Ron Jeremy On Measure B: It's The 'Final Nail In The Coffin' For Suffering Porn Industry
Adult film actor Ron Jeremy trashed Los Angeles' new condom law for porn films, claiming that the voter-approved measure was the "final nail in the coffin" for the county's struggling porn industry.
Um, are all porn films filmed in LA? Go film in Hawaii.
R1. Ron Jeremy's swine affectation is not the point of the thread.
The topic is being porn performers being forced to wear condoms. They're suffering, goddammit. Ain't ya got no sympathy?
R2 almost all porns are filmed in the San Fernando Valley. Northridge, Chatsworth, Reseda. Hell, I know of a couple of upscale homes in Studio City that are rented out primarily for porn shoots.
And many porn companies are thinking of pulling up stakes and moving to Vegas. MUCH better tax situation there, plenty of available talent, etc.
LA's porn industry is a good chunk of tax money for the city. And we're idiots for passing Measure B and risking losing it.
R4,they film a lot of porn in Florida as well. The was enacted truing to stop the AIDS virus from spreading. Why did they even bother enacting this law if these losers don't care about getting infected? Let them be complete fools kill each other off over sex. What low life trash who would rather lose their lives than wear protection. I mentioned on another thread that sleaze ball James Deen dose not wear a condom when he dose his sexual routines, and he is furious over this law because he said he refuses to be forced to wear a condom.
Aside from this subject, supposedly James Deen is bisexual as well.
The number of actors infected with HIV on set in the last decade: zero.
The number of teenagers who have died playing football in the last decade: more than zero.
The number of teenagers who have died from heatstroke playing any outdoor high school sport in the last decade: more than zero.
The number of teenagers who have died cheerleading in the last decade: more than zero.
Are we going to make everything dangerous illegal, or are we just picking on an industry that is easy to persecute for political advantage?
You are wrong, R6. Marc Wallace infected a few on-set partners with HIV around 2003 or 2004. So did a performer known as Darren James (I think that was his name).
R6, Exchanging bodily fluids between two people in the same post as the lack of deaths as CHEERLEADING! is beyond ludicrous!
There was once a guy on DL who worked in the porn industry who answered questions about the porn industry just as a long we didn't guess who he was ,and he wanted to remain anonymous. He said many, many people in the porn industry are infected with AIDS,and many are psychologically screwed up. In fact he said he had AIDS but at that time he decided to work as an escort.
Yeah, R5, he might even be forced to get an actual job. The horror....
Y'all know that bitch is ugly as hell. He always looks like he smells like dookey and cologne.
Someone should've put the final nail in the coffin of Jeremy's porn career at least 20 years ago.
It's not just about whether the performers get AIDS. It's about the message they send.
No R7, regarding Marc Wallace you are wrong. His HIV announcement occurred in 1998.
Great to see the warthog taking a stand
Yeah well at least that nail will have a condom on it, to protect against AIDS and tetanus.
r14, if you're going to call names, he's the hedgehog, not the warthog.
He's a fat pig with an ugly dick.
And "James Deen" is a joke just by virtue of making a nonporn film with that Lohan bitch.
I don't understand how a supposedly Liberal state like California thinks it's okay to impose condom usage on people's sex lives. It is up to them whether or not they want to use them. It infringes their privacy and freedom of expression.
I hear some of the industry is coming to NY. No laws here.
How enforceable is the law? Isn't it just a ballot measure that the public voted on? Is it enforceable?
I voted NO on Measure B. To be honest, I don't give a fuck about whether someone wants to fuck with or without condoms, as long as you're a consenting adult. But how will this ever be enforced? Are they going to station a policeman at every porn shoot to monitor the fucking? Set up a task force to rent every single DVD and video stream that is released and check for condoms? It's beyond absurd and is nothing more than "feel good" legislation.
" I know of a couple of upscale homes in Studio City that are rented out primarily for porn shoots. "
A COUPLE? Try 25%, dear.

It's the customers who don't want them to wear protection
R18 It's not a California law, it's an L.A. County law.
Seriously, isn't there enough porn in the world to keep everyone masturbating happily for the next several thousand years? We need more?
Someone posted a link a few days ago to a porn video with Diesel Washington and some White guy. Diesel gets blown raw and then before he fucks the guy he puts on a condom. Didn't ruin it for me at all. It was different. I'm not used to seeing that but it was still hot and I busted a nut.
Quit yer whining.
Free internet porn is killing the industry. Nothing more, nothing less.
So, tell me why the voters should support the porn industry.
R18, it's the same "liberal" California which voted for Proposition 8.
No r29, it is the same CA that has determined that brass house keys are hazardous to your health.
Let it die, r27
Seriously, let it die, they've already filmed enough porn for any reasonable person. Just collect all you want for free on the internet.

Shooting in Vegas is illegal. New Hampshire is the only state besides California where shooting hard core pornography is legal.

Yes there are, but they aren't enforced.

No it doesn't. Construction workers have to wear hard hats, stuntmen have to comply with OSHA regulations and have insurance as well as most other industries. The No On Measure B campaign was terribly run and the people who spoke on behalf of it were uninformed idiots (mostly porn industry people).
The porn industry and prostitution work hand in hand, so if the L.A. sex industry is broken up over this, it's a big deal. It's probably more of a drain to California's economy to police it than it's worth. Besides, there's no reason in this day and age why porn production needs to be centralized.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
