What if psychologists ruled the world? In real life?

Porn star gets HIV and employment figures drop in USA

custom_movie_directors_equipment_12462The American porn industry was temporarily shut down by its trade body, The Free Speech Coalition, for 12 days after one of its stars contracted HIV and other actors in the industry had to be  tested.

There are only about 3,000 actors in the adult film business but Jobs in the wider film industry slumped by 22,000 as camera and production crews, which can comprise from 2 to 20 people, were also affected.

The same thing happened in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Overall there has been less job creation in America than expected so blaming the poor employment figures on a porn star seems a bit OTT.
