porn stars

I read that porn stars test every month with a ultra sensative test seems that one porn star named Marc Wallice faked his hiv test results and infected 6 women.

I also heard that the ponography industry uses the PCR test regularly.

It is true that porn stars are required to be tested but, as you know, nothing is 100% foolproof. I think I remember hearing about Mark Wallace, and of course a number of years ago John Holmes was also HIV+, although I believe he contracted it by injecting drugs.

I recently saw a show on MTV (not a great source of information, I know) called "True Life," and that night's episode was about people who were HIV+, one of whom happened to be a female porn star. She explained how they were routinely tested every 6 months, but one time she was called into her agent's office and given the news that she had tested positive.

I'm not going to pass judgement on porn stars, because if that's how they choose to live their lives it's fine by me. But it is high-risk behavior, and it's not surprising that they occasionally test positive. After all, they are human too, and just as susceptible to contracting HIV as the rest of us when they put themselves at risk. It's sad that anyone should have to face this disease, of course, and Mark Wallace should not be putting his co-stars at risk by lying about the results of his HIV test. But it just serves as another lesson as to why all of us should be safe in our sexual practices.

I would think porn stars would have to test for HIV more often than every six months! From what I understand Marc Wallace didn't lie about his status, he fell into the window period of when a test will show you positive. The porn star on MTV did a gang bang movie that had about six guys having sex with her. One or more of the guys had to be infected with HIV. This is a good lesson for all to learn about transmission of HIV and the window period for showing up in the blood. I don't think condoms were used in either cases addressed above. Just b/c you have a test stating you don't have HIV we need to smart about how we have sex and with who. Please stay safe!

Are you saying this guy tested with PCR at one month, and was still infected? I don't think there are any documented cases of that

That sounds more likely than the "he was in the window period" story.

Well....this subject has really gotten heated! Nobody really knows who had what and when. Porn stars work daily and could contract HIV one day and pass it on the next. No test or condom are 100%...this is the real issue here. The two porn stars talked about here are not the only porn stars in the industry to test positive! When we choose to have sex we are putting ourselve at risk no matter what test or precaution you take. And one more thing, HIV is not the only std out there. Hep A,B, and C, herpes, are few to think about!!!!!!! Please play safer!!!!!
