LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles City Council this morning will discuss behind closed doors implementation of the city's condom ordinance.

The closed session will be held to confer with the city's legal counsel relative to proposals for City Council action arising from a report on the city's Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Ordinance.

Called a "special council meeting," the closed session is expected to be attended by the 15 council members and various members of the City Attorney's Office today at 10:15 a.m.

The city's working group — a panel composing of nearly a dozen city, county and state officials — has met three times already to craft a master plan to implement the ordinance, which makes condoms mandatory for performers at on-location adult film productions within city limits.

The panel, however, has not had success crafting a report on the city’s ability to implement and enforce the ordinance. And the City Attorney's Office said there is "significant exposure" to litigation against the city after they received written communication from AIDS Healthcare Foundation Michael Weinstein and adult industry attorney Allan Gelbard over the ordinance and its process of implementation.

After voting in favor of the ordinance in January, City Council later approved a 90-day extension to craft rules regulating porn productions within Los Angeles city limits, effectively delaying any type of enforcement until next month.

Meanwhile, a county ballot measure that is similar to the city's ordinance will be weighed by voters in November. The county requirement, if enacted, would apply to shoots in unincorporated areas of the county and 85 of its 88 cities, including the city of Los Angeles.
