ABSTRACT
The article discusses the urge of public health advocates to promote safe sex on U.S. pornographic films by requiring the use of condoms among the actors. It says that the proposal followed after the outbreaks of HIV and other sexually transmitted disease among pornographic film performers. It tells that portrayal of unsafe sex in porn films tends to communicate the message that condoms are futile. It adds that one of the challenges faced by the industry is the buyers' aversion toward safe sex.
