The Washington Post interviewed Veljko Fotak in a report on adult performers who say their income is threatened by new regulations intended to fight child sexual abuse and sex trafficking. Fotak said the alcohol, tobacco and pornography industries have traditionally been recession-proof but remain vulnerable to law enforcement crackdowns or pressure from financial institutions. “It is not surprising that the payment processors are cutting ties with the pornography industry,” Fotak said. “Yet, I think it sets a dangerous precedent.
