AHF Targets Hustler at Porn Protest

Lyla Katz
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — About two dozen protestors gathered in front of Larry Flynt Publications headquarters today, blasting Larry Flynt and Hustler Video for engaging in unsafe work practices by not requiring performers to wear condoms.

Protestors carried signs that read, “Condoms in Porn Now” and “Condoms Save Lives.”

Others carried posters of a picture of Larry Flynt flashing his middle finger.

Most of the protestors were volunteers and employees of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has been pushing for mandatory condom use in adult production.

In response, Larry Flynt spokeswoman Julie Messing said in a statement that the adult film industry has safeguards in place to protect performers and that Cal/OSHA is “complaint-driven organization” with most complaints filed by AHF and not adult industry performers.
