Moratorium On Porn Production Lifted After HIV Case Proves False

View Comments

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The advocacy group for the adult film industry has called off a production moratorium after just a day because a performer’s HIV test turned out to be a false positive.

The Free Speech Coalition said in a statement Friday that further testing showed that the porn performer does not have HIV, and tests of the person’s private and on-screen partners also came back negative.

The group had called for the industry-wide moratorium on Thursday after the unidentified performer had a test return positive. Such moratoriums aren’t binding but generally bring compliance within the industry.

With the negative test, the porn industry has yet to have a reported case of HIV in 2014, after three in 2013.
