HIV Outbreak In Porn Industry Causes Concern, Controversy

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooEtc.

Yikes! What a mess!

Since the news of one confirmed case of HIV in the porn industry, it now turns out that there are at least 16 other adult performers with the disease, causing concern for L.A. County health officials and AIDS activists.

The Division of Occupational Safety and Health has found the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (AIM) - which tests performers for STDs - resistant to full disclosure, but AIM insists that they are likewise limited by laws that protect patient and employer rights.

While it is not known who the infected actress is, it is known that she slept with a male performer and her boyfriend since testing positive for HIV, and those men then had sex with another 6 partners. The actor is now under work quarantine and everyone else has been alerted and offered testing. So far, no one who is known to have had sexual contact with the woman has tested positive.

Because the additional 16 cases have not been investigated by the government, it is unknown whether the performers contracted the disease at work or elsewhere.

The last major HIV outbreak occurred in 2004, when 5 porn performers tested positive for the disease, shutting down the industry for a month.

While state labor codes do require the use of personal protective equipment against blood or bodily fluids in the work place, no law specifically requires the use of condoms in porn. When the matter has come up (pardon the pun), no one would back such legislation, fearing that condom requirements would push porn into more dangerous underground realms.

What we want to know is what's so un-sexy about being safe?

Condoms and regular testing are part of healthy, responsible sexual behavior.

Knowledge is power and power is sexy!

Use a condom and get tested regularly!

    isn't it considered a felony if you knowingly have the disease yet continue to fuck other people? this woman should be arrested and charged… but then again… that's what they get for being in the porn industry. no job is ever "safe"

    arrrrg!!!kill those whore!!!!!gross



  11. 11

    Well, if they didn't live such sordid lives……



  12. 12

    The DOUCHEess: Is there a tasteful industry that will save us from death? Has someone found a way to live forever on earth and I don't know about it? Is Perez keeping valuable information from us? DAMN YOU PEREZ!



  13. 13

    I hate to see anyone get HIV…but…to all the porn stars and smut magazine whores who force the rest of society to live their lifestyle and have it, too fucking bad.
    I have more sympathy prostitutes who privately whore themselves out at night and lie to their family and friends, rather than people like holly madison, kendra and jenna jameson, who walk around the earth polluting our society and media. Fuck those whores. And now kendra is pregnant, ewww. poor kid.



  14. 14

    What's so "unsexy"? Please. Explain how you decorate a girls forehead with a jimmy hat on?



  15. 15

    .
    How can the porn industry NOT require condoms? Stupid move



  16. 16

    I may not agree with their career or lifestyle but no one deserves to get a deadly disease. This was so preventable. Don't be stupid wear a condom and reduce the risk, especially since you know that the people that you are sleeping with have slept with hundreds of other people.



  17. 17

    HIV is not a disease. HIV is a virus. AIDS is the disease, or you can say HIV/AIDS is a disease. Did Perez go to school?



  18. 18

    It is very messed up that she slept with people knowing she was positive. She should have charges against her.
    As for people saying its a disqusting industry and they deserved it….what the fuck is wrong with you??!! You know you hypocrits watch porn!!



  19. 19

    Re: Long Dong Connery – Hahahah he's also something his mom should have swallowed.



  20. 20

    A great reason to stay away from the porn industry. I wanted to earn some quick cash by doing them, but I declined. Thanks Mario, you saved me! I mean, I just tested negative and I want to stay that way.

    I hate porn!!!!!! They never make them for females to enjoy. All you see is mainly is titties bouncing up and down, and some pussay shots!!!!! I'll pass!!
    As for those getting HIV ~~~~ Karma baby!!!!!!!!!



  22. 22

    Condoms are rarely used in the industry, even among the major studios, hence the frequent HIV and STD testing. The real problem is the producer/director who didn't check her test before she filmed the scene. No one would let this girl work with a positive test.



  23. 23

    I think it's sad how you US housewives hate on those girls here. You may not like porn, I don't like it too, and I am male, but they have a right to do what they do and other people have a right to enjoy their pornography. Stop being prudes.



