(CNN) – The Los Angeles County Supervisors voted this week to put an initiative on the November ballot asking voters to decide whether adult film actors must wear condoms.
[0:37] "You can’t mandate sexual behavior between consenting adults. It just doesn’t work,” says Steve Hirsch, founder of Vivid Entertainment, an adult entertainment company.
Hirsch’s company is one of the largest adult film studios in the world, releasing more than 60 adult films each year and grossing more than $100 million. He and other adult film actors don’t like the initiative.
[1:49] “A lot of the fans that watch porn don’t want to see scenes with condoms in them," says Brandy Aniston, an adult film actress, "because everybody at home knows that when you rip open a condom it kind of ruins the moment.”
But Mark McGrath, with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, says condoms should be mandatory for the adult film industry:
[2:37] “It is unfair that these people should be able to go to work, contract an infectious disease and come home and bring it to their families.”
The adult film industry does test but McGrath says testing is not prevention. Actors say it should be up to them whether they use condoms or not on set.
Producer Hirsch says if voters approve the initiative in November, it could force the lucrative adult film industry out of Los Angeles.

"There's nothing more frustrating than standing at a stop, waiting for 10 minutes, getting on the bus and seeing another bus directly behind you.”
And that second bus is largely empty. It's a problem known as "bus bunching," and it happens when buses are thrown off schedule because of traffic, weather or too many passengers at one stop.
And when those buses are off schedule, the drivers try to adjust. Student Sukirat Bakshi says he's been victim of a bus "drive-by:"
