(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has released a public service announcement (PSA) featuring Teravision President and multi-award winning adult actress Tera Patrick along with her husband, musician and actor Evan Seinfeld, for the RTA (''Restricted to Adults'') website label.
The RTA PSA, which is available for viewing on http://www.youtube.com/Asacprta, features Patrick and Seinfeld discussing the RTA website label and encouraging parents to use parental filtering software in order to protect children from viewing age-inappropriate content. The video is the third in an ongoing series of PSAs produced by ASACP featuring different adult entertainment stars. Previous PSAs featured Wicked Pictures Contract performer, writer, and director Stormy Daniels.
RTA is the adult entertainment industry’s initiative to protect children from viewing content that is age-inappropriate. It was developed by ASACP out of a need for an easy to use and internationally recognized label that designates content for adults only. The RTA label is a unique string of ''meta data'' which can easily be inserted into the computer code of any website. Parental filtering software recognizes the tag and prevents children from viewing adult content. The RTA label is free and universally available. ASACP launched RTA in November 2006 and it now has nearly five million page link-ins.
''Internet service providers, browsers, filtering software, and even computer operating systems such as Microsoft’s Vista offer parental control options. But for those systems to work, websites intended for ‘adults only’ need to be labeled as such. RTA makes that possible,'' stated ASACP CEO Joan Irvine. ''the adult entertainment industry is doing their part and we are thrilled that Tera and Evan have volunteered their time in order to remind parents to do their part by utilizing parental filtering options.''
Patrick added, ''Evan and I take doing our part in the industry seriously to make the web a safer place for children. We really believe what we say in the PSA. It is not for appearances, but we take it to heart. Certain sects of our society and our government have the adult industry under a microscope using it as a scapegoat for all things unholy. We have a social responsibility to keep adult entertainment ‘restricted to adults.’ We are so honored to have been approached by ASACP, and to be included in such an important message. Stormy Daniels is not only one of my peers, but a friend and I am proud to stand along side her, in the name of something as important as the RTA label. If we don’t police ourselves, someone else will.''
Plans are being made to make ASACP’s PSA series available in formats that can be used on cable networks and on DVDs.
RTA has been honored by the American Society of Association Executives and the Center for Association Leadership, Washington, DC. Additionally ASACP has received Certificates of Recognition from Congresswoman Jane Harmon and the Mayors of Los Angeles, San Diego, Redondo Beach, and the City of West Hollywood acknowledging ASACP’s efforts to help parents prevent their children from viewing age-inappropriate content with the RTA website label.
Founded in 1996, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating child pornography from the Internet. ASACP battles child pornography through its Cp reporting hotline, and by organizing the efforts of the online adult industry to combat the heinous crime of child sexual abuse. ASACP also works to help parents prevent children from viewing age-inappropriate material online. For more information, go to www.ASACP.org and www.RTAlabel.org.
