The lovely Angelina Armani attended an OSHA meeting today where state legislators voted to establish a committee to explore the possibility of requiring porn industry performers to use condoms and to take other safety measures. The six-member California Division of Occupational Safety and Health standards board voted unanimously on the advice of staff to create an advisory committee to report back on whether to change state law to require safe-sex protections for adult-film actors and actresses.

The board listened to testimony from Los Angeles County public health experts and several current and former adult-film workers, including Darren James who tested HIV positive during the 2004 outbreak. He claims current industry STD testing practices acts as security blanket that actors mistakenly believe protects them from infection.
“You think you’re safe but you’re not; in between scenes, you don’t know what other actors are doing,” James told the board. He then turned to the crowd and said, “I’m living your nightmare every day, you don’t want to live what I’m going through now.”
Angelina Armani also spoke on behalf of the current performers in the industry and said that during the last two years she has appeared in many adult films, has been tested regularly for STDs and has never contracted a disease. She also said, “My industry has protected my safety and continues to protect the safety of other performers.”
So now that you kind know what is going on in this battle for condom usage in the industry, SUP69 wants to know how you feel about condom use in porn.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
