Trichomoniasis In The UK Adult Business What Is It?


It's been reported that two female performers in the UK have contracted Trichomoniasis in the UK adult industry. 

While it is a common STI it has not been given the same status in the adult industry where it has gone undetected until a model brought it to the industries attention several  years ago and was subsequently penalised by her peers for scaremongering. She had no idea why she was suffering ill health until she was tested for and diagnosed with Trichomoniasis

Unfortunately, those who are not in the adult industry and not regularly tested could easily be going around unaware why they are suffering with their health and it is for that reason we are making you aware of this STD that can remain undetected until complication arise over time from  being left untreated. Its also important to recognise this is not exclusive to females. Men should read the link below and consider getting tested if they are showing signs of having it
UKAP (UK Adult Producers Association) engaged with the clinics of that time to get it on the list of tests as standard but over the years, with cutbacks on services, testing for trichomoniasis was dropped.
In view of this recent reporting thanks to Rhiannon Ryder, UKAP will engage with 56 Dean Street and other clinics on behalf of the adult business to reinstate this test but it may involve paying for it. The adult industry must recognise that if it is to maintain a specific standard of testing that this may fall outside of the basic testing required of the general population and paying for a higher standard of test will give the adult industry better leverage in the event of cost cutting with the NHS

The advice is, if you have never been tested for it then go and get a test to find out before complications set in. You can read more about this from the link below. Do not expect the clinic to tell you. You must ask for it specifically as they may not consider it a priority doing their daily routine

If you support this initiative then you should join UKAP where you can voice your opinions and make the changes you need to make a better business for all involved
