LOS ANGELES, August 23, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A pornographic actress’s HIV diagnosis has brought all production in the Los Angeles pornography industry to a temporary halt and forced industry execs to retrace their steps to figure out who was paid to sleep with whom during the past few months.

Actress Cameron Bay, 28, was diagnosed with HIV this week after a second test confirmed an earlier screening that had come back positive for the disease.

“When I got the call, I was obviously extremely distraught and in disbelief because there's no way that it's possible in my eyes,” the porn star told industry news site AVN after the first test came back positive. “I don't sleep around, I don't do anything crazy, and I keep track of the people that I've worked with.”

But Friday, her worst fears came true as doctors confirmed she had contracted the incurable virus, known as the precursor to AIDS.

“As difficult as this news is for me today, I am hopeful that no other performers have been affected,” Bay said in a statement. “I plan on doing everything possible to assist the medical professionals and my fellow performers. Following that, my long term plan is to take care of myself and my health.”

In the meantime, production has come to a halt, as industry execs must perform a “six degrees of separation”-style analysis of everyone the actress has been intimate with, both on-camera and off—and all of their recent partners, and all of those people’s partners, and so on, until industry executives are reasonably sure they have identified everyone who was exposed.

All will need to be tested and given a clean bill of health before returning to work.

This is the second disease-related porn moratorium in just over a year. Last spring, a syphilis outbreak halted production.

One of those affected by the current AIDS scare is Sydney Leathers, a 22-year-old from Indiana who may have been exposed during her pornographic debut. Leathers – better known as the young woman at the center of the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal – recently starred in a porn film inspired by her lewd interactions with the disgraced ex-Congressman and current New York City mayoral candidate.

Co-star Xander Corvus, who played “Carlos Danger” (Weiner’s alleged nickname for his penis) was the last actor to have sex with Bay, just before the filming of the Weiner movie.

Both actors say they were tested before filming and the results were negative. But according to the Centers for Disease Control, rapid tests for HIV have a high false negative rate and should be repeated after three months to be considered reliable. During those three months, the CDC recommends abstinence or “mutual monogamy” with a trusted partner.

The scandal came down less than a week after a federal judge rejected a lawsuit by the porn industry arguing that an L.A. law requiring actors to wear condoms during sex scenes violates their constitutional rights.

Michael Weinstein, whose AIDS Healthcare Foundation was behind a new voter-passed L.A. ordinance requiring porn actors to use condoms, blamed non-compliance with the law for Bay’s infection and the resulting industry uproar.

“How many adult film performers have to become infected with an array of preventable sexually transmitted diseases — including HIV, which is not curable — before the porn industry actually complies with the law requiring condom use?” Weinstein said in a statement.

The porn industry unsuccessfully fought the law in court, arguing that audiences don’t want their fantasies spoiled by condoms and that forcing actors to wear them violates their constitutional rights. But county officials say they are only aware of one possible violation of the ordinance.

The CDC warns that while condoms reduce the risk of HIV, they cannot prevent infection completely, even with perfect use.

A study by the Guttmacher Institute estimated real-life risk reduction to be as low as 60 percent.
