Adult Industry Testing Protocol Followed with One-Week Layoff Before Re-Tests Implemented on Advice of LATATA.

STUDIO CITY, CA – Exactly one week ago, the Licensed Adult Talent Agency Trade Association (LATATA) released a statement concerning reports of a potential syphilis outbreak in the adult entertainment industry.

Contrary to a report that emerged in the adult press last week announcing the male performer Clover to be cleared for work, Clover did in fact follow the advice provided by doctors at Talent Testing Service to wait one week between his first set of tests there on Monday, August 5th and then performing a second series of tests on Monday, August 12th.

On August 6, 2013, Clover notified his agent and LATATA of the inconclusive results he received from Talent Testing Services (TTS) from a series of three (3) tests that mirrored the results of a test taken at Cutting Edge Testing (CET) testing facility a few days previously. In accordance with the recommendation of a TTS doctor, LATATA advised Clover to abstain from performing for the additional week and then retest using a full series of Syphilis tests.

LATATA similarly advised all performers with first generational contact to Clover to abstain from work during this period.

Following the counsel, Clover retested on Monday, August 12. The results from these tests returned today and show Clover is cleared for work again.

Performers that worked with Clover in the period prior to such tests may be assured they have not been exposed to the risk of contracting Syphilis as a result of such work.

Clover’s agent Kevin O’Neil – LATATA member and Type 9 Models owner – states, “At the first sign of a discrepancy in his test results, Clover phoned me, and we were able to advise him to refrain from performing and retest in one week. I believe this is the perfect example of how the adult industry’s testing protocols work in the best interest of performers when adhered to properly.”

Thank you to LATATA for the support and guidance,” states Clover. “I’m relieved to put all of this to rest and get back to work.”

OK…I’m confused here. FSC and APHSS had already announced last Thursday that the confirmary tests had come out negative and Clover was free and clear….yet according to this new press release by LATATA, the all-clear was delayed until the test given yesterday and announced today. Why does this sound like LATATA covering their asses and attempting to take credit away from APHSS?? Are they attempting to suck up to Mike South? Or, is this a blowback for the Hepatitis incident where Lisa Ann blew their cover on the performer who was tested outside the system but almost cleared to perform… Read more »
