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, PVVOnline.com. “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 cat_606@usc.edu.
