APHSS Reports Male Performer Retests 'Negative' for Syphilis

Aug 8, 2013 1:00 PM PST

LOS ANGELES — Free Speech Coalition's Adult Performer Health and Safety Services (APHSS) on Thursday announced that the results from two separate confirmatory tests on the male performer thought to have possibly contracted syphilis have come back negative.

Doctors from both Cutting Edge and Talent Testing have coordinated their efforts to ensure that APHSS medical protocols were followed for male performer Clover, FSC reported.

The performer had also been in contact with the Licensed Adult Talent Agency Trade Association (LATATA) throughout the process.

APHSS industry protocols dictate that testing facilities utilize the TrepSure test a highly sensitive and specific test for syphilis—far more sensitive than a standard syphilis test. The result is, from time to time, the test will indicate a positive for syphilis when in fact the patient is negative, which is why APHHS protocols dictate that confirmatory tests are required with a positive TrepSure.

“Unlike [AIDS Healthcare Foundation], we choose to get our information from medical professionals rather than from the gossip or conjecture of bloggers,” said Diane Duke, FSC’s chief executive officer.  “Unfortunately AHF has gone on another witch hunt trying to cause a media frenzy by suggesting an ‘outbreak’ when the performer in question has tested negative. Patient privacy and respect are of utmost importance to us and we encourage responsible reporting rather than the spread of misinformation by rumor mill opportunists who may take this situation as prospect for media attention.”
