Quite interesting to see what happens in the porn industry after one of their stars got infected from a woman during vacation in Brazil.

Take your pick of newssources to read more about it.

Ah, well, they'll just outsource that industry too. Cheaper, faster, no worries about healthcare insurance.

Ah, but you forget, the US never made good porn anyways - all blondes and bad cumshots.

Yeah and fake blonds too. And ugly as sin these days. There's some pretty cool porn from the fifties and sixties though. Anyway, most of the stuff is so boring, I tend to fall asleep after 5 minutes.

The important life lesson learned from all of this: go ahead, enjoy your genitalia, just don't try and earn a living from them. 8)

Yup; interesting that it happened too, since the porn industry is so stringent about HIV testing (everyone every three weeks)

That's true. However, in a day and age where your health and safety boils down to a "business expense" for most employers, would you trust *your* employer to look out for the best interests of your, um, "stuff?" I think not. :wink:

And where I live I don't have to. Health care and insurance is not a business expense, since it isn't supplied by employers. Folks have to insure themselves over here. Apart from that the employer can't simply fire workers that are ill for a long period of time, but has to pay its salary for two years and design and implement a program to get the worker fit for work again. So not taking proper care of your employees will actually result in larger business expenses. You can't fire them and you have to pay 'm anyway, so you'd better try to get them fit asap again.
