CA County Rushes Through Condom Mandate for Porn

Skin-flick emergency!


Following Los Angeles County's lead, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted to pass an urgency ordinance to require the use of condoms in adult film shoots.

The proposal mimics Measure B, which was approved by Los Angeles County voters last year and has led porn companies to scale back filming there and consider moving their operations to neighboring counties. The board's unanimous vote on an urgency basis means the ordinance would take effect immediately in the unincorporated areas of Ventura County, which cover about 95,000 people. Incorporated cities would have to pass their own measures, with Camarillo's City Council expected to consider today extending a moratorium on adult film permits for another 10 months.
