Public health officials in Los Angeles have said that actors in the pornographic film industry put themselves at higher risk of sexually-transmitted diseases by not using appropriate contraception.
I have a feeling that this isn\’t true.
Yes, of course, having unprotected sex with large numbers of people is risky behaviour: but the proof is in the pudding. What is the HIV rate among \”adult\” actors and the general population?
It\’s certainly far lower than it is among some sub-sectors of it (one appalling report from a few days ago of what was it? 30% of black gays in DC being HIV positive?) and I\’d be very surprised if it was as high among those actors as it is among similarly sexually libertine heterosexuals outside the industry.
This is where we might hope that Ms. Pisani composes a post.
