Axel Braun Raises Performer Minimum Age to 21

Oct 4, 2013 4:45 PM PST

LOS ANGELES — XBIZ Award-winning director Axel Braun is adding a new stipulation for adult performers who wish to appear in sexually explicit roles in any of his movies: effective immediately the minimum age requirement will be 21.

“If the law says you are not old enough to handle alcohol responsibly, then you are probably not ready to make a career decision that will have such strong repercussions on the rest of your life," Braun said. “After 23 years in the business I have come to strongly believe that an 18-year-old fresh out of high school has a completely different perspective on life than he or she will have three years later, and I just want to allow them enough time to make a more informed, mature decision. This may not be a popular choice, but it is a personal one, and it is what my conscience tells me to do. I simply don’t feel comfortable anymore shooting talent under 21.”

This policy will be in effect for all Axel Braun Productions movies, as well as for all projects directed by Braun for other companies.