  24. 24

    :-) can't say that I feel bad for these porn "actors" they are the filth of our society…and this is just NATURAL SELECTION…Darwin wrote about this ;-) enjoy your HIV cumbuckets!!!



  25. 25

    While being sexually responsible is necessary it amazes me that the point of this article was to condemn those who CHOOSE to have sex without barrier. Consequences of life are consequences of life decisions. While HIV is a horrible illness I wish those people who use the barrier method would stop coming down on those who choose not to. It's like people telling you who should drink and who should smoke. All decisions that carry a consequence. And in case anyone says you can't die from drinking or smoking - LOOK AGAIN! Power is not sexy. Power is just that power. Something that in and of itself is a form of possible abuse. Knowledge is something you become wise by and not something that you use to condemn. Condemnation is ignorant. And you show that ignorance Perez just a little too often. Grow the fuck up and stop judging. Mercy triumphs over judgment! How about some compassion in your blurb?

    go on guys fuck tons of people, and let's see where you'll end up. karma for you!



  28. 28

    Porn is sick and needs to end.



  29. 29

    Yikes. Not a good day to be in the porn industry, huh.



  30. 30

    What is wrong with all of you?!?!?! KARMA??? Since when does having sex for a living translate into being a bad person??? You people are all judgmental and being judgemental will only get YOU bad Karma! And EVERYONE watches porn. Give me a break! Hypocritical douchbags!



  31. 31

    Condoms are nasty, unattractive, not guaranteed to work (very high failure rate, unlike what they like to advertise), and generally unpleasant. Getting tested and being responsible is a lot better than wrapping some nasty piece of rubber around your cock.



  32. 32

    Re: 6one9 – - Watch gay porn then.

    I can't believe that in the age of HIV, drug resistant gonorreah and a million other nasty viruses and microbes people still have unprotected sex with multiple partners. I'm sure the infected actors and actresses would agree that no amount of cash is worth their health and lives.

    Re: chellebell – Agreed. Seriously Condoms are not bad. If you are complaining about using a condom because of the feeling you are full of shit. protection is sexy.

    Re: 6one9 – DONT YOU WATCH TYRA!?!?!? she had a sex person on her show, and they said women would rather watch women on women action because of the sensuality, rather then the hard core humpin like men like… sooo women suckin on a women nipple should turn you on too!!!!!!!!!!! hollaaaa

    Thank you.

    Re: Baileymcrae – you are absolutely right…they do have the right to do whatever their disgusting selves want…but then they contract HIV…whoopsie daisy…so sad…LOL…NOT!!! like I said it's just Natural Selection…survival of the fittest. btw, I'm not a prude, nor am
    I a housewife, I just happen to know men and women in the industry and they are filthy disgusting, no morals, no dignity animals, who carry on through life as if they are in a porn movie. I've seen things in club bathrooms and private estates that you wouldn't even see in farms or a pig sty. I'm sorry but in order for someone to do porn for a living they have to lack all sorts of morals and values, including self-love, self-respect, and dignity among many many other things, it just comes with the territory, if you're not lacking these things, you can't just lay there and let a strange piss on your face after he's done dumping his spunk in your ass…and when you can't even find respect for yourself in your life…then you make choices that carry heavy consequences, like opting to work 10 hours a month degrading and humiliating yourself, because you're too lazy to do normal work and earn a living…because the 10 hours a month pays a lot more than the 40 hours a week. it's all about choices.



  42. 42

    uhhhh, excuse me, but with that industry,what do you expect?



  43. 43

    You "karma" douchebags need to get your head out of your ass. I'm sure the Bible has done a lot more harm than the damned porn industry. Nobody deserves it, they did nothing wrong. Sex is not a sin, nobody forces you to watch it, and people have a right to choose what they want to do with their bodies in a consensual situation.



  44. 44

    Maybe Sasha Grey should reconsider her career choice!!!



  45. 45

    Ed Green, Director of Aids Prevention @ Harvard Center has recently stated "We have found NO consistent associations between condom use & lower HIV-infection rates, which, 25 years into the pandemic, we should be seeing if this intervention was working. The best & latest empirical evidence indeed shows that reduction in multiple & concurrent sexual partners is the most important single behavior change associated with reduction in HIV-infection rates…"
    —-So, after 25yrs, medical science is finding monogamy to be the only proven prevention for HIV/AIDs…those in the porn industry are not exactly practicing that in the work or personal lives…



  46. 46

    Where is my last posting?????



