A few months ago the industry pretty much flat out ignored the fact that a person known to be HIV+ was having sexual relations with talent on the set of his movies. Everyone was like ‘eh whatever. One girl sued the guy over it and people were even kinda shitty to her about it. At that point I couldn’t help but wonder if maybe people didn’t think HIV was that big of a deal, like they did years ago.
I just couldn’t understand how a man that people knew for a fact was HIV positive could take ram his fingers up a girls pussy or ass hole and sometimes even take his dick out of his pants on set and rub it against a girls pussy or ass and nobody give two shits about it and the one girl who did speak up about it, was treated like she was the bad guy.
Was it possible that performers just didn’t care if they put themselves at risk for catching HIV anymore? Were we living in the twilight zone?
Then the worst imaginable thing happened, two performers tested positive for HIV, a male and one female. Then all of the sudden people started freaking out. Wait .. what? Why do you care about it now? Why didn’t you care about it a month ago?
Someone said, well performers just don’t fully understand the risks. HUH? How is it possible?
So I decided to share a story with you about car wrecks. Chances are the average person will never be in a car accident. The odds are very slim. But the more times you are in a car, the increase those odds just slightly, but the more you start doing things like speeding, or running stop signs, you know the riskier driving stuff, the likely hood of you getting in an accident increases dramatically.
The very same concept applies to HIV. Chances are the average person isn’t going to catch HIV but the more they exchange bodily fluid, they increase those odds. And the more riskier behavior they take part in, the more those odds increase.
And just in case there is any confusion, having any sort of sexual relations with a man who you know for a fact is HIV positive is extremely risky behavior, increasing your odds of catching HIV yourself astronomically.
“It won’t happen to me” syndrome is common with performers. But you know what? It can happen to you. Just ask the chick who tested positive on Tuesday for HIV. It can happen to you. Even if you don’t go out there and let John Stagliano from Evil Angel rub his cock against your pussy, what if the girl you are doing a threeway with today, did? Her risky behavior is now your problem because you two are about to exchange a whole hell of a lot of body fluids.
STOP TURNING A BLIND EYE TO THIS EXTREMELY RISKY BEHAVIOR.
Take a stand and say, you know what … I won’t book scenes with Evil Angel under any circumstances because I don’t think it’s okay what he is doing.
Take a stand and say, you know what … I want to use a condom when I am on set. I know some companies claim that it will hurt sales, but Wicked Pictures uses condoms and they don’t seem to have a problem selling their movies. Gay porn uses condoms and you know what? Gay porn has no problem selling either. And these companies claiming that bullshit about how condom porn won’t sell knows for a fact that there are clear condoms, that if done right won’t show up on film.
Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not for ANY form of government intervention. The more the government stays the fuck out of our business, the better for the rest of us. But what I am for is your safety and your well being. So we need to be the ones who say, I want to use condoms when I fuck this guy today.
We need to say … I don’t want to book any scenes with anyone who has recently worked on any Evil Angel movie. Their risky behavior just isn’t worth it for me.
We don’t need the government to come in and tell us what to do. But we do need you to stand up for yourself, your body and your own well being and say enough is enough!
