ACTION! New Los Angeles ordinance likely to drive more porn industry producers to Las Vegas
Las Vegas Sun ^ | Tuesday, March 6, 2012 | 2 a.m. | By Joe Schoenmann

Angered by an ordinance requiring actors in pornographic productions to wear condoms, some in the adult industry are threatening to move their operations from the “pornucopia” of Los Angeles to Southern Nevada.

The news, first reported last month by the Los Angeles Times, has caused some to speculate on the industry’s future in Las Vegas, which is already seen by many insiders as a welcoming second home.

I would think distribution would be a problem since “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”.

Honestly I can’t say I disagree with the “industry” on this one. As long as it doesn’t injure anyone outside their chosen profession, they have every right to be stupid.

It’s called “Sin City” for a reason.

Randall Flagg will approve.

The old school porn film industry is dying.

Most porn being produced today is amateur porn where people post their own stuff on their own website for $$ or other sites.

Yes it’s porn, but I still see it as yet another government intrusion into somewhere that they have no business being.

I’m confused. Leftist freaks on the east coast are upset because of the lack of available of contraception, and those on the west coast are upset about the requirement to use it...

The sad part is that this will have one very bad consequence: it may hurt the entertainment industry in the Los Angeles area because many people who work “behind the camera” on adult films often end up working for the big movie studios—and this talent pool will be lost. Not to mention the potential for a lot of tax revenue lost to Los Angeles County and the state of California as the adult film industry moves to other states.

Because it's one of the few money making at $10 Billion per year (ie tax generating) industries in Los Angeles...:^)

the california business environment is so bad and univiting that even the sleaze industry has fled.

Eventually the only industry left in california will be the medical pot industry with potheads crossing the border for munchies.

Oddly enough, few porn stars have had any real success in Hollywood. Traci Lords had a few starring roles but never became a big star.

Well, not exactly.

There is always the State (and varius local)Legislature, who makes a tidy profit for themselves every year.

It makes more than 25 billion a year. I have acquaintances who work at Bluebird films in Vegas...the same guys who did those Star Trek XXX, Katwoman XXX parodies and the reason why they moved to Vegas was better work environment. Socal isn’t conducive for business and people here are just here because of the weather and lifestyle.

Besides, Nevada is known as an Obamacare exempt status if you move there...only if you don’t convert to Amish.

You need fewer actors and actresses in Nevada. You just need to put up some cameras inside the brothels.

A better question to ask is what businesses are not leaving California. The movie industry(porn and other) is leaving, most others have already left.

California is going bankrupt. Soon there will be no one left to support all the freeloaders and government employees.

how much of the industry is already gone?

heavy filming is done in canada.

disney fluff production is done in florida.

california is just committing a slow suicide.

nice weather is not enough to save the tax beast. (nor those absurd commercials)

The reason is quite simple. After Sandra Fluke spoke at the News Conference, (she did not Testify since it wasn't a real Committee hearing BTW), the Democrats in Sacramento decided to add a Fluke Tax on Condoms.

It is simply unaffordable when regular Condoms cost $5 each and the extra large ones go for $10.

They have to close that Deficit one way or another.

-——many people who work “behind the camera” on adult films——

The bill is a jobs creator. Every film crew will now need a rubber minder to dispense, observe, record usage and collect the used ones.

Does this mean the taxpayers will have to cover the cost of the condoms through ObamaCare?

Why bother with the costs of “porn actors and actresses”? Thanks to the NEA and other teacher unions, student behavior in unwatched rooms is likely to be suitable for the porn industry and the students are doing those things anyway. A bit of cash would always be appreciated by the Lil’ Darlins due to the high cost of recreational pharmaceuticals, Nikes, ad nauseam.

The educrats would turn a blind eye to the cameras recording the student behavior as they have avoided noticing the behavior for decades. Again, a bit of cash would be appreciated by the faculty, and for the same reasons.

So I missed a business opportunity when I was stationed in Las Vegas? Just Damn.

How exactly would such a law be enforced? Just curious.
