Porn Star escorts with HIV

33 posts in this topic

I guess this could go down as a public service announcement or major scaremongering - depending on your point of view.

One of the girls confirmed to be infected, Carmella Bing, was on a mailer from Photogirls recently. So, if anyone saw her.... I guess you know the drill.

this made me very sad to hear, my heart goes out to these girls... very sad all round.

it did make me think of something (apologies if inconsiderate):

does the knowledge of a pornstar's illness put you off her now? You would never be likely to meet them, and as porn actresses they are literally sex objects to most people, a masturbatory aid... but nevertheless does it put you off using their images knowing they have HIV?

very scary

in a world so strictly regulated, what of everyday escorts seeing men on a constant basis, like foreign girls who dont get tested?

arghhhhh

"Everyday" escorts use protection and practice safe sex :confused:

and are you trying to say that anyone from outside the UK ("foreign" girls) aren't into getting tested? How presumptuous. Where do you get your statistics from?

God, why are you girls so touchy on here?

There are alot of younger foreign girls who come here for a few months and then go back home - maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think alot of these girls get tested like the girls who live here and are in the profession 'full time'.

Anyway, back to the topic, I know that anything outside of unprotected vaginal/anal sex is very low risk, but stories like this scare me still.

Not touchy at all - but I don't think it's right when you make such statements as fact.

As for all of these porn stars picking up HIV - it's tragic - especially as it's so tightly regulated.

Dr Sharon Mitchell ex pornstar and founder of the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation will no doubt ensure support is offered.

I read about Dr Mitchells life and she truly is a remarkable lady, hooked on Heroin for 16 years and beaten, raped and nearly killed in 1996 by a crazed stalker. She then left the porn industry to get her PHD, setting up her Foundation in 1998 which has helped keep the infection rate down.

I'm not so sure this is true. Could see nothing on avn.com or adultdvdtalk.com.

I hope for the girls' sake that this is just a false rumour.

As others have said I'd doubt the veracity of this report - if you check the dates on the stories they're from June of last year!! I've searched online and can find NO OTHER stories backing this up. The LA Times report gives no names and could be complete bollocks since it's the only real news source that has written about it and I can find no other online reports that give names or even talk about the story apart from ones who "source" their story back to atlnightspots(only one who knows the names) or the LA Times. Given the fact Carmella Bing is quite well known I would have thought there would be something more concrete out there.

OK - done some more digging and if you check Carmella Bing's wiki page there's a photo of her at the 2010 wicked pictures party, which took place at the start of this month (when the adult entertainment expo was on) as far as I can work out. Those that get HIV are pretty much ostracised by the industry; not just from working but from any involvement....guess nobody likes being reminded of the risks etc. so I find it highly unlikely she'd be pictured happy and smiling at a (presumably) invitation only adult industry party 7 months after testing positive. If the IDs are wrong (especially when CB is so well known) then that suggests the whole story should be treated with scepticism.

Every time we have sexual contact with someone, the risk are there all the time, but may be small, but the possibility of infection is always there. As for punting, the risk even higher..

do we stop sexual contact all together, or take calculated risk .. even in safe sex, we always plays the Russian roulette is a small scale....

d.. even in safe sex, we always plays the Russian roulette is a small scale....

I don't agree at all. With Russian roulette, you keep pulling the trigger, you will get the bullet. Practising safe sex does not mean that you're just continually trying to dodge a certain bullet.

I certainly do not feel that I'm living on edge, just waiting for that bullet. :confused:

I have it on very good authority that this story is total nonsense. 1 actress was tested positive last June. Three actors working with her at the time were tested and cleared. To suugest that carmella would be tested positive for a potentially fatal condition and then go on tour is crazy. The story springs from one guys blog, just a dj blogger spouting stuff, isn't backed up by anything at all. Who knows this guys motives but it's a pretty low act.

By way of a sub note ...guys when did you last take a "test"

Not true. The chance is the same (not cumulative) with every shot, which means you can reasonably expect to die after six rounds, but you may never die however long you play. Hence the overt comparison with roulette. ;)

With sexual health there is certainly a threat out there, but you are in considerably greater control of how much of a threat it is.

Well it has been discussed on ADT recently, but the thread was locked and the story certainly appears to be fake:

http://forum.adultdvdtalk.com/forum/topic.dlt/topic_id=145554/forum_id=1/cat_id=1/145554.htm

Just as on ADT, the OP here should have done their research properly before posting unsubstantiated scuttlebutt. ;)
