I think this is a bad bill and precedence. They are over reacting to an issue that can be dealt with by prohibiting any performer from crossing over between gay/bi porn and straight porn. Also forcing improvement in their testing frequency and technology.

So far the HIV cases reported in the industry has been males as patient Zero and they had contracted it by performing in bareback oral and anal gay porn scenes. So this obviously is the genesis of problem.

It sounds like Sharron Mitchell @ AIM got overwhelmed and the need for revenue to keep it going compromised quality of service.

In today's more accepting society, there are probably several actual medical clinics that would gladly service the industry in multiple cities. This would give higher confidence in the testing results.

If they have mandatory condom use, then the industry will start to shoot in other states, where it is legal. They know that the purchaser of porn do not want condoms on the actors. They've done there market research. There are a few production houses that require condoms and their sales have declined compared to non-condom.

It also should be up to the two performers what they want.

I have the state micromanaging a business like this when there are other options.

It is a very good idea.Also,stop shaving the pubes like a 'baby's ass.'It makes one look like a circus freak.I don't really frequent porn;but,I don't condemn those women who work in the sex industry.They have families,bills,and need to eat also.Also,why would it be sinful for women to do for cash;what they do for free in the bedroom?SEX is a commodity.
