    I'm sure that, outside of having sex on camera for money, this guy lives a chaste life. :eusa_whistle:

    So, what do you all think? Should porn film sex be safe sex?

    Again, people should be able to make their own choices. he made his now he can live with the results but he has no right to legislate behavior for everyone else.

    But, we aren't allowed to make our own choices in many job related instances. The article cites hard hats as an example. Many other occupations required the use of personal safety equipment. Healthcare, construction, trucking, all have strict requirements.

    Condoms should be made mandatory for Catholic Priests as well.

    This is a valid point.

    However, there's no demand for guys working without a hard hat.

    Since there IS a demand for guys working without a condom, then once the regulation requiring them to work WITH a condom is implaced, there will be an underground illegal porn industry in California. More of a concern to the industry is that the domestic regulation will be grounds for the establishment of a foreign beach-head for a competitive porn industry.

    Just another example of domestic regulations sending business overseas.

    That's because you can sue an employer so the employer sets the standard of safety.

    If you are an independent contractor like a porn "actor" then you can set your own standards. Of course another "actor" who has to screw you also has the option to demand an aids test or demand that you wear a condom but there need not be legislation.

    you can get hiv thru so called normal sex

    the hiv is not a strong virus and needs a tear to enter the blood stream...that is why anal sex spreads the virus so quickly....and why male/female
    normal sex (whatever the hell that is)
    does not spread the virus so easily....

    now the topic.....mandatory confom use....in porno films....i vote no...in the sense you realize the risk one takes but i can certianly see the arguement.....motor cyclists must wear helmets in some states and the hard hatted construction work.....but this is porno..where laws should not prohibit how much money you can earn plying your trade...and the big bucks....bareback gay porn
