What the performers want really has no bearing on the workplace safety issue. Workers in many industries are required to wear safety goggles and seat belts, even if they don't want to, even if they consider them uncomfortable. Why? Because it is important to work in a safe manner that protects both you and your coworkers, and it is important for employers to maintain decent safety standards. This basic requirement to take reasonable measures to prevent predictable injuries should be maintained in all industries -- factories, restaurants and even porn studios.
