Porn Industry Might Return to L.A.

Posted on Thursday, November 17th, 2016


“The industry is moving back to L.A. — unquestionably,” claims Steven Hirsch, founder and co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, in an article for LA Times.

After the defeat of Proposition 60 and the “overturn” of Measure B, many porn companies are expecting a triumphant return to producing films in Los Angeles. “I am greatly encouraged,” said John Stagliano, founder and owner of Evil Angel. He predicts that a rebound of adult filmmaking will happen in the San Fernando Valley—a region renown as a porn capital.

Not all industry insiders echo similar sentiments.

Ela Darling, an adult film performer and producer, isn’t overly optimistic about film shoots returning back to the valley. She believes that production volume will remain trickle, citing the industry’s struggle with Cal/OSHA. The organization enforces rules sporadically. Since 2004, the bureau has only conducted 40 on-site inspections and issued 49 citations for lack of condom usage. Plus Measure B is still in effect, which left only 26 adult filming permits being filed in 2015 compared with 480 in 2012.

The adult film community prefers production in California over other states. “Production out-of-state is a pain in the butt,” says Adam Grayson, CFO of Evil Angel. “You got to buy a lot of Southwest Airlines tickets. People would love to come back here.”
