CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Aurora Snow Isnt Alone Jenna Haze Supports Condoms In Porn

 

My email has indicated that at least among female performers this issue is MUCH closer than it appears.  You have a few vocal porn chicks doing Fabians bidding, and it is Fabians bidding, 75%  of the money to fight this fight has come directly from Manwin, per their own numbers, but there are an awful lot of very well known porn girls who agree with Aurora Snow and are just staying quietly in the background but are going to vote Yes on Measure B.

As one girl said in her email she is tired of getting treated for Chlamydia or Gonorrhea every couple of months because these guys will fuck anything off set, including each other.   She said there is no respect at all for their fellow performers.

When asked about it in an interview in Tampa with Creative Loafing a while back Jenna Haze said:

” It’s the best thing for us to go condoms only and have everyone tested. Some people are talking about making it condoms only and not having people tested. That’s just stupid. Condoms aren’t a big deal. Some think condoms will be bad for sales, and as a company owner, it may be bad at first, but if all of the companies are using condoms and that’s the only porn out there, people are still going to watch it. No one is going to stop watching porn just because of condoms. And me personally as a porn fan, I’d rather watch two people that I know are being safe than watch two people and think, ‘Wow, I wonder if they’re going to contract HIV?’

Another performer said “I don’t need the FSC telling me we are below the national STD rate, that’s bullshit, I know how often I get the calls telling me I may have been exposed.   I am voting Yes for condoms.

Now admitted I do also get emails from those who believe that forcing condom use is an invasion on their right to choose but my point is that if you are inside the biz it seems like most performers do not support Measure B but that perception is almost certainly wrong.  Even if you look at the attendees of the fundraisers and anti B rallies the number of performers present are very small relative to the total number of performers.

Polls still show passage of measure B by a pretty wide margin.
