Skip to comments.Bill requiring porn stars to wear condoms and get regularly tested for AIDS passes California's
Posted on 05/28/2014 5:43:36 AM PDT by C19fan
Porn performers in California must wear condoms during film shoots and their employers must provide regular testing under a bill that passed the state Assembly on Tuesday. The bill, AB1576 by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, D-Compton, advanced to the Senate on a 41-12 vote, the minimum number of votes needed. The bill follows a similar mandate in Los Angeles County, approved by voters in 2012. Hall said his bill is a workplace-safety measure to curb the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, citing recent industry-imposed moratoriums on adult film shoots after actors were diagnosed.

Relocation to Las Vegas is fairly easy. I’m sure Harry Reid will welcome such new constituents.
True, they’ll just shoot in a different location! w/sarc
So were are the “NOW” types screaming stay out of my womb, my body, my choice.......................(is a sarcasm tag really needed here)
“Relocation to Las Vegas is fairly easy....”
Or anywhere else. Those bunny wabbits never learn......
And people say the California legislature can’t address the real problems facing the state!
And CaliPornia “wonders” WHY DECENT, HARDWORKING and NORMAL PEOPLE BLANKING HATE THAT “STATE”!
The fools don’t realize that digital cameras have become ubiquitous, there is zero reason for any porn production to remain in California. Importantly, the businesses themselves can remain in California, intertwined as they are with the regular film industry. Just the photography needs to be elsewhere.
I almost think they should be tatooed...kinda like the "A" thing.
More laws to drive jobs out of California. The democRats have never seen a problem that can't be solved by more laws or more spending.
At least they don’t need protective eye ware ...
With all the free stuff on the internet ,commercial porn is a contracting industry. Still leave it to government interference to destroy ant commercial enterprise. The irony is that if these regulations were proposed by Republicans, liberal Democrat judges would void them as an assault on “free speech” and censorship.
I don't think so. Sex for money is prostitution and illegal in every state except California and New Hampshire. Sex for money while making a film is specifically exempted in those two states.
New Hampshire? LOL! Damned if I know what they were thinking.
“Bill requiring porn stars to wear condoms and get regularly tested for AIDS...”
It’s legal in New Hampshire? Are you sure you didn’t mean Nevada?
Actually, the vast majority of the porn industry has already moved to Eastern Europe, production and labor costs are much cheaper, and virtually no regulation exists.
How is the difference between a porn “star” and a porn non-star determined. It’s important if only porn “stars” have to wear a condom.
This is a workplace problem. Shouldn’t OSHA be doing inspections? /S
I’ll bet that most of the AIDS cases were gay men, and of the few women, all received unprotected anal sex (just like gay men!) and most also did drugs.
The fact that most female porn stars have prodigious unprotected sex with men who have lots of unprotected sex tells us all we need to know about the lack of AIDS risk among heterosexuals.
I knew some people in the industry and most attractive porn actresses become well known “stars” for the following reasons:
-There are very few attractive women (and even fewer men) who can do that type of work and genuinely look like they are enjoying it (a handful actually do). One 30-minute scene takes an entire day to film and they have to look good and happy for most of it.
-Even the largest porn studios have maybe 5-10 actresses at one time that they continuously rotate.
-Men who are into porn get to know this group of girls VERY well. Some watch porn for entire days since puberty.
-Far more men (and even more women) watch and pay for porn than admit it. Porn stars are at least as popular as top Hollywood stars but we don’t talk about them in public.
-Attractiveness declines with age and pregnancy so they have a very short career. About half also leave on their own due to pressure from friends/family/lovers but that stigma is going away.
(and yes, I consider them actresses and not prostitutes. They are paid to act out a scene on film and there is no actual sexual pleasure for any of the actors. Prostitutes are paid for personal sexual pleasure.)
Good idea. Now they should move on to politicians who screw the taxpayers.
How about they pass a law outlawing stupidity? That would work just as well

I haven’t watched or looked at any porn since my early teen years. I sort of view it as psychological junk food for the weak minded. Not that I DON’T enjoy such things, but I prefer to be a live participant, and with the same person. :p
I don’t view porn, or even prostitution any differently than I do a couple of boxers or football players beating one another to a pulp, while being paid well to do it.
LOL...I was about to post the same thing...
Quite frankly I'm sort of surprised they have not...

Why not order them to keep their clothes on too while they’re at it?
Craigslist gigs for my state and neighboring ones have over half for female adult gigs.
So, if a porn actor gives someone AIDS, that’s bad. But, if a male homosexual gives someone AIDS, that’s love?
And the porn biz packs up and moves to Nevada.
An idiot gerbilist writing an article on the bill which represents what the bill achieves to the same degree that a James Bond movie depicts and actual Ian Fleming novel.
A lot of porn is shot in Florida, Colorado, and Ohio.
California, not ONE industry they aren’t willing to screw over.
A funny, but valid point! Did Cali-pornia address this in the bill? There are many ways to get infected.
I suspect Florida will quickly overtake CA then. That kind of business is booming here.
"To solve this problem, one studio has turned to airbrushing and CGI to appease both the law, and the customers, by digitally removing the condoms in post-production."
“Relocation to Las Vegas is fairly easy. Im sure Harry Reid will welcome such new constituents.”
I wrote Reid’s bio. Some of his first bribes came from pimp Joe Conforte at Mustang ranch. Reid’s good friends Oscar Goodman, Jay Brown and Dominic Gentile are all mafia porn lawyers.
I will have lots more details on the porn connection in my new updates, about three weeks.
Yup, the porn industry will just move to a different state. Californians are a pretty stupid lot.

Jobs for CGI artists in the making. The most I need is to after effects enough to remove sensor grit and splotches that only magically appear on the shots that I would really like involving any kind of sky or white in color.
Neutral density filters and routine cleaning are standard things with me.
Same here... I shoot with full-frame cameras...big sensors.
Sensors are dust magnets, a fact of life. Stills are easy enough to fix. I am a poor 60 and hopefully not too far off, 70d person. Video is what I primarily use DSLRs for. The 60 has some age and hours on it but is a workhorse.
I’m looking into 4k video but need to upgrade the PC to handle it. Studio 17 with full HD is a small hog.
Haven’t done much video at all yet, but if my daughter gives us some grand-kids then I’ll probably be doing lots of video shooting.
I spent enough years in public TV land. Most of what I do goes to stock agencies. I used to make some decent side money plus I enjoyed it. HD isn’t the apparent big selling format but 4k is. An entry level camcorder that should meet specs is around 1800 or so last I checked.
I would hate to give up using my 100 mm macro and the 50 prime that I have come to enjoy using.
Porn ‘stars’- filth disgusting people!
Can we now pass a bill requiring drug tests and mandatory periodic psych evaluations for the pols in Sacramento?
