How the Light Gets In

My favorite analogy for this refusal of condom enforcement on porn sets is the butcher shop, although it’s tongue-in-cheek. We don’t allow the workers to handle raw meat without gloves on, so why should the people in porn be around bodily fluids without protection? Either the sex industry gets treated with the same standards of health and safety as every other (legitimate) job, or it needs to be abolished. And here is the dilemma: it can’t be treated like every other job. The pimps and pornographers and their supporters can talk a mad game about reducing stigma and the workers wanting to be taken seriously, but in reality they won’t stand for it. What matters to them is the bottom line.
Keep in mind also that the current system of porn is based on harm reduction and not harm prevention. Porn users do not want to see condoms being used. Consequently, they (men) will insist on not wearing condoms when they have sex."
