PHILADELPHIA, PA – FEBRUARY 3, 2016 – Aiming to unite the estimated 10 million people who work within the adult entertainment industry worldwide, The International Entertainment Adult Union, or I.E.A.U., was formed in December 2015 and has been registered with the U.S. Department of Labor. While still in the early stages of organizing their board and working towards establishing local chapters, the I.E.A.U. was on hand recruiting some of the top talent from the adult entertainment industry at the 2016 XBIZ Show, an annual business-to-business adult entertainment industry event, held recently in West Hollywood, California. The I.E.A.U.’s goals include protecting the rights of adult entertainment workers, establishing affordable health insurance, fighting against child pornography and sex trafficking as well as sharing experience and resources from members throughout its future local chapters.

“Our goals as a union are to better protect and safeguard the people inside the adult entertainment business, which includes all of the adult film industry as well as other industries such as exotic dancers,” says Laura Taylor, Executive Director of the I.E.A.U. “What we are working the hardest on right now is getting testing centers to accept insurance for (adult entertainment) talent, which would not only make it more affordable but also ensure coverage for health issues.” The I.E.A.U. is also working towards unemployment insurance so that talent is financially covered in case of STD infection, which restricts adult film talent performance as per Cal/OSHA regulations in California, the home of the adult film industry in the United States.

The I.E.A.U. has already prepared its constitution and general bylaws, establishing articles concerning standard union practices such as local chapter guidelines, membership dues and collective bargaining negotiation. In addition, recognizing the unique challenges and issues that the adult entertainment industry faces today, the I.E.A.U. has established disciplinary procedures whereby members can be fined, suspended or expelled for acts including “working either directly, indirectly or associating with any person(s) working in the adult entertainment business who is/are under eighteen (18) years of age.”
