Nanny State

Reason.tv: LA Forces Condoms onto Porn Actors! (Nanny of the Month, Jan 2012)

|

This month's killjoys are bent on making the Big Apple dry (or not?), and banning electronic (a.k.a. "fake") cigarettes from public places (wait, isn't the anti-smoking movement supposed to help addicts kick the habit?).

But the new year's top slot goes to the City of Angels mayor who's cracking down on those naughty devils in the adult film industry by mandating that actors wear condoms (what could possibly go wrong!).

Presenting Reason.tv's Nanny of the Month for January 2012: Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa!

Approximately 1.22 minutes.

"Nanny of the Month" is written and produced by Ted Balaker. Opening animation by Meredith Bragg.

  1. First!

    1. Bi or want to find people having the same sexual orientation?—datebi*cO’m— is a safe and free site for you.

  2. Look for creative ways to use condoms in porn…after-the-fact

    1. so are you advocating developing a market for used condoms?

    2. Actually she makes a good point. Do they specify that the condom must be worn on the penis? Or could they put it on like a glove and still go bareback?

  3. The dwarf actors will wear condominiums.

  4. Is there a chance the track could bend?

    1. Not on your life my Hindu friend!

      1. [Solemnly] The ring came off my pudding can.

        1. Excuse me while I slip on something a little more comfortable.

        2. Use my pen knife my good man!

  5. So, what about the Creampie genre? Potentially millions of California women are going to lose their jobs as filmmakers move to states like Colorado, Arkansas, or West Virginia, which allow women to take hot loads of gooey cum in their snatches.

    Regulations, people!

  6. What the fuck could possibly have compelled the LA council to pass this legislation? It’s not like they actually give a shit about actor safety. Did the condom industry buy them? I just don’t get it. It’ll drive all the porn producers right out of LA county. Unless that in itself is the point, but if so, why now?

    1. The illusion of power. Or the illusion that they’re doing something. Pick one.

    2. It’s not like they actually give a shit about actor safety.

      Hey now. The stated intention is to prevent the spread of disease.
      Do you really doubt their noble intentions?

      I just don’t get it. It’ll drive all the porn producers right out of LA county.

      Any unintended consequences will be exactly that: unintended.

      1. Foreseeable consequences are not unintended.

    3. Maybe one of the bigger studios already mandates condom use, and said studio lobbied to get the law passed in order to go after smaller competition?

      That’s the way this stuff usually works in other industries.

    4. I am guessing they think that whoever watches it will be like, “Oh look, John wears one, and he is my role model, so I’ll wear one too!”

      1. This. And if you haven’t lived in SF/LA you can’t possibly fathom exactly how deep this thought process runs, not just among the ruling class but among people who really, really want to be ruled.

    5. Las Vegas seems like as good a home as any.

    6. I just don’t get it. It’ll drive all the porn producers right out of LA county. Unless that in itself is the point, but if so, why now?

      L.A. is a place for families!

    7. What the fuck could possibly have compelled the LA council to pass this legislation?

      It’s for the kids. Seriously.

      It’s long been known that use of condoms in the current generation of porn stars can often cause more harm than good. The widespread use of viagra and the rising levels of physical fitness make pornos today vastly different from the those made in the past. They can spend all day setting up different angles, and the latex can cause much greater amounts of vaginal and rectal tearing, which in turn actually increases the possibility of infection. It’s not about the actor’s safety, it’s “for the children”, so the precious little dears don’t try to imitate the condomless fucking they see on screen.

    8. It’s called California Puritanism. It is making their number one industry – entertainment – unentertaining.

  7. From the article on condoms:

    http://healthland.time.com/201…..z1l9cwAmGu

    “The law will require porn filmmakers to pay a fee, which will then be used to pay for surprise inspections on sets.”

    HOW DO I GET THIS JOB?!?

    1. OT: Researchers suggest minimum age of 17 for candy.

      Fucking candy.

      If the FDA starts regulating my goddamn pepsi, somebody’s going to get shot.

      1. They outlawed what has been used for a century in cartoons as the symbol for a good idea.

        There’s nothing we won’t let them do.

      2. “OT: Researchers suggest minimum age of 17 for candy.”

        Did you ever see the end of Bioshock? Yeah, that.

  8. Just remember, Democrats are the party of sexual freedom.

    1. At least they’re not the part of christfags.

      1. They’re worse

      2. Shriek, it is the exact same motivation….
        Candy, screwing, smoking…people are enjoying themselves and should be punished.

        1. Spoof. Shrike is off his christfag kick.

  9. What the fuck could possibly have compelled the LA council to pass this legislation?

    Do you know any assholes who push extra buttons on the elevator, pretend to be deaf at the drive thru, or turn off the lights on their way out of public restrooms, just to “fuck with people” they never even see getting fucked with? Just to know they did it?

    Local politicians are those assholes, with bodyguards.

  10. Also, fuck California.

    As long as you’re wearing a condom, of course.

  11. …and if you’re using, like, a broom handle or a cigar as a surrogate penis, does THAT have to be “sheathed”, as it were? Or can you go pretend bareback if you’re porking a woman with actual pork sausage or a dildo or whatever.

    Jess Askin’…

    1. Shouldn’t you be out riding? I’m waiting to get off work… fucking 70 degrees and sunny, gonna make my way around the state today.

  12. “LA Forces Condoms onto Porn Actors!”

    Been a long time since I’ve heard about a new fetish.

    But 90 minutes of watching someone having condums forced onto their cock (NTTAWWT) just doesn’t do it for me.

    Maybe it’s for the ladies.

  13. OK, you have to admit dude that makes a LOT of sense man.

  14. Who-known-how-many articles about a city government forcing certain employers to use condoms, but what about the federal government requiring all employee health plans to cover birth control?

    Is it a cosmotarian thing?

  15. I think the porn industry needs to show some spunk.

  16. But the new year’s top slot goes to the City of Angels mayor who’s cracking down on those naughty devils in the adult film industry by mandating that actors wear condoms (what could possibly go wrong!).

    They actually did this? For reals?

    I remember back in the 90s a woman was on a local talk show railing against the fact that grocery stores were issuing cards which tracked your purchases. Her complaint centered around the idea that government could get hold of that data and penalize your for your eating habits.

    At the time I thought her fears were way overblown…

  17. Mirabell has got her very own recipe for her perfect figure. The only thing she eats is soup. It works just fine for her.

    Her diet is only thing that she is sparing about. With everything else she goes all out for maximum pleasure. She adores being in what she sees as a man’s world. And what kind of a world would that be without gorgeous women? For her it means fast cars and sports of all kinds.

    Mirabell studies Economics in Slovakia. It’s a very practical subject for this 22 year old with a mature outlook. Her dream is that one day she will have her own fashion business. She is preparing for that by gathering ideas while she travels. India is her special favourite. It’s an inspiration to her.

    Take this economist’s word for it. The upturn has begun.

  18. Um… this tops that:

    1. Well, shit… you gotta pay to read it. Fuckity fuck fuck.

      Here’s another link, if you really want to read some stoopid:

      http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/01/…..index.html

  19. What pricks!

  20. Next thing they will be requiring hard hats at construction sites. It’s not like these people can pick up deadly diseases or something.

    1. I really hope MD doesn’t stand for doctor, seeing as how you have no idea what you’re talking about.

  21. Yesterday = Hollywood
    Tomorrow = Bollywood

  22. Las Vegas is probably gearing up to welcome the porn industry. Mayor Tony (I wonder if he used condoms when he was having his affaiirs?) and his Council cronies don’t care a bit about the porn actor’s health. Their only concern is that part of LA has become the porn capitol of the world.
