L.A. Gives Final Approval to Adult Film Condom Mandate
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council voted 9-1 to grant final approval to an ordinance mandating that adult film producers provide condoms and require actors to wear them during filming in order to receive film permits. Under the new policy, which will take effect in 90 days, adult film producers also will have to pay a fee to cover the cost of enforcement and unannounced inspections.
