CA porn industry moving to the Phoenix Valley?

TEMPE, AZ – Could California’s billion dollar porn industry be headed to the Valley?

One adult film star says it’s a possibility.

Taryn Thomas tells ABC15 Arizona could see an increase in adult films being made here because of a new regulation in Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles City Council recently passed an ordinance requiring condom use on porn sets.

Filming pornography is actually legal in California but that’s not the case in Arizona, here it’s considered pandering.

But Thomas tells ABC15 pornography is shot in Arizona anyway.

In fact, Thomas says the Valley is a breeding ground for adult film stars like her.

Thomas says with porn being a multi-billion dollar industry, Arizona should be happy to have it.

“Ultimately it’s going to bring revenue if it does come here,” said Thomas. “Arizona should be thankful and begging us to come here because our state is in such a budget deficit.”

But Shelley Lubben, President of the Pink Cross Foundation, believes talk of the porn industry moving to Arizona is simply a bluff to get the ordinance changed.

If the industry does move to Arizona, Lubben says Arizona will be worse off for it.

“You don’t want this in Arizona because they’re bringing prostitution,” said Lubben. “They’re bringing illegal drugs. They’re having unprotected sex so those sexually transmitted diseases go into the general public. You don’t want this.”

Thomas says porn producers may use this weekend’s Arizona Pornstar Ball being held in Tempe to scout out the Valley.

Being billed as Arizona’s first adult convention, the Arizona Pornstar Ball will take place Saturday and Sunday at 910 Live near McClintock Drive and McKellips Street.

While other groups that reach out to adult entertainers are horrified at the notion of performers moving away from LA — making outreach more difficult — Shelley Lubben demonstrates her utter lack of concern for these people. If she were truly a “missionary” to the porn community as she falsely claims, she would have never backed measures that will (and already have) pushed production away from Los Angeles. On top of that, with her ‘porn stars are drug addled Typhoid Marys” line of BS, Lubben’s contempt for the very people she claims to love and want to help is on… Read more »

In the wake of an outcry last night about Lubben’s utter lack of credibility ABC15 re-redited this segment, and has re-aired it twice today so far with Lubben’s tirade removed. Apparently they thought twice about using as a source a woman who not only claims that her herpes was miraculously healed, but who, when asked to prove that she ever had herpes, answered, “Prove I didn’t.”
