    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.



    [size=+5]More porn HIV cases disclosed[/size]
    [size=+2]L.A. County health officials say at least 16 performers have been infected in addition to one reported this week. That brings the number of HIV cases in porn performers to 22 in the last five years.[/size]

    June 12, 2009

    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...

    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.

    This isn't about "rights". Sally and you and all of us have the "right" to walk in front of a train or a semi on I-93. But is it "right" to exercise one's "right" to do that?? Again, think of a loved one, if nothing else.

    The key point you make is: "it's legal", so "no harm no foul" is the rationale. But again, is that "right"?? Once upon a time -- and for a very long time in America -- it wasn't legal. And not so long ago, either. Legalizing such a deadly exercise -- regardless of the "spicing up of lives" you purport it provides -- is simply to say: "Hey, if you want to play Russian Roulette, it's your life. I put a hundred on Mable to make through to the 'knock out' round." That's an a-moral compass if there ever was one.

    The future is truly bleak if such a commercialization of the value of life is what we have arrived at. Fortunately, there are millions in America who do not accept such a destination.

    Yes, it IS about how people are raised. And if children are born into a society where deadly practices are legalized merely for the purely selfish pleasure of some, such children will be scarred deeply with disillusion and despair.

    Maybe you never heard what Wilt Chamberlain said shortly before he died at the age of 63: "I've had sex with more than 20,000 women in my life, but I would trade that in a minute for having had sex with one women 20,000 times. I tried to settle down, but after a while it just didn't seem possible."

    That's quite the extrapolation. Anyhow, yes, it IS about rights. Rights that you can not control, no matter how hard you try.

    No one purposefully misrepresents my argument quite the way you do. I used to get angry about it, but I've accepted it as simply you doing what you do. It's your nature. (More on that word "nature" a bit later)

    Anyhow, back to being honest, I never said there was "no harm." Not once. I said that it's not illegal, and there's nothing repressionists can ever do about it. You could make the same argument regarding "deadly" vices like alcohol, transfats, tobacco and on and on. Those kill far more people, yet you seem consumed by, and focused upon, sex and sex acts. Why is that?

    Regardless, it comes down to personal responsibility, which, ironically, is usually the con man mantra, is it not?

    Here's a bit of a newsflash, clergyman: The future already IS truly bleak. But that has more to do with population explosion (more irony, considering the "make more babies" initiative comes from the church).

    blah blah blah... and where else would the Church of Fog like to intervene into his fellow Americans' lives? Twinkies are deadly selfish pleasure. Perhaps you should start a thread about that also.

    Wilt was hung like an elephant. This is simple supply/demand. :D

    Seriously, that final sentence is telling. He tried, but it wasn't possible. That's nature calling. You know, ... nature? The thing religio-nuts are constantly rejecting and insulating human beings from?

    Now, i'm sure as your rage meter increases, you'll be firing back with more incendiary accusations that I'm some porn peddler and "OK" with AIDS, or whatever your exaggeration of the week is.

    I believe in God, but I reject organized religion. More and more, each and every day, people are getting further turned off by repressionist rantings like your own. I'm sorry that frustrates you. ... But, well... "nature finds a way."

    Unfortunately for them they have built a product based on the wad shot. In most cases that is the highlight when a man is involved. Well ... you can't have this highlight with a condom on. They could work around it ... more story lines like the old days ... porn was better then ... sans the pubes of course. Not really into it myself so I could care less what happens to the industry. Watching 2 people go at it does nothing for me anymore. I'd rather watch 2 animals ... it's funny at least.

    No point in another pissing contest. "I have many things to tell you but you are not ready yet ..." comes to mind.

    Yes, indeed, nature finds a way ... and those who contradict the laws of nature eventually become extinct. .... or was it the astroids???

    Ah, well. Either way, we will see what happens. My money is on self-centered living going the way of the dodo bird. Living for the sake of others is the future.

    Peace.

    it was never his geopolitical belief system that got me angry... that's easy to mock.

    it's was his routine dishonesty regarding MY position.... the eternal straw man, if you will. well, that, and his default sentiment of "you'll-learn... hellfire is coming for you, sinner" for anyone who doesn't live and worship precisely as he does.

    Fog doesn't get me angry any longer. Anyone who honestly blames Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and Russia and porn for causing the simultaneous meltdown of European governments, the crash of the U.S. dollar, tripled energy prices? I mean, how can you be mad at that kind of dude? ya just shake your head.
