#myadultattorney spoke to The Daily Beast about performers’ shifting sentiments and emerging legal issues in light of Roe v. Wade’s recent overturn.

Cyberspace (August 8, 2022) – Corey D. Silverstein, the driving force behind and Adult.Law, recently spoke to Aurora Snow and The Daily Beast about performers’ shifting sentiments and emerging legal issues in light of the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade.

Read “The Supreme Court May Have Just Killed Porn’s ‘Creampie’” in The Daily Beast.

According to Silverstein, performers are rethinking the scenes they may want to book in light of safety issues and what could happen in the (rare) instance of conception occurring during work-related sex performance.

“This has always been a major area that all performers should be considering, and while Dobbs v. Jackson does not make abortion outright illegal, each individual state is now left to govern the issue. Depending on where a performer is located, an abortion may be far more difficult to obtain,” said Silverstein. “It is a necessity for performers to become more familiar with abortion laws in all states that they interact with.”

Silverstein also explains in the piece, for performers fearful that their home state could prohibit interstate travel to a state that still allows abortion, that this would be unconstitutional.

“Following the Supreme Court’s decision, conservative politicians from various states have suggested that they would seek to criminalize and prosecute individuals who attempt to travel from a state that prohibits abortion to a state that allows abortion,” Silverstein explained. “The mere suggestion by these politicians is disturbing to say the least, but it is unlikely that any law of this type would survive a constitutional challenge.”
