim.

    This will have unintended consequences that impact legitimate websites and legal adult performers. A better way to address this issue would be to encourage unionization of the adult-performer industry. We need a union card check law, the enforcement of current labor laws and an end to attacks on labor. Unions do not allow their members to be victims.

    The Amicus Brief 

    The I.E.A.U. has submitted an Amicus Brief to the California Supreme Court in support of Exotic Dancers. Posted below are the Statment of Interest (why we were both compelled and entitled to submit this breif) and then the brief itself.

     The International Entertainment Adult Union ("I.E.A.U.") represents and advocates for workers in entertainment-related industries where one must be 18 or older to participate. This includes exotic dancers.  I.E.A.U.'s advocacy on behalf of exotic dancers includes preventing their misclassification as "independent contractors" because our experience shows that their work is largely controlled by club owners, and they are, in reality, employees.  Misclassification of exotic dancers (and other adult entertainers) denies them basic employment protections including those provided by wage and hour and health and safety laws and regulations.  This denial allows the employers to unfairly shift their business costs to their employees and society as a whole while giving them an unfair competitive advantage over those business that comply with the law.

    The   I.E.A.U. also works to fight stereotypes that adult performers are somehow morally inferior to others, which lead to a social stigma that impacts the personal lives of adult entertainers, including exotic dancers, and makes it more likely such workers are harassed and bullied and stalked long after their dancing days are over.  THe I.E.A.U. believes such harmful stereotypes has facilitated approval of the insulting settlement in this case, which is based in part on the idea that the dancers in this class are "transient," which is closely associated with the notion that they are unreliable. I.E.A.U. strongly opposes settlement on these terms, and for the reasons set forth in this brief.


    Approving a settlement that extinguishes the claims of a class of all female exotic dancers based on inadequate, reversionary consideration despite an abysmal claims rate and despite unique and disturbing settlement terms is inappropriate because it places the Court’s imprimatur on the scofflaw club owners’ dogged attempts to end run basic employment protections.  All workers in California (and elsewhere) deserve the basic employment protections provided by federal and state law.

    Adult entertainers?(at least entertainers – covers more of a wide range. No need to call names, the actions should be clear enough if not present some of the facts that will be obvious to reader how they get around the laws.



    (H.R. 3783) to amend section 223 of the Communications Act of 1934 to require persons who are engaged in the business of selling or transferring, by means of the World Wide Web, material that is harmful to minors to restrict access to such material by minors.



    Entertainment film contract, which is an agreement specifying the employment terms of the performer by the pornographer.2 Generally, an adult entertainment film contract would be unenforceable because sexual consideration goes against public policy.3 However, in the recent years, courts have begun to legalize the creation of adult entertainment.
