CAMARILLO, Calif. —

The Camarillo City Council has instituted a 45-day moratorium on production of pornographic movies, as it decides how to handle a recent rush of film permit requests.

Officials did not disclose the number of permits recently requested but Assistant City Attorney Don Davis tells the Ventura County Star ( http://bit.ly/11SFPDS) the amount is "unusual" for the city.

The moratorium was passed unanimously Wednesday night.

Davis says the council will look at drafting regulations to protect the public health, safety and welfare of the community.

The newspaper says officials believe adult film studios may be looking to expand to other areas of Southern California, after the passage of a measure last year requiring condom use during porn filming within cities in Los Angeles County.
