update pinky has had several stds (Vivid gets shut down by HIV)

One reckless porn star has managed to do what Kimmy Cakes, Paris Hilton and Laurence Fishburne only wish they could have done way before now: shut down production at Vivid Entertainment.

Vivid won’t be filming any new flicks for a while, now that one of their adult performers has tested HIV-positive. And we’re sure you can imagine how big of a deal this is in the porn world.

The case was confirmed to The Times on Tuesday by officials at the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, known as AIM, a Sherman Oaks clinic that primarily serves porn industry workers.

“We are quarantining and testing all exposed partners to the individual,” said Jennifer Miller, an HIV/STD counselor at the clinic.

Miller declined to disclose the gender of the person who tested positive, what companies he or she worked for, when the person was tested and whether AIM had notified state and county officials.

“We’re doing what we can to notify the individuals involved,” Miller said.

She said AIM officials plan to release more information at the end of the week.

In the meantime, Vivid Entertainment, based in Van Nuys, and Wicked Pictures, based in Canoga Park, both suspended production Tuesday, citing the positive HIV test.

“We did this as a precaution and will continue to monitor the situation,” said Steven Hirsch, Vivid’s founder and co-chairman. “We will wait for all of the facts to emerge before resume production.”

Wicked Pictures officials, who described their productions as “condom-mandatory,” said they halted filming to allow AIM to create a “comprehensive quarantine list.”

Diane Duke, executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, a Canoga Park-based porn trade association, said it was too early Tuesday to draw conclusions.

“What we know is someone tested HIV-positive; we don’t know the circumstances. What we do know is AIM has identified that someone is HIV-positive and is taking care of it,” Duke said.

For activists in California, including HIV-positive ex porn star Darren James, this is just proof once again that the porn industry needs to move to a “mandatory condom” policy across the board.

“I knew it was going to happen. And how many years has it been? Again. They went right back to the same habits,” James said.

James has emerged in the last year as a vocal advocate for mandatory condoms on porn sets. At a Cal/OSHA hearing in Orange County in March, James questioned the industry’s reliance on testing performers for HIV.

He reiterated that message Tuesday. “There should have been mandatory condoms. Good grief, it’s like my deal all over again. I hate that.”

The new case may fuel the continuing controversy over whether the industry does enough to protect performers.

State officials maintain condoms already are required under workplace rules that protect workers from exposure to bodily fluids. But the rules are widely flouted, and condoms are rarely used in straight porn films because producers say they depress sales. Some in the industry say the believe regular testing is sufficient to prevent the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

“This shows one more time why testing isn’t prevention,” said Deborah Gold, a Cal/OSHA senior safety engineer. “They are now going out and testing a whole bunch of other people to see if they can prevent more exposure, whereas the approach of Cal/OSHA is to prevent that exposure in the first place.”

Do you think it’s time for the porn industry to change it’s ways?

This is why I only watch Hentai. LOL Seriously, though in this day and age you wouldn't think that this would have to be told to the porn industry. I guess when it affects profits they will change their ways. smh
I don't think they will change, and I guess should they after this? That's an occupational hazzard..........If one construction worker falls off a roof and break his leg, the building still gets built. Their job is to f*** strangers, well thats the risk from the job.
Bwahahahahaha but the first time I watched porn my first question was....ewww are they raw dogging??? But I'm wondering who it is.....tick tock

I would love to know how many other times this has happened and they covered it up. Just made the "performer" retire or go away.
I fail to realize how they think they can prevent HIV/STDS by testing? Im sure they dont get tested everyday or b 4 every shoot and what happens if they have sex with someone in between who gave them something but it takes maybe a few months to show up...SMH There are everyday people that hollers Oh, I got tested..but umm boo, getting tested doesnt prevent HIV it only lets you know you already contracted it
Even in the flicks with condoms, condoms are only used during vaginal and anal penetration. And I have yet to see a dental dam. That means when they are performing oral and skeeting all in peoples mouths and faces (the eyes are definitely a great carrier of infections into the body), there is STILL the possibility for the transmission of infectious diseases. Also, pubic hair was designed as a type of protection for the genitalia. I'm not saying that it protects from diseases at all, but I am saying that it helps protect from bacteria and particles. All those bare genitals shouldn't be rubbing up against hundreds of partners, that just sounds gross, with all of that person's germs and bacteria and saliva and sweat and dead skin cells, ew! Besides all of the STDs and STIs, my ass would be scared of catching lice, chicken pox, and ringworm.
Mz. UCAN I've wondered that too. And you can edit out a condom why raw dog in porn anyway?
Surprised it took this long.
I bet LF is behind it. (I kid I kid)
I concur, WTF is Hentai?
