HIV

Porn stars deserve to know the truth!!! Knowledge is power!

Not every person in the industry will agree with me, but I strongly believe that a performer has the right to know if the person they are about to have sex with is HIV positive.

Nothing you can tell me will change my mind on that fact.

I am sorry that a person who has contracted HIV feels stigmatized but I care more about the safety and well being of others in the industry.

If you are about to have sex with someone, you deserve to know if that person is HIV positive.

You know what they say … knowledge is power!

You can quote whatever article or source you want, it won’t change the facts and that is that if a performer is about to have sex with someone, at the very least they deserve the courtesy of being told their partner is HIV positive.

I do not understand how anyone could disagree with this statement.

    Absolutely disagree with naming and shaming a performer as THE risk after the fact. Everyone knows no matter how this event plays out FSC is going to say ‘it didn’t happen on a PASS regulated set’

    This week it is five years since I started commenting here on MikeSouth. I came out of the gate shouting from rooftops that the blame game was hurting not helping performers. I stand by that opinion today with gratitude the FSC, PASS etc have moved past the days of naming, shaming and blaming performers diagnosed with a known occupational risk.

    As soon as the performer is named the focus shifts to THEM as the risk; eliminating the opportunity for experienced performers to inform performers who haven’t been around long enough to remember 30 day moratoria, when PrEP wasn’t an option and waiting days not hours for test results. It’s a time for every performer to get quiet and compare their actual behaviors to the standards they profess and if necessary recommit to doing all they can to minimize risks to themselves and their partners.

    That publication traces a series of events that led to an on-set HIV transmission in 2014. The performer was tested with the current industry testing panel and the set the transmission happened on was following accepted industry protocols…it was a window positive.
