Skip to comments.Porn filmmaking shut down after performer tests HIV positive - (Los Angeles)

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, weve 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.
Dukes 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 performers 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.

HIV in the porn business? I’m shocked!
This is probably one industry that hasn’t been affected by the downturn...
It’s always affected by a downturn, that’s why they
Damn. Guess it will be re-runs for the next month.
Okay, now I have to clean the spray off my screen -- LOL!
Will we get refunds?
o gee they’re such responsible corporate citizens from hell.
It will be interesting to see if it is a Gay or Straight “actor/actress”.
They have a pill for that now.
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....!
I have no sympathy for these idiots. They are the black stain on humanity.
Not ready for prime time.
Also: See Barack Hussein Obamah.
the industry has been hit hard by the free sites across the internet
My money is on a male bi-sexual.
I hear they do not routinely test the gay porn idjits.
0bama small wad?
Sinclair goes down?
Zer0's a Dick-tater load?"
Except for other porn stars and a few politicians no one should be concerned.
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
