'Porn 101,' By Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, Educates About Adult Film Industry (VIDEO)

Porn is a lot of things to a lot of people, but it's also a business. And if you're looking to get involved, you first need to educate yourself about the ins and outs of the industry.

In an effort to provide crucial information about how the adult entertainment industry actually works, the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC), an advocacy group made up of porn stars, has released a video titled "Porn 101."

Intended to be used as an educational resource, this video provides nuts and bolts information about health and wellness, performers' legal rights and the business side of adult entertainment.

In light of the recent HIV epidemic gripping the porn industry, the importance of resources like this video cannot be stressed enough. Check it out above.
