by

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.
