SWOP-LA @ ADULTCON…can u say dental..DAAAAAMMM?

the_adultcon_logo.jpgpneadultcongroupshot.jpgMariko Passion, Courtney, volunteer Jamez and the kind folks at Extenz and Explosion male herbal enhancement products let us use their stage and mic to do some safe sex work demos with dental dams and flavored condoms. The crowd loved it. Adultcon was the entire weekend of 9/22-24 and it was an exhaustive outreach effort selling t-shirts, performing demos and shouting at people to make donations. It was a good outreach effort, truly a non profit effort as the booth was not donated to us, but at least we did not LOSE any money. We garnered support from the hetero porn watchers, AND most importantly garnered support form a few key PORN STARS who have tried or currently do try their hands at being whores/escorts themselves. They were not only supportive, but willing to do content trades to do safe sex work porn with me/us in the future!!

SWOP-LA has made an important PARTNERSHIP with WOMEN ALIVE, an HIV/AIDS non profit that is the reason that we have the safe sex tools to give away to other sex workers and clients at events like adultcon. Alma, from Women Alive was a member of SWOP-LAS VEGAS last year and has since moved to LA and already helped SWOP-LA in amazing ways. We are returning to Venice Beach to do a safer sex work outreach demo TOMORROW, 9/29/07. come find the action if you live nearby!

  1. Thank you so much for posting this, Mariko I find your sex possitive attitude to be so empowering and I love your creative use of dental damns (For anybody who is wondering what I’m refering to, please see the video that Mariko included above.)

  2. this is great, good work ladies!

  3. Yay, Mariko! If you want to embed videos right in the blog, let me know — we can do that.

  4. I think you got the URL wrong for Women Alive – I’m pretty sure you meant the HIV/AIDS group at women-alive.org rather than the evangelical women’s group at womenalive.org. (When I first saw the link, I thought you managed to make an alliance across a pretty big cultural divide!)

  5. yay alma! (and she works at the HIV/AIDS outreach org, not the evangelical group). (c: vegas connections, baby, yeah!

  6. Please don’t tell me those are real tattoos…Gotta be kiddin me…
