HIV Alert In California After Porn Actor Tests Positive

Share This Story

Public health officials in California have issued an HIV alert after finding “very strong evidence” that an adult film actor tested positive for the virus after an out-of-state film shoot.

The actor had tested negative before the shoot, in which he engaged in unprotected sex with several other male actors. The scene was broken up into two different shoots, and by the second one it was clear that something was wrong.

“During the second film shoot, he had symptoms of a viral infection,” the alert states. ‘The actor went to a clinic and had another blood test that showed he had recently become infected with HIV.”

An actor from the second shoot has since tested positive as well, and officials say he probably got HIV from the first.

Pornography companies have long denied that there is a risk of getting HIV during their shoots, but this is far from the first time this has happened.

“It’s happened before, it’s happened now, and it will happen in the future,” said Michael Weinstein, president of the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “The big lie the industry has been saying all these years, there are no on-set transmissions, has been proven to be untrue.”
