Actors Call On Porn Industry To Require Performers To Wear Condoms

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A pair of adult film actors recently infected with the AIDS virus are calling on the porn industry to require all performers to use condoms.

HIV-Positive Porn Stars Ask Industry To Demand Condom Use

The actors told reporters at a news conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday that a recent outbreak of HIV infections proves that industry officials are wrong when they say testing performers for HIV and other diseases every 14 days is sufficient.

Actors Cameron Bay and Rod Daily say they learned days apart last month that they were infected.

Although both were reluctant to criticize the porn industry, Bay painted a picture of carelessness on film sets.

She says she was on a recent movie set with an actor who was allowed to continue filming intimate scenes even after he cut himself and was bleeding.
