Porn Stars Rally Against Condoms
Only in L.A. will you find hot young women begging for a condom-free experience.
It's true. Some of Porn Valley's top performers are rallying against a measure that will be on the November ballot in Los Angeles County: Measure B would at least attempt to enforce condom use on adult video sets.
According to organizers behind the "Vote No on Measure B" campaign ...
... performers from top porn agencies Spiegler Girls, OC Modeling and Digital Playground will sign limited edition t-shirts that express their, er, distaste for condoms.
According to an industry source, participating stars will include Kayden Kross, Teagan Presley, Jessie Andrews, Skin Diamond, Christy Canyon, Kiki Daire and more.
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation this week announced it's launching its yes-on-B campaign with a series of ads on MSNBC, Fox News and elsewhere locally.
The group has been on a years-long campaign to get the porn industry to use condoms and was successful in forcing the L.A. City Council to enact a mandatory prophylactics rule for on-location adult video productions in town.
The county rule would require porn shoots in most parts of greater L.A. to obtain massage parlor-type permits and ensure condom use.
The industry has rallied against such efforts, saying that consumers won't buy condom porn, that its monthly STD testing of performers works, and that it would violate porn stars' freedom to express themselves sans protection.
The website The Real Porn Wiki Leaks yesterday announced that it is organizing the "No on Measure B" campaign.

The t-shirts will cost $20 a piece, with at least some of the revenues going toward an advertising war chest for the No side. Signed shirts will be $30 and "personalized" ones will be $40.
Adult Wiki Media founder Sean Tompkins warns that, while the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has millions it could spend on its ads, the porn stars have a huge following of millions via social media:
If all those girls use social media -- with Twitter there's a million people that they reach out to every day. [AHF chief Michael] Weinstein has money, but these girls actually talk to the people.
