LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles City Council approved a new law Tuesday that will require adult film stars to use condoms.

The council tentatively approved the ordinance, which will require all performers in adult videos to use condoms, last week.

Ordinance supporters say the measure is needed to prevent the spread of HIV, but the adult video industry’s trade association, the Free Speech Coalition, says condoms are not necessary.

Los Angeles is the first city in the nation to approve a law requiring actors to use protection during sexual intercourse.

    What a great way to drive a multimillion dollar industry out of the area. Brilliant work!

    1. uhoh says:

      Do you even know where the majority of the movies are filmed? It’s not LA county. Get a clue..

      1. Bob says:

        And now they never will be

      2. Duh says:

        This ordinance is not for the majority movies where ever they are filmed. It’s an ordinance for porn movies that are filmed in Los Angeles. Unless your suggesting no porn movies are filmed in Los Angeles.

      3. free speech says:

        > How will the starlets/harlets get cvmshots? I guess they can always airbrush, but it’ll be a good reason to shop the next county.

      4. Richard Henkle says:

        Do you know where the majority are filmed? Cause Northridge is #1 or #2, which is in LA county.

      5. Yanni N Sarah says:

        Actually, YES they are. Most of the companies are located in Ventura Ave and Sunset. 95% of the films are produced within LA county limits. I used to work in this industry for over 10 years. YOU should get a clue, before making dumb guesses.

      6. Yanni N Sarah says:

        Actually, YES they are. Most of the companies are located in Ventura Blvd, Van Nuys Blvd and Sunset Blvd. 95% of the films are produced within LA county limits. I used to work in this industry for over 10 years. YOU should get a clue, before making dumb guesses.

      7. Jake says:

        Hate to break this to you, but the city of L.A. has no jurisdiction over the County of LA outside of city limits, so what’s your point?

      8. Support This says:


        Please support the initiative to shut down CA’s nuclear power plants!


        Signatures needed by March 2012 ! Get involved!

        Because California is on the “Ring of Fire” where 90% of earthquakes occur.

        California is on a tsunami zone.

        Nuclear power plants release radiation into the surrounding water, air, food…

      9. Steve says:

        The San Fernando Valley where most porn films are filmed (Chatsworth, Van Nuys, Reseda, Canoga Park, Woodland Hills, etc.) are all part of Los Angeles City.

        It is my understanding that the ordinance applies to shoots outside a studio (i.e. location shoots) when permits are needed. I’ve read that the ordinance would apply to films made in expensive homes and McMansions.

        I expect the porn industry will not totally leave The Valley. Maybe they’ll move their location shoots to Ventura County.

      10. jim says:

        Sorry, but the San Fernando Valley is the porn capital of the world. Most movies are made in Chatsworth, Northridge, Van Nuys, Encino, etc…all of which are located in the CITY of Los Angeles.

      11. Free Willy says:

        Anybody want to set the over/under for how long until they realize they can do this in Vegas and have no state income tax to boot?

    2. perico says:

      Too bad Obama’s father didn’t wear one—–we’d be in better shape

        That’s what your mom said….

        Or that his Mother wasn’t raised properly.

        Amen, Perico !
        Darn shame !

      4. anthony mck says:

        same goes to u

    3. Alex says:

      LOL! They aren’t an “industry” – I’m sick and tired of people trying to use that term to make the useless fluff of society sound more important and divert attention away from the alarming lack of any real industry left in this nation.

      VP of Operations
      Commenting Industry

      1. Tidmore says:

        Not an industry? Why do they call it an “erection?”

      2. ROBBOB says:

        Porn is bigger than ALL other entertainment business revenue COMBINED. What is realy funny is that very few pornos are made in LA and it is such a mobile industry, that those that are made in LA can easily move. And boy youare clueless about hard (no pun intended) industry in the US. Toyota has a dozen or so plants in the US. Subaru, Hyundia, and Mercedes all build tons of cars here. Airbus is thinking about moving the production of several models to the US.

      3. Joe says:

        Alex, you’re an idiot. look up industry and then come back and make a comment. Industries don’t have to have smoke stacks attached to them. Jesus. Go hang out with the rest of the occupy criminal hippies.

