Filming Porn on Your Block in The Valley

Somehow residents of a Valley neighborhood are shocked that porn is being filmed in a house on their street. They must have missed that memo to the whole world that the Valley is the porn production capital. Residents on Hayvenhurst Avenue in Encino were shocked on Easter Sunday to find that the Easter bunny left a basket of T&A and accompanying camera crews in a house down the street.

[Resident] Kerry Cohen, a paralegal and mother, was on her way out to organize a charity event. As she squeezed past several large production trucks, Cohen looked in her rear-view mirror and saw "scantily clad" young women parking their cars and heading toward the same house.

As far as John R. Johnson was concerned, "that was the end of Easter Sunday." Johnson, another neighbor, told his 9-year-old daughter to stay inside while what he described as a "prison-yard break" — a large film crew, many of its members covered in tattoos — entered the iron gates of the house in the 3600 block of Hayvenhurst.

Despite the fact that the porn producers had obtained all of the necessary permits, residents don’t like to think about what is happening behind the closed doors of the house. They also don’t like the fact that many of the husbands probably own some pornos produced in their very own neighborhood.
