There will be no more "it's like taking a shower in a raincoat" excuses for porn stars. The Los Angeles City Council approved a new law Tuesday that will require adult film actors to use condoms.


Supporters of the ordinance say its needed to help prevent the spread of HIV. The opposing side, the Free Speech Coalition, better known as the porn video industry’s trade association, says let 'em ride bareback; condoms are not necessary. Scenes that depict performers "wearing" condoms are generally frowned upon by porn consumers.

Los Angeles, a town well-versed in screwing people over, is the first city in the country to approve a law requiring actors to use protection during sexual intercourse.

How this law is going to be enforced is anybody's guess. Watch for a "Condom Wrangler" acknowledgment to appear alongside the "Fluffer" credit.

Do people, including "adult entertainers," have the right to take the risk of going "bareback?" If adult entertainers can be required to "glove up," can the rest of us also be so required? Does that include couples in long-term, stable, committed relationships?

Only if the couples consent to film their connubials in Los Angeles - the amateur sex video category is gonna be hurting with this decision as well.
