Group Pushes To Require Condoms in L.A. Adult Films
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation is leading a campaign to put a measure on Los Angeles' June 2012 ballot that would require adult film performers to use condoms in order to receive Los Angeles city permits. The group needs to submit a petition with at least 41,138 signatures by Dec. 23 to place the measure on the ballot. The Los Angeles City Council in May voted unanimously against mandating the use of condoms as a condition for receiving permits for adult films. Instead, the council urged state and county officials to allow them to do so.
