IEAU: Unionizing Adult Entertainment

Until very recently adult entertainment wasn’t considered a unionized industry. In fact, before the IEAU, otherwise known as the International Entertainment Adult Union, the next best thing was APAC, which has been under continued scrutiny and stress. While the concept of protecting performers is a noble one, it appears the IEAU has gone about it in the wrong way.

Enter IEAU; Possible Performer Protection

According to Aurora Snow, from The Daily Beast, there has been some push back toward the union’s creation, but not because of what it stands for, but how it’s been brought to fruition,

No one seems to have an issue with a performers’ union but many are concerned with its organizational aspects. One way to interest performers is to gain their respect. Offer transparency. Be honest, even when you make a mistake.

Aurora Snow c/o The Daily Beast

According to Snow, the initial formation of the union resulted in individuals being nominated and approved before accepting their nomination. Further, apparently only roughly sixty ballots were cast in all. Even those in attendance found issue with its origination,

No offense to the people running this union, but most of them have been out of the industry for so long. We’ve had such an influx of new performers in the last five years that they aren’t going to know who these people are.

The concept of a union is promising, however, as it could lead to better education and protection for performers. Safety in the adult entertainment industry has been a long and controversial topic, but things have been shifting toward a safer environment. According to Snow, a union could lead to even better long-term security for performers,

dult entertainers don’t spend a lot of time thinking about 401(k) plans, social security, or life after porn—not until they actually leave the business. This long-term financial thinking and planning is where a credible union could make a huge difference

Aurora Snow c/o The Daily Beast

The people behind the IEAU clearly agree, and have put forth numerous goals, including financial education, health insurance, and even OSHA compliance. If successful, this could mean a safer, more comfortable environment for those who wish to transform their jobs in adult entertainment into full-fledged careers.

Unfortunately, the way the IEAU has gone about their introduction into Porn Valley, have put plenty on edge. As written on Mike South’s website, the potential for petitioning the IEAU for re-elections is certainly viable. As Snow said, admitting mistakes could go a long way to breaching the divide in regard to opposition toward a union.

Others seem to be in favor of the union, even as it stands. If the IEAU makes good on their goals and promises, this could be a significant chapter in the world of adult entertainment. With transparency, this would provide performers and production companies alike the opportunity to standardize the industry and produce reliable and forward-thinking content.
