Simi Valley has passed a new law aimed at keeping film production of the pornographic kind out of their community.

A measure was approved by the Simi Valley City Council on Monday night that requires film producers to ensure porn actors wear condoms on set during sex acts.

The law will go into effect in one month, according to the Ventura County Star.

Los Angeles approved a similar ordinance in January to protect performers from contracting HIV on set.

Mayor Bob Huber called for the newly passed regulation after speculation that adult movie studios might migrate from the the San Fernando Valley to Simi Valley.

"The bottom line is we don't want to be known as the porn capital of the world," Huber told the LA Times in March.
