Porn production plummets 90% in Los Angeles in the wake of mandate requiring performers to wear condoms

Ever since California voters backed a measure requiring adult entertainment performers to wear condoms on sets in Los Angeles County, permits for porn production have plummeted.

The Los Angeles Times reports that 40 permits for adult productions were issued across the city and county last year, a 90 per cent drop from 2012 when the measure was passed.

The law, called Measure B, was pushed by HIV/AIDS activists arguing it would prevent disease outbreaks.

 

 

The industry argued that mandatory performer testing was already effective and that consumers did not want to purchase pornography that featured condoms.

Performers have also contended that condoms can cause rashes and discomfort over long shoots.
