Draft of California bill would mandate porn stars wear protective eyewear like goggles during filming

California is already paying for state employees to monitor porn sets to make sure they follow the existing rules. Now they want to add more.

They porn studios have put together a PSA to point out how absolutely ridiculous these rules are (no nudity or anything, but it does use stereotypical porn music, so probably don't want to play it at work):

Is this really something anyone should be worried about regulating?

  • I think it is silly, but did make me laugh, maybe the porn industry will relocate to Utah now? I am not a big porn person, but would rent one to see porn stars wearing safety goggles!

  • LOL. I don't even know what to say. I'm literally laughing out loud.


    I mean, seriously. I guess people get what they vote for. They must have a perfectly operational government if they have time to devote to this issue. I mean, doesn't California have a lot of problems that are much more important to deal with that porn stars wearing safety goggles?


    The land of fruits and nuts.  So glad I don't live there anymore.

    According to the comments where I first saw the article, there's already a fetish community for that if you REALLY want to see it ;)

  • Safety goggles during porn?!? Talk about killing the mood!

    Well, someone is worried about regulating it, but I don't think that taxpayer money should be spent on this issue. CA has so much more to worry about that is more important that porn "artists" wearing safety goggles. It cracks me up to even type it. hahaha.

    Why not just ban porn? I mean, isn't that what it comes down to, making it so ridiculous that no one would pay to watch it, let alone pay to produce it?

    All that will eventually happen is that underground filming will occur and be slod under the table.
    Is there nothing better we can throw away tax dollars on? I know we have an abundance of government money, but really? (That was sarcasm, just incase anon doesn't recognize it)
