LA Approves Porn Condom Mandate

It’s official. Actors in Los Angeles city limits will now be required to wear condoms while performing sex scenes in porn shoots. The LA City Council passed the controversial measure by a 9-1 vote yesterday. Needless to say, the porn industry was not pleased.

“We want to work with government to find solutions to real problems, but are determined never to submit to a City Council—or a county, state or federal government, for that matter—that believes it can impose its will on us in direct violation of our rights as consenting adults,” Adult Video News chief executive Theo Sapoutzis said in a statement. “This is an act that cannot go unchallenged.”

Could this be the issue that finally sparks a San Fernando Valley secession from LA? Stranger things have happened.
