LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles City Council, 9-1, approved a new ordinance Tuesday requiring that all adult film actors wear condoms when filming within city limits.

The ordinance, when it goes into effect, will allow the LAPD to perform spot checks on any set once a film permit is issued.

The measure next goes to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for his signature.

Villaraigosa supports a proposed ordinance requiring porn performers to wear condoms while filming, and City Council President Herb Wesson -– who also supports the measure -– could sign the ordinance as acting mayor while Villaraigosa is in Washington.

Anticipating that city voters would endorse the condom requirement, council moved to approve a ballot initiative by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and avoiding a $4 million special election.

Officials from LAPD, Cal/OSHA and the city attorney’s office will make recommendations on how to implement the ordinance.

The vote was a second procedural vote on the ordinance and required only a simple majority of the council to give final approval.

The Free Speech Coalition said that the adult industry trade group is in discussions with industry leaders and considering options for next steps.

UPDATE (3:13 P.M.)

The FSC has responded to the council vote on its blog.
