We've seen them used and not used in porn and it doesn't phase us either way. I guess if I was younger and not in a monogamous relationship it might be a nice reminder to use them.

I would think this is an area for occupational health and safety regulation of the industry. I am not sure what regulation there is already to protect workers in different countries, but at very least there should be some regulations that require a condom be used or both the actors and actresses are tested and confirmed to be STI free if they wish to do the scene without one.
I do notice though from a good portion of the porn industry there are a remarkably low number of STIs reported. This may indicate these regulations already exist or that the industry has taken the initiative to regulate themselves.

I hate seeing condoms in porn. I get the safety arguments, but I watch porn for the fantasy. Why do we watch action/adventure movies, where the characters perform all sorts of stunts we would never try in real life? Stuntmen/stuntwomen routinely ...
When stuntmen and stuntwomen get injured on set, do they risk spreading their injuries to the people they work with?

By protecting yourself, you are keeping others out of harm's way.

It should be used in all porn.

I think that if either actor wants to use one it should be done, no questions asked.

I find it difficult to enjoy porn if I *don't* see condoms in use. I just can't get past "omg, what are you doing!" to enjoy the action. I think having all porn stars use them, all the time, could go a long way toward making them sexy and normative, thus increasing condom usage. Perhaps especially in countries and communities where health advocates are having difficulty convincing men it is "manly" to use a condom.

I think condoms should be compulsory.

Keep it clean and disease free is the best.

Porn workers should be required to show their results before working, and I think safe sex is sexy.

I feel like seeing condoms in porn will subconsciously remind us to wear condoms... is that an off-thought or am I kind of right?

I think condom use should be mandatory because I think it would be too much effort to have to make sure both the man and the woman in the video want it and to deal with it if one of them didn't want to wear one.

Condoms for sex during porn should NOT be forced. Porno shoots take a LONG time, and the constant rubbing of a condom on the anus or the vagina can leave the areas sore, inflamed, and rubbed raw, which makes it even more likely that HIV or other diseases can be passed over, especially since pornstars don't just have on-set sex. They can have other sex, without condoms, and if their bits are irritated and raw from forced condom use, it's not good.

In regular sex, sure, it cuts down on the possibility of diseases spreading. But for porn workers, it actually ups it.

People use the pullout method in porno to prevent the spread of diseases, which is actually safer considering.

As to if I like seeing condoms in porn or not, I really don't. I'm all about the bareback and the cream pies; I can't really watch porn that does have condoms unless it's for fun and not masturbation.

I think they should definitely be used, unless both sides agree to not use them.

I think condoms should be strongly recommended, but you can't force people to do things they don't want to do, so it should be left to the actor(s)/actress(es) to decide.

Condoms don't bother me at all when watching porn.

Condoms are an important part of safe sex practice. If the porn industry were to incorporate the use of them more often, I definitely think we'd see a rise in usage. And that's responsible, frankly. Condom use all boils down to the individual participants, of course, but the porn industry is where a lot of teenagers get their sex education (which is an issue in and of itself), and should demonstrate safer sex practices.

With that said, depicting condom usage in pornography doesn't turn me off or on. However, consent and responsibility is sexy as fuck, so I'm down to have every scene I watch include one star asking another if they have a condom.

Also, the porn industry has the power to make condoms sexy! We hear all of this stuff about how they take away sensations for both parties and, while that may be true, it discourages people from using them. If more porn showed condoms being used, people would start using them more. And if more porn showed their female stars applying a condom with their mouth? Damn, we'd have condom fetishes starting up!

Plain and simple, condom use should be required in pornography from professional producers.

Safety first, I think condom use in porn is a good thing. Promoting safe sex is never a bad thing, if some people aren't in to that they can watch something that doesn't involve condoms. I would assume that the stars of the film have been tested and everything is safe but you never know...

Although I think it's important for actors in porn to use condoms all the time because it promotes safe sex. I also have to admit that it turns me off a little bit, but not enough to make me stop watching.

Sarah Sloane's article is melodramatic and bias at the very least.

Before viewing porn and following performer blogs, I would have sided with Los Angelas'
condom mandate- and probably this article. However, after researching the topic and discussing it with members of the porn industry, I strongly disagree with the mandate. It was a political decision based on money and was an effort to strong-arm porn production out of Los Angelas.

I love seeing condoms in porn! I'm not sure how well a mandate for their use would work - I think it's a nice idea, but I feel like it wouldn't be easy to enforce at all.
