I would say that anyone who opposes this measure is thinking with his other head.

Still don't get it. So California wants to require porn actors to wear condoms while filming porn? Film in Nevada. Problem solved.

Not CA - Los Angeles County. So most likely Ventura County since its just a 30 minute shot up the 101. (Unless they passed a measure? Can't recall. Don't particularly care).

if they simply legalized prostitution, none of us would need porn. but if that happened people would stop having babies and the world would end

I'm surprised more people don't have issue with having their heads wrapped around this. Though it does seem to be giving a backhanded salute. Will stars get the sack if they don't perform correctly?

Yikes. Porn stars have sure gotten... less attractive.
 
2012-10-22 12:26:40 PM
The intention is all good and fine, but the practical result if this passes will be economic loss in LA County and economic gain somewhere else. It's just that simple. Unless the Feds get involved and invoke similar regulations nationwide (OSHA type stuff), this initiative is completely pointless. OSHA getting involved in this issue will not be happening any time soon.

I think you're not making the right choices, so I'm going to manipulate the law to remove your ability to follow any course of action other than course I've chosen for myself.

It's for your own good, so I'm right.

You're welcome.

The porn industry has raised $111,375 for its "No on Government Waste Committee." Major funding has come from four porn producers: $75,000 from Manwin, a global adult entertainment company headquartered in Luxembourg and parent of Pornhub and Youporn, and $10,000 each from Vivid Entertainment of Los Angeles; Larry Flynt's Flynt Management Group of Beverly Hills; and PHE Inc. of North Carolina, which runs Adam & Eve, a leading erotic mail-order company and video production firm.

well if these companies have so much money to spend opposing worker safety for the actors who are risking their lives so they can turn a profit, i guess they don't need my money or my page views
 
2012-10-22 12:31:06 PM
Since porn stars are abnormaly large their condoms should be hand tailored for a correct fit.
I hate seeing ten inches covered by only 6 inches of protection.I worry about the poor girl catching some hidious disease,thus ruining my viewing pleasure.

This is an issue for OSHA, they love to regulate workplace safety. Idiots in California are voting themselves into bankruptcy through these stupid propositions. Larry Flint would simply move to another location.
 
2012-10-22 12:35:29 PM
As mentioned up thread the actors will just hop on the next bang bus outta town into a different county and set up shop there instead. Sure there might be a flaccid stream of of porn for a month or so as they set up in new digs but then the gangbang train will start back up and some other county will reap the benefits.

I agree. Yes, it would cut down on STDs a bit... but so would requiring everyone (not trying to conceive) to wear one, which is an absurd overstep. This is exactly the same overstep, that just doesn't go as far.

They cite the requirement to wear hard-hats as analogous. I highly doubt that is required by law. It's just a major liability issue. If it is in the law at all, I'd wager it only applies to government workers.

How do they plan to enforce this? One scenario:

"Everybody stay right where you are, this is a raid!"
"Who are you people?"
"Health Department, miss. We have reason to believe there are health and safety violations being committed on this set"
"Like what?"
"Not using condoms."
"And?"
"Well, that bra looks a bit tight, let me undo that for you..."

James Lee, spokesman for Measure B's opponents, said ....( some stuff about how the porn industry loses money when condoms are used), then he said that when he lets his sons play Little League, he knows that they're at risk of being injured. then this gem
"I don't see that as a justification to outlaw Little League," he said. "The irony is that our industry is actually safer than Little League baseball." 

Okay, I'll admit to being a puritan, but it's just plane wrong to equate Little League baseball to Pronograffy.

Is this HIV/AIDS issue unique to U.S. produced porn? It seems to me there is more voluntary condom use in U.S. porn than there is in European or Japanese productions. Also, the Japanese really go crazy with the creampies, you would think there would be similar if not worse infection rates overseas. If there isn't what are they doing differently?

There's a huge difference between OSHA requiring someone to wear a hardhat and goggles when doing construction work professionally and a government inspector popping into your garage on the weekend to make sure you're wearing proper safety equipment. One is a proper use of government power to regulate commerce. The other, not so much. Likewise with professional performers.

Corporations have shown over and over they have no regard for the safety of their workers, and one of the government's most essential functions is to protect them.

OSHA provides information, training and assistance to workers and employers. Workers may file a complaint to have OSHA inspect their workplace if they believe that their employer is not following OSHA standards or that there are serious hazards. This is a job for OSHA, I am sure they would be more than willing to help.

Why does California even have a state legislature? Seems every issue ultimately winds up on a ballot for a referendum vote anyway...
 
2012-10-22 12:58:18 PM
The hard-hat analogy is not that good, IMO. Hard hats on a construction site might prevent minor head injuries, but it is all the other safety measures that really prevent problems.

I think the pron industry needs to restructure their process for contracts and when actors are allowed to film. Since a lot of these folks do 'outside work', whether it is for another company outside the US, or escorting or things like that, I feel that is where a lot of the disease issues comes from. So setup the contracts so that an actor is under contract to film for a certain time, then have a time to be able to do outside work. And when they come back from the outside work, they get tested and have to wait for those results before they are allowed to start filming again.
