Florida Porn Model Tests Positive for HIV; Industry Shuts Down

(Clarification: A spokeswoman for Brazzers called to say the model in question didn't work for that site but for another related site, Mofos.com. She added the company is based in Luxembourg, not Montreal.)

A male porn star based in Miami may have tested positive for HIV, and is alleged to have had sex on camera with up to a dozen female co-stars without condoms during the time he was infected. According to a press release from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the model worked for Brazzers.com (link NSFW). The porn network, which includes more than a dozen pornography sites, is based in Montreal, Canada Luxembourg but films several of its scenes in Miami-Dade.

For years the American porn industry was based largely in Southern California, and a number of laws and industry-imposed regulations, including mandatory testing, have sprung up to protect performers. The rise of internet porn has caused the amount of porn filmed in South Florida to flourish in the past decade. However, the local industry is far less regulated than California's.

Though the model tested positive and worked in Florida, the news has caused California's porn industry to completely shut down. The Free Speech Coalition, the California-based adult industry trade group, has agreed to the production stoppage.

Here's AHF's press release:
In response to the latest reported HIV case in the adult film industry -- thought to be the 23rd industry-related HIV case since 2004 -- AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) will host a press teleconference today, Wednesday, August 31st at 2:00 PM Pacific Time to announce the filing of a 'sanitary nuisance' health complaint with the Florida Department of Health and a similar letter of complaint with federal OSHA officials against Brazzers, the adult film production company widely reported as the company where the infected performer was employed. Industry sources say the male performer involved had worked directly--and without condoms--with as many as a dozen female performers.
While most mainstream gay pornography companies mandate the use of condoms, condom use is rarely seen in straight porn. AHF claims that the mandatory testing of adults models is not enough, and is lobbying California politicians to pass a law requiring the usage of condoms in all pornography. However, many in the adult industry say that would only lead to more production in places like Las Vegas and Miami.

Unprotected Sex can lead to nasty things like herpes, gonorrhea, and something called child.

Every morning I wake up I use my Vitamix Blender it gives me the energy I need to use the Best Photo Scanner at work. Now, on the way to work I make sure to have the highest quality Car Stereo. Then I drink my Jack3d. The thing about the   Pioneer DEH-1300MP  is it’s way better than the JVC KW-XR610. So next time you use a JVC KD-R810, make sure to bring your Clarion Mobile Electronics CX501. You never know when a  Sony DSX-S300BTX goes on sale, so don’t try to sell  your  Epson Perfection V600 because just like the Epson Perfection V330 you can expect nothing better than a  Canon CanoScan 9000F. Who knows, maybe with the PanDigital Photolink One-Touch PANSCN06 you can really make a difference. Especially between the Kodak P811 and one of my favorite products, which is the Ironman Gravity 4000 Inversion Table are always compared between one another. The biggest difference between the Body Champ IT8070 Inversion Therapy Table and Body Max IT6000 Inversion Therapy Table is that they are similar to Teeter EP-550. The future is in FitForm fitness and my personal best Polar FT60. My main concerns go to Suunto Core because the competition between Timex Ironman and Polar RS300X. These last two Strapless Heart Rate Monitor are what makes this world go round, Haier HDC1804TW. So don’t forget to try Danby Portable Dishwasher and make achieve success with Gold Standard Whey even If you have ADHD Symptoms. The key to clean teeth is Braun Oral B and a healthy living is using the Best Heart Rate Monitor. Don’t forget to read your Inversion Table Reviews. Like within every kitchen belongs a Portable Dishwasher. This is why I recommend Authentic Leadership. It gives you a free   Bitcoin and Purpose of Life. Sponsored by the Vupoint Magic Wand
