Porn Studios Are Skirting Condom Law By Filming Outside Of L.A. County

According the Los Angeles Times, L.A. County has seen a drop in permit requests to shoot adult films within county lines. The news comes out of the wake of a recent law requiring condoms to be used on all pornographic shoots. The government normally oversees 500 permit requests a year. At this point in time, only two have been approved.

Apparently, the ban of bareback porn has pushed studios to film in nearby locations including Ventura County where there has been a steep increase in “moans and groans” sound complaints.

“It’s really disturbing,” said Tim Gray, a 56-year-old father of four. “We were eating dinner and we heard these loud sounds outside, like something really bad had happened. I went outside and heard, well, the typical sounds you’d hear in a porn movie. It was echoing all over the neighborhood. Later I asked my daughter if she heard it. She said, ‘Yeah, I was doing my homework and I just turned up the music to drown it out.'”

Ventura and other surrounding counties are currently trying to figure out how to deal with the increase permit requests and film shoots. Not only are the local governments trying to figure out how to manage the sounds of sex echoing in the valley but also the issue of condom usage.

“We received three phone calls in March inquiring about permits, and one asked if we had a condom ordinance,” said Camarillo City Atty. Brian Pierik.

While officials in the article maintain that there is no clear evidence that studios are leaving L.A. County because of the condom law, it’s evident that studios are looking for other options.
