(1) An "adult film" is defined as any film, video, multimedia or other representation of sexual intercourse in which performers actually engage in oral, vaginal, or anal penetration, including but not limited to penetration by a penis, finger, or inanimate object; oral contact with the anus or genitals of another performer; and/or any other activity that may result in the transmission of blood and/or any other potentially infectious materials as defined in California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Section 5193(b).
Our hypothetical cone is indeed included.
If you search for the full report, you'll probably come to this link - which you'll note defines on page two anal or vaginal sex as penetrative with a penis, and notes that this is the language of the ordinance. It isn't as I note above.
A clanger has been dropped you might conclude; some calamitous mistake occurred? Well, move over to the LA office and search the official records and you are presented with a similar report but with some significant differences. The incorrect assertion about the law has vanished, possibly suggesting that city officials thought the law was more narrowly drafted than it is. Something rather interesting has occurred here - and I've not seen a single report that notes or explains this discrepancy between the two versions. An explanation from city officials would surely draw the enthusiastic attentiveness of many who will be affected by this law.
The report makes a number of recommendations, and here are those listed in the LA County website version (which I'm taking as the 'final' 'official' version):
1. Revise the Film Permit Application Section (5) of the Ordinance requires the City to add the following language to all adult film permits: "If this production is an adult film, Permittee must abide by all applicable workplace health and safety regulations, including California Code of Regulations Title 8, Section 5193, which mandates barrier protection, including condoms, to shield performers from contact with blood or other potentially infectious material during the production of films."
2. Require Licensed Medical Inspections Issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking to contract with a licensed medical professional to conduct the periodic inspections of adult film productions involving "Activities Carrying Risk
My reading of the report is less clear. Any figure is dependant upon what options the city chooses, and also varies dependant upon the rate at which licenses are set (and the number then issued). There is also a degree of guess work about those films which currently fall through the licensing regime and thus would contribute towards the need for policing to stop such films. The report makes clear this extends to 'student films' in the largest category - Miscellaneous.
So, we have a crazy law, an intense policing regime and a State that is already financially broke. This shambles still has some way to go.
