'No on B' Press Conference, Rally Set for Saturday
CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Adult performers and industry personalities plan to demonstrate their opposition to L.A. County Measure B with a press conference and demonstration on Nov. 3.
The press conference will take place at an adult production studio in Canoga Park, California that is available upon request from the organizers. A rally will follow.
Performers planning to attend include Alex Chance, Abby Cross, Shay Fox, Tara Lynn Foxx, Jessica Jaymes, Kagney Linn Karter, Keiran Lee, Tony Martinez, Alexis Monroe, Natasha Star, Alison Tyler, Heather Vahn, Taylor Wane and Prince Yahshua.
Industry notables include attorney Michael Fattorosi, Michael Whiteacre, Tod Hunter, photographer Rick, and director Mo.
"Proponents of Measure B would like you to think that it's just about using condoms in porn, but that's not true," organizer and industry blogger Tod Hunter said. "If this passes, adult content will have to be shot under emergency room protocols. The same rules that protect an ER nurse from the spurting blood of a gunshot victim will apply to professional adult performers — even husbands and wives when they are working together. And producers will have to pay extra for filming permits to pay for inspections of their sets. Measure B is a declaration of war against the adult industry, an attempt to shut it down by smothering it in bureaucratic red tape."
"Everybody in the adult industry is doing what we can to defeat this measure," LA Porn Tours' Benjamin Free added. "I got a bus, and we're taking it to the streets. The performers are looking forward to the demonstration.”
“I believe we performers should have the choice whether to use condoms or not," performer Alex Chance said. "We shouldn’t be forced into doing things with our bodies that we do not want to do."
Bus transport for the event has been arranged by the organizers of LA Porn Tours.