    4. tonytee says:

      i agree but california lawmakers are just plain stupid

    5. Deniserene Richards says:

      now the police will be forced to watch all the pornos to check condom lol

      1. anthony mck says:

        i wonder what that dept. is going to be named and where do you go to college to get that type of training or Degree

    6. Ron J says:

      It’s not about preventing AIDS, it’s about money for the city in the form of fines…Follow the Money

      1. Alfred Hussein Neuman says:

        The AIDS activists are crazy. Forcing porn actors to wear condoms (where controls and testing already exist), while at the same time protecting the privacy of people who test positive (which I agree with). It just feels like the activists believe the anonymous infected person is more trusted to have “safe sex” an an industry that performs regular testing.

    7. PAUL says:

      there going to make the black guys wear white condoms and the white guys wear black condoms LOL

    8. Tommy Leamy says:

      They cannot prove in what county, city, state, etc a film was produced. Unless the city of Los Angeles is going to hire an inspector to be on set to check and make sure a condom is on at all times, this is going to be one big fail.

      Also, the majority of porn is NOT shot in the city of Los Angeles contrary to what people say. So I wouldn’t be too concerned. Brazil has these laws, and we still see a good amount of Brazilian content that does not have condoms in it.

  2. Brian says:

    Who get’s the job to make sure there in compliance, and how much dose it pay?

    1. Nick Scratch says:

      Pay, shmay. How do you get hired – no pun intended lol

  3. charlie says:

    Glad to see our City Council doing some real serious work,

    1. tax says:

      They need something to do in their spare time when they are not picking your pockets.

      1. muneshadowe says:

        They prefer someone to play in their pockets.

  4. Alan Di says:

    And now the lawsuits begin.The City knows it has no authority to regulate this type of behavior but will try anyway. They will spend millions of taxpayer dollars and loose. Perhaps these losses should be charged against their pensions. This makes them a little more involved.

    1. jimonthebeach says:

      Not only will the City of Los Angeles mandate condoms in porn production, eventually the do gooders in the California legislature will do the same thing because condom use is politically correct. That will result in another industry leaving California or simply going underground. How many industries can California afford to lose? I think the state in nearly bankrupt and in danger of downgrading it’s credit rating.

  5. Sage Advice says:

    So, will they next pass a law making EVERYONE in LA, whether in a film or not wear a condom? They are over-reaching their authority and they know it; it’s a feel good PR silly law where the local ordinance has no power over state pre-emption.

    In any case, if a film is being done in a bedroom, as most pornos are made of interior shots (no pun intended), how can you be sure they are in LA or in Pasadena? Or Arizona for that matter? Enforcement will NOT happen; do you seriously think police or investigators, or even CA State Labor Board investigators will take this seriously with all of the real and rampant fraud and labor infractions going on in California. And most of the time, porn productions aren’t even applying for film permits or getting insurance because they are filming in private locations – so there will be no way to track – and you expect them to follow this? What a joke. What a waste of taxpayer’s money at a crucial time where they MUST avoid waste like this.

    1. Alfred Hussein Neuman says:

      The Council should have dropped this, but the PC pressure was too great. The AIDS activists are too powerful. “Ordinance supporters say the measure is needed to prevent the spread of HIV” . They are worried about a couple of thousand actors having unprotected sex in a controlled environment, while over 75,000 AIDS and HIV+ in LA can roam about doing as they please.

      I don’t to stigmatize AIDS and HIV+ people, but that’s where the real risk exists. Focus your energies there. The PORN business will leave, and the number of HIV cases will not decrease.

  6. W.P. KOCH says:

    Not practical to enforce. Council needs to mind its own business.

  7. Orgone says:

    This is about as effective a law as the ones that say smoking pot is illegal.
    What a waste of elected official’s time!~

    1. tax says:

      or abortion clinics.

  8. Midge Martin says:

    Meanwhile back at Reality Ranch … 4 illegal wars rage on, the dollar is about to vanish as the world reserve currency, the real unemployment rate is over 22%, the price of goods is skyrocketing, the value of homes is dropping and as the 4th year of the depression carries on … this is what you are given as news.

      Feel free to move.

      1. xmXxm says:

        Feel free to go have carnal relations with yourself.

      2. Evan says:

        That is what i am doing. I’m going to teach English overseas for a few years, while all this sorts out. There isn’t any money to be made these days it seems

    2. muneshadowe says:

      You had me going pretty good till I seen the link….

