Do you think the men should be protected while having sex during a porn shoot? In 2012, the Los Angeles County made a law requiring condom use by porn performers. It was a 9-1 vote in favor of men wearing condoms during porn shoots, which was a win for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has been rallying to protect the health of porn stars for many years while lawmakers ignored it and chose not to crack down. Los Angeles County were the first people to take up the issue and they had an almost unanimous vote. There have been many shoots that have been suspended due to the fact that many people had HIV. With this new rule in place it would require porn producers to pay a fee to fund surprise inspections of their shoots. “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.” Weinstein said that gay porn performers have been using condoms for years.
I think it should be mandatory for the men to wear condoms when filming porn because who knows how many women he has been with during other film’s. I know some porn groups test their porn stars before they do any films but I don’t think that the low-grade porn does the same testing. I think that many people that are in this billion-dollar industry are not clean. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to protect themselves against any diseases they could contract. I think it is great that Los Angeles City Counsel passed this ordinance because it is something that should have been mandatory many years ago. What do you think? Should the men have to be protected while having intercourse? Should gay couples have to be protected as well?
