Los Angeles lawmakers vote to force porn actors to wear condoms

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Los Angeles city lawmakers voted on Tuesday to require porn actors to wear condoms on set, the latest move in a battle between Aids activists and the California-based United States adult film industry. In a vote which must be confirmed next week, the City Council approved by 11 to 1 an ordinance to enforce the condom requirement and make companies pay a fee for a film permit to finance inspections. The vote came after the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has long campaigned for condom use on porn sets, collected enough signatures to force LA city fathers either to pass the ordinance, or organise a costly public vote. AHF President Michael Weinstein described the vote as a step toward regulating what he called the 'machine that was promoting unsafe sex' in the US porn film industry, based in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles.
