While Charlie Sheen has admitted to spending over $10 million dollars trying to conceal from the public, and his playmates within the sex industry, that he was HIV positive. What's one way he's been doing this? He's admitted to paying blackmail money to silence some of his victims who were HIV positive. Women who were employed in the sex industry and were NOT "sex trafficking victims". http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/18/business/charlie-sheen-hiv-positive.html
Now what's another way? How about trying to discredit an organization that's been knocking on doors saying that they're seeing an epidemic rise in the numbers of their members with HIV/AIDS such as Sex Workers Anonymous?
How about getting a production company "Live Nation",
who is also the production company for another confessed pimp, Snoop Dogg, http://www.livenation.com/artists/41987/snoop-dogg and have their lobbyist, build a "counter" group that will further pull sex workers away from Sex Workers Anonymous? https://www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Lobbyist/reports/LobbyistDetail.cfm?lobbyist=111&Session=78
But how do you build a bond with these sex workers who notoriously don't trust "outsiders"? Why free coffee, cupcakes, make-overs, dental work, cash aid all WITHOUT having the condition placed upon these freebies of a little thing like them having to be in the exit process. I mean what active stripper/escort in Vegas wouldn't love the idea of such freebies with no strings? http://www.thecupcakegirls.org/#!avn/c1jod
Welcome to the Cupcake Girls. Why they'll even hold fund raisers for you while you're still hooking to pay for your lawyers and your rent like they did Kamylla AND make sure you out there in the public eye saw them do this. http://www.thecupcakegirls.org/#!Call-to-Action-Help-with-Kamyllas-Legal-Fund/cmbz/5567bd7d0cf23d0164c9c81b Who wouldn't love these "Cupcake Girls" over SWA whose members who have to work at staying off booze and drugs as well as get a non-sex work job in order to receive support from them right?
And there goes the warnings to them about Charlie and HIV in the process.
But others are still listening to SWA because they know the group is made up of REAL ex-sex workers. Especially the newbies in Los Angeles who aren't in Vegas nor go to the AVN to benefit from the "hospitality suite" the Cupcake Girls bought to further gain their "in" into sex workers. They don't do anything to help sex workers EXIT the industry. They don't do anything to get them HIV testing or education. I've spoken to more than one stripper who has witnessed them sweeping into the club with cupcakes and make-overs and they each reported NOT ONE WORD about HIV, testing, condoms, vaccines, prevention, etc. So what do they want? To "preach the gospel"? (they're all church ladies). No - the sex workers report not one word about church. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vanessa-pinto/hollie-stevens-hospitality-suite_b_2372787.html
(A side note - I have asked the AVN promoters to sponsor a booth where we issue information on HIV and things like the vaccine and they've refused. They told me they "don't donate" and were also concerned that SWA might be viewed as "being against the industry" even though they personally acknowledged they know we are not. Meaning they wouldn't put in any booth that wasn't "pro" sex work and that didn't PAY for the space.)
I'm sorry but I come from the world of reality where nobody does anything without a motive or a payoff of some kind. If it's not reaching out to help sex workers quit like we do, or warn them about HIV like we do, and if they're not "preaching the gospel" then what is it?
If anything they KEEP women in the sex industry. They preach "unconditional support" of working girls. However, I witnessed them going to the legislature to get a law written about expunging prostitution records (working girls really love that idea) WITHOUT attending SWA meetings for a year or longer as we've been doing to help sex workers expunge their records. In many states, we have SWA members are expunging their records by showing an involvement in our program. These are women who CAN'T prove "sex trafficking" in order to expunge their records like the law that the CG got passed. I mean honestly if you could "prove trafficking" - wouldn't you then have done so at the trial?
