Voters reject measure on condom use in porn films

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Voters have rejected a ballot measure requiring actors to use condoms in porn movies made in California.

Proposition 60 has lost Wednesday with 99 percent of votes cast.

The measure also would have required porn producers to be licensed by the state and pay to have their actors tested for sexually transmitted diseases.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which raised more than $4.6 million in support of the measure, says it’s needed to keep porn actors safe.

The porn industry countered that its audiences don’t want to see actors wearing condoms, which it says are less safe than the current requirement that actors be tested every 14 days.

Industry officials and some actors have said they would leave California if the measure passed.

The measure is similar to one adopted by Los Angeles County voters in 2012.
