Production at two Hollywood porn studios has been shut down following the news one unidentified adult star has tested positive for HIV.
The diagnosis, confirmed on Tuesday (12Oct10) by a counsellor at a Sherman Oaks, California clinic frequented by adult actors and actresses, has sent shockwaves through the porn industry, and bosses at Vivid Entertainment and Wicked Pictures have taken immediate measures to ensure no other stars are put at risk.
The positive HIV test is the first reported since last year (09) when an adult-film actress was infected with the virus. No one else in the industry was infected as a result.
