Adult Film Performer Tests Positive for HIV; No Further Transmission
CANOGA PARK, Calif. — An adult film performer has tested HIV-positive, the APHSS.org said today.
The performer, according to APHSS.org, worked exclusively on condom-only productions. The performer's identity and sex were not released by the group.
However, according to The Sword, multiple sources say that it was a male gay porn performer who tested positive for HIV.
"The positive results came back after routine testing for a scheduled shoot with Men.com," The Sword said. "Given that Men.com’s shoots are condom-only, it’s highly unlikely that the performer contracted HIV while on set."
Men.com is owned and operated by Manwin.
APHSS.org said that performers who worked with the subject were retested and each came back with negative test results.
"APHSS.org supports adult industry standards for performer STI testing and upholds industry protocols in the event of an exposure incident," APHSS.org said.
Adult industry trade association Free Speech Coalition operates APHSS.org, known formally as Adult Production Health & Safety Services.