  47. 47

    That's what those nasty people get. What did they expect? It doesn't show up right away in a test, so even if you're getting tested every so often you might have it but it could have shown up negative. Duhhhhhhhhhh. They should just infect all of them to get it over with, what else do those people deserve anyway?



  48. 48

    Re: Wenchtits – hell yeah…just not by strangers…and not on film :-) you're taking this a little personally…makes me wonder which one of my statements hit home for ya…lol.



  49. 49

    Aids is 100% preventable, like drunk driving. That is a fact that cannot be refuted. All that is required to prevent Aids is behaviour modification. Change behaviour and you have nothing to worry about. That said, all the monies being spent on Aids research should be diverted to Cancer research.



  50. 50

    I don't understand why it's so complicated to use a condom.



  51. 51

    You don't get the "money shot" when you have to use a condom.



  52. 52

    Re: Puffin

    All of it. I suck off dogs too, but it pays the bills.



  53. 53

    thats scary and gross….just dont have sex or use protection people!



  54. 54

    Re: Wenchtits – well at least it's not horses…uggghhh so gross. to each their own…I worked my ass off and got a graduate degree to pay my bills and you suck off dogs…somebody's gotta do it I guess. sorry dear, nothing personal I just don't have any respect for people who sell their bodies and their dignity for an easy payday…but then again who am I to decide how you should live your life? live it up and be safe!



  55. 55

    Re: Wenchtits – But you have to understand that the wage of sin IS death, and their is a reason why ANY actions are not always smart and when you have UNPROTECTED SEX WITH MULTIPLE PARTNERS like that thats what happens. No one is sayin that sex is BAD, but you can't just fuckin go around puttin peoples lives at risk like that. No one DESERVES to die but it is what it is.



  56. 56

    Re: Puffin – Amen.



  57. 57

    Hey babies! In case you didn't know, condoms DO NOT stop the spread of AIDS. The virus is smaller then the molecules of the latex. CRAZY LIES they tell you!!!



  58. 58

    Porn is gross. And it's stupid that these "actors" and "actresses" are putting themselves and a bazillion other people at risk just to satisfy some losers' lust. Ew.



  59. 59

    Makes me glad I haven't gotten laid in 2 years.



  60. 60

    Dumb fucking sluts deserve it. You don't fuck people on camera for a living without catching something.

    Re: Wenchtits – fuck you animal abuser!!!!!!



  65. 65

    NEWSFLASH, PERVEZ: WHETHER YOU WANT TO ADMIT IT OR NOT, CONDOMS DO NOT COMPLETELY PROTECT YOU FROM GETTING AIDS OR OTHER STD'S. ABSTINENCE UNTIL MARRIAGE AND FAITHFULNESS IN MARRIAGE IS WHAT REALLY PROTECTS YOU.
    You know, i'm not surprised at all. And nobody should be surprised. Of course you're gonna get AIDS or other STD's if you're promiscuous and/or get involved in that lifestyle. I'm sure there's even more pornstars that have AIDS and don't know it yet



  66. 66

    MAN….THATS WHAT THESE FUCKIN ASSHOLES GET! USE A FUCKIN CONDOM NOTHING IS WORTH RISKING YOUR LIFE!



  67. 67

    Okay, I just recently read that you can carry the HIV virus for 10 years and not even know you are a carrier. Can someone please put HIV out in the media again like it was about 20 years ago so people will start being safe again??!?!??! UGH it kills me that men won't rubber up!!!!



