The article discusses the U.S. adult film industry as of September 2012, focusing on a call for the courts to issue a writ of mandamus requiring the industry to force film participants to use condoms to prevent the transmission of HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases. The author argues that the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health abused its discretion as a government agency by failing to protect the health of adult film industry participants such as actor Derrick Burts.
