Leftists Want Porn Stars To Wear Goggles





Goggles

Big government leftists claim that their intrusive policies exist to make our society safer. Inevitably, though, limited regulation gives way to an absurd level of bureaucratic overreach.

Such is the case with lawmakers in California dealing with the pornography industry.

Voters signed on to a bill last year that would require actors in the genre to wear prophylactics while performing sex acts. Unsatisfied by that victory, legislators in the deep blue state now want to take government intervention to an outrageous level.

According to a recently proposed amendment, pornographic actors would be required to wear safety goggles while “if contact of the eyes with OPIM-STI is reasonably anticipated….”

For the sake of context, OPIM-STI is a polite reference to any number of bodily fluids or waste.

Furthermore, gloves would be required when industry employees handle “contaminated” clothing.

What started as an ostensible effort to reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases quickly escalated to a bureaucratic boondoggle.

While this article is hardly an endorsement of the porn industry, those who make their living in it obviously understand the inherent risk. Forcing actors to wear hazmat suits to film a scene goes far beyond the expectations most people have for their representatives.

A number of prominent stars, including James Deen, have spoken out decisively against this and other government mandates. Deen said he predicts that much of the industry “will most likely move production out of Los Angeles and take out tax money with us.”

He made that prophetic statement after the initial bill passed; and, in the intervening months, permits for pornographic productions in the city have dropped by more than 99 percent.

Many in the industry take their own precautions to avoid associated dangers and, at the end of the day, it should be the right of American citizens to decide what level of risk they are willing to take.

Ironically, leftists are the first to uphold a woman’s right to choose what to do with “her body” when it involves ripping a murdered child out of her womb. The same cannot be said when the same woman wants to engage in a consensual act on camera.

    Next these idiots will want all young men and women engaging in sex to wear goggles.I agree some of those democrappy women should wear masks not just goggles.People like Diane Feinshit, Hitlary Clinton, Maxine Watters, Poopalosi and the other dem women could make a good erection fizzle fast no goggles needed.
