L.A. City Council OKs Law Requiring Condom Use By Porn Performers | LATimes | Rong-Gong Lin II | 1/18/12

AIDS AwarenessThe following is an excerpt from the LA Times:

The 9-1 vote Tuesday marks a significant victory for the L.A.-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which has been rallying for years to protect the health of porn actors by asking agencies in California to mandate condom use during film shoots. In the past decade, porn shoots have been suspended several times after high-profile cases of porn performers infected by HIV.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation is also gathering signatures for a measure to go to Los Angeles County voters for the November election. It would also require condom use and ask porn producers to obtain permits from the county Department of Public Health before filming. The county would also be able to do surprise inspections.

The AIDS group is also considering launching a similar condom measure in San Francisco.
