L.A.’s ridiculous “condoms-in-porn” law went into effect today (good luck enforcing it), and like L.A., neighboring Simi Valley doesn’t want bareback porn (or any porn, really) in their city either. They’re working on their own similar law, but there’s a twist!
Under its proposed law, the city would require producers to hire on-set medical professionals, who would attest to appropriate condom use. At the end of a shoot, the producers would have to send their unedited video to the police department, where employees would scrutinize it.
As noted earlier, productions have already started moving to Las Vegas. And I see today that some are going to Phoenix, too. As if the industry wasn’t hurting (if not dying) already, now studios are supposed to move their entire operations out of state while any amateur can film whatever he or she wants from the comfort of his or her own living room? Maybe we should start policing people with webcams?
