tldr she refused to have sex with a bisexual man saying she didnt want to have the chance of getting STD's
because STDs are high in the gay community , and some places dont test the actors.
also this comes after california has legalized transferment of STDS knowingly withiout letting the other person know

from what i and others have heard the man was promesciues -cant spell that- outside of work and she asked him to get a test and wouldnt

lots of people shamed and demonized her calling her homophobic.


sad that it ended this way, what happened to my body my choice

Twitter, and social media in general, is the poison of the 21st century.

Death by verbal stoning. We haven't changed a micron in 2,000 years.

Also what Kao said also made me laugh

sort of sad in a way, guess when you're a porn star what you want to do with your body and feel safe isn't alright, well so states the "fans" who bullied her and called her names because she didn't want to get involved in such things. last I checked they have to use a condom in porn in said state or face a harsh fine, refusing a test is against the law as well, new laws state porn stars have to do blood tests from time to time. don't know the woman, don't watch porn, but too bad there aren't crimes (yet) regarding cyber bulling and bullying in general (to kill yourself) perhaps a good time to start one I suppose.... regardless shame on bullies everywhere.

Shouldn't be bullied for not sleeping with a guy. I wonder why she didn't just say some generic reason instead but , nevermind it doen't matter. Dumb to kill yourself for.

From what I gather through sifting through all of this and what fellow performers said:

- Different testing protocols may be used by some gay porn studios so there could be a heightened risk.

- Every performer has their own no list of other performers they won't work with. Both due to possible protocol differences and because they may not trust what that performer does in their private lives or off the books ( promiscuity, off the books porn work, criminal record, etc ). This was the case here. Ames did not trust the performer that was brought in to shoot with her.

It needs to be noted that a male adult performer who was harassing her in the twitter storm specifically *did* tell her to kill herself and she was already suffering from depression.

I'm surprised there are still pornstars

Honestly, a pornstar, they could care less about a pornstars and her choice. If that's the profession you seek because your body is the only thing that makes you money, deal with it.

She could have easily said, well then fuck you I won't work for you anymore, but what would she have to fall back on? Probably nothing.

A sad world sometimes.

And let me tell you something, there are probably Billions of videos, and you wouldn't even notice she was even a pornstar.

But hey, the day I feel sorry for a pornstars I'll let you know when that day comes

Its sick how the left are attacking that woman for CHOOSING who to have sex with and not have sex with.

They filled her twitter with insults calling her a homophone and telling her to kill herself in mass. Well they got what they wanted. They successfully killed a woman by denying her choice of who she can have sex with and cannot while calling her a bigot and a homophone.

Its as if they want to deprive women of the freedom of choice. Almost as if women are subservient to men like a certain warlord said.

<script src="js/seriousresponse.js">
This story seems to be easily directed into any narrative either side would want it to be painted.
On the right, your response coincides with that of many others that have an agenda against the left.
On the left, they attacked her for numerous reasons that coincide with their narrative.
My best bet from reading both sides is this:

The left attacked her because of her phrasing.
Yes, it's pettifogging and asinine.
This is why I usually suggest that someone speak to one another vocally, rather than be 100% reliant on text-based responses.
Let me translate the Tweet to Mentality on the Left™



"To whoever takes the job that I turned down for this company, you're shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn before. This is bullshit that I was asked to work with someone who has done gay porn before. Do agents really not give a fuck about who they're representing? I do my homework for my body."

Reading it in this tone means that she refuses to work with those who have done gay porn in any way, shape, or form.
This also allows someone to assume that most people in the adult entertainment industry does not have to go through various screenings to avoid sexually transmitted diseases (including AIDS).

My own view is that she was allowed to do whatever the hell she wanted to do.
I just disapprove of announcing it on social media as though whoever decided to take the position that she rejected for personal reasons was making some horrible decision to work with someone who had been screened for sexually transmitted diseases.
It was a comment that was vaguely spreading misinformation about the adult entertainment industry (not that it has much going for itself in terms of morality, of course).

I hold the same view for any position.
Employees seem to be more than happy to vent frustrations after the fact without giving the company a chance to make things better in terms of working conditions.
It stems from the whole idea of quitting and calling out your previous employer because you were too scared to actually call them out while you were still employed with them.
As for her right to reject a role because of her personal views?
By all means, that's everybody's right to sleep with whoever they want (homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, pansexual, whatever the case).

The right reads it as the left bullying a women who's deciding what to do with her body.
Criticizing the left for this is hypocritical by the right, who are notorious for wanting to limit the amount of freedom a woman has with her body (i.e., abortions).
On the same hand, the left who bullied her are being just as hypocritical.
In the end, both sides are trying to politicize a woman's death.
Bunch of dullards.
