Los Angeles County’s quest to push all film and television production out of Southern California got a boost Tuesday night with the passage of Measure B, the controversial ballot measure requiring condoms for adult film shoots. Over the years, Hollywood studios have moved their productions to cheaper pastures, and with the passage of Measure B, the porn industry may follow suit, en masse.

The industry naturally lobbied hard against Measure B, citing their strict STD testing standards and the fact that nobody actually likes safe sex porn — previous ventures into condom-laced productions led to a significant drop in sales. When asked if they would purchase porn with actors using condoms, one man everyone said “people still pay for porn”?
