California Workplace Officials Discuss Rules On Condom Use In Porn

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Representatives of the porn industry and health care advocates are meeting with state workplace safety officials to discuss draft rules on mandating condoms in adult entertainment.

Several adult film performers voiced objection to the state’s Division of Occupational Safety & Health draft proposal Tuesday, saying their industry was being unfairly scrutinized. They say the hygienic practices of contenders in bloody TV fighting matches don’t face similar regulation.

State workplace safety official Deborah Gold told the meeting that there are already rules governing other forms of entertainment, and the day’s meeting was focused on the porn industry.

The draft rules could later go to the state’s Occupational Safety & Health Standards Board for public meetings and ultimately become new regulations.

    “Several adult film performers voiced objection to the state’s Division of Occupational Safety & Health draft proposal Tuesday, saying their industry was being unfairly scrutinized.

    I think this article need clarification. This is supposed to be about condom use in the porn industry. Now we have the state Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board holding public meetings? Then we have the CA workplace ‘officials’ and what do they have to do with the porn industry? One too many organizations here. How is the public opinion about condom use required? Please clarify????
