Use of Condoms Mandatory for Porn Movie Actors: LA Council

Use of Condoms Mandatory for Porn Movie Actors: LA Council

An ordinance issued by the Los Angeles City Council was released recently, and it proclaimed that the actors of adult movies will have to use condoms now. However, the proposal is yet to be approved by the mayor.

In the meantime, discussions are being done among police officials, the city attorney, and other concerned to implement this rule. The move is being opposed by the porn industry's major players, but there was still a consensus on the move being taken in the City Council.

“The only thing that the city could potentially achieve is losing some film permit money and driving some productions away, but you can't actually compel an industry to create a product that the market doesn't want”, said Christian Mann, the General Manager of Evil Angel Productions, who is among the industry's biggest makers of porn films. There are many like him who are of the say that porn films using condoms are not being sold popularly.

One of the veteran porn actresses, Tabitha Stevens, is of the say that she would recommend the use of condoms. However, making it mandatory by the government seems to be over exaggerated. There are ways and means to check if any actor has got infected for sexually transmitted diseases while working for any movie, but including condoms would simply destroy the mass appeal of movies.

However, many people, including the spokesman for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Ged Kenslea, are of the opinion that the tests being done so far are not concrete enough to be considered. Thus, there are more stern measures required to be taken in the same regard. In response to the outrage among the porn film makers about the move, Kenslea is of the say that there would not be any major damage done to the established industry.
