A 3 day moratorium on adult production was called Wednesday by Free Speech Coalition (FSC) and the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC).
The production hold was called after FSC’s Performer Availability Screening Services (PASS) program received notification from a public health department official of a possible HIV exposure on an out-of-state (non-California) set.
According to FSC, “In an abundance of caution, we are calling for a three-day hold on production while we evaluate any risk to the performer pool, and determine if a full moratorium is warranted. As with past production holds, we ask that people refrain from speculation until more news is forthcoming, and respect performer privacy. We are currently working with the public health department, the production company, and the performer, and will alert as more information is available.”
Reliable sources inform TRPWL the alleged exposure did not occur in Florida.
Free Speech Coalition Statement:
The Free Speech Coalition has called for a three-day hold of production while it investigates a possible positive HIV exposure on an adult set. Diane Duke, head of the Free Speech Coalition released this statement to the press:
“As with past production holds, we ask that people refrain from speculation until more news is forthcoming, and respect performer privacy. We are currently working with the public health department, the production company, and the performer, and will alert as more information is available.”
The Free Speech Coalition periodically calls production holds and moratorium if there is a possible risk of HIV within the adult film community. Moratoriums are an important part of the safety protocols in adult film, but does not signal an actual on-set transmission. The adult film industry has not seen an on-set transmission of HIV in over ten years.
As of this notice, FSC calls for all production to halt immediately, until further notice.
For more information on the moratorium, updates will be posted to the FSC-PASS website and the FSC blog.
To prevent irresponsible gossip mongers and others from invading performer privacy, FSC is temporarily withholding access to the PASS test verification system.
Information on the protocols for, and the ethical handling of, production moratoria may be found here.
