The Porn Industry Might Leave L.A. If Condoms Become Mandatory

Porn Condomz

The porn industry is thinking about leaving L.A. if condoms become mandatory, because safety sucks, that's why.

Nah, it isn't that, but the fact that they think it'll hurt their business. On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council voted 9-1 to grant final approval to an ordinance that would deny film permits to producers who do not comply with the condom requirement.

"It's going to be interesting to see how in fact they do try to enforce it and whose going to fund it and all of the time and effort they're going to spend. Ultimately I think what they will find is people will just stop shooting in the city of Los Angeles. That's a given."

Putting safety first should always be a priority, we think, and this should probably be a rule regardless of the law telling them to. Like an unspoken, "we respect the lives of our actors," type of thing.

So how WOULD this be paid for? Well, the ordinance would slap a permit fee on filmmakers, which would go to surprise inspections during shoots. On a side note, being a porn inspector would be a weird job. Porn Inspector Gadget: "Go go gadget fuzzy handcuffs!"

Anyway, a council is being set up to see how much the permit fee would be, and who would enforce it all.

Here's the thing though — it's already a law to wear condoms in the porn industry. Just nobody enforces it:

"Let's make one thing clear: Condom use on adult film sets is and has been the law in California under blood borne pathogens regulations. It is just a law that has not been uniformly enforced or followed. This film permit ordinance that the City Council approved today provides another enforcement mechanism to make sure that adult film producers are complying with existing California law."

People against the idea usually state the fact that the industry polices itself — working actors have to be tested for STDs every 30 days.

Hmmm! Are U for or against this??