  68. 68

    Re: Wenchtits – WTF??? what does the Bible have to do with these irresponsible whores having AIDS??? and NOBODY here is saying that sex is a sin. YOU said it. LOL,you must be REALLY dumb
    for all of you who think there's nothing wrong with porn go to this website:
    thepinkcross.org/



  69. 69

    I've said it here a hundred times & I'll say it here another 100…promiscuity equals STDs. This should not be surprising to people. There *are* repercussions for being a whore…and I mean that for men and women. The sad fact is that a lot of these people feel trapped by the porn industry…have addictions…and have sad, sad stories. So they whore themselves out. And now they're sick with an STD. Porn is literally killing these people. And let's all say the lie again: Porn is ok. It doesn't hurt anybody. It's all consenting adults, so what is the problem? BULL. Porn DOES hurt people. They sell their souls & their good names and even their health to help YOU get off. Porn consumers are as guilty as anybody in this mess. I do pray for those people who afflicted…whatever stupidity they have engaged in, I would not with AIDS on anybody.

    Re: The DOUCHEess – Yes, the wages of sin is death; however, that has nothing to do with promiscuity. According to the Bible, we are all sinners; consequently, we must die.

    Re: Everyone else: You guys are a very judgmental lot. Just because you don't like what people do in porn doesn't mean they deserve to get sick and die.

    Judge not lest ye be judged.

    The porn industry is comparatively small and hardly accounts for the majority of promiscuous people. People who are promiscuous for many reasons: they have low self-esteem, they were abused, they want to be loved, they suffer from depression, etc.

    To the topic at hand, yes, of course monogamy and/or abstinence are the best ways to combat any std. Condoms do not have a high failure rate when used properly. The problem is that people don't know how to use them correctly and/or don't use them consistently.

    To whomever was saying that HIV doesn't show up in tests for months, from what I've read, the porn industry tests for the RNA of the virus, not the antibodies. The RNA test is more accurate, but more expensive and can detect the presence of HIV from 9-11 days after exposure.



  71. 71

    omg!!! AIDS in the PORN industry?! shocker! um really though, if you fuck numerous people who have fucked numerous people (aka porn) then youre a fucking idiot who is going to get a disease like aids…and the "16" other cases are only the ones reported…there are so many adult film stars, its realistic to assume that more than half have acquired an std…anyone who sells their body is willing to take that risk! why would anyone with self respect allow themselves to contract fatal diseases in the workplace?



  72. 72

    Re: dante725
    lmao…the porn industry is relatively small?! haha in america we have more adult film slaves than doctors…which is "sad" because pornstars dont receive health benefits so it looks like many of these people will never be tested or treated for stds…no one deserves a disease but everyone needs to be responsible and take precautions and not put themselves or others in these situations…porn is not a safe sex advocate and it is really ignorant to say that every slut has been in an adult film…ughhh

    Re: Annielisious
    Not sure where you learned this–but it's a myth. Latex based condoms form a continuous barrier that contains the virus.



  76. 76

    Re: Wuffeh
    Not sure where you are getting info on the failure rate–but I've never had one fail. Learn how to take them on/off correctly and buy reputable name brand products. Don't buy generic dollar store condoms that are made in China!



  77. 77

    those statistics are wrong, the additional 16 cases are from the PAST, not this outbreak… you'll see.



  78. 78

    These ppl know the risks they are taking. Occupational hazard. The Gay bareback films are even riskier



  79. 79

    Porn can be SUCH A BIG TURN OFF ! You know the blowjobs are SO FAKE, as are the "orgasms". It's a business, nothing more. And gross stuff too. Gay or straight…………a little goes a very looooooooooooooooooooong way, you know ?

    Re: Wuffeh – fucking idiot. Please dont procreate.

    Just gotta wrap that weasel!
    WEAR A CONDOM !!!!
    Then get FREAKY ;D



  82. 82

    Well, they knew the risks when they got into the business.



  83. 83

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I hope none of my CUTE Asian PORNstresses are infected. I LOVE my Asian porn and those exceedingly hot girls. My prayers go out to them. Peace.



  84. 84

    porn is porn, and you will find people will buy a movie that does not show safer sex. people wanna see the money shot, they don't wanna see a rubberized dick or a dental dam over the vulva. they want everything bareback and bare-all. so yeah, it isn't the porn indusstry, it is the people that buy it so the industry gives them what they want, HIV or not. it's a vicious cycle and one that will never end as long as millions and millions of people keep buying the porn that does not have safer sex.



  85. 85

    Re: Wuffeh – you said "be responsible". And isn't being responsible pretcting yourself(ex:condoms)?. You just contradicted yourself!.lol
