Ex-porn actress alleges Anthony Weiner told her to cover up online activities

An adult film performer has tested HIV-positive, prompting a temporary shutdown of productions across the Los Angeles area until further testing is completed.

"Until we know for sure, we've asked the industry to have a moratorium on production," said Diane Duke, executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, a Canoga Park-based porn industry trade group.

Duke's group became aware of the possible HIV case Saturday. Duke would not say how her group learned about the case and did not release the name, age or gender of the performer, citing medical privacy laws.

She said she notified adult film production companies Monday morning that a performer had tested positive and urged them to temporarily halt productions until further tests were completed.

All the company officials she spoke with, including those at well-known studios such as Hustler Video and Evil Angel, agreed to the temporary shutdown, she said.

Production companies referred questions about the moratorium to Duke.

Duke's group was notifying actors known to have performed with the potentially infected person so they could get tested, she said.


Rest at,
