The Porn Moratorium (Pornoratorium?) is Over

Porn Moratorium

Porn addicts rejoice! An adult film industry trade group announced that porn shooting can resume Friday after a two-week moratorium prompted by three new HIV cases in the community.

The adult film industry’s trade association originally called for a moratorium in August after a 28-year-old female performer, Cameron Bay, tested positive for HIV, effectively putting an end to her once promising career that included scenes with Xander Corvus — the man who starred as scandal-laden politician Anthony Weiner in Sydney Leathers’ just released porn debut “Weiner and Me.”

“As difficult as this news is for me today, I am hopeful that no other performers have been affected,” Bay said in a statement, “I plan on doing everything possible to assist the medical professionals and my fellow performers. Following that, my long term plan is to take care of myself and my health.”

Shortly after that moratorium was lifted, Rod Daily, another porn actor who is Bay’s real-life boyfriend, announced on Twitter (why not?) that he also had HIV. Then a third adult actor tested positive, prompting the latest porn freeze.

However, the coalition says all three appear to have contracted the virus in private life and all of their on-screen partners have tested negative. Therefore, porn is totally safe.

The HIV scare did have some effect on the porn industry though. The industry said it would revise its rules on testing for sexually transmitted diseases, requiring porn starts to be tested every 14 days instead of every 28, and all actors will have to be tested on or before Thursday to be cleared for work.

Our industry protocols are designed to be conservative and our doctors support a conservative approach, for the health and well-being of the performers,” said Diane Duke, the porn coalition’s CEO.

Nothing says conservative approach like porn without protection. Now get back to work!
