Several Porn Companies Halt Production Due To AIDS Scare

Since news broke Tuesday that a prolific porn actor had tested positive for HIV, several adult entertainment companies have halted production — and several more haven’t. Porn is a multi-million dollar business, and concern for the well being of the performers has always been low. Despite a strong push by health advocates for condom use, few porn shoots actually bother with condoms, the government refuses to mandate such changes, and consumers don’t seem to care. Many porn companies in town continue keep shooting, despite not knowing all the facts surrounding the infection, including who might have been exposed.

The companies that have halted porn production are Vivid Entertainment, Wicked Pictures (which has a policy of mandatory condom use), Hustler Video, Digital Playground, Jennaration X Studios, Girlfriends Films and Kick Ass Pictures. Remember those names next time you’re shopping for porn, and buy from a company that made the expensive but responsible choice to put their performer’s health first.

Kim Kardashian’s Sex Tape — No Shower Scene

Kim Kardashian’s sex tape sold for a million bucks to VIVID. There’s a semi-literate press release:

She’s the Daughter of O.J. Simpson’s Lawyer Robert Kardashian, the Stepdaughter of Olympic Gold Medallist Bruce Jenner and the Best Friend of Paris Hilton; He’s a Best-Selling Indie Hip Hop Recording Artist Who Has Been Linked with Lil’Kim and Most Recently Whitney Houston.

FBLA asked our main source of information about sex, Kevin Blatt, about the tape.(Would you rather that we learn about it in the street?)

I was shopped the KK video a month and a half ago when the video still contained what was described to me as Kim “singing in the rain” or involved with a “golden shower.” That scene from what I understand has since been edited out. However, my phone is still being “flooded” about this.

FBLA is relieved to learn this.

It is going to be a HUGE tape for VIVID video- and I wish them all of the best they are a fantastic company not too mention they made Pamela Anderson their biggest pornstar of all time. Believe me when I say that IMHO Vivid has sold more tapes than Jenna Jameson.

Amateur content is the wave of the future.
