Prop 60 is a new initiative to be made law to force adult performers in pornographic movies to wear condoms.
Proposition 60, the Condoms in Pornographic Films Initiative, will be on the November 8, 2016, ballot inCalifornia as an initiated state statute.
A “yes” vote would be a vote in favor of requiring 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.
A “no” vote would be a vote against requiring the use of condoms and other safety measures during the filming of pornographic films.
According to the website BALLOTPEDIA California is a leading producer of pornographic films, with most production occurring in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.
Proposition 60 would require adult film producers to provide condoms and ensure that performers use them during performances in which “performers actually engage in vaginal or anal penetration by a penis.” While condoms would not need to be visible in films distributed to consumers, producers would need to prove that condoms were used. The costs of performers’ workplace-related medical examinations, sexually-transmitted infections (STI) tests, and STI vaccines would be covered by film producers under the measure. Adult film producers would be required to be licensed by Cal/OSHA every two years. Furthermore, producers would be required to contact Cal/OSHA whenever they make an adult film.
Those for PROP 60 say it will provide a safe work environment for porn performers where the providers of the film will need to foot the bill for health check ups. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation is among Prop 60’s greatest supporters. “Just as a surgeon has to wear gloves or a construction worker has to wear hard hat, they as performers since they are employees, have to wear condoms. It’s already law, state mandated,” one of it’s main supporters was reported to say.
Those against PROP 60 include many adult film stars. They believe it would become a legal battleground where people would seek to profit by suing Porn Performers. Others see it as a legislation against the right to freely choose consensual sex. There is a fear that PROP 60 wants you to believe this is about worker safety. But this disguises the real impact of the measure: the creation of an unprecedented LAWSUIT BONANZA that will cost taxpayers ‘tens of millions of dollars’ and threatens the safety of performers.
