Porn Industry Moving To Las Vegas To Avoid Los Angeles Condom Law [Video]

The porn industry is experiencing a new revival, not just in style, but in location. The porn industry is making the move to Las Vegas!

Los Angeles, long the home of the majority of the biggest porn studios in the world, recently passed a voter approved law stating that adult film actors had to use condoms when filming. Most porn studio heads find this to be a requirement that the industry will not be able to stand.

Lee Roy Meyers, Owner of Mission Control Studios, addressed reporters at the Adult Entertainment Expo this week in Las Vegas about the Los Angeles Condom Law and the move to Las Vegas, saying:

"Las Vegas is a fresh town, and it's where people need the business".
"It's not really an option to change the way we make our movies, and moving production isn't that hard".

The industry is also looking for ways to cut costs. With DVD sales plummeting and more and more amateurs filming and putting their stuff online the industry needs to cut costs and a move to Las Vegas does just that. In addition to cheaper studio costs, Nevada does not require porn stars to undergo monthly health examinations while Los Angeles does.

For its part, Las Vegas authorities welcome the move. Clark County commissioner Chris Giunchigliani told the Associated Press:

"It's a legalized industry and properly regulated, so I don't see it as a problem. I think the city and the county will benefit from any expansion of the film industry. It's economic diversification".
"The issue with running to Vegas is it doesn't actually fix anything. We should explain to the people who put that law in place why it's unnecessary, and appeal it the same way any community would appeal any asinine law."
