#InTheNews: Porn Princess Puts Pause On Poon Peddling

Words by Chan Bam

NBC news reports that adult film sets across the L.A area have shut down indefinitely after a porn star, who goes by the name Cameron Bay, tested positive for HIV this week.

The trade group called a suspension on production, mid-week, as they allow all of Bay’s partners to be notified and tested.

This incident brings light to the ongoing opposition of a recent ratification that requires porn actors to wear condoms on the set… #duh #nobrainer

Michael Weinstein, head of L.A.- based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, states he believes Bay contracted the virus while “working.” The industry group expresses disagreement with this statement but Weinstein states the actor tested negative for HIV, then this month positive.

While there may not be “hard” evidence (#PunIntended), Bay’s being reported as compliant and cooperative with public health officials in the investigation and tracking down of all her partners.

There are also reports that Bay’s boyfriend is allegedly gay, which are further fueling the controversial fire.

While this is tragic news for the actor, let it serve as a reminder — HIV isn’t limited to porn sets — it’s no respecter of persons — so strap up and protect yourselves, your loved ones and the ones you’re lovin on, even if for one night. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
