Moratorium lifted on porn production after HIV positive test


UPI News Service, 08/28/2013 

An adult film industry group said it has lifted a moratorium on porn production one week after an actress tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Free Speech Coalition imposed the moratorium last week after actress Cameron Bay tested positive for the virus. Since that time, all of her on-screen sexual partners have been tested and found to be free of the virus, the organization said.

The FSC said Wednesday it lifted the moratorium and producers were free to resume filming, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Medical consultants are expected to consider this week requiring porn performers to be tested every 14 days for sexually transmitted disease, the newspaper said. Performers currently are tested every 28 days.

The shutdown came as the porn industry fights a Los Angeles County referendum -- approved last year -- requiring adult film actors to use condoms when filming sex acts.

A federal judge ruled this month the law does not violate constitutional free speech guarantees.
