Porn filmmaking shut down after performer tests HIV positive - (Los Angeles)
LA Times ^ | August 29, 2011 | Molly Hennessy-Fiske

An adult film performer has tested HIV positive, prompting a temporary shutdown Monday of adult film productions across Los Angeles until further testing can confirm the results, an industry trade group said.

“Until we know for sure, we’ve asked the industry to have a moratorium on production,” said Diane Duke, executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, a Canoga Park-based porn industry trade group.

Duke’s group became aware of the possible HIV case Saturday, according to a statement released to porn industry media. Duke would not say how her group learned about the possible HIV case.

She said she notified adult film production companies across the San Fernando Valley on Monday morning that a performer had tested positive and urged them to temporarily halt productions until further tests were completed.

Duke said company officials she spoke with -- including those at well-known studios, such as Hustler and Evil Angel -- agreed to the temporary shutdown.

Duke said she could not release the performer’s name, age or gender. Further testing will likely be completed within a week, she added. Her group will notify performers who had sex with the potentially infected person so they can get tested.

This is probably one industry that hasn't been affected by the economic downturn...

It’s always affected by a downturn, that’s why they
have “fluffers”.

This is because for men the money is in making GAY porn; guys start out making straight porn for kicks, then go full pro, but observe the HUGE supply of studs who will work for free. Then they want more money, and turn to this other weird(er) stuff.

Same thing for guy strippers; at first it’s bachelorette parties, what a rush, and then they start offering way more money for dancing for DUDES....!

Yikes.

Except for other porn stars and a few politicians no one should be concerned.

Good call!

Patient Zero is reportedly a crossover performer...perhaps Gay for Pay.

These guys test positive the first time they work in straight porn.

HIV Testing every 30 days is the straight porn SOP, condoms optional.

Gay Porn SOP, condoms mandatory w/ No HIV Testing!

Ongoing battle in Los Angeles County over mandatory condoms on porn sets.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is pushing hard for mandatory condoms on all porn sets in LA County.

Just another case of gay rights organizations pushing the majority around to guarantee special rights for gay performers.

Note: No Gay HIV Testing=HIV+ performers working on porn sets.

So, damn the public health for special protection for HIV+ Gay porners.

What’s wrong with this picture?

It used to be that Political Correctness was a thorn in the side...then a Natl Security Issue, now thanks to AHF and their allies, it’s becoming a Public Health Issue

The porn industry trade group is called “The Free Speech Coalition”? They have sex with goats and they’re worried they might not get to give a speech to support a Democrat politician? Free speech is pornography? I guess free speech also includes the right to not tell your fellow porn movie participants that having sex with you is lethal.

What does illicit screwing have to do with free speech? Good grief...we really are to blame for allowing so many activist (read commie) judges to be appointed and/or confirmed.

Everything they do is a “re-run.” They really shouldn’t need new production. They must have enough inventory for the next 500 years.

Yeah, probably. The black guy (or is he a babe) on the right looks scared to death. I wonder if he's worried.
