22 Oct Proposition 60: Condoms in Pornographic Films Initiative (NO)
Explanation: Proposition 60 requires the use of condoms and other protective measures during the filming of pornographic films, as well as requiring pornography producers to pay for certain health requirements and checkups.
BWW Analysis: BWW wants everyone to engage in safe sex practices, whether it is for work or for play. Having the leverage for adult entertainers to be protected on set is needed. However the definition of “pornography” and the gray areas is a part of the problem here. The proposition is worded in such a way that it can open up the door for people to intrude into our personal lives and create situations where people can sue private couples. The largest porn workers union is against this and given that we believe they have the best interest of the porn workers (not to be confused with industry) at heart – we will go with them on this.
