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.

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.
