MALE porn stars have been rushing to get vasectomies after the shocking Supreme Court ruling on abortion.
Adults in the porn industry work hard to prevent pregnancies on set, but some men are taking additional precautions given the recent turn of events that could put women in a more difficult situation.
While many adult film sets are in California – a famously Democratic state – some males in the porn industry are getting vasectomies in case additional anti-abortion legislation reaches the state.
“I never viewed abortion as birth control but as something to be used in a last-ditch if something went completely wrong—a break-in-case-of-emergency situation,” porn star Matt Slayer told The Daily Beast.
“The Supreme Court taking away the right to choose made me give a long hard look at my role in any potential situation.
“I realized I should just take my baby batter out of the mix.”
Many women in the adult film industry are on birth control to reduce the risk of getting pregnant on set.
Others will limit the types of sex scenes they film to further lessen the risk.
Dit is “pretty rare” for a woman in the porn industry to become pregnant, as agent Mark Spiegler told Vice in 2016.
But it does happen.

Spiegler added that when his clients do get pregnant, “they usually quit porn.”
So men are stepping up to do their part and further reduce the chances of impregnating a co-star.
Xander Corvus, another adult star in the industry, told The Daily Beast: “I figured the most direct form of solidarity a cis man can give in this situation is to get snipped, so I am.”
“The net savings on not having to buy condoms should have this little operation turning a profit by the end of the fiscal year 2023,” Slayer added.
While Slayer and Corvus have been outspoken about their willingness to get the procedure done, they told The Daily Beast that others in the industry are seriously considering following suit.
“Why traumatize a partner with having to make that hard decision when I can be in and out of a doctor’s office in less time than it takes to record a podcast?,” Slayer said.
