Porn star's company fined $107,441 for condom violation

CALIFORNIA, USA - A California adult film production company owned by porn star James Deen has been slapped with nearly US$78,000 (S$107,441)  in proposed fines for numerous health and safety violations — including not requiring performers to use condoms.

The Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/Osha) began investigating James Deen Productions, also known as Third Rock Enterprises, following a complaint last December. Upon visiting one of the company's Los Angeles film shoots in January, the state agency found that performers were not required to wear condoms as mandated by Los Angeles County law. The production company was also cited for not providing vaccines or follow-up medical examinations for performers who may have been exposed to Hepatitis B.
