How should one practice safe sex on a porn set? This week on How to Behave, Brian Keyser is joined by co-host Hannah Howard and frequent guest Jennifer Peterman to talk about some of the recent controversies in the adult film industry. Recently, adult film actress Cameron Bay contracted HIV, and the news has caused the porn industry to come to a sudden halt. Brian invites LA Times writer Abbey Sewell to discuss her recent article concerning condom usage in porn films. Find out why the porn business generally stays away from showing condoms in pornographic films. Is government intervention concerning condoms in porn unconstitutional? Listen in to this episode to hear how the skin industry overlaps with free speech! Thanks to our sponsor, Rolling Press. Thanks to Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord for the How to Behave theme.

“People don’t want to watch porn with condoms in the film. It destroys the element of fantasy.” [7:30]

“The primary objective of condoms in porn films is the public health aspect- condoms protect the actors from getting STDs or transmitting them to their partners. But the secondary message is that wearing condoms is normal.” [17:30]
