Adult Film Star Rod Daily Comes Out As HIV Positive

Adult film star Rod Daily made his announcement via Twitter. Daily has dated female porn star Cameron Day, who tested positive for HIV resulting in the shutdown of porn production in Los Angeles.

SF Gate reports:

A second actor for Kink.com, the San Francisco adult film company, announced Tuesday that he tested positive for HIV.

The actor, who goes by the screen name Rod Daily, wrote on his Twitter account that he contracted HIV in the past month. Kink.com's chief executive, Peter Acworth, said Daily and an actress known as Cameron Bay - who tested positive two weeks earlier - had been dating offscreen for at least six months.

The adult film industry's trade association, Free Speech Coalition, issued a moratorium on shooting following Bay's diagnosis. Her last shoot with Kink.com was on July 31, and all her onscreen partners have since tested negative for the disease, Acworth said.

Daily performed mostly in gay scenes, Acworth said. The industry standard is for actors in gay scenes to wear condoms to protect against transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms are optional for actors in straight scenes, but testing is mandatory.

"We can say with some degree of confidence that there was no transmission on set" involving Daily, Acworth said. "Rod Daily wore condoms in all his scenes. The strong indication is that Rod contracted it and transmitted it to Cameron Bay."

Beyond the blame game, we wish both individuals good health and we applaud Daily for being public with his status.

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address
DROKOJE@GMAIL.COM and I text this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken up I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him,i sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3 days.I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder.Behold,the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called up was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer,his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful, and his mobile number is +2348069652500 if you have HIV or any kind of disease just EMAIL HE  Drokoje@GMAIL.COM

My issue with this is that I'm certain if you go back into the history of Rod's scenes he's not ALWAYS wearing condoms.....I'm almost certain! Not condemning him or anything like that....I'm glad he found out and is not afraid to let it be known and not afraid to fight it....maybe within the last month he has used condoms every time....but definitely not always....and we all know it can sometimes take up to a year to show up.....so who knows....

While Rod Daily’s openness about becoming HIV positive may be commendable (if indeed he even had a choice in the matter), I don’t think that someone who preposterously states that “I have also learned that people can be so well medicated that they test negative” is to be applauded. That statement is horrendously, even dangerously, incorrect, and for someone—let alone someone in the adult film industry--even reasonably informed to have made it is appalling. If there’s anything good to come from this—yet another sad, unnecessary and entirely preventable—situation, I hope that it wakes some folks up. Condoms work when one uses them, and they don’t work when one doesn’t use them. Had Rod consistently used them, he wouldn't now be poz.

HIV testing should be mandatory for everyone. No permission or authorization beforehand from the patient. Just test everyone outright. Do it. That's the only way we're going to combat this disease in the long run: by getting real about it.

Gee, I was going to make a bad joke, but he's aggressive positive (that's wasn't the joke).  His attitude is kind of inspiring.

Here's hoping Mr. Daily gets the very best of care, and that early detection assists in effective treatment.  This can also be an indicator of how vital it is that everyone learn about PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) as an important tool of HIV prevention.  Used daily and consistently, it can significantly reduce the possibility of someone HIV negative becoming HIV positive.  It is approved by the FDA, and covered by most insurances.  Come learn more at https://www.facebook.com/groups/PrEPFacts or http://www.thebodypro.com/content/72565/putting-prep-into-practice-adopt...

How do you know Cameron didn't transmit it to Rod. Didn't she test positive for it a few months sooner than he did? Also why are condoms the standard in gay porn but optional in straight porn? 

Now, he can say : "Wear a condom when you f*$%k a man or girl" !!
