On Election Day 2016, the PrEP-phobic AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) lost its fight for Proposition 60, a law that would have banned condomless porn production throughout California. The organization’s support for Prop 60 stemmed in part from a 1992 law requiring California’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (Cal/OSHA) to ensure workplace safeguards against bloodborne pathogens.

With its recommendations for gloves, masks, goggles and lab coats, the 1992 law had medical settings in mind rather than porn sets, and it didn’t take into account the advent of pre-exposure prophylactics (PrEP) or the porn industry’s regular testing of actors. Even still, there are no clear regulations governing the state’s porn industry. So to clear it all up, the AHF, Cal/OSHA and bareback porn producers will meet on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017, to discuss it.

It’s a monumental meeting with political rivals on opposite sites of Cal/OSHA’s table, and it could set the state’s rules on bareback porn for decades to cum. (See what we did there?)
