The real outcome of yesterday's vote

LA Voters Tell The Porn Industry To Start Using Condoms

A measure that would require porn performers to wear condoms while filming in Los Angeles County was approved by voters.

The measure garnered 55.9% of the vote after a hard-fought campaign,

"This is a major referendum on the subject of safer sex," said AIDS Healthcare Foundation President Michael Weinstein.

The measure is sponsored by the foundation, which has been pushing for years to protect adult-film performers from HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Under the measure, the cost of the law would be paid for by porn producers, who would have to purchase a public health permit, much like tattoo parlors. Violators would be subject to fines and misdemeanor criminal charges.

Weinstein said the question now is whether the adult-film industry and the county government will cooperate.

"We have shown our resolve that we are not going to give up on this issue," he said. "Now that the people have spoken so overwhelmingly, it is the responsibility for the Board of Supervisors and the county Health Department to act immediately to enforce this law.
Supporters of Measure B cast the issue as one that would protect worker safety -- like requiring construction workers to wear hard hats and help keep the public safer from disease.

Opponents said they didn't want the creation of an unwanted, ineffective county bureaucracy. They said the industry should be trusted to police itself, and that performers are regularly tested for disease.

They also said that consumers do not want to buy pornography in which condoms are used.

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

What percentage of the industry shoot in LA county? This law could end up being a hardship on the local businesses that thrived from these productions. It is sad when good intentions cause more harm.
