This is mind-boggling. The idea that something so shady and risky can be regulated is odd. Of course, the people who work in that industry had no idea that it was risky business. Further, they themselves have no personal “duty to combat an acknowledged epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases stemming from production of hardcore pornography.” :rolleyes:
"California: Lawsuit Over Regulation in Pornography
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, an advocacy group in Los Angeles, filed a lawsuit against county health officials, accusing them of failing to regulate condom use in the pornography industry to protect actors and actresses from contracting H.I.V. and other diseases. The lawsuit, filed in Superior Court, comes one month after a pornographic actress in Los Angeles said she had contracted H.I.V. Health officials have since released data showing 18 positive H.I.V. tests in the industry and thousands of other sexually transmitted disease infections since 2004. County officials should “require condom use in the production of pornography,” according to a statement released by the foundation, and have a “duty to combat an acknowledged epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases stemming from production of hardcore pornography” in Los Angeles.
