SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A San Francisco supervisor has arranged for VIP tours of fetish porn company Kink.com studios for a $300 donation to his campaign for State Assembly.

Democrat David Campos is running for the District 17 Assembly seat currently held by fellow Democrat Tom Ammiano.

A Campos fundraiser Monday night is being held at the Armory Club cocktail lounge, across the street from the historic San Francisco Armory at Mission and 14th streets, once used by the National Guard and as a sporting venue and currently the headquarters of Kink.com.

Kink.com produces Internet pornography specializing in bondage, sadomasochism and role-playing. The Armory Club was opened in 2012 by Kink.com owner and bondage-enthusiast Peter Acworth.

On Campos’ website, those interested in contributing to his fundraiser have three levels to choose from. A $50 donation will get you in the door at the Armory Club to meet the supervisor. A $150 donation will let contributors “enjoy Kink’s special brand of entertainment” in the club’s VIP room.

The top level, a $300 donation, will allow donors to “take a stimulating guided tour of the San Francisco Armory and studio, home of Kink.com” in addition to the Kink entertainment at the Armory club and a “bag of goodies.”

A Kink.com spokesman sent a tweet telling followers to “come support a SF politician who isn’t afraid of a little ‘kink.’

Kink.com is currently asking the city for permission to convert some of the Armory studios to office space as the company feels the pinch of strict California regulations on use of condoms in adult films – and is threatening to move its porn operations to Nevada.

Kink.com is fighting against a proposed Assembly bill to mandate the use of condoms in all adult films shot in the state.

Two actors for Kink.com tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS last September, although the company said neither performer contracted the virus while on a Kink set.

Records show that the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined Kink.com parent company Cybernet for a number of violations after an inspection last August. The largest part of the fine – $75,000 of it – targeted Cybernet’s policy allowing its performers to choose whether or not to use condoms.
