Los Angeles Mayor Signs Adult Film Condom Mandate
On Monday, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) signed into law a new ordinance mandating that adult film producers provide condoms and require actors to wear them during filming in order to receive film permits. Meanwhile, the Simi Valley City Council next week is scheduled to vote on a similar ordinance amid concerns that adult filmmakers might move their productions to neighboring cities and suburban communities to avoid the Los Angeles condom requirement.
