Invest Your Tax Refund in Building Your Porn Company?

Get into porn with start my porn company

Chatsworth, California – Financial experts advise that the tax refund many people are receiving should be used to invest in a solid financial future, and to help those thinking about investing their refund in an adult production company, Start My Porn Company releases The Porn Primer designed to help them get into porn on a fast track to success.

The Internal Revenue Service reports that the average tax refund for W-2 employees in 2011 is $2,985.00. A poll posted by USA Today showed that 37% said they would spend all or part of their tax refund on consumer goods. However, experienced financial consultants suggest that 95% of an individual’s tax refund should be invested in future financial health. They suggest using the refund as a capital investment to improve your career, your home or another feature of your financial health, such as starting a new business.

Many people are looking at the adult industry as a hedge investment against the widely prognosticated financial collapse of mainstream corporations in the next five years. As with any new business enterprise, research is in order before taking the leap. The e-book formatted SMPC Porn Primer is filled with insight from successful business professionals in the adult industry. Among the many practical and important topics included in the e-book are sections on leveraging the six most profitable revenue streams for adult content, up-to-date information on government regulations concerning adult content, how to manage professional production shoots and tips to secure content from piracy before it is even released it to the public.

SMPC founder, Linda Roberts said, “There are many industry professionals that have contributed information to the SMPC Porn Primer. Among them are producers Michael Ninn, Otto Bauer, Frank Castle and Nic Andrews, distribution companies All Media Group and Coastline Licensing, information on copyright laws and protecting yourself from piracy comes from Pepper Law Group and Take Down Piracy . . . . I am eternally grateful to the hundreds of great industry minds that have contributed their professional thoughts and experiences to the information that is presented in this book.”

Also included in the SMPC Porn Primer is a section dedicated to sample documents, lists and records keeping forms, such as a model release and the U.S.C. Title 18, Section 2257 Compliance Age Verification Affidavit, designed to allow all new producers to start shooting content while staying within federal records keeping guidelines.

“I am greatly impressed with the amount of industry knowledge and experience that the people involved with Start My Porn Company are willing to share with those new to the adult industry. The credibility of those involved can’t be denied and if I was starting a production company, I would choose to get my information from SMPC,” said Benic Way, of the adult industry crowd funding upstart, Offbeatr.

Dr. Chauntelle Speaks on Adult Performer Health and Safety at Stanford

Chauntelle Tibbals PHD Los Angeles, CaliforniaDr. Chauntelle Anne Tibbals, Ph.D. will present her forthcoming paper Adult Film Performers and Occupational Safety and Health at Stanford Law School in Stanford, California on Wednesday, April 11, 2012.

Tibbals is one of three panelists presenting work at Stanford Law School’s Safety of Sex Workers event. She will present work summarizing data and insights gleaned from twenty-four women and men currently working as adult performers in the Southern California/Los Angeles area. Her findings call attention to disconnects existing between California state law and adult production practices. The event will begin at 12:45 PM. Presentations will be followed by discussant-led Q&A and questions from the audience.

Tibbals hopes to address adult industry workplace and safety issues commonly ignored by policy makers, regulators, and academics during the event.

“Current regulations do not take the inner-workings of the adult industry or the concerns of the workers they’re trying to protect into account.

“Disconnects existing between adult industry producers and performers, regulators, and the wider social world are deep-seated and significant. Reliance on the concept of bloodborne pathogens protection as it is currently defined points to a lack of understanding about the mechanics of professional sex performance,” Tibbals said.

Tibbals is a sociologist, a Visiting Scholar at the University of Southern California (USC), and the driving force behind the 2012 XBIZ Award Nominated site, “Dr. Chauntelle,” as she is commonly known, has spent almost ten years researching the adult industry, working to complicate popular understanding of the adult business, its enterprise, and its socio-cultural significance

She explains, “We need to work to understand the realities of adult production and performers’ concerns. Systematic analysis of the structure and operations of the adult industry in Southern and Northern California is imperative, as are comparisons between the two. This work must be done before further attempts at regulation are made.”

Adult Film Performers and Occupational Safety and Health is forthcoming from Stanford Law and Policy Review (23, 2012). Inquiries about this and Tibbals’ other projects can be directed to