So what was the point of them getting this law passed? Their claim was that "sex workers were unable to get legit jobs with their prostitution records" which isn't true. Now what is true is you can't get A PROSTITUTION LICENSE TO WORK IN A LEGAL BROTHEL with a past conviction. (If convicted of prostitution in Nevada, or some other states, you become a "sexual offender" meaning you can't get a license to work at a legal brothel. Meaning a prostitution conviction DOES NOT prevent you from finding work outside the sex industry in Nevada - but it DOES stop you from working a legal brothel. http://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/resources/prostitution-pimping-and-pandering-laws-nevada.htm)
I have been in Nevada since 1996 getting men and women jobs outside of sex work just fine and have a long list of casinos, and other large reputable companies who love hiring ex-sex workers for jobs in marketing, public relations, promotions, sales, cocktail waitress, dealing, management, etc. https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/78th2015/Minutes/Senate/JUD/Final/1207.pdf These casinos, and employers don't shout it from the rooftops - but there is a list of them who gladly welcome hiring ex-prostitutes, strippers, porn performers, etc. If you'd like to see this list - just ask me. When I offered the list to the Cupcake Girls they blocked my emails in response and asked me to stop calling them.
Now if their interest was in finding sex workers work outside the sex industry - then why would they refuse to take the list from me of these companies who do hire those with records? Better yet - why are they only focusing on FEMALE sex workers - while ignoring men and transgenders? I also asked some of the local male and gay strip clubs who reported the CG never came near them. So if they're "having trouble finding work for strippers because of their records" while refusing to get help from SWA to get these women jobs, and then relying upon some law which is impossible to even make use of (again you'd have to hire an attorney, then you've have to "prove trafficking" which again if you could do so you would have done so - so this is a completely useless grand standing law which does nothing to get sex workers into other jobs immediately and without an investment of money first but boy did it get them a lot of publicity) and it does NOTHING to help sex workers find work outside the industry. So CLEARLY their group isn't about helping sex workers LEAVE the industry - so again what is their point?
If this was to help conceal Charlie's secret within the sex industry itself (if an escort or porn star gets HIV and can trace it to Charlie - she's going to do what? She's going to stop working in the sex industry and probably call us. Then to protect her anonymity WE'RE going to put out the word within the sex industry to "stay away from Charlie". So how do you stop that from spreading and then no one wants to play with Charlie and no one goes to the press? Now you're following my logic here of what's happening.) then the Cucpcake Girls makes more sense.
Now you also need to stop word from getting to the "rookies" or those new to sex work. You don't want the "rookie" escorts and porn stars to believe what this organization is saying to sex workers about the epidemic, and the warnings about Charlie. You also want them to NOT believe us. So what do you do? You hire a paid "shill" who is vocal as an active sex worker to try and discredit the group.
Welcome to the "madam pack" as I call them now. Which includes Norma Jean Almodavor, a convicted pimp. Maxine Doogan, a convicted pimp. Bella Robinson who has worked as a prostitute and madam by her own admission and has also been arrested in the past.
Last but not least we have Domina Elle who is living under the name of a dead woman, Avaarm Shekinah, a woman who was a survivor of the Branch Davidian cult. We don't know her criminal background because she's not living under her own name and everything she owns is registered to the dead woman who she obtained an ID from based on a voter registration we found with a younger birthdate on it. http://www.coloradovoters.info/by_number/6000/67888_shekinah_koresh_avraam.html
Oh but Domina Elle is a sex work advocate right? Really? Putting aside she did nothing to help Kamylla exit the sex industry which she's repeatedly said in interviews was her goal, she has also stalked and terrorized sex workers - including Mistress Bardot Wolf and Mistress Trinity. Two women who have reported publicly they live in fear of her. Mistress Trinity reports it's "well known that she's got "friends" at the Denver police and courts in a recorded phone call she made to us that Domina Elle published online without our consent nor Mistress Trinity's. She obtained the recording by hacking into my computer and then published the recording on www.sexworkersanonymous.org to try and discredit and attack us - warning all sex workers after she published the tape "don't trust them".
Now where do snitches and informants come from? They come from people who have arrested! Then after they get arrested they either get off totally, or they get a reduced sentence in order for setting up other people or playing undercover games within the criminal world. Now do you really think that if Charlie's spent "over $10 million dollars to try and conceal his secret" for years now that hiring someone within the sex industry to try and get active sex workers not to listen to our warnings about him and HIV is beyond the realm of possibility?