    3. nheckt says:

      4 illegal wars huh? Last I saw, everything was authorized but the action against Lybia. Looks like you need to vote Republican next time.

      1. Dr. Haag says:

        Looks as you know nothing about the world, history or the current seen and unseen wars.


        But hey, post away as the fricking low grade moron that your are and will continue to be.

      2. Free Willy says:

        The Ron Paulites seem to forget that although their hero did vote against it, Congress did in fact vote to allow Pres Bush to use force against Iraq in 2002. Dr. Paul was also among those voting to authorize the use of force in Afghanistan. Now Lybia is a different story…but they will have to take that up with Pres Zero who acted without congressional approval.

  9. dAVE wADSWORTH says:


    1. 53Percent says:

      If one listens VERY carefully…one can almost hear the sounds of calls being

      made to the moving companies…LA to LV, boys…load up the vans !

  10. bs detector says:

    Condoms are still legal???

  11. charlietexas says:

    Are any of the LA council having sex with Porn actors? Do they think that porn actors engage with just anyone that will bend over? Is there an ordinance on the books that would make it mandatory for gay men to wear a condom? This is silly. No wonder so many people are moving away…..what will be left?

    1. Aztexas says:

      Only the “left” will be left

  12. stoptouchingthatmabel says:

    I’ll bet you some of the politicians have investments in condom companies.

    1. Crack Ho says:

      It’s the AIDS activists who pushed this.

  13. stoptouchingthatmabel says:

    So when we get scr ewed by the politicians they have to wear a con dom as well?

  14. LEL says:

    So this is a good thing in that new jobs will be created. Official State position of Porn Star Condon Inspector. I expect most eagar application for the position will come from San Francisco no doubt.

  15. t-bone51 says:

    Obviously the L.A. City Council watches too much s m u t and all at the taxpayer’s expense.

  16. Mike says:

    Waste of time, they need to figure out the budget rather than waste time on condom laws. Will not affect porn movies one bit. They just won’t be filmed in L.A. These are the only type of idiotic laws they can pass because they can’t solve real problems.

  17. anonymous says:

    damn, no more cream pie videos 🙁

  18. Zeno546 says:

    Why stop with porn actors? Be Big Brother

  19. BL says:

    And yet another reason I dont live anywhere near LA or California. Thank God.

  20. Dantes says:

    I guess there will be a new city which will become the centerpiece of the porn industry. I vote Phoenix or Las Vegas.

  21. IGetItAlready says:

    For the love of all things disgusting already!
    You mean this was NOT a law prior to now?

  22. Brian Edwards says:

    Nancy, you had better run and duck for cover. …we’re going after liberals and that includes you…
    For example, in 2004, about a dozen porn stars in your home state of california, industry died from AIDS because porn actors were not required to wear condoms…pelosi , boxer, feinstein gave the california porn industry a free pass and continued the no-condom policy despite protests from AIDS organizations, the state health department and Cal/OSHA
    The mandatory condum use for california porn actors initiative argues that the adult entertainment industry should have to comply with the same laws as any other private employer in California. Just as construction workers are required to wear hard hats on site, porn stars should have to wear rubbers on set. Cal/OSHA even mandates that porn bosses provide employees exposed to blood-borne pathogens (in seminal and vaginal fluids) with dental dams, gloves, and eye protection.
    Despite the deaths, despite the opposition from many state and private organizations, pelosi, boxer and feinstein voted thumbs down on condom use in the porn industry.
    Pelosi, boxer, and feinstein sided with the porn industry that make the following claims:
    “This all raises the question: if condoms are enough to drive viewers away, who’s going to pay money to watch people go at it while looking like CDC agents?”
    “AHF’s initiative could be the final coffin nail for a dying industry that can’t compete with bareback European porn and free content streamed on sites like PornHub, YouPorn, and Hamster. At the very least, the measure would chase Hollywood’s porn stars out of California. “Then the state loses a lot of tax money,” says Jeremy. “Our business pays a good share of taxes.”
    “Many people in the adult entertainment industry argued that mandatory condom use would destroy the fantasy associated with pornography.”
    “Nina Hartley, a former porn actress, argued at Tuesday’s meeting that condoms are uncomfortable and the industry already did a good job of regulating the potential spread of disease, according to the Los Angeles Times. And because porn actors are expected to have sex for 30- to 60-minute intervals, they could be susceptible to chafing and open wounds from condoms, which could, in turn, cause more problems in transmitting diseases, she said.”
    But Derrick Burts, a 25-year-old former porn star who contracted HIV and several other STDs within five months of joining the industry, argued for the new regulations.
    Nancy, we’re gonna throw mud at you and your friend ovomit that you cannot even imagine.
    Note: the california porn industry and hollywood are owned and controlled by jews…the very same religion as feinstein and boxer and possibly pelosi – not that I’m implying anything.

