Recently, I was a guest on KPCC’s AirTalk with Larry Mantle (8/30/13) – very exciting!!
KPCC is the Southern California affiliate of NPR, and I spoke about the state of the L.A. County adult industry post-Measure B. AVN‘s Mark Kernes and Wicked Pictures’ jessica drake were on the show with me.
Here’s what the folks at KPCC wrote up about the bit:
Back in November, voters passed Measure B, which required adult film performers throughout L.A. County to wear condoms during porn shoots and also get permits from the health department. The adult film industry tried to defeat the measure by arguing that it would hurt business and drive porn production out of LA. But voters disagreed and passed the measure by 57 percent. Earlier this month, a federal court defeated a lawsuit filed by two adult film studios, Vivid Entertainment and Califa Productions, and ruled that the requirement is constitutional.
How has the porn industry been affected in the months since measure B passed? Have adult video production companies closed up shop and moved out of LA? Or has porn production moved underground and continued without getting the required permits?
It’s a short conversation – just over 16 minutes long – and you can listen to it on the KPCC website right –> here. Enjoy!!
