california block warning Several porn websites are alerting their viewers living in California that they could be blocked from the state should Proposition 60 be accepted in a public ballot next month.Proposition 60 is measure proposed by anti-porn campaigners that would require adult performers to use condoms for all videos made in the state. If they don’t, the law would allow any citizen in the state to sue producers and distributors of prophylactic-lacking porn.

In protest, popular sites Vivid, Evil Angel and Kink, among others, have pop-ups urging visitors with California IP addresses to vote no on the proposition come election day. If it passes, some are considering blocking those users entirely to protect themselves from litigation.

Prop 60 is sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and operates much like Los Angeles’ Measure B initiative passed in 2012, but would apply to the entire state.

The adult industry is opposed to it as there exists considerable customer resistance to condom protected porn. The existing adult trade policy of continuous testing of performers has kept AIDS infections to extraordinarily low numbers in the last few years and so the new law proposal is only of benefit to anti-porn activists. Performers would be placed in more danger by such a new law as commercial pressures will surely drive sections of the industry underground and outside of the testing regime.

The proposed law also has a nasty requirement for performers to be identified with real world names so exposing studios and actors/actresses to harassment by stalkers, trolls and anti-porn activists.
