New California law may force porn stars to wear protective eye gear while filming hardcore sex scenes
Well, someone with a very specific fetish is about to be incredibly happy.
"The latest version of a California worker safety bill may require adult film actors to wear items like protective goggles while filming sex scenes, Salon reports. An updated draft of Bill AB 640 would not only prohibit state-wide performers from ejaculating onto the genitals, mouth or eyes, but require employers to provide "barrier protection" eyewear as well."
In order to understand how astronauts returning to Earth from a long space voyage would adjust, NASA is willing to fork out $18,000 to anyone who wants to stay in bed for 70 days straight. Sounds like an easy gig, but we’re talking about staying in bed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 70 days. Just laying there, tilted up at a 6 degree angle for nearly 2 and a half months. You don’t get to leave to use the bathroom or eat or anything. Sure, there are worse jobs, but overall it sounds like a good way to go insane. Is there beer? And frequent sex? No? Fuuuuck.
Right now across the country, McDonald’s employees are protesting low wages and McDonald’s shitty “just get a second job” attitude. But if McDonald’s raised its wages to $15/hr as many are demanding, how would that affect the price of food? As it turns out, your Big Mac would only cost $0.68 more and everything on the Dollar Menu would cost 17 cents more. I think we as a people can deal.
It’s easy for companies to snoop on potential employees via social networking, but it puts them in a legal gray area
These days, it’s harder to find people who aren’t publicly on some major social networking site, and people are becoming more used to certain information being fairly public. So it seems like a no brainer that employers would look you up on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr etc to get an idea of what you’re like. They’d be dumb not to. But on the other hand, it exposes them to information that may not be relevant to the job and that could influence their hiring in ways that might not be legal.
So you want to be a male porn star? Getting paid good money to fuck hot girls six ways to Sunday? Good luck. Not only do male porn stars get paid far less than their female coworkers, it also requires far more skill. A female porn star can lay back, lube up and get pounded into oblivion. The guy in that scene is trying to maintain a continuous rock-hard boner through two to three hours of shooting, being stopped and re-started by a director or cameraman, working under hot lights in uncomfortable not-very-romantic conditions and on and on.
