How Does An Adult Entertainment Business Operate?
Adult entertainment is a multi-billion dollar industry, made up of DVDs, online websites, special broadcasts, live shows, and adult magazines. Many people are under the misconception that “blue film” and adult entertainment are the same thing. While there are certainly adult films, adult movies, or “blue film” movies that contain erotic sexual content intended only to arouse and fulfill the audience, blue films are not necessarily aimed at sexual satisfaction. blue films, on the other hand, present sexual fantasies, and usually incorporate highly erotically arousing content like nudity and sometimes sexual intercourse, in order to amaze and titillate the audience.
An adult entertainment production, therefore, can be a blue film aimed at adult entertainment or it may also be aimed at sensual pursuits, including masturbation, and even some form of non-sexual exploration and stimulation. It is important, then, for a potential applicant to understand whether the license application he submits to the local authority is legally accurate and if the applicant can actually receive a sexual performance license. In most states, an applicant seeking a license to perform in adult entertainment must supply the local licensing board with a list of references that can verify the applicant’s legitimacy. Additionally, the applicant must provide documentation such as a legitimate business address or a copy of a CD or DVD.
As part of the licensing process, the local licensing board will review the application. If the applicant is granted an adult entertainment license, he will need to submit proof that he has purchased and read the materials provided by the producer. He will also have to provide documentation proving that he has a high school diploma or that his educational achievements qualify him to be a qualified teacher. The applicant control persons, who will oversee the production and distribution of the blue film will be required to submit their identification cards and obtain state and local permits before they can start the business.
The producers and distributors of adult entertainment establishments are required to submit audited financial statements to the office of the treasurer on a yearly basis. The office will inspect these companies to ensure that they are following all applicable state and county laws. If the adult entertainment establishments fail to adhere to local, county, and state requirements, local law enforcement will be called to conduct random inspections. These inspections will allow the community to remain calm and prevent vandalism, disorder, and disturbances of all kinds.
The process of obtaining a license to perform adult entertainment will not be completed without the submission of at least three years of tax returns. This is due to the fact that the applicant control person will be required to submit his social security number when applying for any type of license. This social security number will grant the applicant access to special opportunities that are available to persons with legitimate licenses.
The application for a license to perform adult entertainment will also contain a requirement that the applicant signs a document known as an “assignment of responsibility.” This assignment of responsibility declares that the adult entertainer is liable for any acts or events that transpire in a home or any other place that one person uses for sexual conduct. The applicant must also promise to never give consent to any sexual conduct in the home. This assignment of responsibility must be signed by the applicant for a signature that is valid, notarized, and is current on the date that this document becomes a public record.
