California’s Battle Over Bareback Porn Could End This Month

On Election Day 2016, the PrEP-phobic AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) lost their fight for Proposition 60, a law which would have banned condomless porn production throughout California. Their support for Prop 60 stemmed in part from a 1992 law requiring California’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (Cal/OSHA) ensuring workplace safeguards against bloodborne pathogens.

The 1992 law had medical settings in mind rather than porn sets, and it didn’t take into account the advent of pre-exposure prophylactics (PrEP) or the porn industry’s regular testing of actors. Even still, there’s no clear regulations governing the state’s porn industry. To clear all that up, the AHF, Cal/OSHA and bareback porn producers will meet on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 to discuss it.

It’s a monumental meeting with political rivals on opposite sites of Cal/OSHA’s table, and it could set the state’s rules on bareback porn for decades to cum. (See what we did there?).
