Free Speech Coalition is requesting that adult producers refrain from shooting on February 18, the date of a critical Cal/OSHA meeting, so that large numbers of performers may be free to attend and testify. Cal/OSHA is expected to vote on regulations that would require condoms for all penetrative sex, including oral, as well as dental dams and goggles.
“It is crucial that performers are available to speak at this final Cal/OSHA meeting, because Cal/OSHA weighs heavily the voice of the workers,” said Jeffrey Douglas, Board Chair of the Free Speech Coalition. “So we ask that producers not book shoots for February 18, so that any performer who wishes to attend can do so.”
In October 2015, Cal/OSHA issued the final language for the regulations, and declined to remove the controversial condom and goggle requirements. Without a strong performer showing at the hearing, the regulations are expected to pass.
The meeting will take place at 10:00 am in the Harris State Building, 1515 Clay Street in Oakland, California.
