Another Unintended Consequence of Gov Intervention (Porn Related)



quote:

Nearly 90% of porn is American-made, and U.S. Internet porn sites generated $2.84 billion in revenue in 2006, according to Good magazine. Sex sells so much, in fact, that more than 260 new sex sites reportedly go online daily -- with about $89 spent every second on pornography.

For decades, Los Angeles County has been home to the U.S. porn industry. But that changed last November, when county voters approved a mandate requiring porn actors to wear condoms during filming. The new law was intended to combat the spread of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases -- but it's having an unexpected side effect.

Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Daily News noted that applications for filming permits from the adult film industry dropped dramatically in L.A. County -- from an average of about 500 permits annually to just two so far this year.

"Most production companies have ceased shooting in L.A. County," Diane Duke, the chief executive officer of the Free Speech Coalition, an adult film trade organization, told the newspaper. "They have other options in other states and communities."


quote:

"It's really disturbing," Tim Gray, a 56-year-old father of four, told the Times. "We were eating dinner, and we heard these loud sounds outside, like something really bad had happened. I went outside and heard, well, the typical sounds you'd hear in a porn movie. It was echoing all over the neighborhood. Later I asked my daughter if she heard it. She said, 'Yeah, I was doing my homework, and I just turned up the music to drown it out.'"

Reminds me of the Parks and Recreation episode on government bailouts.

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

How the porn industry makes so much money is beyond me when everyone has access to the internet these days.

But sucking the cum out of a used condom is still kosher

Yep.

I'm shocked there still is a porn industry considering I honestly don't know why someone would purchase porn.
