When I'm single, I always have one handy. Experience has taught me that you just never know when the opportunity will arise. It's the same reason I keep a picnic blanket in my trunk. I'm like a sexual Boy Scout...wait, that may not be the image I want to conjure.

It really saddens me that there are people who think it's a good idea to have a law that says porn actors need to wear condoms.
 
2013-01-12 09:43:05 AM  
I guess condoms can cause a lot of discomfort for the female porn actors. Hours and hours of farking, and not farking because you're horny, but because it's your job. Hard to stay properly lubricated like that, and the condoms have more friction than bare skin. Plus the porn people do get tested for more regularly than the general population, so they're probably cleaner than the average person who farks a lot.

I used to carry a condom on a "hey, you never know" basis. As a former boss of mine used to say, "you've gotta plan for success."

Nowadays, I carry a condom as a defiant symbol that I'm not quite ready to give up on life. If I stopped carrying one now, that'd basically signify that I've pretty much abandoned all hope and am just sitting around, waiting to die.

/ Plus, if I was a cable guy making repairs for bored, well endowed suburban housewives all day, you bet your ass I'd carry condoms

How specifically is this one regulation different than any of the hundreds of others on the sex film industry? Considering how effective condoms are at preventing the spread of disease, I think this utterly ludicrous to try to blow up into some huge apocalyptic "freedom vs. commies" issue.

There are a few good reasons that Measure B was a bad idea, and they're not about freedom. Here's what Stoya has to say about it:

So, Measure B passed...
Why Measure B puts adult performers at higher risk:

tl;dr version: Porn performers already have a much lower STD rate than the general population making the addition of condoms unnecessary, and the use of condoms for extended periods can increase infection risk.

BarkingUnicorn: Doesn't this law also require "dental dams?"  I've never seen dental dam porn; at least, I don't think so.


I've only ever seen them used in independent porn with real* lesbians. It would be kind of weird to see them in the more "mainstream" porn productions, even with the law. I get a sneaking suspicion that we might see less cunnilingus in boy-girl scenes as a result.

*No fake or long nails, and one or more of the girls in each scene look kind of like a dude until they get their clothes off.

The only condoms Mrs Kim allows are the naturals. She can't stand any of the rest since she says they are very uncomfortable. And for STDs, I don't think they work that well. I'd hate to be a porn actress without buckets of lube if everyone was required to use condoms.

That, and since the bigger push for this law seems to be "If people see condom use, they will use more condoms..." is really farking stupid. Can't wait till that safety logic gets applied in other films.

All the male farkers in here complaining about not liking to wear condoms? You don't get to complain when your girlfriends decide they no longer want to take the pill. If you don't wrap it up, you have ZERO RIGHT to complain if she gets knocked up. You had your chance to help prevent it, and you chose not to.

I hate to break this news to you, but if you're having anal sex without a condom you're most definitely getting shiat/fecal matter inside your dick. Do you honestly think that shoving your cock inside an orifice whose sole purpose is pushing shiat out and none of it's going to get inside you?

If people see condom use, they will go and buy European porn.

As someone who really doesn't have a problem with condoms in my porn, that's the sad truth. However well-intentioned that might be, the fact is that it won't work. The market doesn't want condoms, so they'll shop elsewhere. Result? The industry shifts abroad.

To be honest, the whole thing reeks of people trying to get porn out of their neighbourhood and doing it indirectly (so, you don't ban porn, you just create a mountain of red tape that destroys it). So, I wish them good luck with their fight.

Shouldn't condom usage be taught by parents? If you're being taught life lessons by porn, you have already lost.

I thought about that as well, but even if your parents assume you're straight or are in denial, the same rule of "wrap that bear" still applies whether you're straight, gay, bi-, etc.

I think that once you instill the framework of good decision making processes in them, really all a parent can do is teach them about consequences and hope they don't fark up too badly.

But it's pretty asinine to think that porn is just going to be a more depraved version of Sesame Street and is going to teach them life lessons.

Area Man May Never Find Out If Condom In Wallet Is Still Good

OMAHA, NE-Donald Muller, a 33-year-old Omaha near-virgin, may never find out if the Ramses Extra Sensitive condom in his wallet is still good, it was reported Monday. "I really hope it hasn't deteriorated in the past three years," Muller said of the birth-control device, which was first inserted into his wallet in March 1996, prior to a St. Patrick's Day party that "didn't pan out." "I don't really have any particularly strong leads right now, but it'd be nice to know I was prepared just in case anything came up." Muller, who bought the condom in 1993 as part of a box of 12, said he hopes to strike up a conversation Sunday with a woman who uses the same laundromat as him.

The Plumbing Business Is Not As Glamorous As The Porn Industry Depicts

Plumbing is really a pretty good career, as careers go. The pay's decent, the work's steady, and you get the satisfaction of a job well done. As a tradesman, I really can't complain. But let me tell you, being a plumber isn't quite what those pornography people make it out to be.

I bet you think my average "service call" involves going to a nice-looking house, ringing the bell, and having the door answered by some gorgeous, well-endowed lady in her skimpy apron. You probably think she then grabs me by the tool belt and drags me into the house, where she proceeds to tell me she needs a lot of pipe laid in her kitchen, bends over the counter to show me what she means, and... whammo! Pretty soon, she's introducing me to her neighbor, Mrs. Jones, and telling her that I have just the special tool she needs to fix her own plumbing.

This is not the case.

Many apprentice plumbers naively assume that the only reason horny housewives aren't asking to see their plumber's snakes is that they have yet to achieve a Master rating in their trade. "Apprenticeship is frustrating," these greenhorns no doubt say to themselves, "but one day, when I've earned my stripes, I'll ask some busty blonde about the water in her basement, and she'll say, 'Yes, it is awfully wet down there,' and the next thing you know, it's party time!"

Now, I'm not saying this absolutely never happens. But it is, in fact, far less common than you've been led to believe. The incidents depicted in such classic pornos as Plumbin' In The Kitchen With Dinah and The Over-The-Sink-able Molly Brown are reportedly based on actual events. But they are wildly exaggerated in typical Hollywood style, presented in such a way as to make Joe Pipewrench's love life seem a lot more exciting than it actually is.

The question is: Do people watch less porn if the actors are using condoms than if they are not using condoms? That should be the only argument the industry is making. If it will affect their bottom line, so to speak, then they might have an argument, and in Hollywood, people might listen. But saying "Hey, we don't need condoms because our industry is already safe!" is lame. Safety should always be your priority anyway, and if condom use doesn't hurt your profit margin, then why are you complaining?

And if it DOES, AND if there is no impact on health, then say so. But these producers can't argue that there is no health benefit so they shouldn't have to do it. There is a known health benefit to wearing condoms during sex; so they can hardly pretend that bareback actors are "as safe" as condom-wearing actors. So they should just admit they're worried about their money. Let's be honest.

You might be surprised. And of course, she certainly will be.

(J/k, but it is only hard to pull off because of how mood killing talking about it can be. Just take a few slight liberties when things are going really well, if she likes it, congratulations. If she doesn't like it, just transition smoothly to something else. If you can react without missing a beat, the night will still be fun and you will know a bit more about her preferences. It is a hell of a lot easier to do with a steady partner, because its certainly a have to be in the mood for it kind of thing.)

Yeah its work, but its worth it.

Hmm.. as I mentioned earlier, I've not met any woman who preferred sex with a condom with respect to pleasure. Risk of pregnancy can be handled many other ways.
