Axel Braun Makes Hep-C Testing Mandatory for All Shoots

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Director Axel Braun announced Thursday morning that effective immediately, he will require all adult performers who appear in his movies to undergo mandatory Hepatitis-C testing for all future shoots.

The new requirement will be standard for all Axel Braun Productions shoots, as well as any projects Braun directs for other companies.

"Recent events involving a possible undisclosed case of Hepatitis-C have made it very clear to me that the adult industry needs to implement additional measures in order to safeguard the health of our performers," Braun said. "Requiring a mandatory Hep-C test is an important step toward a more comprehensive system to limit the risks of exposure to sexually transmitted diseases without resorting to wearing hazmat suits."

Braun added, "Hopefully, more companies will follow on this path, as we continue to fight for the survival of our industry against Measure B."

Hep-c is not a sexually transmitted disease. It has a 1% chance of being transferred sexually snd that is not actually from bodily fluids, both people have to be bleeding and really rub one another hard. you have a better chance of getting it by accident at a hospital than you do sexually. Just my opinion. I would focus this money for prevention/testing for hiv and other health risks