    1. Jole says:

      Hey Brian, did you know that there is a difference between religious and ethnic Jews? Did you know that it doesn’t matter what religious or ethnic group controls porn, because it is still awesome?

    2. David says:

      I think construction workers should wear condoms and porn stars should wear hardhats.

    3. Mark says:


      Nothing is off limits to government according to your thinking. It’s people like you that have destroyed this nation. The road to hell is paved with good intentions and you’re shoveling out the asphalt as fast as you can.

  23. alex epperson says:

    Do they have to where it all the way through their happy ending? Or what?Can they have a happy ending without it?

  24. bungmeister says:

    Creampie Cathy will now be in Orange County on her next worldwide tour. 4,000 money shots and still clean as a whistle 😉

  25. petevino says:

    Imbeciles. The city is staggering financially, and this is what the council spends its time on? And guess what. This law will drive the porn movie industry out of the city to greener, so to speak, pastures. Idiots!

  26. BC says:

    LOL – you just can’t make this stuff up. I wonder how many perverts will line up for the enforcement job…

  27. alex epperson says:

    Please vote for republicans so we can get more of this idiocy. Our great president, 4th best all time, would never support this kind of law. Vote D always!
    Our economy has been turned around from Bush Cliff for the past 15 months, albeit incrementally.

    1. GetRealAlex says:

      If its a stupid regulation. 9 times out of 10, its a D proposing it. Their basic theory is that everyone is so stupid, they have to manage your life for you.

      Considering the fact that you actually think Republicans are any force whatsoever on the LA City Council….proves they may have a point in your case. If you want more of government deciding to run your life, keep voting D

    2. Frank says:

      LA, is far and away a DEMOCRAT stronghold, dude. It has been for a decade or two at least! Get a grip on reality, Alex…..seriously.

      Making stuff up doesn’t make it magically true.

    3. Frank says:

      Oh, and Alex, while I’m at it, you state that “our great president, 4th best all time, would never support this kind of law.”

      You’re right, he’s busy supporting even WORSE laws like the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). You know what that is? Look it up.

      I’ll summarize……it’s a law that allows the government to arrest you, without charge, and detain you indefinitely without trial just because it feels you are a “threat” based on whatever they define as a threat. Sounds pretty cool, huh?

      Feel that? That’s your “great President” statement falling apart.

      Here’s a statement, coming from an Independent who’s fed up with both parties and isn’t stuck in the Dem. vs. Rep paradigm in which you find yourself.
      Here it comes….

      Obama is the worst President in the history of this nation.

      And I’ll add that W. Bush is #2 worst and Carter is #3.

      Peace….and seriously, stop supporting the parties unless you want more and more of the same. 😉

      1. Alex Epperson says:

        Frank, you make me laugh! Look at the record of where we were after Bush and where we are now! Steady growth. We veered away from the cliff and are back on track to greatness. Grow a spine Frank. Being “independent” is a weenies way of trying to say you are wiser than everyone else but cannot grapple with the truths in life. Voting D ensures the path we are on now. Open your eyes. I bet not all that much has changed for you personally since big O grabbed the wheel. Watch Rachel Maddow more and Fox News less!

    4. Mark says:

      LA and California have been in a democrat stranglehold for years. The Republicans offer the only hope of salvaging the state, actually.

  28. Y_arth says:

    The Los Angeles City Council is comprised of inbred buffoons who play banjo duets high in the trees every night, imho!!!!!

  29. Bukkiah Golden says:

    Breaking News, Orange County California the Newest Porn Hub!

    LA is so arrogant. As if porn cannot be made somewhere else, and so close its just economic suicide. This is too close the “money shot” to not be viewed in economic terms by the industry.

  30. Joey says:

    The same assembly of morons that launched the political career of Maxine Waters. Whaddaya expect?

  31. Fred Santers says:

    A bunch of d**ks enacting a condom law. Now that’s irony….

