Monica Foster commentary:  So tonight I logged into my Facebook account and saw that male pornstar Jack Napier sent me a message (which was most likely a mass message he sent to all his contacts) requesting that I “sponsor a young man on his AIDS walk”. Well, I think it’s wonderful that Jack feels the need to raise money to help people who have AIDS – however what about taking action to assist in PREVENTING people from contracting HIV (which leads to AIDS), by supporting Assembly Bill 640 which wouldRead More

Monica Foster commentary: Question and complain about this all you want LA porn industry (specifically the Free Speech Coalition). I’ve never in my life seen (nor could I have ever imagined) such a disgusting, negative, self entitled, unjustifiably pretentious, self absorbed, prejudice, violent, immature group of thieving bullies.
