One of the more controversial measures that passed in yesterday's elections was Measure B which would require male actors in adult films to wear condoms.

Technically called "The Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act", the measure also forces adult films producers  to obtain health permits for each of their productions.

Some argue that the measure would be hard to enforce. Meanwhile, many fear that such a requirement would scare the profitable industry away from L.A. and possibly California.

Twitter users, predictably, reacted negatively last night and this morning as you can see from this collection of tweets from adult video performers and their fans:
