Thumbs up Judge rejects mandatory condoms on L.A. porn sets

An AIDS advocacy group argued that L.A. County 'has passively observed an ever-growing epidemic' in the industry. The court ruled that the county has broad discretion in how it oversees health.

Judge dismisses petition requiring the use of condoms in porn films -- latimes.com


Good. Freedom won!

I don't know AUM, I would think it would be a smart thing to use condoms if you're an adult film star.

Required no, they are adults and can make their own decisions.

OSHA might want to encourage hard hats & Safety Harnesses though.

They're supposed to undergo testing to make sure they're not carriers of any STIs or STDs. What would be the point in using condoms? Obviously, there's a rigorous screening process.

The actors are required to get tested every 30 days. Yes, very rarely, someone slips through the cracks, but you're a LOT less likely to get a disease performing in a porn movie where everybody has been recently tested than you are by hooking up with some random person in a bar or off of Craigslist.

Yes, very true. It's funny, I would be a little squeamish about having sex w/a porn star, even knowing how often they're tested. Eh, it's my own hang ups. I will say, I don't like seeing porns where the guy is wearing a condom....lol, could I be more hypocritical?

HAHA! It is an occupation like any other.

And make sure that any and all pulled muscles on the job are immediately reported to your supervisor.

I am so happy the news is funny. Anyone taking this seriously probably leads a miserable existence of fear and shame. Who wants to live like that? Not me. Remember there is no spoon.

By the way make sure you wear a condom when watching a porn. You never know what you'll get. If you get an erection, you truly are sick. Because kryptonite aka condoms are not to be worn. If you do, you shouldn't be having sex in with that person in the first place. And if you are so scared of getting a disease from your lover, then you should not be having sex. A condom is only 99% right. I love not being scared of this propaganda. I do love being entertained by all of you sickos that would ruin a beautiful and natural act by putting a piece of plastic between you. Shame, Shame, Shame! God is shaking his head and mumbling, "that is not what I said. Why must the interpret or allow someone else to interpret me. I am personal to each human being and all I ask is that you think for yourselves. Sorry about the God thing. I don't know what I am talking about. The closest thing I see to God is my Dog. Wait, GOD DOG. DOG GOD. Isn't that amazing. By the way my dog is teaching me a wonderful Sunday Sermon: She is passed out on the couch. What the hell am I doing? I gonna go take a nap. Bye, bye.

Do you really think that? How about not become an adult film star in the first place. Condoms aren't 100% and you have to use them as directed. When have you ever seen a porn where a guy puts a condom on for oral sex?
Never. Why do people do anything at all. No one is safe. That is life. You might as well enjoy it. If I had the courage and actually got the part in a porn, I would whistle all the way home. Imagine getting paid for something you love. What do you do for a living? Do you love it? Are you happy?
