In so much of the mainstream media coverage of the recent outbreak, what is conspicuous by its absence are the voices of performers, who, after all, are the ones in the trenches that ultimately suffer the effects of STDs if they're transmitted in the making of porn. Thankfully, many current and former performers blog, and a number of them have had quite a bit to say about the recent outbreak and what steps the industry should take. They have a variety of positions on what needs to be done, but all represent a far better informed position than I'm hearing from the current crop of public health officials and activists.
