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, 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.

Platinum Puzzy Talks Porn Insider Secrets with Start My Porn Company

Platinum Puzzy Radio

Jacksonville, Florida – Radio hostess with the mostest, Platinum Puzzy takes to the internet airwaves of Platinum Puzzy Radio [http://platinumpuzzyradio.com] discussing the reality of what it takes to build a successful porn production company with Linda Roberts and Sherry Ziegelmeyer of adult business consultation and management firm, Start My Porn Company [http://startmyporncompany.com].

Ms. Puzzy is no stranger to the travails of launching and operating her own porn company. She started her amateur site seven years ago and had to learn everything on her own, without much guidance along the way. She has succeeded in the amateur adult industry because of her passion, drive and determination. The work has paid off, garnering her nomination for BBW Star of the Year 2011 in the Urban X Awards. However, there is always room to grow for someone of Ms. Puzzy’s intensity and business savvy.

Ms. Puzzy is ready to go further saying, “I had taken a break from doing my radio show for a couple of months, to regroup and think about what I was doing with the show and my production company. This is 2011 and everything about the world, and the adult industry, has changed. I decided it was time for me to start interviewing the people that are behind the camera, to get at the heart of what makes for success in the industry.

“This isn’t just for my personal education; it’s for all the performers out there that are starting to think about stepping up their game. Since this is my new focus, I am delighted that the first guests on the re-energized Platinum Puzzy Radio show are Linda and Sherry from Start My Porn Company.”

While Ms. Puzzy has succeeded in building an empire while many others have failed, Start My Porn Company Founder, Roberts agrees there is little real information available for those that are interested in getting into the adult industry as producers.

“I’ve been producing, directing and performing in adult and mainstream for a little over 15 years, and I had many successes with my productions. However, I was fortunate enough to work with professionals that taught me what I needed to know when I started out. I’ve watched people fail simply because no one with real experience would tell them the truth about what it takes to own and run your own production company. That’s why Sherry and I formed Start My Porn Company. Our goal is to give people that want to be successful in adult an honest and realistic view of the industry, and how to structure their company, to get the best return on their investment of time and money.”

Start My Porn Company’s Ziegelmeyer said, “There is no way not to love Platinum Puzzy. She’s real, honest, a great radio personality, a warm and caring person and an excellent business woman. There’s a place for her in Start My Porn Company and Linda, Miz Puzz and I will be working together on a growing partnership as 2011 progresses.”

Start My Porn Company Suggests Sheen Take the Reins of His Porn Destiny

Start My Porn Company fast-tracks budding porn producers
Chatsworth, CaliforniaStart My Porn Company [http://startmyporncompany.com] offers Charlie Sheen the ability to take total control of his own creative destiny, if he ultimately decides to enter the world of adult production.

Many adult companies are offering the former Two and a Half Men star directing positions at this time, but none of the offers thus far seem to include control of the production or product, beyond putting his name on the box cover and press releases. Start My Porn Company Founder, Linda Roberts says, “Of course there are a lot of porn companies offering Charlie director status. They want exactly what Chuck Lorre, and everyone else he has worked with, has always wanted: To use Charlie’s talent to make money. With Start My Porn Company, Charlie is in charge of everything, and he isn’t at the mercy of someone that just wants to use his name to turn a profit.”

Sherry Ziegelmeyer, owner of porn publicity firm Black and Blue Media and Roberts’ partner in Start My Porn Company, sees Sheen’s recent outbursts as the words of someone who is creatively frustrated. “Between the lines of everything that has been said by Sheen, it all comes down to being tired of other people using his talent for their own gain. By starting his own adult production company, he would have the benefit of owning and controlling everything about the production and what happens to it after it’s edited. Start My Porn Company can help him do that. Many mainstream actors and producers have considered crossing into adult, however they quickly find out they have no clue how adult works. Linda and I did it for Ed Van Halen, and to this day his product is still making money, even if he ultimately decided his interest wasn’t in porn. Ed didn’t know where to start, so we guided him to the people that could get it done while he called the shots on how it was done. There’s no reason why someone with the talent, imagination and intelligence Charlie Sheen possesses, can’t eclipse that and build a profitable porn empire of his own with the same type of help.”

Start My Porn Company offers anyone who has dreamed of starting their own adult company experienced production and business management services to get started on the right track to profit from their porn dreams.

Hollywood, California – Adult industry photographer, Allan K died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 35 Friday, May 21, 2010. The funeral takes place Wednesday, May 26 with a memorial service scheduled for Sunday, May 30.

A familiar face at adult industry events, K captured the best of the lively porn scene during movie shoots and on red carpet lines at various parties and events around Los Angeles.

“I am really sad to hear this news. He was a very nice guy and often times pitched in and rolled up his sleeves and went to work on our sets helping out wherever he thought we needed assistance without being asked. Just a real pleasant man and we will miss him,” stated adult movie director, Will Ryder who last saw K on the set of his production ‘Not Mash XXX’.

A regular with the EMM Agency which specializes in compiling thousands of photographs of favorite porn stars, K worked for ten years among the porn valley elite and enjoyed the late nights and pretty smiles that were a part of the chaotic scene.

Dominic Ace of the EMM Agency added, “This is sad news indeed. Allan had just shot a set on the Bluebird movie ‘Sprint’ and he was looking forward to being on the set of X-Play’s ‘Not Charlie’s Angels XXX’ next week.”

The funeral takes place at 9:30AM on Wednesday, May 26 at Forrest Lawn Cemetery 6300 Forrest Lawn Drive in Los Angeles. A memorial service will take place at 11:00AM on Sunday, May 30 at Iman Studios, 3376 Motor Ave in Los Angeles.

An official quote from the EMM Agency reads as follows; “Everyone here sends their condolences to Allan’s family and friends, Allan was a good friend who’s spirit will sadly be missed, as well as being an integral part of our team from the very beginning, words cannot express our gratitude for everything he has done for us, we will be forever grateful to him.”
