Investigate pornographic industry talent agency Ideal Image Management
This petition had 26 supporters
As of February 5, 2014 a woman (who shall be referred to as “Victim L.“) contacted Alexandra Mayers of the PornNewsToday.com team in regards to licensed and bonded pornstar talent agency Ideal Image Management which is headed by Jason Toler aka Tee Reel.
Victim L. (who is very new to the pornographic industry) stated that she signed with Ideal Image Management Decemeber 11, 2013 and that she was booked as a model for 2 pornographic studios. Though she asked for a copy of her agency contract upon signing with the agency, it was not provided to her until approximately 2 weeks later. Victim L. primarily worked with an agent employed by Ideal Image Management by the name of Corey Carnes, who insured her that she would receive payment from the studios she worked for within one to two weeks (via a payroll system).
The 2nd porn studio Victim L. worked for on December 22, 2013 (the focus of this report & petition), was Alicia Silver Productions (which has a history of unethical & unprofessional business practices as reported by RipOffReport.com). Victim L. was told she would be compensated $1,200 (minus a 15% agency fee) for the assignment and that the content she was booked for would be showcased on a website called AllOver30.com
The assignment for Alicia Silver Productions consisted of 8 photo sets, 3 solo videos and 1 boy/girl hardcore sex scene with male performer Dick Chibbles [which is an extensive amount of content considering what the PornNewsToday team views as a very low wage - Victim L. was kept on set for 13 hours].
The content was produced in a private home in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Condoms (protective barriers) were NOT made available to Victim L. for the boy/girl hardcore sex scene which is in direct violation of Cal-Osha regulations.
After 30 days Victim L. had not received payment from the Alicia Silver Productions assignment. Victim L. inquired with Ideal Image Management and Tee Reel directly as to when she would receive payment but she was consistently given the run around.
Victim L. spoke with the Los Angeles police department and was told that her dispute with Ideal Image Management is a civil matter. Victim L. has also contacted the Labor Commissioner’s office in regards to the matter and has submitted paperwork and various pieces of evidence in regards to this issue at her own expense.
In Victim L.’s initial email to the PornNewsToday team, she stated that though she had never been asked to escort by Ideal Image Management, she had heard from her peers that the agency books their talent for escorting (private prostitution assignments) regularly. Upon investigation, three pornstars currently represented by Ideal Image Management (Lana Violet, Emy Reyes & Victoria Rae Black) are actively available through the escort agency The Luxury Companion. In addition, pornstars Selma Sins and Nikki Next are affiliated with James Bartholet of Galaxy Publicity (a man who is known to work with active escorts).
As of February 5, 2014 when Victim L. contacted the PornNewsToday team, she still had not received a status update in regards to the payment she was owed. The PornNewsToday team decided to telephone Ideal Image Management the afternoon of February 6, 2014. Upon speaking with Corey Carnes, we were told that Victim L.’s check for $1,020 had been mailed on February 5, 2014 (over 30 days after the Alicia Silver Productions booking) and a USPS tracking number was provided. We were informed that the check was mailed to the address they had on file for Victim L.
CalOSHA (the California Department of Industrial Relations) needs to investigate Jason Toler aka Tee Reel and Ideal Image Management in regards to his consistent booking of talent with studios who fail to comply with the existing condom mandates, of which California Assembly member Isadore Hall III and Michael Weinstein of the Aids Healthcare Foundation have proven are required by law for porn performers.
As of current Ideal Image Management and Jason Toler aka Tee Reel are putting the lives of the talent they represent at risk by sending them to studios of which embody unsafe working condititions.
As of current Jason Toler aka Tee Reel has notified Alexandra Mayers that he will be suing her in retaliation to her helping Victim L. and bringing to light these issues.
