porn makingAfter five years of public hearings and heated debates, a proposed set of health and safety standards for all California porn production sets is edging closer to being finalized, but adult film performers say if passed, the new regulations would make sex scenes look like medical dramas.

The 21-page draft, proposed by the state's Division of Occupational Safety and Health, blends thick regulatory definitions with graphic language as it outlines how adult film performers and others on set can protect themselves from bloodborne pathogens and other bodily fluids. It underscores the use of condoms as a way to protect against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

During a hearing and public comment period, adult film performers and their supporters said the regulations which include wearing protective eye gear go too far. Diane Duke, CEO of the Free Speech Coalition, said:

These are regulations designed for medical settings, and are unworkable on an adult film set, or even a Hollywood film set,

Duke said her organization and several other groups would prefer to see the proposed regulation amended with input from both performers and public health officials, in ways that protect adult film performers without stigmatizing and shutting down an entire industry.

 Update: Constitutionally Libellous...

US state of Georgia imposes morality tax on strip clubs justified by claims of them supposedly causing child trafficking

GeorgiaIn the United States, the Georgia House has approved a constitutional amendment imposing a morality tax on strip clubs supposedly to help combat child sex trafficking.

The charge would be $5,000 or 1% of revenue on adult entertainment businesses, whichever is greater. The funds will apparently go towards a new commission responsible for coordinating services for victims of child trafficking, although details on this are very vague.

Representative Tom Weldon made the bold and probably libellous claim that strip clubs cause child sex trafficking, claiming:

These are not legitimate businesses. These are strip joints. They are illegitimate and they need to pay for the problem and the cancer they have brought to each community in our society.

The text of the bill claims that strip clubs are a point of access for children to come into contact with people who would abuse them but offers no evidence of how this conclusion was arrived at.

Alan Begner, an attorney for several of strip club owners responded that there was no evidence linking strip clubs to child prostitution or trafficking. He said that he will sue if the measure is passed into law.

Both measures must return to the Senate for consideration after revisions were made. According to WABE, voters would still have to approve the fee because the state constitution would be altered if it passed into law.

 

  The End...

Rocco Siffredi announces his retirement from performing in porn films

dvd_front_cover Legendary performer/director Rocco Siffredi, AVN's reigning Male Foreign Performer of the Year, has announced his retirement from performing on-camera sex. He recently sent out the following statement:

Since 30 years I am in this business, and since 23 years I am married to my wife, Rosa who gave me an amazing family.

During in those 30 years I always worked with the same energy and dedicated all my soul and body to this work.

Even though more than a year ago I started to get uncomfortable in the front of the camera, something inside of me has changed, and all this is related to my family.

I am sure in the future I will be missing very much to be in the front of the camera but I am also sure that this challenge, to be just behind of the camera will give me lots of motivation to make great movies as I always did when I was also an actor.

I would like to make a conclusion by saying a big-big thanks for all of my fans who supported me and to make my career the way I had, wonderful.

And to all of the actresses, actors, producers and directors who I met during these 30 years, working together, enjoying great moments that made my life.

And I am very, very grateful for my amazing friend John Stagliano, who has been my mentor for all those 30 years. I learned most of my knowledge from this incredible man with his sincerity and honesty by teaching me all what I know.

All the best.

And an example of his work:
