When I mention “Measure B,” many people outside the adult entertainment industry don’t know what I’m referring to, however if I say “the Condoms in Porn Law,” their faces light up in recognition. For me, this is indicative of the overall law and the general understanding of it, which is why I’m happy to participate in a session at CatalystCon East titled The Facts About Measure B, and How It Impacts Us All.
Per the website (www.CatalystCon.com), the session will cover the following:
In November 2012 the voters of Los Angeles County approved Ballot Measure B, also known as the “condoms in porn” law. However, Measure B goes much further then adult entertainment. B is a broad attack not only on pornography but also consensual commercial sex between couples of all orientations. It criminalizes private behavior in the bedroom and takes us back to the days prior to the Supreme Court’s decision in Lawrence v. Texas when consensual sodomy was still a crime. Is Measure B a slippery slope that might lead to more government intrusion in bedrooms across the country? We’ll discuss the current status of the Measure B fight as well as its implications for the future and the lessons learned from the No on B campaign.
Additional speakers in the session include Tristan Taormino and Michael Fattorosi, two brilliant people whose opinions I’m looking forward to hearing.
As I’ve previously stated, CatalystCon East is March 15-17 in Washington D.C. It will be 3 days of inspirational conversations on sexuality. Come and expand your mind with me and the other 70 speakers.
