Risky Business: A Look Inside America's Adult Film Industry

Risky Business: A Look Inside America's Adult Film Industry examines the social, psychological, and economic impacts of performing in adult films. What makes people decide to become adult entertainers, how do they go about entering the business, what are their experiences in the business, and how do they deal with career options, finances, and relationships once they exit the business? The documentary also examines proposed regulations that would address current industry issues, including workplace health and safety, such as mandatory STD testing and condom use, and job discrimination once performers decide to leave the industry and pursue conventional employment.

The documentary is about misperceptions of people in the porn business. It takes a no holds barred look (not graphic) at what the producers, directors, performers go through during and after their career in the adult film business. It examines the social stigma, how doing an adult film keeps you out of making regular movies and out of regular jobs (in 2013, a LA school teacher was fired for doing porn 10 years earlier). In many cases performers quit porn then can't find someone to date and fall in love with. The question is, why is sex in a film so bad? Yet no one minds when it (sex) happens to them. The film takes a great responsibility in discussing STDs, AIDS, safe-sex, the importance of being of age to work in or watch adult films. I love the movie because it presents a taboo topic in a way that appeals to all audiences. As one of the interview subjects in the movie says "why are we all so afraid of the one thing (sex), that is simply part of our nature. It's who we are." Grade: A-
