Porn industry declares war on new condom law, & Vivid says industry will fight it “to the very end”

The #pornindustry is upset people decided to Vote YES on B & #safesex will be enforced. They say they will leave LA.

[LA Times Blogs] The porn industry is looking for ways to derail a voter-approved ballot measure that requires actors to use condoms during filming.

Porn producers have long said consumers will not purchase movies in which actors wear condoms and on Wednesday, executives and directors once again threatened to move from long-time production sites in the San Fernando Valley to other California counties, Las Vegas or Hungary, Europe’s center of adult moviemaking.

“I love this business, but I feel this is an attempt to drive us out of California,” said veteran director Kevin Moore.

In a letter to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the head of an industry lobbying group called the law “untenable for adult production” and said the group was preparing a lawsuit to stop it from going into effect on 1st Amendment and other grounds.

Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who has been critical of the measure, said it would be difficult for the county to enforce the law because many porn shoots occur in private homes and are never registered with authorities. But he added that the county was obligated to enforce the law, which passed with 55.9% of the vote.

“People voted for it, and they’re entitled to have it on the books,” Yaroslavsky said. “It’s a challenge we’re going to have to confront.”

The Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act, also known as Measure B, was the brainchild of the L.A.-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which bills itself as the largest AIDS healthcare organization in the world.
