AIDS Group Files Complaint Against Larry Flynt Over Condom-less Porn

AIDS activists have filed a workplace safety complaint against Hustler honcho Larry Flynt over the amount of condom-less sex in all of his skin flicks. On Thursday, activists descended upon Los Angeles’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health office with 100 DVDs to show that only one scene in one porno showed a performer using a condom. Condoms, of course, help protect against the spread of HIV.Michael Klein, the president of Larry Flynt Productions, is unswayed, saying in a statement: “We won’t budge when it comes to condomless productions. That’s what the consumer wants, and we deliver it.” Klein also said that all Flynt’s performers are tested for HIV 30 days before filming, per federal law.

But it’s not just pornographers who balk at the idea of wrapping it up: porn star/feminist sex educator Nina Hartley told Salon.com’s Broadsheet blogger, Tracy Clark-Flory, that some performers would hate to have to wear condoms. “For the women, there are just four words: rubber rash/friction burn.” Say no more, we understand!

Should porn stars be legally required to wear condoms? Or is the HIV testing requirement enough?
