Safety first!

Next fall Californians will finally vote on whether or not actors will be required to wear condoms in pornography movies!

The secretary of state's office made the announcement Wednesday after supporters gained the 366,000 signatures they needed in order for the initiative to be voted on.

If passed, the measure would require actors to wear condoms while filming sex scenes in adult films and would make the producers of the movies pay for regular vaccinations as well testing and medical exams for sexually transmitted diseases.

As it is, actors are tested for diseases every 14 days.

This piece of legislation could be pretty significant as the greater Los Angeles area is widely considered to be the porn capital of the world for the amount of films that are produced there on a yearly basis. Trust us, it's A LOT of porn!

Though this measure won't be decided until next year, there are already people on both sides of the issue speaking out.

Michael Weinstein, the President of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation is hoping the law passes and said:

"The No. 1 way that young people learn about sex in this day and age is pornography on the Internet. In porn, real people are having real sex. They're transmitting actual diseases, and the audience knows it. It's not like a fictional Hollywood film."

Diane Duke from The Free Speech Coalition — the porn industry's trade association — is on the other side of the fence saying:

"This is an unconscionable initiative that would take a legal and safe industry and push its performers into the shadows."

The state finance department has also chimed in and said that the decision could ultimately cost the state millions of dollars annually in lost state and local tax revenue.

Weinstein, however, doesn't believe the pornography industry is likely to leave California any time soon as there aren't many other places that allow the legal production of pornography — not to mention the beautiful weather which allows them to shoot outside almost all year.
