    The State of California is considering regulating adult video productions so that performers are "fully protected" from diseases.

    I just saw this on the Adult Video News website:

    If the state Labor Department’s stance that adult performers are employees is ascertained to be correct, then blood borne pathogen regulations will require not only condoms, but other personal protective equipment including dental dams and possibly even goggles.

    lol...can you imagine?!

    Wait . . . Fully protected? Wouldn't that mean no insertion at all?

    Trust California to go ape-shit over something like this.

    Oh yeah...and the other 49 states would just LOVE to have adult videos being produced in their states. Right.

    Almost every state in the U.S. has laws against making adult videos. California is still the most "adult video-friendly" state for now. If they do require condom usage, however, I&#39;m sure that many studios will leave the state.

    While I think the state is having a short-term overreaction to the recent HIV scare in straight porn, there are some legitimate health issues here. There have been some reports that straight porn performers have an STD rate more than 30 times higher than in the general population. And these people aren&#39;t just having sex with each other. That could be a public health issue for Los Angeles County, and that&#39;s a county that can&#39;t afford the problems it already has. I agree that it would be ineffective because the productions would just move elsewhere and it&#39;s probably just grandstanding in Sacramento, not a real effort to protect people from diseases.

    I also heard recently that more than half the gay porn actors are HIV+. A lot of the companies have condom-only policies, but many don&#39;t. Apparently this has created a niche market for condomless gay porn, especially if one or more of the actors is positive. (If any gay porn fans want to correct me on that, feel free.) The idea of someone having unprotected sex on camera with someone they KNOW is HIV positive is baffling to me.

    The vast majority of gay studios use condoms. The few who don&#39;t generally employ HIV+ men who are comfortable having sex with other men who are HIV+.

    Oh, thanks. I don&#39;t have a map of Europe handy. I thought Prague was in Germany, which is known mostly for, well, let&#39;s just say Prague may be the gay porn, but Berlin&#39;s the queer one. (As in, "I had a queer dream last night where I was giving an oral report only to find out I was naked.")
