Industry Puts Itself Under Two-Month Moratorium After Two Actors Test Positive
An adult film actress is screened for HIV Thursday in California.
LOS ANGELES (April 16) - An AIDS scare prompted adult movie companies to halt production and bar dozens of performers from the set after two actors tested HIV-positive.
At least 45 actors and actresses were under a voluntary work quarantine and about a dozen companies were adhering to a voluntary two-month moratorium until new HIV tests are completed, industry experts said.
''It's very scary,'' said Mary Carey, a porn star who ran for governor of California last fall. ''This is kind of a wake-up call for everybody.''
Carey said she had not worked with the infected actor but as a precaution, she was canceling a lesbian porn shoot.
