OK…I promised a continuation of analysis of the hijinks that took place last Friday in the 2257 trial, and here it is. The entire day’s worth of events is courtesy of AVN’s Mark Kernes, whose article can be found here.
We pick it up right when Gail Dines,…
I know that the headlines are being dominated now by the latest Pentagon Papers antics of Gleen Greenwald and Edward Snowden, but a smaller tempest in a teapot which could have some major impacts on adult media is currently ongoing.
The case is Free…
I’m reading this and the question most prevalent in my mind is, “What adult industry ‘personnel’ has Gail Dines ever interviewed?”
You know…I figured that since her vaunted government in Iceland who was pushing her antiporn ban legislation got whacked in recent elections, you’d think that Gail Dines would see fit to take a chill pill and rest herself for a spell.
ATTN: Assembly Member Roger Hernandez:
If you Google my “Dave Cummings” stage name, you’ll see that I am Hall of Fame porn performer Dave Cummings,and an 18-year veteran of the Adult Film Industry who also has been a Producer and Director for over 10 years. And, I am a regular voter in California.
I’m also a former military officer of 25 years active duty, and recipient of The Bronze Star; and, I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics, and a Masters Degree in Public Administration.
From an economics viewpoint, enactment of AB 332 seems like it could devastate far too many jobs in California, lower sales tax income and income tax payments to the Great State of California, and cause a costly State enforcement/bureaucracy and funds to implement a silly system that seems unnecessary given the present MORE THAN SATISFACTORY, and rigidly followed, medical testing procedures ALREADY in place for us performers.
In my opinion, passage of AB 332 innately has the potential to push MANY porn productions “underground” or out of California, possibly stripping us performers of some of the workable protections we presently have from the testing regimen already in place. Passage of AB 332 could also possibly result in lessened/lax future compliance by performers of present testing Industry mandates and health protections for actors/actresses, something people like me and many other tax-paying performers and voters are strongly against.
Want an avenue to temporarily side-step your hearing? Postpone it until the Constitutional and other challenges presently already in the Federal Courts are resolved and all appeals are ruled upon. Why spend State of California monies to enact and implement a law that might not pass Constitutional muster!?!?!
Administratively, please share this (FAXED) email ASAP with all your committee members.
Respectfully and sincerely,
David Conners, aka “Dave Cummings”” —

I may not be a native Californian…but if I was, I’d be spreading the word around. Then again, this could easily go nationwide if it passes, anyways. Please….spread the word!!!
In my nearly 10 years as a blogger on sexuality issues, I’ve been very much taken aback by the means in which the Left has been so schzophrenic on sex.
Just as the Right still has their battles between the Religious Right and the Libertarians over just…
LOL!!!! That is all.
