“Looks like we need to build some kind of lab set. Send someone out for a hundred white coats while you’re at it.”

This is long overdue. Believe it or not, I myself have actually seen hapless actor’s eyes struck with foreign matter in those films. Sometimes more than once! The safety conditions are truly appalling. About time I say!

So apparently there are some steampunk enthusiasts who work in the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health who feel their interests are not being well represented in the porn industry…

I recommend full-face protection with positive pressure:

Way ahead of ya, sport.

If this doesn’t destroy the porn industry, I don’t know what will. Except for the new genre of “Steampunk Porn”, which should thrive.

Was that the sound of a dozen movie studios being trucked over to Nevada?

Gonna need earplugs too, y’know, to protect against ear poisoning. Just think of all those hazardous X-rated productions of Hamlet, including the classic OphelYaUp!.

And to prevent butt poisoning, they’ll certainly need…

Question. Does:

mean the employee shall wear?

I was just logging on to the same question. It seems to say that they employer should make them available, but it does not seem to say that they’re are required to be used.

Lab coats and eye protection? This is gonna be awesome.

Well. So much for that bukakke fetish…

If you accept that porn actors must wear condoms, as the studios appear to have, then this isn’t very distinguishable. Cumming in someone’s eye is a pretty good way to transmit disease.

The fact that “the employer shall provide” goggles does NOT mean that the employees have to wear them. So the article’s headline is inaccurate and somewhat sensationalistic.

I think we need to make sure we’re all using the same definition of the word “shoots” here.
