California Has Some Weird Safety Rules Proposed For Porn Actors

California has had a love/hate relationship with the porn industry. They don’t mind taking their tax revenue but they also don’t include its successes and job growth in their Chamber of Commerce literature. Their latest requirement for porn performers is a little creepy, even for most of the perverts who keep the industry afloat. Legislators want them to wear eye goggles. 

She doesn’t even do glasses fetish films.

California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health released a new 21-page draft of regulations for the sex film industry in the hopes of avoiding spreading diseases that can pass through bodily fluids. Unfortunately, bodily fluids are the porn industry’s bread and butter (try not to think about that analogy too long) so some of the performers are more than a little disturbed by the recommendations.

Niiiice.

Of course, they include requirements such as using condoms and producers paying for medical testing for their performers. The porn stars, however, say that one in particular goes too far: the wearing of protective eye gear.  One section of the draft include “Personal Protective Equipment” states that performers must wear “barrier protection for the eyes” and may not permit “ejaculation onto the employee’s eyes.” The new rules also states that if “work activities may expose the employee’s eyes” to certain, um, activities, “the employer shall provide condoms or other suitable barrier protection.” What kind of porn are these regulators watching and are they registered as sex offenders? 

Are you wearing safety goggles or are you just happy to see me?

Thanks to the DOSH, we never would have considered goggles to be a piece of erotic equipment until now. The only way goggles would work in a porn movie is if the producers is trying to make a porn parody of “SeaQuest DSV” and frankly, that show wasn’t worth doing a porn parody of when it was actually on the air back in the 90s.
