    ATLANTA — A gay porn star infected two other individuals — one another performer — with HIV despite testing negative less than a month before, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported last week in what it’s calling the “first well-documented” such case.

    According to researchers, in 2014 a 25-year-old gay porn actor, “Patient A” in the report, tested negative for HIV and over the next 22 days had unprotected sex with 17 others. The next HIV test came back positive and further testing showed he’d transmitted the virus to two men, one of whom was another adult film performer.

    In the report titled “Occupational HIV transmission Among Male Adult Film Performers,” the CDC reports:

    • Patient A tested positive for HIV and rectal gonorrhea after six days of symptoms. Ten days before the symptoms began, he’d tested negative for HIV.

    • During the 22 ensuing days after the first test, Patient A had sex with 12 male performers in work for two different production companies. He also provided contact information for five male non-work-related sexual partners he’d had during the month prior to symptom onset.

    • Neither Patient A nor any of his interviewed sexual partners were on PrEP.

    • Through tracing of HIV sequences, researchers said Patient A was likely infected by a non-work-related partner and that Patient A then likely infected both a coworker during the second production and a non-work partner.

    The CDC said testing alone is “not sufficient” to prevent HIV transmission.

    “Condom use provides additional protection from HIV and sexually transmitted infections,” CDC officers said in the report. “Performers and all persons at risk for HIV infection in their professional and personal lives should discuss the use of PrEP with their medical providers.”

    Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, said the porn industry failed this individual, who has not been named.

    “For years adult film producers have claimed that their testing program works and that performers who tested HIV-positive while working in the industry did not contract HIV at work, but became infected through exposure in their personal lives away from adult film sets,” he said. “Today’s report from the CDC puts truth to that industry lie.”

    If you're getting paid to have sex on cam, why bother having sex for free? Unless there actually were transactions and they didn't disclose that fact.

    So what porn model dropped out the game in 2014 who's also about 28 now?

    Well to my understanding...porn is work. The actor/s are sometimes paid to have sex with persons they don't want to have sex with.

    Hell, I've had sex with males and a single female that I didn't want to have sex with for free.

    Well, that's how Melvin Van Peebles got paid workers comp for screwing women and catching an STI while filming "Sweet Sweetback" lol

    Sadly, this news just had to come out of ATL. Will the freeway collapse slowdown the rates of transmission there? Causation, correlation and all that....

    So they were all out there having high risk sex with high risk people/no condoms but were NOT USING PREP!!!! -none of the ones they interviewed!!!

    cpnoway:lawd::mindblown:

    *On a somewhat related note...I did also see that Tiger Mandingo(Michael Johnson)got his conviction overturned because the prosecution withheld evidence until the very day of the trial. That trial was a sham and a shame. At the least he deserves a new and fair trial.

    I stopped at the "had sex with 17 other people 22 days after testing negative" statement. I have been a certified HOE before, but DAMN!

    The adult entertainment don't give a fuck about the CDC and STDs. There needs to be a "This is the Fucking Truth about the Industry 101" by law before putting at least one toe in it. I can only imagine the 17 people passing the infection on and the cycle breeding more. Absolutely sad!!!!!

    I think you're thinking of his son Mario, who was about 12 or 13, and opens the film with a scene that is questionable. Melvin, the father, was basically the Jordan Peele/Get Out of his day (1971). He made the movie with a small loan from Bill Cosby, who only wanted his initial investment back. The movie went on to (unexpectedly) make millions and created the whole Blaxploitation vibe for the 70s. Melvin said the love scenes were real and unsimulated and that he contracted an STD on the set, for which he famously applied for workers comp as a union actor and used the payout to keep filming.

    Mario is in the opening scene in the movie, which I find a bit disturbing in the same way that Brooke Shields was used in "Pretty Baby" when I saw it on HBO as a kid (use of a minor actor in an adult themed mainstream film). While I recognize the film's historic value---it led to all the films that followed like Shaft, Three the Hard Way, Slaughter, et al---I still agree with Lerone Bennett that the movie is pure cinematic garbage (and a shitty soundtrack from EW&F before they were famous). Siskel and Elbert gave it two thumbs up when I was a kid, so when I finally saw it as an adult, I questioned their judgment and sanity.

    Bringing this back to the original post, I take issue with the whole homophobic tone of the original Washington Blade headline "GAY ACTOR infects others!!"; it reinforces the whole gay is dirty thing. So, shame gay porn acting among consenting adults, but when heterosexuals fuck FOR REAL in "mainstream" movies from Sweet Sweetback to In the Realm of the Senses, to Short Bus, Base Moi, and others, just pass over any contracted diseases or potential contractions as anecdotes and art, not slut shaming like for this gay porn person.

    THANKS FOR THE FULL INFO ' RICO ' . I SAW THE MOVIE A FEW TIMES AND IT WAS NOT GOOD BUT I UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEMS BLACK ACTORS HAD MAKING FILMS IN THOSE DAYS. IT HAS BECOME SOME TYPE OF CULT-FAVORITE TO MOST FOLKS FOR OPENING DOORS. DID YOU SEE ACTOR ' ADAM WEST - AKA BATMAN ' IN IT? LOL. BUT THAT SCENE OF MARIO ON THAT HOOKER WAS DISTURBING. THEY ALL WERE REALLY NAKED. > BUT YOU PRAY AND MOVE ON AND DO BETTER <
