SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Simi Valley is following in the city of Los Angeles' footsteps on the issue of condoms on porn sets.

Council members earlier this week gave the thumbs up for a proposed ordinance that would require actors to use condoms in adult videos shot in Simi Valley, which is within minutes of  Chatsworth, Calif., the epicenter for porn shot in Porn Valley.

The ordinance was drafted at the urging of Mayor Bob Huber, who said he wants to send a message to the adult industy that it is not welcome in "family-oriented" Simi Valley.

The proposed ordinance will be formally introduced and voted on Feb. 13.

City Manager Mike Sedell noted that enforcement could be facilitated by city code enforcement officers, not police officers.

 The Los Angeles City Council and its mayor recently approved a new ordinance requiring that all adult film actors wear condoms when filming within city limits.

Los Angeles' ordinance, when it goes into effect in March, will allow authorities to perform spot checks on any (non-soundstage) set once a film permit is issued.

Officials from LAPD, Cal/OSHA and the city attorney’s office will soon announce recommendations on how to implement the ordinance, including which authority will have jurisdiction over the inspections.
