LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles City Council, 9-1, approved a new ordinance Tuesday requiring that all adult film actors wear condoms when filming within the city limits.
The ordinance, when it goes into effect, will allow the LAPD to perform spot checks on any set once a film permit is issued.
Officials from LAPD, Cal/OSHA and the city attorney’s office will make recommendations on how to implement the ordinance.
The vote was a second procedural vote on the ordinance and required only a simple majority of the council to give final approval.
The Free Speech Coalition said that the adult industry trade group is in discussions with industry leaders and considering options for next steps.
