Between the subway and work, there's a big square with a park in the center ringed by expensive brownstones. It often attracts television and movie productions so when I'm running late I curse the frustration of everybody's favorite, location shot being right in the path to the rabbit hole. Nevertheless, I get over it.

Some folks however aren't so willing just to let go. According to Claire Hoffman, a staff writer for the LA Times (04/30/06) the residents of one Encino, California neighborhood cul-de-sac were recently upset with rash of recent adult productions.

One neighbor, called a toll-free number on a flier distributed beforehand to discover the first shoot by Califa Productions for Vivid Entertainment Group was for "The Alphabet" starring 21-year-old twins performing various sex acts in alphabetical order.

Somehow, the educational value of sexual ABCs was lost on at least 22 neighbors. They signed a petition alleging that it and another two adult productions, "introduced unsavory and undesirable elements" into their "otherwise peaceful neighborhood."

The city maintains everything was legal with proper permits stipulating that interior or exterior audio and visual during shoots was blocked from neighbors. About 55 000 individual days of shooting are authorized in Los Angeles area each year and about 3000 of those are for adult films. The industry estimates about 3900 adult films are shot annually there so many productions must not bother to obtain proper permits.

The house in question was rented out for filming by tenants for about a third of the typical $5000 a day fee most homeowners charge. Its actual owner didn't know what was happening at the time but has since asked the renters to cease and desist since he plans soon to sell it so worries about compromised property value. Film LA, which grants permits for filming removed the residence from eligibility due to "overuse" anyway.

Meanwhile, translate the term "cul-de-sac" from the original French and one realizes those perineum petitioners need a chill pill since even with million dollar plus homes, Hayvenhurst Avenue "ass-to-sac" ain't too fancy for porn.
