Why didn't Measure B get passed for the Nation? Because Vivid Ent. is weak.

Who likes to watch boring girlie's porn anyway? The internet is only SO BIG. Vivid entertainment didn't have to SPAM their garbage law online to make it pss to buff out the smaller companies off their block trick.

There's a big difference in the kind of shafts were talking about here.

And speaking of shafts, why does anyone care what these people do since there isn't a chance in HEL! that their actions will ever effect them? Unless the spouse catches you late at night watching porn on the Intertubes, what difference does it make? Too many prudes and Puritans here thinking they can subject free-thinking individuals into their self-loathing group think.

So, we shouldn't bother with OSHA standards for coal miners. If miners choose that career, they are aware of the risks they are taking, aren't they?

Why should the porn industry have a different standard for employee safety than every other industry?

This is one of those issues where everyone is right. Porn with condoms is safer. Porn with condoms is less interesting. L.A. certainly has the right to say "not here". Porn will certainly just relocate.

Everyone is right.

This is the most ridiculous waist of taxpayer time and money that I have EVER SEEN. This is absolutely un-American and just wrong. How can you force people to do something that that don't want or need to do? This is Unconstitutional and the Voters of L.A. should be ashamed of themselves. I always find it hilarious that the people who think that they are the most liberal and open minded are usually the most oppressive closed minded and out of touch people there are in the existence.

It is NOT safer to use a rubber that may break than to be screened, and that's coming from people who actually work in the industry and know what they're talking about. This was as valid a measure as the laws allegedly intended to prevent voter fraud. I marvel at the LA area being so puritanical and easily misled. When have you ever seen the members of an entire industry spend their own time trying to block safer work conditions? Never, because it would make no sense.

This is politicians doing what they do best: solving a problem that doesn't exist while ignoring real issues.

Porn seems to be a bit like modern day gladiators, they perform for our lust and entertainment not for their own safety. Now, I don't think gladiators perform of their own free will, I think they were mostly slaves and drafted into the life/sport. So the equivalent of that would be the porn producers forcing the performers to have unprotected sex on film. Is that the case? Do the producers say no condoms or is it actors choice?

Having no trust for these people to get fairly tested by the companies doctors,nor would I trust what kind of follow up care is provided. The industry was set on its ear when an actor came up positive and they had no idea how many people had been infected by him. Condom use is not a guarantee but doing nothing is. I say let the industry leave and take their funds with them if they don't like the knew ruling.

While the Los Angeles County Sheriff Jail Medical Mental facility isn't licensed or legally operated or regulated when it is a federal law? Oh THAT, OOps. They are SPECIAL

Doesn't mean much...this part of the film industry will just pickup and take their tax revenue to another state just like most of Hollywood has already done. More and more movies are being filmed in Vancouver and New Mexico due to taxes and restrictions...

UPDATE: The Free Speech Coalition sent a letter Wednesday to the LA County Board of Supervisors saying that they will challenge the law in court, according to adult film industry new source AVN. The group's CEO, Diane Duke, said that the law is "unconstitutional on the grounds of forced expression, but also falls within the jurisdiction of the state of California rather than local government." She asked the Supervisors to "suspend the implementation of the law until the courts have rendered their decision on the aforementioned issues."

Stuart Waldman, president of the Valley Industry and Commerce Association, which represents businesses in the San Fernando Valley, said to Bloomberg that now that the measure has passed,“A lot of producers will fly to Las Vegas and spend the day shooting there and come back after a day’s worth of work. It’s easy. Today, you don’t have to move truckloads of equipment.”

However, many in the porn industry think that condoms are unnecessary because the industry already conducts regular STD checks. They also say that condoms would hurt their profit and drive the industry either out of LA or underground, creating even more unsafe conditions.

Perhaps most loudly, some adult film performers have said that Measure B infringes on their rights and freedom to do what they want with their bodies.

"We are much like the homosexual, minority or female populations," Deen told HuffPost. "We are a community of tax-paying and law-abiding voters who are currently being persecuted. But our opinions do matter, and I hope one day we get respect as these previously-stated groups and others have begun to receive."

Path to the ballot
County

By mid-April 2012, supporters of the initiative said that they had collected about 235,000 signatures in Los Angeles County toward their goal of collecting 374,000 signatures by early June. 232,000 valid signatures is the minimum requirement to force the initiative to a vote on the November 6, 2012 ballot.
City

To earn a spot on the LA city-wide ballot, supporters of mandatory condom usage by actors in porn movies needed to collect a minimum of 41,138 qualifying signatures, or 15% of all votes cast in the last mayoral election. The deadline for submitting signatures was December 23, 2011.[1]

70,901 signatures were submitted by the deadline, and on December 23, election officials stated that a review of the signatures found that the minimum threshold for qualifying for the ballot had been achieved.[12]

It is unusual for a ballot initiative to qualify for the City of Los Angeles ballot. The last time one did qualify was in 1993.[1]

The City of Los Angeles subsequently filed a lawsuit with the aim of keeping the initiative off their ballot. They contended that according to California law, only the state has the authority to regulate condom usage and that therefore, a city such as Los Angeles is not allowed to enact its own law on the subject of condoms.[7]

The complaint said in part:

"Pre-election, judicial review of whether the city is preempted from presenting to the voters the measure submitted by defendants serves the public interest because a post-election judicial determination that the measure is preempted by state law voters undermines public trust in the petition process. Furthermore, a post-election determination that a measure is patently illegal would undermine the public trust in the government institutions and elected officials who play a role in the qualification measures for the ballot. A post-election determination that a measure is patently illegal undermines the credibility of the elections process in general, which is amongst our most treasured and essential democratic institution.

A post-election judicial determination that an initiative is illegal would also waste millions of dollars of taxpayer money incurred in the process of preparing such initiative for the ballot."[7]

According to the legal theory advanced in the lawsuit, only the state agency Cal/OSHA is allowed to pass laws and regulations governing workplace safety.[1]

In July 2011, Cal/OSHA sent a letter to the City of Los Angeles saying that in it's opinion, the City of Los Angeles can pass its own laws regulating condom use on movie sets.[13]

A hearing on the lawsuit took place on January 25, 2012.
