WTF News: Porn Stars Will be Required to Wear Protective Goggles?

The latest shake up in the porn industry with several pornstars contracting HIV is forcing the industry to take a closer look at how its STD screenings are handled. Draft regulations are being considered by the state of California that would mandate condom use on shoots, and that is understandable. However, Salon reports that another extension of the draft also prohibits ejaculation onto the genitals, mouth or eyes, and instructs employers to provide performers with protective eyewear to avoid ocular contact with semen.

Via Salon:

Here’s the thing, though: Condoms, and other barrier methods, are technically already required in porn, both during penetrative and oral sex, according to Deborah Gold, Cal/OSHA’s deputy chief for health. So too is eye protection from semen and other bodily fluids. If you’ve ever watched a porn you probably have a sense of just how relatively rarely these requirements are enforced. If instituted, these draft guidelines would actually offer a trial period in which an exception is made for the barrier method requirement during oral sex. (As of 2018, the exemption would be reconsidered and could either end or be extended.)

Regardless, some porn insiders are unhappy with the draft rules, which were initially leaked on an industry blog that is vocally supportive of a condom mandate. Peter Acworth, CEO of the fetish site Kink.com, tells me that the draft regulations “basically criminalize the production of porn” in California. In fact, because of these draft guidelines and AB640, he’s considering selling the Armory, Kink’s infamous San Francisco porn palace. If these Cal/OSHA guidelines are instituted, he says Kink will “have to invest in a warehouse in Nevada or Europe” for production. If that happens, the Armory will likely have to go — and, he says, so will adult productions in California.

In response, Gold said, “The fact is there is a rule right now that they’re supposed to be complying with.” She added that these draft guidelines are an attempt to tailor existing workplace-safety rules relating to blood-borne pathogens specifically to the adult industry.

The draft guidelines do not require the regular STD testing currently instituted by the industry. It does, however, call for employers to provide hepatitis B, hepatitis A and human papillomavirus vaccines to performers. It additionally requires that, in cases of potential STI exposure, porn studios “provide for post-exposure prophylaxis … when medically indicated,” as well as counseling. The 21-page document suggests several other regulatory changes, including cleanup requirements, like providing “plastic coverings or other disposable materials to facilitate cleaning of the work area.”

Can you imagine porn with goggles on? Would you still watch or would the industry tank?

      Condoms prevent STD’s. They require condoms therefore their covered for STD prevention

        What if the condom breaks? STD testing is absolutely a must in
        the industry. Both condoms and testing are good for the industry. The
        infection spreads that have happened recently are due to people in the industry contracting the infection outside of the industry and not on set infections as well as people altering their testing results. If the industry is able to go back to a single facility where the result for all test can be compiled and accessible to the production team (ie. directors and performs), that will help as well. The goggles mandate is absolutely ridiculous and they are just trying to regulate the porn industry out of California.

      • Why not

        Yet they still get stds………..
