Tera Patrick and Ron Jeremy say no to ‘Los Angeles Porn Actors Required to Wear Condoms Act, Measure B’ (VIDEO)

In response to an initiative that will appear on the Nov. 6, 2012 Los Angeles County ballot that would require porn stars to wear condoms, two legends of the industry have shot a video urging people to vote no on the measure.

In the video, shot by Axel Braun and funded by the No on Government Waste Committee, stars Tera Patrick and Ron Jeremy who discuss safety and the risk  of losing the billion-dollar industry to other states.

“Since 1998, the adult entertainment industry has set up a mandatory testing protocol that protects us from contracting sexually transmitted diseases on a film set and from spreading it in our own private lives,” Jeremy explains in the video, while Patrick warns that, “a mandatory condom law will not make our workplace any safer, but it will drive our 20-billion-dollar industry and 10,000 jobs out of L.A. County.”

The Los Angeles Porn Actors Required to Wear Condoms Act, Measure B, is opposed by Diane Duke, the executive director of the Free Speech Coalition who says, “History has shown us that regulating sexual behavior between consenting adults does not work. The best way to prevent the transmission of HIV and other STIs is by providing quality information and sexual health service, all of which are successfully provided through adult industry protocols and best practices.”

Stuart Waldman, president of the San Fernando Valley Industry and Commerce Association (VICA) says, “The real results of this ballot measure, should it pass, will be a loss of thousands of jobs. The industry employs more than 10,000 workers in production-related jobs such as makeup, lighting, carpenters, transportation, food service, payroll processing, Web design and actors.

Measure B was funded and placed on the ballot by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, who in turn launched its official “Yes on B” campaign last month.

Arguments in favor of the measure include:

  • Measure B “stops the spread of disease. Reputable health experts have determined that condoms are the best method to protect against the transmission of HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).”
  • Measure B “protects performers working in porn. Performers in the Adult Film Industry deserve the same protections and enforcements from workplace hazards as employees in other industries.”
  • Measure B “protects your tax dollars, from being spent on costs for the Adult Industry. All costs of measure B will paid by fees on the industry.”
