California work safety officials reject mandatory condom demands

Common sense has prevailed, momentarily, in the state of California:

California ‘won’t enforce’ porn movie condoms – BBC

If you weren’t aware, the Aids Healthcare Foundation went far beyond its remit and began lobbying for mandatory condom use citing work safety regulations as an excuse.

Now, I’m all for safe sex, but I’m more for personal choice and the freedom to make a decision based on relationship and personal choice. In no way is this demand a fair one one to make, and nor do the statistics support such drastic measures.

It seems to me that the Aids Healthcare Foundation has used every trick in the book to try to force this issue, from claiming that people would be influenced into not using condoms by seeing a bareback porn film, to claiming that it’s a reasonable safety measure while ignoring the rigorous routine testing methods performers already undergo.

None of it is supported of course, there’s no reason to believe going bareback in a porn film will encourage anyone to do anything, just as that same argument can’t be used in mainstream cinema. We don’t lobby against violence in action films because it might convince someone to harm someone else. We don’t lobby against violent video games or music because it might influence one person to do something criminal.

If they had won by using the workplace safety excuse this could in theory mean that performers will have to gear up in all kinds of safety equipment, not just condoms.

There is risk in so much of what everyone does on a daily basis, and some risks have to be accepted in order to live a free life. This is one of those times. I’m not fucking someone bareback, so why do I care if someone in California is doing so? We are all adults, and we have the right to make our own choices – even if someone else thinks it’s a bad decision.

Why doesn’t Aids Healthcare Foundation focus on other more important issues such as the spread of disease nationally by drug users who no longer have access to clean services?

While the Aids Healthcare Foundation has wasted potentially millions of $’s on this pointless attack on the adult industry, cities all over the US have been failing to deliver even the most basic health and support services to those who are genuinely more at risk. Why isn’t their ire directed at those cities and states who have been consistently failing their populations and allowing HIV infection rates to rise unchallenged?

I’ll tell you why I think the Aids Healthcare Foundation has decided to focus on this rather than anything actually important – because this is just another example of people cashing in personally on a crisis. This is another one of those “non-profit” groups that loves to lavishly spend while telling people almost nothing about where their finances are actually going.

Michael Weinstein himself was reportedly paid $398,650 in 2012. That’s no small amount I think you’ll agree. What makes things more suspicious of course is the fact that they don’t publish any financial documents voluntarily.

That should be a red flag to anyone supporting any organization. If they’re ashamed of being transparent about their own finances and where/how they spend their money then we should all be extremely suspicious of how trustworthy they are.

Thankfully they’ve lost this case, but this is not yet over. Los Angeles County made condom use mandatory in porn in 2012, by public vote, and there’s another public vote to make it mandatory across California in November.

Unless porn loving citizens feel motivated to get out there and vote it’s very likely the right-wing and their useful idiot friends at Aids Healthcare Foundation will easily pass this legislation through.

Unfortunately, as it was passed in 2012 for Los Angeles, and as groups like the Aids Healthcare Foundation have pretty deep pockets when it comes to the propaganda they spread, I think they’re likely to win. Of course, if they do win it will do absolutely NOTHING to the rate of infection in the state at all, it will just force porn production underground, or it will mean companies will start leaving California for other states without such laws.

And lets not forget too that while some might think this means little studios and their stars moving to other states, it actually means more than that – it means a loss of tax revenue, loss of employment for ancillary services such as tech, set designers, location use, studios, editing services, the performers themselves (and their taxes too)… there’s more potentially at risk here than *just* a couple of studios leaving the state.

We’re talking about a multimillion $ industry seeing more and more reasons to leave California. They will do it too.

If it does pass, it would be interesting to see visit this again in five years and check the HIV stats for California and LA, and compare that to the $’s lost as businesses flee the state.

Be awesome, share:
