HIV Spreading Among Adult Film Actors

Tuesday, 27 September 2005 12:00 AM

Despite the best efforts of doctors in Los Angeles County, the AIDs virus is spreading among porn film 'actors' there.

Four actors recently tested positive for HIV infection, even though the adult film industry has adopted a program of voluntary screening, according to an article in the government's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

When the researchers traced the spread of the infection, they found a frightening chain of transmission that shows just how quickly the deadly virus can spread when given the chance.

And the adult film industry certainly provides a rich setting for HIV to spread.

There are about 200 different porn film production companies in L.A. County, employing some 1200 workers, the report says.

Furthermore, the porn film workers engage in direct work-related sexual contact that is often prolonged and performed without condoms.

This viral outbreak started when a 40-year-old HIV-negative man went to Brazil in February and had unprotected sex while making a film there. Soon, back in California, the man had unprotected sex with 13 different women on film in March and April.

The man tested positive for HIV on April 9. The next month, three of the women he'd had sex with were infected as well.

The researchers conclude that adult film workers need to become more aware of the risks, be allowed to make decisions about their health and safety at work, and 'benefit from prevention practices.' .
