Talent Testing Service announced the following on its official website today:
On September 1st, 2013 Talent Testing Service, Inc. (TTS) will be introduce a new comprehensive testing protocol called the “Gold Standard Panel” (GSP). This GSP will replace both the Basic and Full Panels currently offered by consolidating the latest testing methodologies into one comprehensive product and furthermore strengthen Primary and Secondary testing algorithms for the detection of STD’s in the adult industry.
The GSP will be comprised of the following EIGHT tests:
1. HIV-1 NAT
6. Trichomonas Vaginalis AND
7. Two Syphilis tests:
o TREP-SURE EIA – Treponema pallidum Antibody, IgG by ELISA
Please note that all molecular tests are performed based on single test / single talent testing protocols. Pooling of material is not a standard practice at TTS.
Improved Test Results Delivery Times
TTS will also be providing its clients test results TWICE a day: at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PST and 6:00pm EST/3:00pm PST, Monday through Friday. If you test at our LA office on Monday by 5:00pm PST, your results will be ready by 10:00am PST the next day.
“These changes come after consultations with Talents, Agents and Production companies throughout the industry.” said Sixto Pacheco, President & CEO of TTS. “TTS prides itself at being at the forefront of industry leading testing protocols. The GSP and additional results availability times are in line with our commitment to continuously improve the available safeguards directed at the health of the Talent and the industry as a whole” Pacheco continued.
Clearance Issues on FSC/APHSS/PASS System
TTS believes there is a testing loophole in the FSC/APHSS/PASS Clearance database. “As we have previously stated to FSC/APHSS/PASS, we have strongly recommended that the facility issuing a Non-Clearance to a talent into system must also be responsible for issuing the follow up clearance.” Pacheco said. “At this time, some talents that are not cleared by TTS, due to more rigorous testing protocols in place, shop around for a less stringent panel in order to obtain a follow-up clearance.” Pacheco continued. “This simple change in policy will have an enormous positive impact on the clearance system”.
The Free Speech Coalition issued the following statement to Adult Video News in response:
CANOGA PARK—The Talent Testing Service press release dated August 30, 2013 appears to be an attempt by Talent Testing Services to gain financial advantage over his competitors by providing misleading information. This is most disappointing. The current test panel was created and approved by the PASS Medical Advisory council which includes Dr. Darcy and Dr. Smith–doctors associated with and/or recommended by TTS itself. Moreover, the PASS panel is no different than Talent Testing’s “GSP” with the exception that the PASS panel’s TrepSure test cascades to the RPR test. This means, if there is a positive TrepSure, an RPR will be run to determine if the TrepSure is a false positive. Consequently, Talent Testing’s panel provides no additional protection for the performer.
As far as the concern expressed in the press release that performers “shopping around” might evade the protections offered by PASS, we did develop a policy when TTS offered Hepatitis testing prior to it being added to the test panel. If a testing facility has a medical issue with a performer with which they were concerned, the doctor associated with that facility would contact PASS and we would contact the physicians from the other testing facilities and ask them to red-flag that performer until he or she had resolved the issue with the doctor from the original facility. TTS was made aware of this policy as was its doctor.
The real danger here is Talent Testing’s attempt to undermine the industry’s Performer Availability Screening Services. It is time–once and for all–for Talent Testing to decide if it wants to be part of the program or not. If it does, then the appropriate means to determine what is medically necessary, and ultimately what is best for performer safety, should be determined by the doctors and not used as a marketing tool for the benefit of one testing facility over another.

VENICE, CA – Sovereign Syre has several hot shoots in the works, but there may be none she is looking forward to more than this week’s on-camera reunion with Bailey Blue.
The scene will be directed by Aiden Riley for the Dirty Panties series out of Evil Angel/Belladonna Entertainment and will be the second time Sovereign and Bailey have worked together.