Then you don't know the sex industry very well because that's how it works. Wealthy men have been trying to conceal their past doings any way they can for a long long time. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/crime/gay-porn-star-extortion-case-897653
What's another reason we're being stalked, smeared, threatened and attacked? Could it be the "Music" case out of Pasadena? http://sanitytodayonline.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-sound-of-music-and-pasadena.html An Asian women came to us for help in 2013 reporting that when she told her traffickers she wanted to quit prostituting, and other crimes, for this ring, she was drug out of her home by two Pasadena cops, slapped with two fake prostitution charges signed by a Pasadena judge, and then further threatened by a Pasadena attorney. When we stepped in to help her - our attorney was threatened by the police and this attorney. When I tried to show her they had lied to her about clearing these records - I was then threatened by this attorney and a man identifying himself as a Pasadena officer. Yes I recorded and documented all these threats.
What's distressing also about this operation is that the women in this trafficking ring aren't seeing doctors who would report any findings to the CDC. They're seeing a Mandarin speaking doctor (not Planned Parenthood by the way) for their reproductive needs. I also know one of her "regulars" who has been trying to get her out from under this ring. An interview with him can be found - http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2015/07/helping-someone-to-leave-sex-work-who.html
The woman, and this man, report they are not using condoms and she's not on an HIV vaccine. Nor are the other women in this ring. The women are having up to 10-15 contacts a day without condoms, without testing, and without being on a vaccine. http://sinosphere.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/29/trial-of-chinese-hotelier-features-accusations-of-prostitution/ In talking to the woman, I learned that they're prostituting the younger men and women in China. They prefer them "younger" over there. So young this woman started at 8 years old by her mother forcing her to do these things, along with her sister and brother.
Then when they hit about 40 years old - they're bringing them over here to the states on the promise they are giving them "other" jobs in restaurants, nail salons, or even real estate jobs. http://fox59.com/2015/08/10/massage-parlor-investigation-leads-to-prostitution-arrest/ Look at the photo of this woman in her 40's or so. If you google more photos of massage parlor arrests - you'll find almost all the women are in their 40's and 50's.
When they get their papers in order to come to work at these "legit" jobs they're then told they have to pay off their "contract" through prostitution. They're promised if they "behave" their children will receive an all expenses paid education at either USC or UCLA. What could be more prestigious? What woman who feels she's "just a whore" wouldn't feel the sacrifice is worth it to see her children receive a valuable education and a "new start"? Only in reality these kids are not only being groomed to enter sex work, to recruit others into sex work, but also to be spies for China. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/us-indicts-6-chinese-on-charges-of-stealing-trade-secrets/2015/05/19/f11fd35e-fdd8-11e4-805c-c3f407e5a9e9_story.html
When their children back in China are in their teens, they're being brought over here to go to school in the Arcadia, Pasadena area where they can be around their own culture and family - one that shuns Westerners and outsiders. The language barrier makes that easy. To make room for them, there was a whole bunch of low income people who were pushed out of Pasadena using intimidation starting about 2011-2012. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAWiJq2J5GU There are videos online about how the police were chasing people out of the area using fear and illegal tactics. Notice these videos show this happening about 3 to 4 years ago - which is also AFTER Charlie Sheen says he started covering up his HIV status. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4KP0xp7-30 Also notice none of the people being thrown out illegally are Chinese.
To show the Pasadena police can be "bought" - just read about how they helped set up PETA at this time frame. http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/general-news/20150716/peta-files-lawsuit-against-pasadena-police-department-over-seaworld-spy
They further chased out of the area a lot of businesses owned by Americans by shutting down the streets so they lost so much income they had no choice but to shut down and move. http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/government-and-politics/20130427/city-of-thorns-despite-reforms-pasadena-police-still-face-controversy and http://thirtymilesofcorruption.com/tag/siobhan-foster/ I remember whole businesses having to fold up shop because the streets were literally so tore up in front of their shops they all had to shut down and move. Each one was not an Asian owned business by the way.
