HIV in Porn: Halt Calif. Shoots, Health Groups Says
October 15, 2010
The recent HIV case in an adult-film performer has AIDS Healthcare Foundation calling on Californias pornography industry to temporarily halt production. AHF President Michael Weinstein says an industry-wide closure is the right thing to do to protect the health of other adult-film actors. At least half a dozen companies have already halted production, including Vivid Entertainment and Wicked Pictures. The HIV diagnosis was made by the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, a San Fernando Valley-based clinic that caters to actors in the industry. Clinic officials say they are working to identify and notify actors who may have worked with the HIV-positive actor to conduct testing.
