Adult Industry Medical - Testing the talent

An excerpt from a Kink.com casting call for their new site Leatherdaddy.com reads:
"* 4 hour shoot at $1200
* Male / male bondage, S&M, and sex
* Heavy leather and rope restraints
* Anal sex (w/ condom), blow jobs, adjusted to comfort level
* Dominant / submissive role play
* We require valid AIM (Adult Industry Medical) tests of all our talent. These test for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and HIV. Talent must re-test every 30 days. [I added the link]."

Read more about what is required/recommended of adult industry performers here (pdf). Or check out the list of available tests, prices etc. The tests can be paid for with paypal, a slip generated and brought to participating clinics, and results handed over by secure internet connection or phone. This is a lot cheaper than Checktonight.com (see comments) which takes a large cut from their testing fees. Read Wired's coverage of the service too.

The general rule for performers seems to be HIV, chlamydia and gonorrhea testing every 30 days, and syphilis, herpes, TB, giardia, vaginosis, etc. every 6 months.

It's unclear how strict testing is enforced and I'm sure that it varies from agency to agency whether it's paid for or not.

This is random - but the Spice channel has their talent wear condoms! And it is still sexy!
