About

Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS) is a service administered by the Free Speech Coalition (FSC), in order to provide adult industry producers and performers with a reliable protocol and database for STI testing.

Once you sign up for APHSS:

PERFORMERS can view information on recommended testing facilities located in the Los Angeles area, and nationwide. Personal medical information will be accessible to performers through the testing facilities they choose, while availability information remains updated and secure on the database.

PRODUCERS can verify performer’s availability.

AGENTS also can view availability for their clients, performers.

TESTING FACILITIES affiliated with APHSS will submit data promptly, within a guaranteed amount of time. Data will be updated daily in the APHSS database.

The APHSS Advisory Committee will be comprised of appointed members, including five performers, two producers, a legal consultant, and a medical consultant, that will work with an APHSS coordinator to oversee and set policy for the APHSS program. The Committee will work closely with talent agency organization LATATA, as well as members from the groups they represent, in order to provide insight and feedback on the concerns of APHSS users and other industry members.

In phase two of APHSS development, the program will include health & safety education options for performers, as well as health & safety resources for content producers and agents.
