News: Former porn stars rally behind industry-wide condom use (ABC News)

nyFormer porn star, Cameron Bay describes how she discovered she was HIV Positive after just a few months in the industry.  Bay stood up alongside other former porn stars who have also contracted the disease, in order to call for industry-wide condom use.

The recent rise in HIV-affected actors and actress speaking out against the porn industry has caused two industry-wide moratoriums on shooting within just one month.  The most recent ban on shooting is due to be lifted this week.

HIV AIDS advocates have also spoken out in support of the new campaigners.  They state that these former porn stars could have been protected if the appropriate regulations requiring condoms were in place.  They also caution against a tendency for people to trust the medical advice coming from pornographers and insist that the state public health services are the authority on health matters.

Some industry agents responded to this latest meeting in Hollywood, including Kink.com an agent that actually represented some of the former porn stars speaking out.  They stated that none of the actors contracted HIV whilst at work and that all actors are fully aware that they can “request a condom at any time…and that they control the scene…we take consent and safety seriously”.

However, former porn star Bay says “you don’t really mean much to them [the industry], except for your reliability and money-making”.
