Syphilis shuts down porn world

Posted in In the News on Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

As I write this, more then 1,000 performers are being tested, re-tested and are administered antibiotics. Yes a disease has struck again in the porn world – and it’s not AIDS, but it’s still annoying. This time around – the porn world has been grinded to a complete halt because of a huge breakout of syphilis.

The widespread action is a direct result of a “major male porn star” who could have potentially had unprotected sex with hundreds of women on camera – had the infection but continued to film scenes.

Syphilis is a treatable bacterial infection that can be spread by both bodily fluids and contact with infected skin. It causes skin lesion and rashes. If left untreated, it can permanently alter and damage internal organs and brain function.

At least one porn star has come forward and said she contracted the disease while shooting movies in Budapest, Hungary. “In Budapest, many people got it – me too” said performer Aletta Ocean.

Sex workers are supposed to undergo regular blood tests to ensure they are free of STD’s. However it was reported that one of the labs frequented by porn stars does not test for syphilis. Furthermore, the bacterial infection has a 90-day incubation period – meaning a porn star could be carrying the disease, but it wouldn’t show up on tests.

Naturally, organizations are seizing this opportunity to once again push for mandatory condoms in the porn business. Calling for a government plan to be put in place, a police action to be regulated and dishing out sever penalties to those companies still shooting bareback in California.

Could this be the death nail for bareback sex? Or will Porn just simply move somewhere else? I’ll tell you one thing – they are definitely not helping themselves or their case by continuing to be shut down for outbreaks, putting everyone’s life at risk with such amazingly careless behavior.
