LA to vote on mandatory condoms in porn

#1
I usually fast-forward to the money shot in facial videos or download edited clips that start right before the money shot. So this wouldn't affect my viewing unless they banned facials. But this would make creampie shoots impossible to do and stay within the law.

I would love to see aspect discussed on local news: "Could it be the end of the creampie in L.A.? Find out on the 6 o'cock news."
Condoms for porn shoots to be on June L.A. ballot

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A ballot initiative requiring Los Angeles porn actors to wear condoms has qualified for the June election, organizers said on Tuesday.

America's second-largest city is home to the multibillion dollar U.S. porn industry, which health advocates say is riddled with sexually transmitted diseases.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation said the city clerk certified the over 71,000 signatures it helped collect, far over the 41,000 needed for a ballot initiative that would go before city voters in the presidential primary in June.

"There are thousands of STDs in this industry," said Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, adding that jurisdictions pass the issue around like a hot potato.

"It's the ick factor. They don't want to deal with this because it's sex, and because it's porn," he added.

Weinstein compared the measure to other public health laws that the city enforces, like those regulating massage parlors and smoking in public.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health has issued over $125,000 in fines against porn producers in the past five years for various violations, but some of those citations are on appeal, according to figures from the agency.

Despite facing fines, most major porn companies continue to shoot without condoms, and some in the industry have argued that using the latex would take away from the fantasy appeal of their product.

"History has shown us that regulating sexual behavior between consenting adults does not work," said Diane Duke, executive director of Free Speech Coalition, the trade association for the adult entertainment industry.

"The proposed regulation would likely diminish existing protocols and force adult companies out of the city, out of state or underground making it ultimately much less safe for performers," she said.

The head of California's Occupational Safety and Health department, Ellen Widess, on December 23 told a Los Angeles deputy city attorney who is disputing the measure in court that the regulatory body has no objection to the measure.

More nonsense to "protect" people from themselves. If you don't own your own body you don't have real liberty.

Exactly. (See what you're capable of when you're not posting conspiracy bullshit? You actually contributed to the conversation and made a good point. I want to see more of that from you.)

I don't know about anyone else, but I immediately turn off a porn when I see a condom. It's supposed to be a fantasy of sorts. I don't want to see that shit.

Why would you worry about condoms? You can't get pregnant.

Nope. No worries at all.

I know what you're doing. You're trying to trick him, and turn him into a yes man. A fucking gatekeeper.

Don't fall for his trickery, Kirk. Just keep speaking the truth.

Ok, serious question: do you like knowing that some guys in porn are gay for pay?

I've got to be honest, I'm a sick enough puppy that if I knew a particular porn chick (that I was attracted to anyway) was a full-on lesbian and only did dudes in porn for the money, I'd get a sick little kick out of that. And maybe not so little of a kick.

As the resident gay man, and forcing you to speak for ALL gay men in the entire world, does that same kick occur for gay guys concerning gay for pay guys?
