In 2013 TMZ broke a story that the HIV positive owner of Evil Angel was being sued for failing to disclose that he was HIV positive before he sexual interaction with a girl on the set of an Evil Angel shoot.
The woman behind the lawsuit was Katie Summers — who claimed she was paid to appear in the film back in 2009 … and the role involved sexual interaction with John Stagliano (aka Buttman).
To those of us who have been in the industry for a while, knew that John Stagliano is HIV positive. We’ve all known for years and wrongly just assumed that everyone knew.
But new girls come in the industry every single day, young girls just turning 18 who have no idea who the heck John Stagliano is or that he is HIV positive. Most of the girls were just being born when he was first diagnosed with HIV.
Fast forward five years, and it’s happened again since the Katie Summers ordeal. We now have a new batch of performers and these girls, like those before her, have no idea that the owner of Evil Angel is HIV positive.
All they know is that they go on set to film a scene and they get “molested” by some “old creepy guy,” who they are later told is the owner of the company.
I know it’s a little too late, but I need to be clear here – John Stagliano from Evil Angel is HIV positive, and this has been known since January of 1997. It’s a sad truth that new girls coming into the industry have no way to know that because he damn sure doesn’t disclose it.
Let me repeat, so there is no confusion…
John Stagliano from Evil Angel is HIV positive.
He does not test like the rest of the performers in the adult industry do and is not part of the PASS system. So why then is he on a porn set having sexual contact with a performer?
This Katie Summers ordeal wasn’t the only time John Stagliano would have sexual relations with an active performer without protection, risking tainting the entire talent pool. In August of 2013, Sheena Shaw revealed she had been having UNPROTECTED sexual relations with the HIV positive John Stagliano and he had even gotten her pregnant.
But that’s not the only time. In fact, here is some actual proof …
John Stagliano owner of Evil Angel, his wife and now AVN has claimed that during the production of his Stretch Class series he did not have sexual contact with the female performers so there was no need to reveal his HIV positive status.
Here is photographic proof, with his dick in hand, here he appears to be having unprotected sexual contact with a female performer.
Remember this is something John Stagliano and his wife denied. Can anyone say oops, busted?
And this isn’t the only time he’s had sexual contact with a performer while on an Evil Angel set. See here also from 2013.
So now let’s talk about today’s case. It’s between Jenny Blighe and Ginger Banks, neither of which seem to have an agent. That in itself is an issue. If they had an agent I would have hoped their agent would have warned them.
But these girls apparently booked this scene on their own and being new to the industry, they didn’t know of his history or medical condition and apparently, he didn’t bother telling them either.
So now you have two girls on set making what they thought was a normal movie. Then the owner of Evil Angel comes out and according to Jenny Blighe and Ginger Banks, John Stagliano molested both of them.
Jenny Blighe and Ginger Banks were on the set of an Evil Angel movie where they say John Stagliano “molested” them. To make matters worse, they only recently found out he was HIV positive.
Jenny Blighe still wants to come forward and fight it while Ginger Banks as the newly announced head of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (The APAC is the performer branch of the FSC (Free Speech Coalition), decided it was in her best interest not to speak out until she was more famous.
Yep, she actually said that.
John Stagliano knows that he can afford lawyers to quiet any female performer who comes forward to complain.
So I can see why many girls don’t.
The movie in question was Cam Girls The Movie, what is being advertised as Ginger Banks and Jenny Blighe’s first pro-hardcore scene.
They are contractually obligating to promote it on twitter. That has to be awkward.
