It's hard to believe that a porn star would sleep with other porn stars without protection, but in an industry created to turn people on, some directors think it's sexier for the viewer. Upset with the dangers, an AIDS advocacy group filed complaints against 16 production companies with the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, alleging that the practice amounts to unsafe behavior in a workplace.
US law already requires porn stars to prove that they have tested negative for HIV and other STDs within 30 days of filming, but the AIDS Healthcare Foundation wants to see a policy that requires condoms.
Some in the business say that the porn industry would probably leave California if condoms became the law, and Hustler publisher Larry Flynt thinks the AIDS group doesn't understand porn. He says, "people who enjoy viewing adult films do not want to see people using condoms." Do you agree?
