Swingers View On Condoms In The Porn Industry

Yesterday a Los Angeles city council voted 9 to 1 to enforce condoms to be worn during porn shoots. Although this measure is enforced in Los Angeles, it does not pertain to other studios outside of the city.

The condom vote Tuesday marks a significant victory for the L.A.-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation. For years the L.A. based foundation has been rallying for performers to wear condoms and even to try and mandate the ordinance. In the past decade, porn shoots have been suspended several times following high-profile cases where porn performers have been infected with HIV.

Michael Weinstein, the president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation said “It’s a great day for the performers and safer sex in our society,”. For years lawmakers ignored or dismissed initiatives to crack down on condom use. Apparently the AIDS Healthcare Foundation garnered signatures of voters to pass an ordinance on the use of condoms. the ordinance actually goes a bit further, listen to this, the ordinance requires adult film producers when seeking a filming permit to:

  • Use Condoms During Filming
  • Pay a fee which would fund surprise inspections.

The proposed requirement would have targeted the multibillion-dollar porn industry centered in the San Fernando Valley. The city council members voted and approved the measure because it would have cost tax payers $4 million dollars to hold a special election.

Porn industry representatives were furious at the vote. Diane Duke of the lobbying group Free Speech Coalition said, “This is government overreach. It’s not about performer health and safety, it’s about government regulating what happens between consenting adults.”

I am curious to see the readers input and fellow swingers input on this issue. Do you think the porn industry in Los Angeles should be forced to wear condoms? Do you think that the city officials have gone too far? Or do you agree with this? Please leave a comment below thanks guys and gals.
