    Not surprisingly, the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation is dragging its heels on even a semblance of protecting sex workers in the porn world, as one woman who tested positive for HIV was allowed to "work" the following day. And meanwhile, due to the domino effect, another six people are now at risk of contracting the deadly, incurable, fatal and expensive to treat disease.

    Despite porn industry assurances that an adult film actress' recent positive HIV test is the first since a 2004 outbreak shut down production for a month, Los Angeles County health officials said Thursday that at least 16 additional unpublicized cases of HIV have been confirmed in adult film performers.

    The newly released data bring the number of HIV cases in porn performers in the last five years to 22, including the case disclosed this week.

    The report -- and what state and county health officials perceive as stonewalling by the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, which tests porn performers for sexually transmitted diseases -- is bringing renewed scrutiny to the estimated $12-billion-a-year industry's long history of resisting regulation and condom use.

    "AIM Healthcare has never been cooperative with us and our investigations," said Dean Fryer, a spokesman for the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health. So far, the San Fernando Valley-based clinic has declined to tell county or state officials the name of the performer or her employer.

    Human beings are nothing more than meat for sale, and the lives of the "workers" is of no value other than for whatever profits they bring to these "business" executives who own and produce pornography, a $12 Billion a year enterprise. It does not get much lower than this.

    the porn industry has been "devouring it's own" for decades...

    Anyhow, repressionist, how is this related to politics? Wouldn't this get more of a response in the "worship as I do" forum?

    protecting oneself from HIV is a persons own responsibility not someone elses.... you have a choice to first work in this industry and protect yourself...

    Isn't the porn industry run by Left Wing Liberal Democrats who think that Sarah Palins daughter should be stoned to death because she got knocked up...:singing:

    MADONNA "hey did you hear about that b!tch Sarah Palin's daughter getting laid before she was married"
    WHOOPI "yea, mother f-cking slut"
    "tee hee, giggle, wheeze, grunt, faster rosie, oh god arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"

    Terrible story. I saw this earlier. Everytime I watch some, I always think to myself "how are they not all getting diseases of some kind". They do everything, to everyone, everyday, and with HIV, and it's detection timetable, being what it is, no one is safe from potential disaster. HIV takes a minimum 2 weeks to detect, unless you do some expensive tests that might detect it sooner. Even at two weeks there is the posibility of a false negative, as the antibodies haven't sufficiently developed to be detected. If you figure 2 weeks, then an infected person could be positive, and boning everyone in sight, spreading the disease to multiple partners, causing a chain reaction that could become an epidemic to anyone invloved. Scary stuff really. Remember, these people work almost everyday in some cases, with mutliple partners. Ouch.

    Yeah, and this country has a choice between allowing such things as a porn industry -or- taking down the white flag and saying: "No way!"


    The "victimless" crime here is more than those who are doing the "acting" on the screen; the entire nation is forced to endure this spiritual, emotional, psychological dumbing down into utter garbage.

    If you wouldn't want your children or grand-children doing it, then it should not be allowed for anyone else's, either.

    Why is it that you can never disagree with someone without resorting to name-calling?? "repressionist"?? If you had a son or a daughter, how would you feel if they were thinking about getting into the porno trade?? And, even if you don't want to have sons or daughters of your own, is that any excuse to make use of other peoples' sons and daughters for your selfish pleasures?

    And you want to go on about "peak oil". The moral decline of America will destroy the nation infinitely sooner than any energy "crisis".

    Yeah, sure, the porn industry isn't going anywhere, prostitution isn't going anywhere, Craigslist isn't going anywhere. The Roman Empire wasn't going anywhere, the Greek Empire wasn't going anywhere, either. Those who play with fire always have to pay. Sooner or later.

    Fog, your entire approach to life is rooted in repression. Don't act shocked. There's progress, and there's conservatism, the opposite of progress. You want to censor and control all forms of art that displease you, as well as sexual freedoms, the internet, speech, and on and on and on. Your post history bares that out. You hate anything to do with flamboyance of expression. Don't act insulted when someone flatly recognizes your ideology at this point. It just makes it all even funnier.

    As for children, it's all about how they're raised, isn't it? Regardless, once aspiring porn stars are adults, it's curious that repressionists would try to control what others do within the law. What happened to personal responsibility? Or does that only apply when conservatives lose their "God-given" right to transfats at restaurants, or other petty inconveniences?

    It's a free country, and if Sally wants to fornicate on screen for money, that's her right. A dubious career choice, but not breaking any laws. And perhaps spicing up the sex lives of millions of onlookers mired in missionary monotony.

    As for your somewhat laughable and intangible assessment at the end, get back to me when the the "moral" compass of America is used to fertilize crops, deliver food, drive people to work, make plastics, provide refrigeration, medicines, etc., etc., etc.
