graymane (33) My guess is LA, as well as any other major porn producing entites go, is they'll take a jarring hit in the pocketbook, but, like the everready bunny, not buckin' but keep right on truckin'.

And It ain't Rocket-science, cuz the sheer volume of activity churned out from overall porn , the industry although lickin' it's wounds, will still be peaking, seemingly unabated.

lk2fireone (196) Move to where the law is not enforced. I read there are areas in Los Angeles County that will not enforce this law. even if it passes the legal challenges that it will face.

RustyJ (145) Relocate is my best guess. I understand the STD concerns and stuff but I wouldn't want my porn with condoms either.

Denner (235) Never heard of it, so yes: relocate.
Still, I always thought, that - today - responsible actors made sure about diseases - AND - craved some certainty before doing the worse part of risk: anal.

gaypornolover (38) I can only assume the major studios will relocate and some of the smaller ones will ignore the law - I mean how can you prove where a movie was filmed really?

Personally I don't understand what all the fuss is about.

I mean, I'm gay so the dick is obviously a big thing to me but I don't mind condoms - in fact I kinda like em - can be hot seeing a man put one on but they hardly ever show that in porn which I think is a shame.

For the straight viewer - well it's all about the ladies isn't it? The focus isn't really on the man or his dick so who cares if it's covered or not?

I guess it would ruin creampie if you like that, but otherwise it's all a bit of a fuss about nothing to me.

Can anyone explain to me why it would spoil things?

Monahan (42) REPLY TO #5 - gaypornolover :

gaypornlover, "I can only assume the major studios will relocate and some of the smaller ones will ignore the law - I mean how can you prove where a movie was filmed really?"

The proposition calls for all porn production companies to notify a new bureaucracy whenever they start a production so that the bureau can send an inspector* to the site. Failure to do so will result in serious penalties.

Because this was a ballot proposition and not a city ordinance, it cannot be ignored, but if they choose to, the producers can take the proposition through a court process which will delay implementation at worst, and possibly cause the law to be thrown out..

My guess is that the serious economic consequences to the City will result in a future proposition reversing this one. Soon. (The porn industry is located in the San Fernando Valley which is part of the City of LA. There are small towns and unincorporated areas that are not part of the proposition spotted throughout the city but none of them are near Chatsworth or Canoga Park where most of the big producers are located.

* This would be my kinda job!

elephant (67) Yeah I would think it would be a case that the studio would have to relocate, porn fan majority would not like every scene with condoms.

Porn industry does seem to be taking some hits these days with one thing after another.

I am the minority here and think that it will pass along industry wide. California is notoriously know for small laws becoming big ones.

Case:Starting in Davis California in the early 90's it was illegal to smoke in the city limits.
In 1995, California was the first state to enact a statewide smoking ban; throughout the early to mid 2000s, especially between 2004 and 2007, an increasing number of states enacted a statewide smoking ban of some kind. The most recent smoking ban, as of 2012, is North Dakota's statewide smoking ban, which was ratified by voters on November 6, 2012.

One small city, in northern California has changed the way and where people can smoke even on your own property.
Condom usages is exactly the same it is a human health issue in the upcoming years it will most likely be a federal law.

Thanks for the reply - I did wonder how it would be enforced and yes those inspectors are gonna have one hot job!

If I did it I'd happily offer to put the condoms on the male actors myself!

pat362 (373) I really wish they would comply but porn studios are naturally cheap and they'll do almost anything to avoid spending extra money on the protection of their employees and that definetely includes the use of condoms.

If porn studios were really interested in the health of the performers then they would have required that they all get tested for every type of STD and not just require them to test for HIV, gonorrhea and chlamydia. Some labs will for a lot more diseases and I think studios now require additional tests but the 3 original ons were the ones I named. That means that someone with herpes, syphilis and a few others could have worked without actually being aware that they are infected.

Drooler (220) How about condoms that look like penises? Then no one would even know ... except for the performers and crew.

Hey, they make didoes that look like them. Would it be that much of a stretch?

(Yes, pun intended ...)

marcdc1 (174) I seem to be with the majority in thinking that whatever the intentions of this law, it's application is doomed to failure.

Mom and pop shops can evade (how would you know where the shoot was done?)

Big companies will simply move shop, I can't imagine a porn set is THAT expensive.

It seems to me that supply and demand will work, as it always does. When there is demand for a product someone will become a producer of that product.
