California ballot initiative would require porn actors to wear condoms

Actors in adult films in California would be required to wear condoms during explicit sex scenes under a referendum that qualified for the November 2016 ballot on Wednesday. The measure, based on a similar ballot initiative that passed in Los Angeles three years ago, is backed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a healthcare and advocacy group devoted to preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. California Secretary of State Alex Padilla said on Wednesday the organization had submitted more than enough valid signatures to get the measure before voters next year.

Activists seek to put porn actor condom requirement on California ballot

By Michael Fleeman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Healthcare activists critical of adult film industry practices are working to put a measure before California voters next year to require porn actors to use condoms during film production, expanding a Los Angeles County rule that survived a legal challenge. The proposed ballot measure, aimed at protecting actors from sexually transmitted diseases, would require film companies to be licensed by the state and would impose fines of $ 70,000 for offenders. Under a final draft of the measure filed with the state on Tuesday, film companies would have to post warning signs visible to performers stating that California law requires condom use for “all acts of vaginal or anal intercourse during the production of adult films.” “We’re trying to protect both performers as well as those who would interact with performers and keep everybody safer as a result of safe sex,” said Bradley Hertz, an attorney for the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which is sponsoring the measure.

Porn productions suspended after performer tests positive for HIV

By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A porn industry trade group has placed a moratorium on U.S. The suspension, which began on Thursday, marks at least the third consecutive summer that porn productions have been shut down because of performers who tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. The online notice posted by the Los Angeles-based Free Speech Coalition did not identify the latest performer in question and said results from a confirmatory HIV test had yet to be completed. Under the group’s own health screening procedures, a moratorium is deemed to be warranted if any performer who tests positive has worked with anyone else from two weeks prior to his or her last negative HIV test to the date the positive result came back.
