AIDS Activist Group Demands Porn Actors Wear Condoms

An AIDS activist group has filed a complaint against Larry Flynt, accusing the porn king of creating an unsafe environment for his adult film stars by not having them use condoms.

But alongwith its complaint, the AIDS Health Foundation also delivered a hundred DVDs of hardcore Flynt films to the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health office for review.

The group contends that since only a single scene in one of the films shows a performer using a condom, the company is compromising the safety of its actors.

"We see it as our duty to pursue action on the issue of safety in the workplace -- in these instances, unprotected sex acts taking place in albeit non-traditional workplaces," AHF president Michael Weinstein says in a statement. "It demonstrates unsafe and potentially life-threatening behavior."

The group wants officials to enforce the use of condoms in all adult films produced in California.

Company president Michael Klein says that is an unreasonable demand since audiences don't want to watch people using condoms.

"We won't budge when it comes to condomless productions," he says in a statement. "That's what the consumer wants, and we deliver it."

He adds that none of the company's actors has ever tested positive for HIV and insists its performers are tested regularly.

Federal law requires that all adult actors be tested for HIV one month before the start of filming.
