“Porn Biz Shut Down Again Over Yet Another HIV Case” (The third time in one month!)


Tragically a third pornography performer has tested positive for HIV and the porn industry is once again shutting down. The performer is said to be female, but as of this posting no more details of their identity are confirmed. Hopefully this sad situation will encourage the California legislature to approve AB 640 to stop the porn industry from continually trying to avoid complying with basic health and safety standards. More info on the overall situation is below:

[L.A. Weekly] — The porn industry was being asked to shut down production again after another performer has tested positive for HIV.

The adult video trade group known as Free Speech Coalition today asked for a voluntary “moratorium on all production until further notice.” An official at the L.A.-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation told the Weekly that the organization believes this is the third case of HIV to hit the industry in the last few weeks:

The official said the latest performer to come up positive might be connected to a July 31 shoot for kink[dot]com called “Public Disgrace” in which patient zero Cameron Bay performed. [Added at 7:25 p.m: This doesn’t appear to be the case. See more in an update below].

A man reported to be her boyfriend, Rod Daily, outed himself on Twitter as the second performer to come up positive. He has worked in both gay and straight porn.

The Free Speech Coalition, through its Performer Availability Screening Services arm, says that more details on the latest positive will be released later.

It states simply that “another performer has tested positive for HIV.”

It’s the second industry shut down since Aug. 21, when Bay’s status set off what might now be described as an outbreak.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has expressed outrage over the situation, given that the industry is under an L.A. county law mandating condom use on-set. Even if the latest positive is connected to a Bay Area shoot, California workplace safety authorities have said that condoms are the rule statewide, too.

They just don’t have the resources to enforce the regulation.

AHF filed a complaint with state authorities last month over the kink[dot]com shoot that involved multiple performers in a scene: The group says condoms were not used.