Even to the point of letting minorities who are African American and Hispanic, not Chinese, know they are in mortal danger in Pasadena from the police. http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/general-news/20140702/tape-pasadena-homicide-detective-bragged-about-framing-suspects-lying-to-get-conviction As a brainwashing expert, let me tell you what this news clip sends to the mind of a person who is African American - http://www.scpr.org/news/2014/06/16/44754/pasadena-pays-1-million-to-parents-of-kendrec-mcda/ Get the fuck out of Pasadena.
Then they kept moving in the kids of these women to "prepare them for college". The women were then moved from massage parlor to massage parlor across the USA every few weeks or months depending. This was to make sure they didn't make any lasting ties with anyone outside of this trafficking ring and Asian community.
All the while the mothers are "away at work", the children are being groomed to enter into the sex industry. They are the ones going into the colleges recruiting the others kids and Los Angeles is the epicenter because that's where the porn industry is centered who THRIVES on fresh meat being delivered continually. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/19/strip-club-ad-berkeley_n_4818356.html
Only guess what, some of these teens are HIV positive also. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/01/world/asia/china-aids-sexual-transmission.html?rref=collection%2Fcolumn%2FSinosphere&action=click&contentCollection=Asia%20Pacific&module=Collection®ion=Marginalia&src=me&pgtype=article And from what I'm hearing - they aren't being required to release information on their HIV status before entering this country. Neither are their mothers. By the way, I used to regularly speak at UCLA. I have been trying for two years now to speak on their radio station, their newspaper, to their student groups, and to their psychology, social work, criminal justice and human sexuality professors and out of each professor, group, etc. I've only found ONE professor who let me speak to his students. When I was done I was chased after by a young woman who reported to me that all the "womens" groups are promoting sex work and she's feeling the "odd duck" for NOT entering into porn or stripping to pay for her college. I asked how she was paying for a UCLA degree and she told me her father is a truck driver and he's paying for her to get her degree. Love this girl!
The National Trafficking Hotline requires a victim call "personally for help". If you look at any of the studies, or speak to people in the field, you will hear over and over again that people who are sex trafficking victims are not "identifying" as such. That's because they don't think they're victims. It's called "denial". Frankly, its' why I have NEVER led our outreach campaigns with the words of "trafficking" or "victim" but instead WHY I lead our outreach with words like "prostitute" or "sex worker". I do that because THAT'S HOW THEY IDENTIFY THEMSELVES.
Why? In 1995, I was certified by the FBI as an "expert witness" in the subject of "how pimps brainwash and groom their victims into thinking they're giving consent when in fact they're not" for a trial going on in Hawaii. The pimp was a real "romeo pimp" who had been trafficking women all over the USA. The women all insisted he was not "forcing them" but they were acting "off their own free will". The DA showed me videotapes made by him which I was able to then break down step by step how he was accomplishing the process of making these women think they were "doing what they wanted to do" for him without outside brainwashing or coercion. The pimp's attorney took one look at my report and they took a plea bargain. My point being I know how the grooming and brainwashing process works. I was a victim of it myself.
One of the ways I was brainwashed was being surrounded by wealth. I was being driven in Rolls Royces, living in a house "south of the boulevard" with a fantastic view of Los Angeles, wearing designer clothing, expensive jewelry, and walking around with a lot of cash on me. I mean where was I going to go with it knowing if I disappeared that my mother and grandmother would be blown up? Come on - is that "free will"?
Also, we would drive by these girls standing on a street corner in miniskirts at 2:00 in the morning freezing their asses off and LAUGH at how we "weren't like them". Welcome to the river DENIAL.
When I started being shut out of consulting on media being created around this subject was about 2007. I've seen the media that's been created without my input. So too do the real victims out there. These teens from China are being bombarded with messages on TV and fund raisers and community groups that "sex trafficking" is something that appears to be street prostitution.
