An online survey has found that many people in the United States have not heard of an adult dance studio.
A survey by Fusion of the sex-club industry suggests the number of people who are aware of adult entertainment in the country is smaller than it should be.
The study by the National Adult Entertainment Association of America (NEA) and the Sex and Entertainment Industry Association (SEIA) also found that a large number of sex-studies and clubs are operated by people with backgrounds outside the United Nations and other international organizations.
The report said many clubs have not updated their websites and do not have an on-site sign-in system.
It also found more than 90 percent of the surveyed adult entertainment industry workers were either non-U.S. citizens or residents of countries that do not recognize sex-work as a crime.
Sex-studys are often located in the most upscale neighborhoods and have an “exclusive” vibe, according to the survey.
They often do not advertise their location on websites and are often more expensive than other sex-industry businesses.
Many establishments are located in locations such as hotel lobbies, office buildings and strip clubs, which is illegal in many U.S., Mexican and Canadian countries.
The survey also found there is a shortage of women, and a lack of women of color, to work in the industry.
The American Society of Human Resource Management said in a statement that sex-workers should be treated with respect, and that the sex industry should not be a way for pimps and johns to make a quick buck.
Sex workers should be paid for their labor, the society said.
The NEA, SEIA and the National Association of Professional Promoters and Contractors (APPR) all have offices in Los Angeles.
Fusion reported the survey on Tuesday.
It is not the first time the industry has faced criticism.
In March, The Associated Press reported that sex workers were being trafficked into prostitution in Los Angelas, including some from Mexico.
In September, AP reported that a study found that only about a third of sex workers surveyed were able to access their full benefits under federal health care programs.
