CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

A Male Performer Has Tested Positive For HIV

In the past the stories have gotten out mostly when people who had been exposed started talking about it.  This time The FSC has apparently gotten in front of it before the people who were exposed have been notified.

I have confirmed that it is a guy and he is from the straight side of the biz, he is not a high level performer.

I am hearing that he tested positive in the last few days but it is not clear if this was his first or second positive test.  Because the FSC has called for a moratorium I would be inclined to go with the idea that this is at least his second positive test and is unlikely to be a false positive.

This comes at a bad time for the industry this is the 4th self imposed moratorium in 15 months.

It also comes at a bad time for performers, what with the holidays coming up and all.  In the past people have defied the moratorium and they almost certainly will this time as well.  If you feel that you must defy the moratorium USE CONDOMS.  truth is you should be using them anyway, with the possibility of antibiotic resistant Gonorrhea and now HIV in the talent pool it only makes sense to use condoms. Specially now.