  32. tax says:

    Hey porn industry. Why not move to Seattle? We have plenty of freaks and geeks for ya. Where is the ACLU on this? The porn industry not liberal enough for them? This law is a violation of the “ACTORS” constitutional rights. If they want to chance an STD that should be their right. They should also be made accountable if they are infected. They pay for all of the medical to treat their STD. Next thing you know some right wing extremists will think it is OK to legislate that everyone has to wear a condom during sex. Then we end up like “Demolition Man” where we don even get to touch for sex.

    I do not care about the industry, but I do not believe the government should be intruding in our lives like this.

    1. shabe says:

      hey tax, don’t confuse the right with the left. It is the LEFT that feels government is the answer. You may be closer to the right than you realize.

  33. Ben Dover says:

    Why don’t they require condoms in the ghetto areas too? Because they have no authority to do so and they couldn’t enforce it anyway. And how exactly are they going to know where an adult film is shot. They’ll still shoot it in the Valley and just say it was shot in Vegas.. What an unbelievable waste of time.

  34. broiled says:

    last thing I want to see when imagining a girl i’ll never be with is a dude wearing a condom… crips. idiots.

  35. Joe Doakes says:

    So correct me if I’m wrong out there . . . has LA banned the plastic bag but required the condom? Isn’t that a little hypocritical? I can’t protect my groceries but you have to wear protection . . .

  36. nosmo king says:

    whats the chances of a law requiring penn, glover,baldwin and other hollywood types to wear condoms 24/7 so the can’t reproduce.

  37. Pope John VI says:

    The catholic church does not allow the use of condoms. If the pornstar is catholic he can sue the state for denying his religious right.

    1. good charlot says:

      I don’t think that’s true. But promiscuity’s a problem.

  38. Rua Ceilingfan says:

    if america didn’t have a law that mandates free medical treatment (emergency room etc…) especially for hiv aids etc… this would be a non issue, as 99.999% of adults know the risks involved. when gov’t orders taxpayers to fund medical, it then feels it has the right to order you to prevent illness. and gov’t has now done so. next will be prohibitions on mcdonalds, obesity, etc… all because the people allowed free medical care.

  39. stacie says:

    I might actually enjoy porn now…..

  40. Joe bob says:

    I’m really curious why California is trying so hard to be the national prison zone like in the movies. That place is really a joke now I moved and lasted 6 months then ran like hell, L.A. sucks.

  41. Captain Crunch says:

    No more creampies I guess

  42. Dano says:

    LA county or the City of Los Angele?. If it is the county then it will just move to the OC or somewhere nearby. If it’s just the city of LA, then it is kind of pointless, since you could move studios to a different city with a friendlier council . If the goal is to make this business relocate then they will succeed. However, they will probably lose out on revenue which is probably needed. By the way, who really cares, and why?

  43. Dano says:

    Everybody but “Big Brother” has to wrap it up.

  44. joe says:

    well that should end the industry in LA.. wonder where they will go? probably somewhere there is absolutely no regulation at all.. stupid people of California strike again

  45. Johnny Holmes says:

    This is practically unamerican and kills the bare back and cream pie genres. Civilian amateur sexual escapades almost always involves the use of a rain coat over your Johnson. If you wanted to have bareback sex you could only do it in your head with the assist of the aforementioned genre, some tissues and perhaps some lotion.

    Another stunning example of good paying American jobs that will probably be shipped overseas.

  46. Alex says:

    Great – what is this – 25 years too late?

  47. ManOfTheInBetween says:

    Doesn’t go far enough! Ban pornography at the federal level all together!

    1. ron says:

      yeah that will work LOL hahahahahahahaha

    2. TL says:

      So you’d rather a government telling you how to have sex? You decide to take pictures or videos of you having sex and you are ok with a government telling you should never be allowed to do so? That is not a free society

  48. ron says:

    they will just move filming of of L.A. … no problem

  49. Justin says:

    Love Cali!! The more laws they pass and more money the tax the people the better. Heck I even write politicians letters to suggest other laws and ideas of generating revenue on the backs of the people. And these guys love the ideas. Keep’em coming!

  50. TL says:

    Our government now legislating how we should have sex and film it – great … do they pick our partners too? Keep the government out of our business, If these porn stars contract a disease it is because of their PERSONAL CHOICE not to use protection. We don’t need elected officials to tell anyone how to have sex. Give me a break

  51. mamawati says:

    Aw, come on….

