Porn stars angry at condom requirement, threaten to leave L.A.

AIDS activists called a requirement that porn performers wear condoms while filming a “referendum on the subject of safer sex.”

But with almost all the votes tallied and Measure B winning passage, many in the adult film industry were wondering what’s next for the industry — and whether they must now take their business out of Los Angeles County.

During its campaign against the condom requirement, the industry said 10,000 jobs would be at stake and that film companies might be forced to leave Los Angeles County, taking away an industry worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

It’s a dark day for porn…somehow measure b passed.” tweeted @FetishMoviesCom.

Under the measure, the cost of the law would be paid for by porn producers, who would have to purchase a public health permit, much like tattoo parlors. Violators would be subject to fines and misdemeanor criminal charges.

Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation which advocated for mandatory condom use, said it remains to be seen how the county plans to enforce the new law.

Now that the people have spoken so overwhelmingly, it is the responsibility for the Board of Supervisors and the county Health Department to act immediately to enforce this law,” Weinstein said.

Measure B passed by 5.85% of the vote — by an 11 to 9 margin. Clearly Michael Weinstein’s understanding of the definition of “overwhelming” leaves as much to be desired as his respect for personal liberties and honest debate.

stupid is as stupid does…or perhaps in this instance, stupid is as stupid says, is more fitting.
