Adult entertainment requires models to work with multiple partners. It can add to the fun, but it also increases the risk of transmitting an STI or worse, HIV. It’s something that all models working in the professional adult entertainment industry take very seriously.
“I choose to only work with companies that require the use protection during sex!” Jake Austin proudly stated.
Jake is a 23 year-old gay adult entertainer who has been working in the industry for just about a year.
“You are taking a risk having sex with multiple people, Jake explained. “Wearing a condom is one way to lessen the risk and help keep you safe and healthy.”
Knowing the risks and how to prevent them is important. If you have questions about STI’s and HIV, talk to your health professional. Get information from a trusted source. Don’t rely on friends or strangers to give your correct and accurate information.
If you know someone who is not practicing safe sex, give them a gentle reminder on the potential dangers they are putting themselves in.
Having a personal policy to practice safe sex all the time is key. Use it as your guide.
“It’s your choice, your life,” Jake said, referring to his own personal policy. “You’re putting yourself at a greater risk. Just be safe get tested and stay healthy. Whatever it is you choose, I am not here to judge.”
