Girls Gone Wild Producers Violated Sexual-Exploitation Law

And they at least agreed to pay $2.1 million for doing so.

CBS News

(CBS/AP) The company that produces the "Girls Gone Wild" tapes of young women baring their breasts and acting in other sexual situations pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges and agreed to pay fines totaling $2.1 million. Mantra Films Inc., based in Santa Monica, Calif., made the plea in U.S. District Court in Florida on charges of failing to maintain proof of age and indentification for its young performers in sexually explicit films.
It took long enough for this failure to be identified. For what these women are consenting to, the validity of consent given by girls and women who are most likely drinking underage is questionable. I doubt the women have 3 days to withdraw their consent or even have a way of challenging the contract they signed.

I also wonder if the Girls Gone Wild producers are supplying underage girls with alcohol and if they are doing so if that potentially criminal behavior is being fully investigated. Since the producers are reportedly luring young women to private areas where they are attempting to get more explicit video footage than the flashing of breasts, there may be even more legal issues involved.

In addition to being sexually exploited, these women are being financially exploited and likely have not been given full disclosure about the different ways this company will make money from the video images being recorded.

this is a good article and it also brings to mind a question i've had off and on about whether or not there are state laws mandating cetain time frames for actors/actresses in sexually explicit material to get out of their signed contracts.

after hearing what goes on behind the scenes at the GGW headquarters, i hope so.

Hello! Your blog is rather interesting. I have nothing positive to say about Girls Gone Wild. I have always been against such types of sites. But when I saw it on www.pisedconsumer.com I was astonished. The thing is that it has so many customers! Unbeliveble! And even they are dissatisfied taking into consideration the amount of negative reports posted by the customers.
