A San Francisco porn company has been hit with a fine of nearly $80,000 for maintaining dangerous workplace conditions, among them allowing performers to have sex on camera without using condoms.

Kink.com spokesman Michael Stabile says many performers prefer not to use condoms and that the fine is part of a long-running campaign by those who oppose the porn industry.

The inspection was prompted by a formal complaint filed by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a Los Angeles advocacy group, after two Kink performers - Cameron Bay and her then-boyfriend Rod Daily - tested HIV-positive last year.

Last September, California lawmakers voted down a bill that would have required that porn actors use condoms.

But CalOSHA rules already require companies to minimize employees' exposure to blood and other potentially infectious bodily fluids.
