We collected £100 with the idea of doubling it with UKAP funds but after speaking to her she has 
refused our donation with a message stating she doesnt need the money now as she only needed a little bit to start off with which she's got already.

UKAP Awards party & XBizEU 2014

XBizEU 2014:

Its fair to say that XBizEU was a great event with the various seminars and networking. The event being spread over 4 days was a marathon that left a lot of people exhausted, but then how many parties can you handle from Thursday to Saturday night all sponsored with free booze?

This is a superb network event and it was only fitting that since we have moved the parties back to industry only that we were going to reap the rewards of networking with so many people behind the senes we seldom get to rub shoulders with, the billers, the movers and shakers, designers and products we use for social networking and of course, the former YouTube entrepreneur JT's keynote speech, regaling us with how he got into the porn business and revolutionised it with tube sites.

FULL MINUTES AVAILABLE IN MEMBERS AREA

Overview: 16 people in attendance. Figures down on last meeting in November. Gained three potential members. Solid productive meeting. Some failed to appear had difficult getting in and a recording link will be available for private listening on request. Lee Brooker from SWISH grants access for his segment to be made available to the public

Jay from Your Choice wants to head up a campaign against ISP filtering Everyone supportive. He will reach out to other companies to support this with UKAP behind him

Website/ forum: members admit they only use it to access the producers forum. It was addressed that people need to use it more as an extension to their business by promoting their products,since they are in effect paying for it with their subscriptions.Stills from their shoots. Website updates was suggested. ChatGirl player as a source of revenue was welcomed. Generally everyone is ok with the site and dont want a re-skin/ re design

Positive networking
Diversification was suggested by becoming afiliates to sites to drive traffic and bring in residual income. Your Choice selling DVDs via blogs and tweets with afil links etc and generally outsourcing work to people within the business via advertising on the forum Posting work skillsets on UKAP forum so we can provide work to those on our radar ie cameraman/ editor, web designers etc

Does anyone want to audition the new talent? No one picked up on this

Parties & events: A small awards event to work in tandem with Top Of The Babes to market product and promote the girls was agreed. Best DVD of the year best Girls voted by the public and Girl of the year to be worked out and format

Age Verification: feed back from the recent Adult Providers Network stipulated its inevitably coming but greeted as a step in the right direction. Veridu will be at XBiz and granted questions to its service to be avvailable via podcast tothe business to prime questions for their demo at XBiz

Ethical Porn: Nichi Hodgsons pitch for an industry kitemark offering a fair trade stamp on adult film productions was received well and a sign up fee agreed. This is a step in the right direction for the adult business to show responsibility in regulating itself. The support and resources Nichi provides will be an invaluable asset to any company that is serious about being a business and will work closely with producers in shaping terms and conditions of joining.

Its a shame no models turned up to represent and ask relevant questions but maybe thats indicative of the business fracture of paid work and models now working independently. Lee agreed for the recording to be used to raise awareness to SWISH testing services to the adult business at 56 Dean Street and outlines the tests involved with a full screening and the certificates issued with it. Besides this he is pro active in other campaigns to do with the sex industry. Centralised testing was discussed as a possibility but a lot of work and support from the business in general is required to make it work. Producers support this if models decide to show support for it.

ATVOD Q&A with Pete Johnson @ XBiz EU 23/09/13

I was invited to shoot the video of this hotly debated topic to offer clarity to the misinformed people in our business despite an audio recording being available on our previous site that explained the same to pretty much the same outcome.
 
This video however is more comprehensive in that the audience consisted of more people that ATVODs rules and regulations affect, such as Clips4sale and Adultwork users and webshows. Those in attendance ranged from Myles Jackman (@ObscenityLawyer) and Chris Ratcliffe (TVX boss) who was recently removed from the ATVOD panel of  members for reasons explained by Pete Johnson in the video
 
There are many interesting things that were said. This video must be watched by those whose business it may affect whether you are operating in the UK or outside of it as Johnson goes further to explain the meeting they have arranged with tthe banks to block payments to sites that don't comply with ATVOD rules and regulations.
 
Be informed. watch the video.

Sex & Censorship Rally @ XBiz EU 2013 23/09/13

Impressive turnout to the rally against internet censorship organised by Jerry Barnett (@pornpanic) and Ben Yates (formerly of mybeautifultease.com) it was really gracious of XBiz EU to allow the campaign floor time in the ballroom of The Radisson Hotel in Central London to stage this rally. Speakers in attendance with Ben were Karina Currie (former model performer and writer) Diane Duke from the Free Speech Coalition, Edie LaMorte (erotic dancer) and Myles Jackman (@ObscenityLawyer) who offered a colourful case story in injustice with the tiger porn story. Google it. His headlining success was getting Michael Peacock off he extreme porn charge (again, google it)  Everyone provided a testimonial in defence of why David Camerons ISP filtering will not work effectively as a child protection mechanism for the good reason its censorship net will be more encompassing than porn. If its not acted on now it will be hard to fight for when it is too late 
 
This felt bigger than just a defence of the porn industry  even though porn is the forerunner of freedom of speech by virtue of what it is because its all about the information and services indirectly stemming from it that will be lost to the filtering. Edie LaMort explained how the censorship affects her career as a stripper and erotic dancer. Sex services, counselling, education, health and more will be lost
 
There were some interesting questions posed at the end too and calls to work with the government on this. If you want to get involved with the anti censorship campaign then follow @pornpanic and facebook/sexandcensorship for more information This is just the beginning and it needs more supporters. If the filters and censorship affects you, because whether it is direct or indirect, it will, then you should be part of a bigger voice shouting out against it
