LA City Council Approves Mandatory Condom Usage for Porn StarsThe Los Angeles City Council approved an ordinance today that makes it mandatory for porn actors to wear condoms on location shoots in the city.

In a near unanimous vote of 9-1, the City Council approved the measure at a meeting today, according to a report in the LA Weekly.

The ruling, which the City Council approved 11-1 in a preliminary vote last week, only applies to porn scenes shot on-location and exempts adult films shot at studios. Still, the majority of porn films made in Los Angeles are shot on-location.

The ordinance now just needs the mayor’s signature.

The ordinance has it’s fair share of advocates who say the measure is needed to prevent the spread of HIV in the multibillion-dollar adult film industry, much of which is centered in Los Angeles, according to the New York Daily News.

But there are other groups such as the porn industry’s trade association, the Free Speech Coalition, who’ve opposed the city mandating the use of condoms. The group argues that regular testing of actors for sexually transmitted diseases has worked, claiming that there have been no confirmed cases of HIV in the porn industry in five years.

However, the adult industry shut down last August after reports surfaced that a unnamed adult performer tested positive HIV.
