Proposition 60, California’s controversial ballot measure that would require adult film performers to use condoms, has been rejected by a margin of nearly 54 percent against and 46 percent in favor, with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

The measure has been a topic of heated debate, pitting the Free Speech Coalition, the adult entertainment industry’s trade association, against the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

Here’s a sampling of the two sides’ stances on the measure, from a recent story on NPR’s Shots health blog:

“Its success depends on stigma around sex, stigma around porn,” says the Free Speech Coalition’s Mike Stabile.

“I don’t want young people to be educated that the only kind of sex that’s hot is unsafe sex,” says the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s Michael Weinstein.

As of 10 a.m. ET, the ballot measure had been approved by voters in only four counties — Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and Imperial, according to the state’s tally.
