Porn Productions Immediately Cease After Actor Tests HIV Positive
Adult film sets around California were ghost towns this week after the industry issued a mandatory moratorium on production when an actor tested positive for HIV.
The performer was not immediately identified and officials didn't say when the positive test was recorded.
The actor's sex partners are currently being tested by doctors with Adult Production Health and Safety Services, which works with the porn industry.
"The moratorium will be lifted once the risk of transmission has been eliminated," Diane Duke, executive director of the industry trade group the Free Speech Coalition, told the Associated Press in an e-mail.
She added that the actor is not believed to have been infected on a film set.
