Trade Group Lifts Porn Moratorium After HIV Scare

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A porn industry group has lifted a week-old moratorium on adult film production that was prompted by an HIV scare.

The Free Speech Coalition lifted the ban late Tuesday after all performers who worked with HIV-infected actress Cameron Bay were medically cleared.

The coalition says a panel of three doctors concluded that it was safe to resume filming.

Vivid Entertainment Group and other large porn companies honored the moratorium, although it was unclear whether the many smaller producers did so or how many film shoots were canceled.

A similar work ban was enacted last year after nearly a dozen performers were infected with syphilis.

The industry currently is challenging a Los Angeles County law passed last year requiring actors to wear condoms during porn shoots.