“I loved working with Bailey so much on her showcase for Manuel Ferrara that when Aiden asked who I might like to work with she was the first person who came to mind,” Sovereign said. “She has a smoldering sexuality that just gets to me. I would do just about anything with her. She really ignites my passion as a performer.”
That passionate sizzler should be out this fall for fans to enjoy. Another shoot she has coming up if for Dana Vespoli’s Lesbian Pussy Worship. Dana and Sovereign work together frequently and seem to bring out the best in each other.
While Sovereign wrapped up her Girls in Heat, which she directed, earlier this summer, she is getting back behind the camera this weekend to shoot a special bonus scene with a performer who is coming out of hiatus. Asked the name of the performer, Sovereign said, “I can’t tell you that right now.” Questioned further, she would not divulge, adding only, “this is someone who people are going to be very excited to see back in front of the camera. I’ll have more on it next week.”
Coming out next week is Dani Loves Girls, a Dani Daniels showcase out of Sweetheart Video. “I think this movie contains one of my best scenes of all time,” Sovereign says. “Dani and I bring everything out of each other. We first worked together two years ago, and as we’ve matured as performers our scenes have gotten stronger and stronger. In this scene we really went all out with each other, it’s rare to have such a free and easy connection with another performer. Fans of either of us shouldn’t miss this.”
Vote for Sovereign in the NightMoves Awards. She up for Best All Girl Release twice: Girl Crush 3 (Club 59/Elegant Angel) with Dani Daniels, and Lesbian Masseuse 2 (Girl Candy Films), with Asa Akira. Vote at www.nightmoves-online.com/voting/index.php?sid=82189.
Sovereign and Asa are nominated for Porn’s Perfect Screen Couple in the 2013 Sex Awards show, which will be held in October.
It was the perfect blend of gorgeous women and sexy lingerie when legendary gentlemen’s club Rick’s Cabaret New York hosted a fashion show featuring the work of designer Rene’ Rofe’. The lovely Rick’s Cabaret Girls tantalized the crowd as they modeled the designer’s eye-catching apparel. For those of you who couldn’t be there, here’s a link to a video of the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_z75vzJDyQ.
“Rene’ Rofe’ lingerie is so sexy,” cooed Rick’s Cabaret Girl Yasmin. “I love the way it feels on my body. And I love the way it feels taking it off.”
“The show was so hot,” purred Rick’s Cabaret Girl Valentina. “A few days later a famous baseball player who was there — I can’t tell you which one because we respect everyone’s privacy — gave me a gift of a lace teddy from the Rene’ Rofe’ catalog. Isn’t that sweet?”
Rick’s Cabaret is well known for its beautiful exotic dancers, luxurious setting, gourmet restaurant and warm hospitality. It is the club of choice for an upscale clientele including Wall Street bankers and brokers, numerous celebrities, and pro athletes from all the major sports.

VENICE, CA – When Willy Milano Prieto sat down to review Dark Perversions 2 for Coolest Porn Reviews, he had a few questions. He knew it wasn’t going to be as hardcore as the megahit Get My Belt, and his wife “excited about this movie because after reading 50 Shades of Grey,” but what to expect?
A lot, it turns out!
“This is a movie that satisfies your needs for hardcore sex and soft BDSM, especially Bonnie Rotten’s sex scene,” he writes. “I loved the threesome, it was sizzling hot with lot of interaction between the girls, and Alena (Croft) takes a lot of attention from (Ryan and Kelly) Madisons. I highly recommend you to check out this movie if you’re into hot submissive girls.”
Dark Perversions 2 and Anal Youth (from their Teenfidelity imprint) are the Madison’s hot new releases this month, with the release of Naturals (Pornfidelity) due the first week of September. They are also riding high on the success of Get My Belt, which has been one of the most-acclaimed titles of the year. It is nominated for Adult Movie of the Year, and the pairing of Chanel Preston and Ryan Madison is nominated for Hottest Sex Scene in the 2013 Sex Awards, which will take place in October.
