Porn Star Tests Positive For HIV

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A San Fernando Valley health clinic that
serves the adult film industry says an actress has tested positive
for HIV.

The Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation said Wednesday
that initial HIV tests of the woman's partners have come up
negative, but they are not being allowed to perform and are being
encouraged to test again in two weeks.

The case is the first publicly confirmed HIV infection in the industry in Southern California since 2004 when an HIV outbreak
shut down porn production for a month.

County Public Health Director Dr. Jonathan Fielding says his office received no reports about the incident by Wednesday
afternoon but would launch an investigation.

    this is the most banal conversation I have ever read, I only kept going because I was hoping there was a modicum of sense in there somewhere. It may surprise you that issues don't cleave easily down republican/democrat, straight/gay lines and that disease doesn't care which God you worship. Sex is glorious, none of us would be here without it and sometimes porn actors fill a void in people's lives. They also make money and take risks for it, sometimes willingly, sometimes out of anger or... here's the scary bit, sometimes for fun. As far as the homosexual/heterosexual transmission thing... sex without a condom whether it be straight/gay/boy/girl/husband/wife/hooker/whatever can transmit HIV, but it is rare and tragic when transmission occurs. So please get off your high horses and have a little understanding that it does just happen and is not a marker of divine wrath. Live and let live a little... please!

    GBHB - keep up the good fight, I haven't checked this thread in a week and it looks like I missed a good debate (meaning your side was supported by evidence, while the other was supported by personal opinion).

    People contract HIV everyday , if you are gonna report on just one of the cases. It would be nice to report a name or don't report it. I feel I wasted my time reading the article,but just wanted to let you guys know.

    Call it a job hazard. Wonder if worker's comp will pay for it.

    Another Bob: That TV show would be an hour of one person citing facts from credible sources while another person claims that nursing text books have the wrong information and focuses on stereotypes from the past that he uses to justify his hatred. That would get old fast unless the latter person would actually find some evidence to back up his claims, which would never happen. Yeah, that show would get old fast until OSOC got fired.

    Another Bob-you are quite welcome.

    To Bob, GBHB, and OSOC. Thanks for an entertaining afternoon. You guys should get a TV show. It'd be WAY more interesting than either "The View" or "Oprah."

    BTW Bob, Obama Snake Oil Co. clearly stated the most common way to get HIV/AIDS is from man to man. Well according to the CDC. 54% of infected people were indeed homosexual. But here is the kicker. It does not mean it is the most common way to get AIDS. It just means that of the people tested, 54% were homosexuals. Most homosexuals will probably not use a condom. You want to know why? It is because they cannot get each other pregnant! Most people prefer not to use condoms, even straight people. Since there are more straight people with HIV/AIDS, then the most common way to get the disease is from the easiest way to transmit it, from an infected man to an unifected woman. It might do you some good if you turned off Fox News and picked up a unbiased book sometime. You really can learn a lot. Here is a few links you should read http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources/factsheets/oralsex.htm and http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/women/index.htm

    Bob-guess what bob more straight people have HIV/AIDS than homosexuals. Percentages can be misleading. Did you learn that in school? I am a little curious Bob what are your several degrees in?
