Mike Itkis, New York congressional candidate has released an online porn video starring himself in a bid to highlight his “sex positive” political platform.
Mike Itkis is challenging Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for his seat in the 12th Congressional District on a platform of legalizing sex work, calling the tape “a conversation piece.”
One of Itkis’ key campaign issues is decriminalizing sex work, so to promote it, he participated in an adult film which he posted to the sex site PornHub on his own account.
Itkis – whose bio describes himself as ‘Not married. No kids. Not celibate. Atheist.’ – stars with adult actress Nicole Sage in the X-rated clip, which features the pair having sex on camera twice over the course of the past year.
The video, which is about 13 minutes long opens with the performer Sage, clarifying that she consents to the scene and is ‘not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.’
Itkis then walks into the scene and clarifies that the two have been tested for STDs and established a safe word (‘Stop’).
After the initial scene ends, a video cuts to the pair again, fully clothed, subtitled ‘Los Angeles, CA, October 2021’ before establishing consent again and going back to performing.
