Buying the Morning-After Pill without a Prescription or Parental Notification is OK but Porn Stars without Condoms is Not

Week in Review

When it comes to safe-sex there probably isn’t anyplace safer than the world of pornography based in Los Angeles.  No one tests more for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) than porn stars.  Because they can’t work if they have one.  So they’re careful to remain disease-free.  Granted some disease slips through.  But if you calculated the incidence of STDs per sex act it’s not the porn world that will frighten you.  But that’s the place the good people of California want to make safer when they’re having their sex (see Porn Producers Say Unprotected Sex Is Free Speech Right by Edvard Pettersson posted 7/12/2013 on Bloomberg).

Pornographic movie makers told a judge that a Los Angeles County voter-approved measure requiring adult-film actors to wear condoms violates their constitutional right to free speech…

Los Angeles County voters in November approved the measure, the Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act, which seeks to minimize the spread of sexually transmitted diseases through the making of porn movies.

The explosion of STDs is not in pornography.  It’s with our young people.  Who are more sexually active than ever thanks to free birth control passed out at high schools.  Access to abortion.  And now girls as young as 15 (or younger) can walk into most any pharmacy and buy the morning-after pill without a prescription or parental notification.  An especially dangerous change in the law as it will encourage girls to have more unprotected sex because they can take a pill the morning after.  Increasing sexual activity among our young people.  And with increased sexual activity comes an increase in sexually transmitted diseases.

But we can’t tell these kids to stop having sex.  Because they won’t listen to us.  So we must do the best we can do.  And make it easier for them to have even more sex.  With the free birth control, access to abortion and the morning-after pill.  Somehow that makes sense to some.  Even to those who think the men in the porn industry should wear condoms in all their movies.  While the morning-after pill will no doubt decrease the use of condoms among sexually active high school kids.  Encouraging ever more risky sexual behavior.

It’s a pity our kids can’t be as safe and disease-free as some of our porn stars.
