Porn Companies Threaten To Leave LA As New Condom Law Goes Into Effect

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Adult video producers are threatening to leave Los Angeles as a city ordinance governing the $1 billion pornography industry goes into effect.

The new law, which went into effect Monday, requires adult video stars to wear condoms on shoots.

Health groups say it’s essential to protect adult video stars from sexually transmitted disease.

The adult video industry opposes the measure, saying it does extensive testing and that performers should be able to choose whether they use condoms.

Supporters of a measure that would require adult video stars to wear condoms on shoots throughout Los Angeles County say they’ve already collected half of the 230,000 signatures needed to get the measure on the November ballot.

      I used to live in Ventura. I think about 25 miles west of Ventura would also be a nice area.

      …and let a billion dollar industry leave as well…smart move.

        Drug traffic is even more money. I’m sure you don’t want to lose that industry either, based on your twisted logic.

  5. Dottie says:

    Let them go, we don’t need that kind of industry around here. I’m sure they spread their diseased outside of the industry.

    1. John Q says:

      and once they leave.. the city or county will no longer have their tax revenue..it’s looks like your taxes are going to go up, Dottie

    If they leave, it will just be YET ANOTHER one to say good riddance to southern California and it’s over-regulatory police-state they have forced upon us all in recent years. And politicians couldn’t care less (except for votes – which is what this is really about).

    1. Christina39 says:

      In defense of California and all its regulatory, police state mentality; it isn’t until you see another state without it that you realize that Californians take a lot for granted with the protection Californians get as part of that over regulation such as housing codes. If you go to some other states and your apartment roof is falling in, there are no housing codes to protect you..

    Yes, please pull out before the time comes,

  8. Southern says:

    Let’s you people spend more time on pushing companies out of your state than attempting to bring them in. Who is going to pay your bills for the city and state? Between the Rappers and Movie stars, having sex with anything that living, what wrong with porn. At lease they have an invested interest in keeping people healthy in the movie.

  9. Marky Mark says:

    Oh, they’re threatening to leave Los Angeles. Poor f’n cry babies! Not even Las Vegas wants the porn industry – THAT’S A KNOWN FACT!

    I say let them leave, and if they continue threatening, then let’s get them on terrorist threats….lol

    1. Christina39 says:

      You are correct, Las Vegas does not want them because they ruined the infra structure of the city.

    Long live porn.
