Proposition 60 is the mandatory use of condoms in pornographic films in the state of California, the ballot will open on November 8, 2016 to try and reduce or eliminate transmitted diseases when filming pornographic films.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation found through a study that a third of the 168 adult actors who participated had a previously undiagnosed STD.

A vote yes on Proposition 60 would be a vote in favor to require the use of condoms and other protective measures in pornographic films. Pornography producers will also be required to pay for frequent checkups for the actors.

“It promotes safe sex, if people are watching adult films where they are enforcing condoms, it might change people’s views about how common it is,” said Susan Lockwood, 20, Biology Major.

Cases of STDs reported by Local Health Jurisdictions, and incidence rates per 100,000 population, California, 1913-2015.

A vote no on Proposition 60 would be a vote against requiring the use of condoms and other safety measures in pornographic films.

“The use of condoms might intrude on people’s fantasies when watching pornographic films,” said Milan Filipovic, 20, Biochemistry major.

The use of condoms will benefit the actors health but may interfere with the experience of each pornographic video.
