Isn’t Cancer as Bad as HIV?

I am curious about something … why don’t we test for HPV?  We test for HIV.   Isn’t cancer just as bad as HIV?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 50 percent of sexually active men and women will have a genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. HPV, or human papillomavirus, comes in both low- and high-risk forms; low-risk HPV can cause genital warts, and high-risk can cause cervical and other cancers.

So since HPV can cause cancer, wouldn’t we want to let the girls know that they have it?  Cancer is a big deal, no?

These companies like AIM and the FSC claim to care about the health and well being of the performers so why then aren’t they acting like it?

Now is time to set a new industry standard!!  When a new testing center is established, let’s also start testing for HPV and Herpes.  Let’s actually show the girls we care about their health and well being, not just talk out our ass about it.

  1. LOL…have you seen the statistics on herpes in the porn industry? It’d be easier to count those who don’t have it than those who do [read: everybody]. Think about how long ago Belladonna announced she had herpes. Then take into consideration how long she knew before she told everyone. Finally, consider how long and how many people she worked with after she announced she was infected.

    The only disease the industry “cares” about is HIV and only because there is no cure and it’s eventually fatal. Why didn’t you mention gono, syphilis, chlamydia, etc.? Is it OK to contract a STD as long as there is a cure for it? Performers are told before they even start that there’s a very good change of infection. You play with fire you’re going to get burned. It’s just a bigger fire in the porn world because of the frequency, multiple partners, and lack of any protection. You don’t want a STD? Don’t have sex…or, more realistically, take measures to lower your risk.

    People always believe that it won’t happen to them, or if it does, it’ll be something that isn’t HIV and curable or treatable (cancers are treatable with chemo, etc. much more so than the drugs for HIV/AIDS). There’s part of the problem right there. As long as there’s that safety net of curable/treatable, nobody is really going to care about anything other than HIV. And people will stop caring about that if/when a cure is developed.
