Adult Industry ‘Fig Leaf' Doesn't Cover Much, says AHF
Date:12/18/2009

y Engeran-Cordova, Director, AHF Public Health Division. “More and more, performers are being asked to participate in higher risk activities such as double and triple penetration—activities that increase risk of exposure to disease present in body fluids. What is being presented in this plan falls appallingly short of complying with Cal/OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard designed to protect workers from exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials at a California worksite. Washing the affected areas afterwards with sanitary wipes is a fine way to prevent the spread of the common cold. But, as a measure to prevent the transmission of STDs, including HIV, it is laughable.”

For several years, AHF has advocated for legislation require condoms in adult films produced in California in order to protect performers and the public health. The ongoing campaign has gained considerable momentum in recent months after it was reported in June that an actress working in the adult film industry had tested positive for HIV.

Yesterday, AHF filed a petition with the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Cal/OSHA) seeking an amendment to California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Section 5193 “Bloodborne Pathogens” to clarify protections for workers in the adult film industry and to explicitly include a condom requirement. AHF efforts during this past year have also included filing sixteen worker-safety complaints with Cal/OSHA over the lack of condom use in adult films made in California and a lawsuit against the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) to require condom use in the production of pornography.

These latest actions have been prompted by an ongoing epidemic
