|Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery says having sex for money may be illegal.|
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's heard the news that several California porn-production companies may be planning to come out to Arizona, partially due to Los Angeles' new law requiring porn actors to wear condoms.
Now, Montgomery's warning that bare-backing it on camera in Arizona may qualify as prostitution.
"Under Arizona law, anyone paid to appear in a pornographic movie may be guilty of the crime of prostitution, which carries mandatory jail time as well as the possibility of other penalties," Montgomery's office warns.
As you may know -- or pretend to not know -- several porno outlets have already been operating in Arizona for several years now, including the Scottsdale-based Backroom Casting Couch and FTV Girls.
