Thoughts on Measure B

Pipedream Products Pipedream Products
As Election Day draws near, Los Angeles county residents will, for the first time, find our presidential candidates accompanied by porn! We here at Pipedream are proud to support the Free Speech Coalition in its fight against Measure B, the unconstitutional initiative dubbed as the “Con-Dumb Law”. Pipedream CEO Nick Orlandino explains, "Our company has always been a supporter, partner, and friend to the adult entertainment industry, and we will do everything we can to prevent this unmerited law from being passed."

If Measure B is passed, millions of taxpayer dollars will be recklessly spent paying inspectors to watch adult productions in the area, ensuring the use of condoms, rubber gloves, goggles, and lab coats. We face the loss of over 10,000 jobs with the impending relocation of adult studios and other companies. And though this measure is masked with the idea that it's here to help sex workers, Tristan Taormino explains in her Huffington Post article that "passing Measure B will not make workers safer nor will it help stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections... This measure was developed without input from adult industry professionals and does not reflect actual working conditions, realistic risk assessment, or the opinions of the people it is supposedly designed to protect.”

We are always open to hearing all opinions, whether for or against, respectively. So what are your thoughts?

I tend to believe people in the industry know more about the nature of their work than legislators. And Tristan Taormino is pretty awesome and intelligent so I would consider her a much better source of info than some LA city council member.

I feel this is a move by the LA city councle to push the industry out of their county. Would not lead to less STD's.

Personally think it is ridiculous, and surprised that it passed. The government has no authority to mandate anything in this context.

I posted on this on another forum. I was shocked that such a law was even in existence, passed or not. The fact that it passed horrifies me. I'm sure it won't stop here.

I'm surprised people were willing to spend government money on inspectors. I don't think there was much of a need in the industry to be regulated by the government. I heard the last time anyone tested positive for HIV was back in 2004, which tells me the industry is keeping itself safer than the government could.
