An AIDS activist group has filed a workplace safety complaint against porn king Larry Flynt, accusing him of creating an unsafe environment for his sex stars by not requiring them to use condoms.
The AIDS Health Foundation delivered 100 DVDs of hardcore Flynt films to the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health's Los Angeles office to prove its point.
Its spokesman Ged Kenslea said only a single scene in one of the films shows a performer using a condom.
The complaint said the films, most with innuendo-laden names, "clearly demonstrate workplace activities highly likely to spread blood borne pathogens in the workplace".
It urged the state agency to order the use of condoms on film sets.
Larry Flynt Productions President Michael Klein indicated that is an unreasonable demand, adding porn audiences do not want to watch people using condoms.
"We won't budge when it comes to condomless productions," the Daily Express quoted him as saying in a statement.
"That's what the consumer wants, and we deliver it," he said.
Federal law requires that all porn actors be tested for HIV 30 days before the start of filming, and Klein said Flynt's productions adhere to those standards.
He added that none of the company's actors ever tested positive for HIV.
AHF President Michael Weinstein said his group targeted Flynt in part because he is arguably the world's most famous and successful pornographer.
