Adult film performers would be required to use condoms in order for porn filmmakers to obtain Los Angeles city permits under a measure that AIDS activists hope to put on the city’s June 2012 ballot.

The proponents must submit a petition with at least 41,138 qualifying signatures (15% of all votes cast in the last mayoral election) by Dec. 23 to place the measure on the June ballot, city election officials said. If they succeed, it will be the first time the issue — litigated and disputed during state regulatory meetings — would come before voters, city election officials said.

The measure would also require porn filmmakers to submit to periodic inspections by city officials to ensure that they comply with the law.
