STD and HIV Outbreaks in the Porn Industry Since the 1980's
1980's - In the 1980s, an outbreak of HIV led to 27 deaths among porn stars between 1985 and 1989 to include porn actors and actresses, John Holmes, Wade Nichols, Marc Stevens and Al Parker.
1992 - Female porn star Dusty was infected with HIV. She performed in around 150 original porn films.
1993 - Carrie Morgan was infected with HIV.
1995 - Female porn star Barbara Doll was infected with HIV.
1997 - Nena Cherry was a popular porn actress who performed in over 100 porn films and was infected with HIV. Female porn star Jordan McKnight was infected with HIV. Jordan worked with Marc Wallice who was infected in 1998.
1998 - HIV outbreak which infected an indeterminate number of actors (including Tricia Devereaux, Brooke Ashley, Caroline and Kimberly Jade) who had been working with actor Marc Wallice. Ashley eventually sued Wallice, claiming that she had been infected on the set of The World's Biggest Anal Gangbang. Marc Wallice had worked with Barbara Doll, Brooke Ashley, Caroline, Delfin, Jordan McKnight, & Tricia Devereaux all in unprotected anal scenes using none of the safe adult practices listed above, and all of these performers tested positive for HIV.
1999 - Male straight porn star Tony Montana and a Florida female performer tested HIV positive.Tony Montana who performed in approximately 500 films prior to going down to Florida. He had performed in scenes with Marc Wallice and ith Misty Dawn (who is better known as Laurie Holmes as she was married to John Holmes shortly before he died of Aids/HIV in 1988. Tony Montana also did a scene with transsexual Caroline who was HIV positive 1998. It is more than likely transs-xual Caroline had infected Tony Montana 1999.
2000 - Female porn star Niki Lae was infected with HIV. She only did ten original porn films.
2001 - Female porn actress Tori Coca Flame was infected with HIV. She did a film with Eric Stone who died from AIDS in 1996. If Eric Stone did infect Tori Coca Flame, it apparently took 5 years for the Aids virus that must have been dormant in her system to become HIV active and show up in the blood test results, or she may not have bothered to get a blood test again until 2001. Eric Stone did both gay porn and straight porn. More straight male performers do gay porn under different names and are called crossovers.
2003 - Straight and gay male performer Mark Anthony was infected with HIV. With Mark Anthony, instead of going from gay to straight, he went from straight to gay. The girls he did straight porn with are lucky he only did gay films and never crossed back over to straight. He was only in about ten gay porn films before he was diagosed with HIV.
2004 - Major HIV Outbreak In April 2004 that rocked the porn industry when male porn star Darren James tested positive for HIV after he had unprotected sex with Brazilian female porn actress Bianca Biaggi who was HIV+. Ater he tested positive on April 12, 2004 he infected Jessica Dee, Lara Roxx, and Miss Arroyo. The same year transsexual Jennifer tested positive for HIV. About sixty actors who had had contact with James or Roxx were barred from working until their next round of HIV testing was completed and they were declared HIV negative. A further estimated 130 actors were tested and also received an HIV-negative result. A total of six actors were diagnosed with the virus by the end of the moratorium: one male and four females, including one transsexual.
2009 - In June 2009, AIM Healthcare Foundation reported that an unnamed female porn performer testec positive for HIV. At the same time Los Angeles County health officials said there have been 16 previously unpublicized confirmed cases of HIV in adult film industry performers since 2004.
2010 - Derrick Burts, male porn star who tested HIV-positive said that he thought he would be protected from infection because he used condoms on gay porn sets and was tested before working in straight productions. Burts, 24, had worked as a “crossover” star in gay and straight films for several months before learning in October that he was HIV-positive.
2011 - Unidentified performer tested positive for HIV. This caused the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation to being campaigning with ex porn stars to get a measure placed on the city's June 2012 ballot that would require adult film performers to use condoms for porn filmmakers to obtain L.A. city filming permits.In the 2012 election voters in Los Angeles were presented with Measure B ("Safer Sex In the Adult Film Industry Act") which require porn performers to use condoms while engaged in sex acts, to provide proof of blood borne pathogen training course, to post permit and notices to performers, and making violations of the ordinance subject to civil fines and criminal charges.The measure passed with 57% voting for and 43% voting against. Vivid Entertainment and California Productions as well as performers Kayden Kross and Logan Pierce sued the county in January to prevent the new law, the Los Angeles County Safer Sex in the Adult Industry Act, from being enacted. On Friday, August 16, 2013 the porn industry lost their fight when U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson wrote that the requirement to wear condoms was not unconstitutional, as claimed by plaintiffs.
2012 - Veteran male porn star Rocco Siffredi told XBIZ Friday that there are “89 to 100” adult performers currently infected with syphilis in three different Eastern European cities where porn is regularly shot — Budapest, Hungary; Prague, Czech Republic; and St. Petersburg, Russia. With so much competition in the U.S., popular American porn stars fly to Europe to get work and often bring back diseases into the US. Hungarian Porn actress Aletta Ocean who worked five months in 2009 in the US divulged she was one of the infected stars who contracted syphilis in Hungary.
Male porn star Mr. Marcus was the central person in an outbreak of syphilis among porn-performers leading to a hold on filming. Marcus was first diagnosed with syphilis on July 12 2012, by his personal doctor and received a shot of penicillin the next day. On July 14, 2012, Marcus went for another routine medical test with Talent Testing Services (TTS), which had added syphilis to its standard tests two weeks previously. This test was positive but was only a day after the injection. He waited the recommended ten days from the initial test and was retested by TTS on July 21. The test was still positive but his doctor informed him that it was safe, he was not contagious and that his body would always show a base level reading for the infection.
Marcus returned to work on July 24, and due to his history and reputation in the industry he was not asked for the full test and just showed the producer a copy on his cellphone, enabling him to hide the rapid plasma reagin (RPR) section relevant to syphilis. For a different production, Marcus faked paper documentation by folding the page of the original to hide the RPR results and making a photocopy.
On June 4, 2013, Marcus was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 36 month probation for "knowingly exposing at least two co-stars to syphilis after testing positive for the disease days earlier." Also he is currently being sued by fellow performer Lylith LaVey because of the outbreak.
2013 - In June 2013, a gay male performer tested positive for HIV in one of the routine, pre-shooting blood tests for Men.com. The anonymous performer had only worked on condom-only movies.
In August 2013, female porn actress Cameran Bay tested positive for HIV. Porn industry halted production AGAIN while sex partners of the performer are now undergoing tests. Cameron Bay told AVN: "I don't sleep around, I don't do anything crazy, and I keep track of the people that I've worked with." Yet she has several escort ads posted offering services such as Girlfriend Experience, Porn Star Experience and couples.
Yes porn stars are prostitutes like I keep saying! And for the right price porn star prostitutes will have unprotected sex not only on the set but off the set.
