Condoms in Porn, County Ballot Initiative (1/3/12)

Skooter reporting 07/06/12

A propose measure that porn actors in Los Angeles County wear condoms during filming will be put to voters in November's election. The petition garnered enough signatures to qualify, election officials said.

Supporter of the petition, Aids Healthcare Foundation, said the measure would protect porn actors from HIV. If passed, it would spread out to county level an ordinance requiring condom use as a prerequisite of receiving a filming permit within the city of Los Angeles.

The measure was signed into law by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa in January after the Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF) brought a similar petition to city government. The city is still perusing how to enforce the ordinance.

Filming companies are threatening to move out of California due to the requirement, but face legal difficulties.

The ballot measure would be similar to health permits for beauty salons and tattoo parlors with possible regular inspections, said Lori Yeghiayan, a spokeswoman for AHF. Breaking the provisions of the possible permit could result in fines or misdemeanor charges. Yeghiayan added that it is the law of California that the use of condom is under the state’s division of Occupational Safety and Health, where it is covered under protections regarding bodily fluids, but “the issue has been enforcement.”
