I wonder how many people are gonna start turning each other in..
Anyone filming adult content in Los Angeles is now required to pay a $1,671 health permit fee, undergo sexual health training, and mandate that performers wear condoms. Anyone who fails to comply with those strictures faces $1,000 fine, and up to six months in jail.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors this morning moved forward with new health permit fees for adult film shoots.
The new Measure B permit fee goes into effect tomorrow for all adult scenes shot in Los Angeles County.
Eric Paul Leue, the Free Speech Coalition’s executive director, in a conference after today’s board meeting at the Hall of Administration in downtown Los Angeles, told attending adult entertainment stakeholders that their input made a difference.
“Today the Board of Supervisors may not have heard us but maybe in the future they will,” Leue said. “And that is what we will continue to fight for. Just because we lose one battle does not mean we didn’t win the fight, and with that we will lose the war.
“So, don’t be discouraged. Keep on truckin’. We will keep up protecting ourselves better than the Board of Supervisors and the Department of Health understands,” he said. “And we will continue to make that education happen and move forward. So, don’t give up. Keep on believing. We’ve won a huge battle last year [referring to a proposed amendment to bloodborne pathogen statutes for adult productions]; this is nothing.”
Today’s meeting included public comment from a wide range of those working in adult entertainment, including adult performers Jessica Drake, Nina Hartley, Mia Li, Marcelo and Jacqui Blue, as well as cam performers Jay Taylor, Janice Griffith and Caterina Holly. Comment also came from director Brad Armstrong, as well as Leue, and the FSC’s Siouxsie Q, director of policy and industry relations, and the FSC’s Ian O’Brien, its scientific and regulatory director.
