LOS ANGELES — Advocates for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation on Monday night will protest in front of the Hustler Hollywood store in West Hollywood, Calif., in an attempt to call for condoms-only regulation for the adult industry.

Michael Weinstein told XBIZ that his organization has “no problems” taking on common practices of the adult industry with his group’s crusade.

Weinstein said that “since Larry Flynt is an influential leader in this business, and because of his previous outspoken opposition to requiring the use of condoms by adult entertainment actors, AHF has chosen to renew its call for legislation requiring the use of condoms in porn in front of Flynt's Hustler Hollywood store."

AIDS Healthcare's newest initiative gained momentum after XBIZ reported that an adult performer tested positive for HIV and four others were quarantined. The infection was confirmed by the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation, or AIM.

A timeline indicates the unnamed actress tested negative on April 29 but that a positive test result was confirmed on June 4.

She performed on June 5 for reasons that the clinic told the newspaper were still under investigation. A second test came back positive on June 6.

The actor who performed with the infected woman on June 5 has so far tested negative for the virus, although HIV infections can be undetectable for a week or more. A second male partner also tested negative.

With the protest, AIDS Healthcare supporters will carry three-foot-wide colorful condoms, Weinstein said.

The group used the same giant condoms in front of Flynt's Beverly Hills, Calif., headquarters during a protest in 2004, when the porn biz was amidst a 60-day industry moratorium, which later was cut in half.
