Porn companies sue to overturn Los Angeles condom law

X-ratedOne year ago today and the headlines for the past couple of days had made some sad, depressing, angry reading.  Whilst this item does definitely have a serious side to it I thought it was time for a bit more of a light-hearted look at a topic which is strangely symptomatic of the mores of society today.  What better way than through another series of limericks.

Porn-film producers today
challenged a ruling of courts in LA
who said actors must wear
a condom down there;
but what do these thespians say?

A young rising star called Tyrone
had a member to rival T-bone.
He said “porn is art,
I won’t cover my part,
with a sissyish love-chaperone”.

A well-endowed French star called Dom
said “when it comes to using my dong,
danger money’s not paid
if I contract AIDS,
so, pour moi, it’s a fragrant condom”.

Young Olaf from northern Norway
said “I do it the Kirkenes way.
With my Norwegian wood
on the pack ice it’s good
as bare as the arctic I say”.

And a Welsh star who’s nicknamed “King Kong”
had a penis exceedingly long.
He said “HIV
is just not for me,
so my durex is doubly strong”.

You’ve heard what the porn stars have said
about flashing their chopper in bed.
Is it right, is it wrong
to cover your dong
or be unprotected instead?

 

12th January 2013 – headline from the BBC

Notes:  Headline – “Porn companies sue to overturn Los Angeles condom law”.  Two major US porn companies have taken legal action to try to overturn a law requiring porn actors in Los Angeles County to wear condoms.  Vivid Entertainment and Califa Productions say the measure violates the guarantee of free speech in the US constitution’s First Amendment.  The law, known as Measure B, was approved by voters in November.  The measure was supported by the Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF), which said it would shield actors from HIV.  “Overturning this law is something I feel very passionate about,” Steven Hirsch, founder of the Vivid Entertainment, told AFP news agency.  “I believe the industry’s current testing system works well,” he added.  Porn actors Kayden Kross and Logan Pierce are joining the challenge against the law.
