The only difference between a porn star and a prostitute is that one is being filmed.If regular prostitution was legal I am sure the government would be requiring males to wear a condom so why should a male porn star be any different.

Why the hell do we need government involved at all should be the question.

Because you're too stupid to wear a condom?

It already is a form of assault...

It's not about that.
When there are actors willing to go without protection, and when it's legal that they do so, actors who insist on protection will not be able to find work.
They are coerced into having unprotected sex, because there is not a market for actors who have protected sex... or if there is it's a very small niche market.
Considering that most of the women in porn are between eighteen and twenty-one years old, yes, I do support such a law. They're just kids, really, and given a choice of course most of them would prefer to protect themselves. But they are not currently given a choice by the industry.

And that's pretty much the difference we have. YOU want to control what I can do due to your preconceived notion that you know better than I do how to live my life.

You in your ever prescient knowledge of how things work have decided to take it upon yourself to tell me how I need to have sex. What insurance I need to have. What kind of car to drive. And on and on.

How about you just STFU and leave me alone? I'm not telling you how to live your life because I don't care how you do it. Why do you feel the need to save me from me? I would rather live life without you. I don't really give a sh*t what your opinion is.

Why should they?
They have a right to work in adult film if they want to, and they have a right to safe workplace conditions like everybody else who works in a legal industry.

Seriously? You're thinking you will through government intervention and somehow create a new porn market using condoms?
