Elections get dirty as adult filmmakers set up political action committee

By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) – California politics got a bit more racy on Wednesday, as producers and actors in the adult film business said they had formed a political action committee, or PAC, to fight a ballot initiative to require the use of condoms when shooting explicit sex scenes. The move by an industry association representing California’s busy pornographers – a $ 4 billion industry in California whose loss could cost the state tens of millions in tax revenues and up to 20,000 jobs – is the latest chapter in a years-long skirmish with public health advocates over how best to prevent sexually transmitted disease among performers of pornography. Los Angeles, and especially the San Fernando Valley area, has historically been a hub of porn production.