Watch the show "8 Minutes" that was staged and what do you see? You see Kathryn Griffin-Townsend who is African American talking like a street prostitute. http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2013/08/15/former-prostitute-program Watch the "Dreamcatchers" documentary with Brenda Myers-Powell and what do you see? African-American street prostitution. htp://thedreamcatcherfoundation.org/staff/brenda-myers-powell/ Watch Jada Pinkett-Smith's CNN Freedom project in Atlanta, Georgia and what do you see? African-American street prostitution. Look at the "No Such Thing" campaign and what do you see? Malika Saar who is African American with corn rows in her hair holding up an African-American girl as her poster child "victim" and speaking about street prostitution. Withelma Ortiz Pettigrew who is being paraded around by Glamour Magazine, Time Magazine, CNN, Cosmopolitan Magazine and the Ricky Martin Foundation? Hispanic street prostitution. What pimps do you see being arrested for trafficking on the news? Blacks and Hispanics. https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/human-trafficking
Anything but Asian or white women.
You bombard someone over and over and over again with the concept of "sex trafficking" being African American and Hispanic and street walkers and guess what a young girl or boy from China is going to think?
Who created shows like these? Relativity Media's done a lot of it. Relativity Media is also partners with a Chinese government owned film company who has a vested interest in these victims not realizing their victims. http://relativitymedia.com/press/relativity-continues-expansion-china/
Now I invite you to talk a walk around any media we create for www.sexworkersanonymous.com Even though I appear white, you won't see a focus on either female or males, nor will you see a race bias either. You won't see predominantly African Americans, or even Asians. I try and keep all "images" or "faces" off our media. There's nothing but shadows, or shapes, or graphics, or even no images at all. The reason for this is because sex trafficking is men or women, any age, any race, any sexual identify and any religion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33weIPOhqVU One of the most famous madams in all American history is Heidi Fleiss and she's JEWISH. Alex Adams - Romanian http://www.apnewsarchive.com/1995/LOS-ANGELES-AP-Elizabeth-Adams-a-Beverly-Hills-madam/id-2525bd26e7ee781e5e2a655c9c36dcd0 Jason Itzler - JEWISH. The Mayflower Madam was a Mayflower descendent or WHITE. http://observer.com/2013/02/the-mayflower-marketer-sydney-biddle-barrows-is-up-to-new-tricks/ As for these Chinese victims - BUDDHIST. So guess what? Sex trafficking can be anyone, of any race, culture, gender, religion or lack of religion.
Now let's be logical here for a moment. If my warnings that I've relocated back to Los Angeles because I've been getting an alarming amount of phone calls into our hotline that make me believe we're in another HIV epidemic in this country like I witnessed in the 1980's is so completely "whack" let's just examine some independent evidence for a moment.
There's a confirmed HIV epidemic in Tijuana, Mexico. http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2015/12/aids_epidemic_could_end_focus_on_sex_workers_prep_drugs.html We also know that the Mexican Cartel is the STRONGEST criminal ring right now in this country with respect to drugs. Now sex trafficking is NOT pimping and it's NOT sex work. Sex trafficking is like a table that rests on four legs. One leg is sex trafficking. The other is DRUG trafficking, as well as other crimes such as money laundering. The third leg is corruption. Trafficking doesn't exist without corruption. The fourth leg is the disease factor.
Anywhere sex trafficking exists you will have HIV and other STD's. Why? Because trafficking by it's definition has no regard for the law, safety, and goes strictly by the highest dollar. Now what does the "highest dollar" do in sex work? It pays to NOT USE CONDOMS. Which means what? DISEASE. This is why Amsterdam shut down it's windows district in 2007 - because the sex trafficking attracted by the protection offered by the legal brothels (I'm sorry but sex trafficking goes up in areas where it's legal because that gives the pimps extra protection) attracts in the pimps to place their disease free girls in those legal establishments.
Then when they get sick do you think they let them retire? Once a woman in a legal brothel, or the legit porn industry (one that actually requires disease testing negative out of their performers and shoots films by the book), comes down with HIV do you think she just ups and quits? If she's in the industry by choice YES. If she's not, if she's being forced do you think the pimp just says "okay you've earned your freedom now so you can go?"
