Giving Penis Injections Can Only End One Way: Terribly
Whoever said courtroom dramas were boring obviously didn’t see the one about the guy who filed a complaint against his gay porn company employers after they asked him to inject drugs into the penises of their porn stars.
Oh, wait. That actually happened.
Listen. I only lose faith in humanity like, once every two weeks or so, but this one is putting me over-budget, guys.
Ronald Baker claims that Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network and other companies, including defendants Falcon Studios and Raging Stallion Studios, repeatedly asked him to inject the erectile-dysfunction drug TriMix into the penises of their porn stars. Apparently they’re called “models,” but whatevz.
Baker said he disagreed for months before he finally agreed to inject the models. But when he finally said yes, he poked himself with a used needle on accident. When he refused to inject models again, the company reportedly stopped paying him and discontinued his health benefits.
So now Baker, who has since tested negative for HIV and Hepatitis C, has filed a complaint against his former employers, seeking that cash money.
I’m having a really difficult time wrapping my head around how this came about, so let me introduce my laundry list of WTF:
- Whose prescription is this? Are these random drugs? What?
- Ryan Baker isn’t a medical professional. No offense, Ry, but you don’t know how to inject… well… anything.
- Granted it’s alleged, but why aren’t we testing models for HIV before they “go to work?”
- Again allegedly, but firing your employee after asking them to do verifiably sketchy things for your company can’t be the best way to handle this situation, right?
Am I really that naive or is this whole situation just not normal?