  52. BigBoa says:

    Come on. How can you people not see the REAL purpose of this? NOW, the “government officials” behind all this will have to sit at their computers, watching porn all day, on YOUR dime, because they’ll have to “monitor” all of it to see if they can find any evidence of law violation. Clues as to whether it was perhaps filmed in the “affected” zone, so to speak. Yep, all porn, all the time. And the taxpayers footing the bill…….

    1. John says:

      The Bible says a lot of things. “Judge not lest ye be judged.” and “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” both come to mind.

      Not to mention that not all of us are Christians and there is still a separation of church and state in this country.

  54. Jimmy says:

    It shouldn’t be a problem to enforce since the city workers probably watch porn all day anyway.

  55. Rich Lehmann says:

    Another industry driven out of California by politicians.

  56. Karl Stalin says:

    So the government is going to tell the pron stars how to fu(k? They should know.

  57. Steve says:

    This law sucks. I get sick are tired of seeing the same porn chick twice. I’d much rather have some turnover due to HIV or whatever. Let these people do what they want. Nobody care what happens to them. We seriously just want a constant turnover of hot chicks.

  58. robertg says:

    So are the lawmakers going to be required to wear condoms when they do it to the taxpayer again and again and again……

  59. Tom Davidson says:

    The pornography industry is larger than the revenues of the top technology companies combined: Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo!, Apple, Netflix and EarthLink.
    The US spends $13 billion a year on porn – the world spends $100 billion a year.
    They don’t need to operate in California.
    If California doesn’t want that business one way to get rid of it is to over-regulate to the point of creating disincentives.

  60. tdrag says:

    Boy, things must REALLY be good in LA. No crime, no poverty, no illegals. Now we’re getting down to solving some real problems!

  61. Hercules says:

    I thought it was only the religious right that wanted to get into other peoples bedrooms. Oh, I forgot, it’s only to protect them. Get government out of our lives!

  62. anthony mck says:

    time to invest in condom stock in LA

  63. John says:

    Looks like no more creampie videos from L.A.

  64. Mike Hunt says:

    I may be out of a job now. Please repeal this atrocity of law. I beg of you.

    1. alex epperson says:

      LoL. MikeHunt – Porky’s movie. LOL.

  65. Manny says:

    Are they going to watch each porn movie to make sure there aren’t any law breakers?


  66. MAJack says:

    What a rediculous use of government time, no wonder California is foundering on the rocks. What are they going to do, arrest those who violate the order? The nanny state live in California, glad I don’t live there.

  67. Greg says:

    Why don’t they pass an ordinance that requires protesters to pay for and obtain permits, provide a clean and sanitary environment while protesting, and re-pay the City for any damages?

  68. Spanky says:

    So do i have to wear a condom when I wack off now?

  69. D. Tales says:

    Follow the money trail — which will undoubtedly ‘flow’ back to the condom manufacturers’ parent companies.

  70. Paul Kotik says:

    Dear LA Porn Industry:

    Welcome to South Florida. Please take off your rubbers before coming inside.

    1. Frank King says:

      I just posted the same comment without reading yours! Great minds think alike

  71. Dave says:

    Where are the Pro-choicers in all this, “it’s my body, i’ll do to it what ever I please, regardless of who it may effect”

  72. Steve says:

    How dumb is this California government it’s like they hate having businesses in California first Amazon now the porn industry. How do you expect to raise taxes if you keep making “harder” for businesses to stay in business. The pron industry is going to Las Vegas.

  73. BlownfuelCoupe says:

    Time for the Rubber Match.

  74. Ted says:

    Does this effective outlaw creampies ? Bummer if true.

  75. udo says:

    “OK, let me pull this off for the money shot….1,2,3….wait, it’s really slick now..oh, oh oh….arrrghgghhhh…..too late”.

    That’s a money shot lost and that means lost jobs!

  76. Ron Paul says:

    So they admit sex is actually taking place but wait isn’t that prostitution?

  77. H.T. Duck says:

    This makes me wonder how the sales tax will be calculated
    for condoms purchsed in CA (soon to be all USA)?.
    That’s right folks! Yer staring right at a SEX tax.
    Think about it……..They’ve taxed everything else you could possibly imagine.

