LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles City Council approved a new law Tuesday that will require adult film stars to use condoms.
The council tentatively approved the ordinance, which will require all performers in adult videos to use condoms, last week.
Ordinance supporters say the measure is needed to prevent the spread of HIV, but the adult video industry’s trade association, the Free Speech Coalition, says condoms are not necessary.
Los Angeles is the first city in the nation to approve a law requiring actors to use protection during sexual intercourse.
