L.A. condom law making porn business go soft

LOS ANGELES, CA – Warning: the following story contains content that may make immature boys snicker.

The word out of Los Angeles is that porn producers are pulling out of LA County in a big way.

In fact, the demand for permits for X-rated productions has gone soft, shrinking by 90 percent this year.

Film LA, Inc., which handles film permits for the city and county, says it issued just 20 permits in the first seven months of this year. And it’s because of the county ordinance requiring condom use in all dirty movies made in the county.

In other words, producers have to wrap it or wrap it up.

So, they’re packing their junk in the trunk and doing their business in other places that are opening up for them. Places like Eastern Europe, Florida, Nevada, and other California counties.

The ordinance is supposed to promote safe sex as a way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases and aids.

But porn producers and performers say it just makes it hard on them by causing rashes and chafing during long sessions that sometimes last an hour.

In the end, the adult film makers may withdraw completelyfrom California if the state senate passes a house bill requiring condoms in all porn productions.

That would put a lot of people out of work. Performers can come and go, but others in the industry will have to find other local work when their jobs blow out of town.
