LOS ANGELES (AP) — Where have all the adult-movie filmmakers gone?

A quick review of the Internet shows there is no shortage of porn films available for instant download.

But in Los Angeles County, for years the country's porn capital, records reveal only 20 permits to make adult films have been pulled so far this year.

Industry officials say that's the result of an ordinance voters passed more than a year ago requiring that porn actors use condoms.

So where are the films coming from?

Industry officials say many are still being made in LA County by filmmakers who have gone underground.

Others have taken their actors to neighboring counties or states.

If the ordinance remains in effect, many say they won't come back.
