CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Adult industry trade group Free Speech Coalition has come out against possible government regulation of the adult industry after a performer tested positive for HIV.

"The circumstances are tragic and, of course, there is cause for grave concern anytime anyone is diagnosed with HIV," FSC Executive Director Diane Duke said. "That is why the Free Speech Coalition has, and continues to, work with our members and the industry to develop standards and best practices to protect industry performers.

"What we know is that government imposed regulation does not work and self-regulation of our industry does," Duke said. "That is why our industry has been so successful in preventing HIV transmissions within the adult entertainment community."

A female performer and her scene partners were quarantined after the female performer returned an HIV positive test last week.

FSC proposed its Code of Ethics for Adult Businesses on its website in December. The Code of Ethics, developed by the FSC in collaboration with adult industry members, suggests fundamental practices that the Coalition encourages industry professionals and businesses to practice.