  78. H.T. Duck says:

    Can you imagine how long the line would be to apply for an “inspectors” job?.

  79. The Libertarian says:

    As if anyone would conduct business in Loas Angeles.

    Or California for that matter.

  80. Frank King says:

    Welcome to Miami Porn Stars!

  81. Joe says:

    Maybe condoms should be mandated for the politicians.

  82. 1-800-give-me-stds says:

    first the port industry…next, YOUR bedroom!

  83. Mike Jones says:

    The issue of the L.A. city council requiring condom use in adult entertainment is not about the safety of the performers, the producers use STD battery tests to insure that, the issue is the censorship of the images that the industry produces. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation wants to promote safe sex practices and censoring what they deem as unsafe sex from visual media is part of that effort.
    The reality is that because of the industries rigorous testing procedures, it really is safe sex. It’s safer even than a monogamous relationship actually, because every performer is tested before preforming whereas a spouse might be cheating on you without your knowledge and never get tested.
    Furthermore I would go on to point out that the likelihood of infection (with a proper testing regime) is relatively low, you wouldn’t ban stunts from movies because one or two stuntmen were injured over the course of a few years would you? Did anyone propose banning guns from movies when Brandon Lee got accidentally shot?
    Yet despite the fact that HIV is even now treatable and not fatal (indeed, those infected have to take medication and are limited in their reproduction, it is little more than a minor disability), you propose that the rare possibility of an accident is cause to impose visual censorship on the entire industry?
    This entire issue has been trumped up by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a lobby group who’s seeing the waning of the significance of their cause and is therefore drumming up publicity in the hopes of spurring corporate and private donation so that they can prolong their proverbial gravy train. Why else would they choose to trumpet the issue now, after HIV has been treatable and manageable for years? Clearly this is an issue of this group seeking donations and exploiting the corruption of the L.A. city council to drum up publicity.
    This is nothing more or less than an attempt to censor visual media in the movie capital of the world. If they censor adult entertainment in the name of “public health” today, why not censor violence in movies tomorrow, or how about ideas that aren’t conducive to the public wellbeing such as certain lyrics in rap music? If one special interest group can censor one form of creative expression, why not others?
    This is a direct assault on free speech and free expression, nothing more and nothing less and it is not the end. You don’t take away people’s rights with one stroke or there’ll be public outcry, you do it incrementally in little baby steps and that’s what this is, a step toward censorship.
    If they want their industry to survive the porn producers should found a superPAC right now and start fighting for the recall of every city council member who voted for this ban, and anyone who supports freedom of artistic expression should support them.

    countrys going in the toilet and this is what they legislate,,,cailf is a lost sewer..

  85. Rez Ipza Liquor-KooL AID says:

    This is not a privacy issue, sorry buddy. — Nothing to do with legislation or any so-called right to have sex, bottom line. First Amendment ain’t gonna help either — this is the commercial sex industry, it is highly regulated. This is not the non-commercial sex you have with you partner for non-meritricious motives.

    Issue: Do municipalities (i.e., States) have the power to enforce a regulation requiring porn star condom use in the commercial sex industry?

    Rule: Under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, States can make laws that deal with the health, safety, welfare, and morals of its citizens. If a regulation or policy is rationally-related to the health,

    Brief Analysis: Consenting adults have a right to have consentual sex with other adults. The government has no business forcing people to wear condoms when they have sex. After all, you have a right to express yourself through sex, no? This is probably true, but as it relates to the provision requiring condom use in the porn industry, the argument will fail because it has nothing to do with your choice to have sex but the MANNER in with you have sex.

    Moreover, although most of you would assert that the government has no right to force you to wear condoms in your bedroom, this is not the case before us, as it pertains to the adult porn industry, which by definition is an exchange of services services (i.e.,entertainment) for financial gain.

    States and municipalities have the right to regulate the commercial sex industry (i.e., porn industry or porn filming) because it is rationally related to a legitimate governmental interest. Protecting the health and safety of the porn star artists and gaurding against rampant spread of hiv commonly and frequently obtained by actors and actresses who fail to use condoms, is a legitimate governmental interest buddy.

    Conclusion: The County of Los Angeles (i.e., governmental actor) can require condom use for those performing sex acts, during the filming of adult porn.

    Who wears the condom, the man or the woman? Possible 14th Amendment concern. Gender discrimination?
