Porn film actor tested positive for HIV

Two production companies shut down while performers are tested


 

Two well-known adult film production companies in Los Angeles have shut down after a performer tested HIV-positive on Tuesday. Individuals exposed to the active performer—whose name and gender are undisclosed—are being tested and quarantined, according to a spokesperson for the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation. The infection is the first known local case in over a year and has renewed calls by AIDS activists for increased regulation and state-mandated condom use on porn sets. Wicked Pictures and Vivid Entertainment have suspended operations as a precaution.

  1. I think it's money that they're thinking about, not sex.

  2. With this business, thinking is an uphill battle when most of one's blood pool down to the southern part of one's body. Haven't they discovered condom yet in this industry?

    • i sure as hell ain't a social conservative but you can see things like modern porn and UFC are proof of de-evolution

    • Haven't they discovered condom yet in this industry?

      Market forces. If the market wanted to see condoms, you'd see condoms in porn. The market doesn't, so you don't.

      As for those in the porn industry lacking intelligence, I'll tell you this much: The money that is available to those in the porn industry is very much a scholarship opportunity to many. I've known more than a few girls who paid their way through their engineering degree just that way.
