FASCISTS TRYING TO RUIN PORN

By 03.10.10

A public health campaign in Southern California could soon change the way we masturbate.

In response to pressure from AIDS Healthcare Foundation officials, state regulators are poised to consider amending state law to require condom use in adult film production.
On Thursday, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health standards board is scheduled to consider a petition the foundation filed in December to change state law and require condom use and other safe sex protections for adult-film workers, including increased safety training and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
The foundation, a Los Angeles-based advocacy group, has been pressuring regulators and the porn industry to better safeguard the health of adult-film performers since an HIV outbreak among Los Angeles-based performers in 2004, Weinstein said. [LA Times]

Since I happen to know a little something about the porn industry, I know that the outbreak in question started with Darren James, who had been filming in Brazil.  When he came back, he took a test (currently required for all porn actors) too soon, it came back negative, and he ended up infecting a Canadian porn star named Lara Roxx, who’d only been in the business three months.  Yes, that really sucks.  But perhaps I’m biased, seeing as how I like seeing condoms in my porn about as much as I like seeing condoms in my poop (too far?), but it seems like requiring condoms in all porn is kind of like killing a gnat with a bazooka, when better testing regulations would do the trick.  Or maybe they should just stop filming scenes with such dirty sluts.  I mean half the time it’s right there in the title, they’re practically advertising it.

A cautionary tale?
