Fairporn Standard

The Fairporn Standard v0.3 has 4 core principles that every production must meet. These standards are a work in progress, and we welcome input from any industry stakeholders.


Genuine Consent

Participating in a scene is ultimatley the decision of the performer.

1.1 All acts to be performed must be agreed in writing at least 24 hours before the performer is due on set for the first time.

1.2 Performers must be informed about who will be appearing in a scene with them before shooting starts.

1.3 The performer is able to revoke consent at any time by expressing this clearly to any member of the production crew or performer on set. This includes declining to perform any sex act even if it was previously agreed to.

1.4 The performer is able to choose and use their preferred safer sex method and may bring and use their own preferred methods.

1.5 The performer is able call a halt to a scene at any point and to have the cameras tuerned off immediately. This must be respected by the producer or director.

1.6 Performers must sign a 2257 age verification form (or local equivalent) to prove they are over 18 and produce valid government ID as proof.

1.7 A designated person who acts as the performer advocate must be available on set for the duration of the shoot. This person is responsible for the welbeing of all performers and relaying all concerns commnunicated by the performers to the director. If the director does not act to remedy these concerns in a timely manner, the designated performer advocate is compelled to call a halt to the shoot.

The producer has a duty of payment, regardless of performance.
