A point that I find curious: The actors are to submit to one STI (sexually transmitted infection is the preferred nonjudgemental nomenclature instead of sexually transmitted disease) panel, not several over a period of time.
For example, I believe that the standard for the porn industry is every 14 days.August 7, 2017 at 1:47 pm #21677Brad RuweParticipant
So much to process with this leak. So many questions, so little time.August 7, 2017 at 1:47 pm #21678BrianaParticipant
@kasch right!?! I was just thinking how I would LOVE an analog retreat AND a genetics test! Wonder what’s in these genes of mine. Bonus points if it comes with mind control. Someone ELSE do the thinking for me for once.August 7, 2017 at 1:48 pm #21679August 7, 2017 at 1:48 pm #21680Lukas LParticipant
Technically, isn’t it on the actor to read what it is that they are signing. It’s notike this is lawyer speak. It pretty much jumps out at you.August 7, 2017 at 1:49 pm #21681
If we were to go with this whole Horace seeing a vessel theory, wouldn’t one want to do re-occurring STI testing?August 7, 2017 at 1:50 pm #21682August 7, 2017 at 1:51 pm #21683
@bruinbown If they weren’t allowed to have sex without permission, wouldn’t they still need to have frequent STI checks just to make sure they were following the rules?August 7, 2017 at 1:53 pm #21684August 7, 2017 at 1:53 pm #21685Buz WallickModerator

Most actors would have their agent or manager read any and all documents like this.
But since Tension LLC seems to target young new actors, I would hedge a bet nearly all of them don’t have agents or managers. This might be a big reason why they want young new performers. Easier to control and don’t have to worry about an agent getting in the way.August 7, 2017 at 1:54 pm #21686August 7, 2017 at 1:56 pm #21687
@thebuz Agree completely with what you said, especially if the performers are not used to analyzing and reading contracts on their own. I’ve suffered my share of getting shafted by shitty contracts because of inexperience on my part. Throw a 17 page contract at an inexperienced person and they would get overwhelmed pretty quickly.August 7, 2017 at 1:57 pm #21688KyleParticipant
Depends on a lot of factors. Whoever is running this seems to feel they are all powerful. Is the 48 hour trek to wherever really about being at the retreat, or is it about TPTB actually going to their residences, setting up hidden cameras and audio devices, maybe putting spy software on their phones and other electronic devices, and making it so they can monitor them 24/7?
Just a though. They know where they will be for 48 hours, no danger of getting caught.August 7, 2017 at 1:58 pm #21689CandaceParticipant
I’d sign my life away to be in a project like tension. I don’t blame them for jumping in despite all the stipulations. But there’s always one bad apple in the bunch. .can’t please everyone. Hostess in black is just trying to make TPTB look bad. It’s going to take more than this to change my mind about them that’s for sure.August 7, 2017 at 1:59 pm #21690
