Positive HIV Test Again Halts Porn Filming

Another porn actor has tested positive for HIV, which may refuel arguments in favor of mandatory condoms in the industry. In the meantime, industry trade group the Free Speech Coalition has placed a moratorium on new filming until everyone who worked with the unidentified actor can be tested, reports the Los Angeles Times. Though the filming ban is not binding, the recommendation is usually obeyed, the AP notes.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation calls the case a “tragic” repeat of last year when the porn industry was under a similar moratorium after three actors tested positive for HIV. The foundation successfully pushed for a law requiring performers to use condoms, but it applies only to Los Angeles city and county. The industry resists mandatory condoms, though it does now require HIV testing every two weeks, as opposed to every 28 days.
