LA County: Porn Safety Measure Passes

Voters passed a measure that requires adult film actors to wear condoms and create other safe-sex regulations.

Voters passed a Los Angeles County proposition Tuesday that requires porn stars to wear condoms and adhere to other safe-sex regulations.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, 55 percent of voters cast "Yes" votes on Measure B.

Measure B requires adult film actors to wear condoms and force porn shoots to submit to inspections from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health. Porn actors would also be required to take a training course on blood-borne pathogens like HIV.

have no idea why voters would vote yes on this. why care about what emplyoees are doing? it's their call.
Lisa Maiorana November 07, 2012 at 08:50 PM
Because they spread diseases to each other and to our communities. That's why.
Vito Spago November 07, 2012 at 09:52 PM
This is the dumbest prop to pass yet. They will just move the porno shoots out of the county, More jobs lost. Brilliant!
Robert Corona November 07, 2012 at 10:42 PM
And who is going to make sure they wear the condoms???? I gotta see the job description... I gotta agree with Vito.. Stupid as stupid can be! They shoot a movie next door to you and you don't even know it. Totally enforceable!
Robert Corona November 07, 2012 at 10:42 PM
Oops! meant NOT enforceable... got all excited here!

again, why should i care if they spread disease to each other. gov't needs to butt out..hehehe. we spread disease to each other by coughing, sneezing, billions of other bacteria around. now we'll be paying for the condom police. waste of $. they can police themselves.

Maybe we should require all men engaging in intercourse wear condoms. After all, they could spread disease, too.

I saw on the news that L.A. County will lose over $1 billion dollars a year in taxes and over 10,000 jobs from the porn industry once they leave the San Fernando Valley (since this Prop. has passed).

i agree with you lisa. hey all you others who feel it's a waste; if your single or decide to cheat whatever your call is and you "hook up" with someone who was in the industry or had sex with someone in the industry dont cry that you get a disease from them. and thats why to not spread it.

Right on Vito.... this prop blows!

thank you Lisa

you guys on here sound very ignorant. There are plenty of UNTOLD stories of diseases in this industry that affect peoples lives.This makes it safer for these performers. And if they lose their job that means they can go out and get a real JOB
David Robinson November 20, 2012 at 08:04 AM
The taxpayers foot the cost of medical expenses in this industry because the performers are not insured. They also perform in unsanitary conditions a lot of the time. But with all the problems in the U.S who really cares about porn?
David Robinson November 20, 2012 at 08:06 AM
This whole arguement just yet again proves why women are so much smarter then men, and I'm a man, so what does that tell you?
Can't Say November 20, 2012 at 02:57 PM
Maybe they're UNTOLD b/c it's not as prevalent as you think. I think we should require EVERYONE who waits in a doctor's office, urgent care to wear a filter mask so no disease or illness is spread (like dentists do). Keeps the community safe. When that passes, I'm going for everyone to wear latex gloves in social situations cuz shaking hands, coughing into hands freaks me out. Teachers should be wearing mouth masks too, not to mentions students. We'll all be super safe this way, right?

Maybe counsel from the Bible might help: regarding degenerates, God says "receiving unto themselves that recompense which was fitting"
