Porn Stars and Politics Come Together

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One San Francisco labor union is mixing porn stars and politics for a hard-fought goal.

This Thursday (June 7), the Erotic Service Providers Union (ESPU) is hosting the Courtesan Carnaval, a party to support the rights of all sex workers – from exotic dancers and porn stars to phone sex operators and even web-cam video vixens.

The feisty festivities include a burlesque act called The Damnettes, but the real climax is the silent auction, which will raise money to provide porn pros with labor skills training, including classes on leadership, political organization, and wage negotiation.

And it’s not all lap dances and dirty talk, sometimes they have to lay down – the law, that is.

Maxine Doogan, the founder of the ESPU, explains, “This party is about human rights. We’re providing an opportunity for all erotic service workers to feel supported.”
