FSC Statement on Possible Syphilis Case

Diane Duke

In response to media reports of a possible incidence of a positive syphilis test being returned for an adult performer, FSC (which operates APHSS.org) has released the following statement:

“FSC wishes to address rumors of a syphilis ‘outbreak’ in the adult industry. A performer tested positive for syphilis on one type of test and negative on another, and we are awaiting the results of definitive confirmatory tests.

“FSC’s Adult Performer Health and Safety Services (APHSS.org) will follow sound medical practices for either positive or negative test results as directed by the doctors associated with the program. Only if and when a positive confirmation is received, FSC will follow the notification protocols already in place.

“Patient privacy and respect are of utmost importance to us and we encourage responsible reporting rather than the spread of misinformation by rumor mill opportunists who may take this situation as prospect for media attention.”