No. The minute she gets sick with HIV, or HEP C, or HPV or some other disease preventing them from working in the legal sex industry they don't get to leave or retire. They're put to work in the ILLEGAL sex trade, the porn shoots that don't care about even asking for disease status on the set, and the webcam industry.
Does this exist? Last month I got approached by a producer who asked me if I would agree to shoot an oral sex scene with multiple men. I told the guy that even if I were interested I would decline because my mouth was in bad need of dental work. He looked at me like he had no idea what I was talking about. I had to explain to him that while I have a dental problem that is causing cuts in the inside of my mouth - those are cuts that the virus could enter my body through and thus expose me to HIV orally. He didn't ask for my HIV status nor were the men in the shoot asked for any proof of their HIV status which I'm sorry is a piece of cake to fake. We saw with the Housewives of Orange County and Brooks' phony cancer scare that it's easy to draw up fake medical papers.
Which is why I attribute a lot of what's happening right now to the shutting down of the AIM clinic and the way Michael Weinstein is handling things at the AHF. I have been writing and writing and callling and calling him about the calls I've been receiving for two years now offering to get involved and help. I was involved in EFFECTIVE outreach campaigns to the sex industry in the 1980's and I know what works and WHAT DOES NOT. I can assure you what's happening right now in this country is putting all of us right now at risk.
Which includes the fact we're refusing to talk to me about the fact we need to be doing outreach into these Asian massage parlors. You want to talk about Craigslist ads? How 423 ads for "Asian massage" in Los Angeles? http://losangeles.craigslist.org/search/thp?query=asian How about 283 in Orange County? http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/search/thp?query=asian Or 357 in San Diego - which is next to the Mexican border? http://sandiego.craigslist.org/search/thp?query=asian
I got a call last week from a working girl telling me there's even an epidemic going on clear up in Durham, N. Carolina. https://raleigh.craigslist.org/search/thp?query=asian Or the reported outreach in Indiana? http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/05/13/indiana-hiv-outbreak-a-warning-to-rural-america/27182089/ It hasn't "peaked" by the way - they just stopped testing and those infected were chased out of town. Read this article about arrests in the "Music" case I'm speaking of based out of Pasadena where three pimps have been convicted. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/24/gary-kidgell-yan-zhang-sex-trafficking-kansas_n_3647993.html Read how this ring has massage parlors all over the country. Read about the HIV epidemic in China. Now please explain to me WHY no one will come and talk to me about shutting this ring down if not about TRAFFICKING, then from a public safety perspective with respect to disease transmission?
Now you see why maybe there's more than just Charlie Sheen involved here trying to smear us, shut us up, and shut down our program - because from where I'm sitting I'm the only one TALKING ABOUT THIS STUFF.
Because while everyone's been running around so busy worried about whether someone is being "trafficked" or not - the disease doesn't care. It's passing within the sex industry to all of us. If we learned anything from Elizabeth Glaser - it's that the virus can jump from your husband to you to your baby and you've done NOTHING wrong. It doesn't matter if that hooker who gave it to him was "forced" or not. http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/paul-michael-glaser-starsky-hutch-2270277
This country made a HORRIBLE mistake with the TVRA of 2003 and we've got to stop this INSANITY of drawing these lines between "victim" and "sex worker" that's going on. Let's be clear about this - the sex industry is an industry. Like ANY industry, manufacturing, electronics, diamonds, farming, service, hospitality, fashion - trafficking exists. Where you have trafficking you have people who aren't protecting their health and therefore present a health risk to themselves and to the general public.
So please please - let's start opening up dialogues about this because no amount of money is going to mean anything when people are dead. Not just hookers you don't care about - but your wives and children because of being exposed to these diseases. Yeah yeah yeah I know I'm a big "party pooper" but that's kind of the perspective you get when the party is over. My view is why I left the sex industry in 1985 and why I'm reaching out to now help others. And from where I sit - only one type of person tries to stop me.
