Voters Back Bare Porn Stars



No Condoms Needed. Porn Stars In The Clear.

A measure that would require adult-film performers to wear condoms during sex scenes, and make producers and film distributors liable for violations, was being defeated by voters Tuesday night.

Proposition 60 was strongly opposed by the adult-film industry, including producers and many performers, and was primarily backed by the Hollywood-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which spearheaded a similar law that was approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2012.

In addition to requiring condoms, the measure would also require adult- film producers to pay for performer vaccinations, testing and medical exams for sexually transmitted diseases. It would also mandate that a notification be posted at film sites, and film producers would be required to obtain health licenses. The proposition imposes liability for violations on producers, distributors and performers who have a financial interest in the film, as well as on talent agents who refer performers to non-compliant producers.

Early vote tallies showed the measure being defeated by 53 percent of voters.

Opinion From A Porn Star

The combined result of our own vigilance and the diligence of porn studios is that the adult film industry currently has a prevention system that works: there have been no confirmed on-set transmissions of HIV in twelve years, and STI transmission rates are at or below what we see in the general population. The industry is already self-regulating.

It can be argued that the addition of mandatory condom use might improve performer safety even more. That may, in fact, be true — condoms are an important part of maintaining sexual health — and stand-alone legislation to address that issue would be worthy of serious consideration. While Prop 60 does include that provision, the other, less-publicized aspects of the proposed law are truly alarming.
