"Why don't the Gideons leave condoms in the drawer?
Bibles don't save many people anymore.
We took up quarters in the bathroom there were dollars on the floor.
I looked at you. You said to me, "Jay, we're worth more!"

According to Gay Porn Blog's Archive for April 2004:
TITAN Media and Man Play Productions started a huge controversy when they went public with their own prohibition on Performers/Actors whose persona or characters names publicly performed in bareback sex scenes or who had been compromised by high risk environment and activities within the gay adult film industry. Although at the time they limited their restriction to certain criteria but the broadcast of the policy in itself stirred up enough controversy that nothing got settled by the gay adult film industry as a whole.
[EDITOR'S COMMENTARY & NOTES:]
This makes Chi-Chi's tirade at the awards show earlier even more necessary as well as this public service alert even more timely. Maybe soon we will all realize nothing is worth giving up someone's life, even sex or money. It's time for the Adult Industry to police its self before the government does and screws up everything including our liberty to celebrate queer love.

To further update this post:
(MAY 2008) Chi Chi La Rue did an awesome two part interview with Victor Hoff over @ Men of Color regarding her life and two very important topics: safe sex and racism. To view part one and part two of "UnMascara-ed" click the appropriate links.
STATEMENT OF POLICY:
F6 has and will continue to discuss at length safe sex as well as challenge racial bias/prejudice in the gay community as the black hole and eye that it is to the fabric of our own hard fight for equality.
