  • Activists seek to put porn actor condom requirement on California ballot

    Reuters - Thu 19 Feb, 2015 3:50 AM IST

    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.
