LOS ANGELES — Hustler Video has been cited by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health for not using condoms on a 2010 movie shoot, according to a published report.

The producer faces more than $14,000 in fines for three violations including failure to provide condoms or other protective equipment, the Associated Press reported.

A Hustler Video spokesperson had no comment on the matter. Representatives from Cal-OSHA were not available for comment.

Another adult company, Forsaken Pictures, faces about $12K in fines, according to AP.

The Hustler Video citation is based on a Sept. 14 inspection of a site in response to a complaint from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the report said.

The Foundation has waged an ongoing campaign to get local and state agencies to enforce bloodborne pathogen regulations, including mandatory condom use, on adult production sets.

Free Speech Coalition's Executive Director Diane Duke once again maintained that AHF's complaints were unfounded.

"At a time when the adult entertainment industry is working, in earnest, to develop industry-appropriate regulations, Cal-OSHA would do well to stay away from this kind of political grandstanding," Duke said.

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously voted in early February to instruct the city attorney to investigate mandatory condom use in porn movies. The motion, first introduced last December, would require production companies to have performers wear condoms in order to receive film permits.
