A Test Here, a Test There

With news dominating industry headlines that a performer may have contracted HIV and passed it on to others, the adult industry is once again under fire for its most basic premise; the right of performers to exercise their own free will in deciding what they are willing to do at what price. Any attempt to portray as one of a flawed testing system, is outright discrimination from those who want to find any way to regulate the industry.

As in life, the adult industry has a price tag. Performer X agrees to perform sex act Y for the price of Z. Like a menu at an all night Dennyís, directors and producers assemble their all-star class for every genre based on who will do what. Actors and actresses know the risks when they sign on into the industry and AIM does the best they can, dealing with the circumstances they have.

AIM is not a silver bullet to stop the transmission of Aids, STDís, or blood borne diseases. It never will be. Unless every actor and actress involved in the adult entertainment industry takes an oath to only have sex on camera with other tested individuals, then the whole idea of being tested will never work. Furthermore, an oath probably wonít help either. The only sure fire way to ensure total testing accuracy and clean performers are to lock them all away on an isolated island where they could only have sex with other tested individuals. This reality is ok though, because due to the fact performers have to be tested every thirty days means the adult industry is probably cleaner (health wise) than many other industries.

Government regulatory agencies want to make an issue of this, claiming AIM and the current set-up doesnít work. They scream their concerned mandate that all performers wear condoms for the good of other performers, which lacks in sincerity and is just another way they are trying to discriminate towards the adult industry, when other industries beg for similar regulation.

Anyone watching the NBA Finals knows Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant isnít afraid to throw an elbow to get a rebound or to get loose on a fast break. All it takes is one elbow to a bust open mouth or split a lip, and the three principals of HIV (or blood borne disease) transmission are present; blood, open skin, and contact. NBA players, as most celebrities, are anything but home makers after games. Turn to TMZ.com and you are likely to see any bevy of NBA stars partying all night with starlets and debutantes. Last week a video clip of shirtless New York Yankees Outfielder Melky Cabrera hanging out with adult star Mary Carey in what seemed to be a no-tell motel made the rounds on the internet.

Sex is exchanged by professional athletes and willing groupies and co-eds all the time. While the news media jumps over sensationalized stories that the ''dirty'' porn industry promotes STD and HIV transmissions, they miss the real story. Anyone watching JM Productions American Bukkake may think the starlets ingest a lot of cum it is nothing close to the amounts of blood, sweat, and bodily fluids that professional athletes exchange. Sit in the front row at a NHL game. Hockey players beat each other with fists and exchange blood nightly. At the end of the night their jerseys are so covered with blood that they look like used scrubs from a hospital. Yet no governmental group calls for their testing. A medical study published in 2007 found that college football games were a prime transmission point for infectious diseases spread by body contact on the field.

Yet the government and regulatory agencies wonít pick on or call for stringent HIV and STD testing in professional or major sports. Why? Because their too popular with the general public and the government views professional athletes as ''knowing the risks they take'' when they come to work. However, it treats that industry as a grown-up who knows and takes responsibility for its actions, yet wants to treat the adult industry as a child who knows nothing.
