CANOGA PARK, Calif. – Recent comments by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation on a Cal/OSHA case involving adult producer Streamray Studios are inflammatory, the Free Speech Coalition today.
“Yet another attempt by [AHF President Michael] Weinstein to cloud the issue and cause concern for adult producers and performers, in order to garner more media attention for his organization and its anti-adult campaign to drive adult film businesses out of Los Angeles County,” FSC CEO Diane Duke said.
The FSC said that any complaint filed with state workplace safety agency Cal/OSHA should not be confused with enforcement of the Los Angeles “Safer Sex” in adult productions ordinance, the recently passed law that was funded solely by AHF.
Two weeks ago, adult production company Vivid Entertainment, performers Kayden Kross and Logan Pierce filed suit challenging the L.A. County “Safer Sex” Ordinance in federal court.
The FSC said that "interestingly the Cal/OSHA complaint supports the adult industry’s stance that the state has jurisdiction over such issues—not the county."
The FSC said it advises concerned adult producers to consult with their legal counsel on issues related to health and safety compliance.
