Welcome to the International Entertainment Adult Union.
We are the only Department of Labor approved Parent Union
representing the adult industry in the U.S.
Resource List Available
We’ve published a resource list of services and support for workers involved in adult and sex industries (North America).
Unfortunately, it’s a little skimpy and not all areas are covered. We will add to it and revise as needed.
Please email revisions, additions or comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Financial Attacks on Legal Sex Workers Continue
First Congress passed and President Trump signed the FOSTA and SESTA acts which were so poorly written that websites like Craigslist had to shut down their entire personals section (which included listings like people looking for jogging partners).
Then liberal Elizabeth Warren and conservative Marco Rubio co-sponsored a bill that would force banks to shut down both legal and illegal sex worker accounts.
The onslaught continues as we’ve recently discovered Patreon (a web platform that allows creators to collect subscriptions for the work) is closing the accounts of many legal sex workers including cam models, other erotic models and independent adult film studios.
All this is supposedly being done to combat sex trafficking. The International Entertainment Adult Union stands against all forms of non-consensual sex. Yet we recognize that many people engaged in legal sex work are being endangered and impoverished by these actions. The only real winners here will be the hypocritical politicians who are too lazy to actually solve problems and their prudish donors.
Sex workers who are impacted by these draconian measures must organize, stand up and demand that the attacks against them stop!
All Adult Entertainers! Join with your brothers and sisters and be a part of changing history!
Help us, Help you!
The IEAU stance on the FOSTA bill
The International Entertainment Adult Union organizes workers in entertainment industries where one must be 18 or older to participate. Our union supports healthy, non-coerced sex between consenting adults and the audiences that appreciate them. Our members engage in legal activity and we are firmly against sex trafficking, child molestation and other forms of forced sex.
Congress recently passed FOSTA; HR 1865 in an attempt to address sex trafficking. A good target but with bad aim.
This will have unintended consequences that impact legitimate websites and legal adult performers. A better way to address this issue would be to encourage unionization of the adult-performer industry. We need a union card check law, the enforcement of current labor laws and an end to attacks on labor. Unions do not allow their members to be victims.
