Adult Films Could Leave the Valley Beginning March 5

Many producers oppose new health rules requiring condom use during production.

At least 5 percent of on-location shoots in the Valley are for adult films, reports Rong-Gong Lin II in this morning's Los Angeles Times.

But much of that legal, pornographic film production could leave Chatsworth and Los Angeles starting March 5 when new health regulations will require porn performers to wear condoms while on location. Producers say customers of their films don't want to see that.

The report continues:

"It's unclear how much money the city would give up if porn producers began leaving. Film L.A., the nonprofit that manages permits, estimates that it issues under 500 a year to adult film companies wanting to shoot on location. Some filmmakers, however, may not bother asking for permits. A survey found that one of the top 10 sites for on-location filming in Los Angeles in 2010 was a Chatsworth porn studio.

"In the most recent study, local economists estimated a decade ago — before the recession — that the industry generated $4 billion in sales and provided 10,000 to 20,000 jobs annually to actors, makeup artists, camera crews, caterers and the like."

Yes Porn Film Productions should go to Canada (the Run-Away Productions Base Camp). And in return we need real Hollywood movies back to LA .

I don't think any government agency has a right to make them wear condoms - it's ridiculous and none of their business.

We will not get that either - our loss - government win...
