Does LA Dislike the Porn Industry?

Los Angeles is a porn industry town. Well, it’s a general entertainment industry town. Porn is great to shoot there for the same reasons that people went there to shoot movies: Lots of sunny days, nice comfortable temperatures and easy living. LA is a city that is all about beauty and fun, and that’s what porn is about too, so it makes sense that the industry has found a happy home there. However, a few years ago a law was put into place for Los Angeles that said that all porn performers must wear condoms in porn movies. The people who put this law into place aren’t even in the porn industry so they probably didn’t even know that porn performers get tested every 2 weeks in order to even be able to work at reputable porn studios, and that it is probably safer to fuck a pornstar than it is to fuck anyone else, because their career is their sexual health so they are really careful with it.

Well, this law hasn’t really had a huge effect on things, because people have just gone to the towns on the outskirts of Los Angeles to shoot porn, and some studios have even picked up and moved to Las Vegas. In addition, other studios that are based in Florida have started to thrive putting Miami and Tampa as a new center for porn productions. As you can see, pornstars like warm places where they can run around in hot bikinis all the time.
About a year ago, a measure was on the ballot for the whole state of California to require condoms in porn, but that measure failed thanks to the concerted effort of pornstar and sex worker advocates who let everyone know that they can take care of their own sexual choices, thank you very much! However, now the city of LA has enacted a measure that will cause porn studios located within the borders of the city to pay a high fee for inspection every 2 years in order to get a permit for operation. The fee is $1600 and it is unprecedented. It’s especially unfair because most people making porn these days are just small producers. They make videos in their home and maybe they do live webcam shows. For large studios $1600 might be a drop in the bucket but for someone who just makes a few videos a month and sells them on a small scale, that might be what they make in a whole month from selling their videos.

It seems like Los Angeles is well on the way to losing the millions and potentially billions of dollars of income that it gets from people who love to make porn living within its borders. Places like Vegas which is kind of an anything goes place seem more and more inviting to small time producers who are really just trying to get by while they have some sexy fun! One thing is for sure – porn will always find a way to get made because people don’t want to stop watching it.
