Condoms a must for LA porn actors

Los Angeles - Condoms are now required on Los Angeles porn sets.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa signed an ordinance in January requiring that actors in adult movies in the city must use condoms in order for producers to get a filming permit, and the rule took effect on Monday.

The Aids Healthcare Foundation lobbied for the regulation for years and says it's essential to protect adult film actors from HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. The group is collecting signatures for a November ballot measure that would require condoms on sets countywide.

But industry leaders say the new regulation might drive them from the US porn capital. They estimate that as many as 90% of US porn films are made in Los Angeles, most of them in the suburban San Fernando Valley.
