So much for not allowing the government into the bedroom.
Or film studio.

Could you imagine being hired as the guy who has to enforce this?

Luckily it is cold and wet here in Oregon most of the year, so I doubt we will be on their short list!

Next time try posting even some of the article. And your comments belong in the “comments” area.

I wonder what’s going to happen when CGI takes over pr0n as it is trying to do with mainstream movies.

I heard that since, with cartoons and CGI, no real people are used in the creation of these films, that child pr0n laws do not apply as currently written. That is actually quite scary.

I'm gazing into my crystal ball, and I see the growth of a new industry in Nevada ...

Unless production values have changed over the last 10 years, the adult film industry is the very model of "highly mobile".

And of course, the politically incorrect fact we can't mention is that virtually all of the HIV scares in the adult film industry in the last several years (at least ones that have made the news) have stemmed from male performers who were also involved in homosexual sex. But musn't mention that ...

It would be easy. You can see in the videos if the law is being obeyed. If it's not, the name of the production company is on the video.

This being California, I'm sure they'll lay off some more cops and firefighters and close some more public libraries to come up with the funding to hire condom inspectors.

Why is that scary? What is wrong with you?

Clinton's Communications Decency Act tried to do just that and was shot down by a unanimous Supreme Court.

With no real people involved, you're advocating absolute control over individual's freedom of expression.

—Why is that scary? What is wrong with you? —

I don’t know that anything is wrong with me, beyond the normal stuff (the doctor says I may get out in a few months) Regarding the scary part:

It means that child pornographers can profit, and are therefor incented, by making CGI child pr0n. Sure, maybe no children are exploited in the actual making of the film, but unless you are one of those who advocates that pr0n “releases” the desires that would otherwise well up to cause you to attack real people, it means those who purchase and download this stuff will get the same dosage of the material they get with the “real” and illegal stuff.

And the fact that it is made illegal by the fact that real children are used currently is only part of why it was made illegal, but enough to nip it in the bud. The advent of CGI bypasses the laws and allows the product to be freely sold.

And it is believed by many that pr0n only increases the problem for its customers.

That’s why it’s “scary”.

"The only thing that the city could potentially achieve is losing some film permit money and driving some productions away, but you can't actually compel an industry to create a product that the market doesn't want," said Christian Mann, general manager of Evil Angel, another of the industry's largest production companies.

************************************
I have to disagree .. they do protect but the protection is imperfect and highly dependant on how they’re used. When you’re talking about the number of partners those in the “industry” have and the high incidence of herpes and chlymidia combined with the male “performers” often acting in gay and straight roles I’d triple wrap it if I was involved.
