Los Angeles County Voters to Cast Ballot on Condoms in Porn

July 26, 2012

In a 3-1 vote Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a ballot initiative that will let voters decide whether adult-film actors must wear condoms during sex scenes. The measure would require porn producers to get county-issued health permits; the fees from the permits would be used to cover enforcement costs. More than 371,000 signatures were gathered to get the initiative, which has the backing of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, on the ballot in November.
