Porn studio Kink preparing to move business to Las Vegas

Fearing California's condom bill that would make it mandatory for porn stars to wear condom before performing, porn studio Kink is preparing to move some of its business out of the Golden State to Las Vegas.

California-based Kink recently announced that it was opening production and office space in Las Vegas, adding that it would allow it to move additional production out of its San Francisco Armory headquarters, in case the controversial bill is passed by the California state Senate.

Peter Acworth, founder of porn studio Kink, said, "We don't want to move out of California, but we will if we have to. This bill not only denies performers' choice, it would effectively render most existing adult film production illegal."

He added that Las Vegas was attracting more and more businesses as it was easier to do business in the city and the cost of doing business was lower. He pointed out that other adult studios like Brazzers and Bluebird Films had already moved some of their business to the city.

It is worth mentioning here that Kink last year came under fire for a condom-free production in which a male actor performed with an HIV-positive female actress without a condom.

The California Assembly approved the controversial condom bill AB1576 in spring. The state Senate is expected to pass it next month.
