M CC Condom Measure B has Killed Porn Scenes in LA

Unintentional Durex Product Placement

Last November, the people of Los Angeles county voted to make condoms mandatory in all porn scenes filmed in their jurisdiction.

Almost the entire porn industry was against the mandate because condoms can be impractical while filming porn scenes and also production companies would be forced to pay lots of money and jump through hoops to get the necessary film permits.

As usual, the public wasn’t sympathetic to the plight of their local pornographers. They thought, “Well, porn studios would have to pay more…but to enforce this law, the county will have to make condom inspector jobs and we’ll be promoting safe sex at the same time…What could possibly go wrong?”

Let me tell you, a lot could go wrong…

Before the condom law (better known as Measure B) was passed, porn studios were following a strict set of rules that required porn stars to get tested for STIs at least once a month before they could film anything.

What I didn’t know until recently is that porn stars had to pay for their test themselves. For reference check out episode 4 of Kimberly Kane on Skinema (also a fresh STI test is like an aphrodisiac to porn stars, good to know!) STI tests are expensive, especially if you’re getting them constantly.

Seeing how much porn studios and porn stars were spending to film probably had L.A. county rock hard. Ready to rake in all that porn scene permit cash and also collect on anyone disobeying Measure B.

But when it came time for porn studios to get their permits this year, only two requests were made.

Only two requests. There were five hundred requests last years.

OOPS.

Just as everyone predicted, the porn industry has left L.A. County for the greener pastures of Ventura County, California.

Ventura County is just out of Measure B‘s reach and there have been so many requests to shoot porn scenes that they had to set a 45-day moratorium so that they could figure out how to deal with all the money that was dropped on them.

If only the people L.A. County had taken or known about the porn class offered at Pasadena City College. They maybe would have learned that porn scenes are not supposed to be educational. Porn scenes are for arousal, inspiration, and entertainment.

I’m sure I’ve said this before but we don’t expect mainstream movies to educate us. I’ve seen so many people shoot guns in movies but I know that the way they’re depicted in film doesn’t reflect how they work in real life.

The only thing that people should learn from porn is that real sex isn’t like porn. How many times have you been in a meeting at work and then fucked your boss on her desk? Probably very few. Because it’s not real. Porn scenes are entertainment, that’s all. Remember that.

You know who I actually feel bad for though? All those people who have friends working for the city that were promised jobs as condom inspectors for porn scenes. I’m sure they were really looking forward to hanging around hot women all day long.

Oh well, at least they can fantasize about being partnered with former porn star Jenna Haze:

    This proposal is stupid. Many jobs are risky (underwater welding, race car driver, crab fisherman etc). As long as the people are willing to take the risks based on a knowledge of the dangers and the risks are minimized thorough proper safety procedures that are not detrimental to the industry, they should be allowed to make that decision. We’re all adults here, and as an adult I think people have the right to do with their bodies as they see fit, as long as they’re aware of said risks. It will just move the business (and money)elsewhere.
