The Domino Foundation is working on a number of projects, all of which use unique methods in an attempt to educate those who are unable to access the information or resources that are available to teach about sexual health.
Community Support Handbook
We are writing a practical and comprehensive handbook that supports adult entertainers and sex workers. The guide is a collaboration between health professionals, welfare specialists, as well as those in the sex industry themselves. The handbook aims to keep people informed about safe practices, sexual health progress and legal aid resources, as well as to provide tools that may help them in day-to-day life. This handbook is evolving into community e-learning.
We have talks that can be presented to groups of all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, ages, serostatuses and so on. We can provide contemporary advice and information on a diverse range of topics, from things that everybody should know, and things that most people don't. This includes PrEP, the U=U campaign and general sexual health wellbeing. Talks can be followed up with a Q&A session, with our professionals on hand to provide concise yet detailed information.
The Porn Professionals for Safety against Discrimination pledge is a piece of work for bridging conversations about practices in the global adult film industry and conversations with current sexual health information. Multiple international HIV charities support the action of Porn professionals who have taken the pledge. Standing by the pledge indicates they understand and respect that Undetectable equals Untransmittable U=U along with other modern pieces of sexual health information.
Work Within the Adult Industry
Making the industry a safer place with more recourses to justice and support is vital. To do this interconnectivity work began to help those in the industry discover resources available for them. The building of these resources and training is a long piece of work for equipping a community for self organising horizontally, working together and protecting Worker Rights, without which the industry will never be free from traditional stigmas.
As a collaboration between over 30 adult entertainers and sexual health experts, we produced our own porn scene. Shared across platforms including porn sites, Facebook and YouTube, the film had multiple edits with varying degrees of explicitness. The project contains information about PrEP, which was our primary focus, but also topics including coming out, HIV, stigma, U=U and other sexual health information.
The Good Porn Project
Leading on from Porn4PrEP we have opened up to the world and taking suggestions for our next film project, we are using the knowledge of our followers to provide us with suggestions of what to film next, once we have 5 plots we are happy with we will create scripts, film and edit together a further 5 scenes, these films will be available online in the same way Porn4PrEP was, but will also be published onto a DVD and available in even more places.
