Porn production moratorium ends after testing
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California-based trade group for the adult film industry has lifted a moratorium on production spurred by a feared HIV exposure on an out-of-state film set.
The Free Speech Coalition ended the five-day production hold Monday, saying in a statement that testing has been completed and “the performer pool has not been compromised.”
The group first called for a three-day moratorium that was extended through the weekend. It said a performer might have been exposed to HIV last month during off-set sexual contact with another performer who wasn’t observing the industry’s protective protocols.
The organization didn’t name the state where the film set was located.
The group’s head Diane Duke said she knows the lack of information provided in such cases is frustrating, but medical privacy is essential for performers.
