CANOGA PARK, Calif. — A performer who tested positive for syphilis has been in touch with the Free Speech Coalition and is meeting with FSC’s medical professionals to begin partner identification, evaluation and treatment, the organization announced Saturday.

In light of that, FSC has called for a temporary moratorium on productions nationwide until the risk to performers in the industry has been properly assessed and all performers have been tested.

Doctors affliliated with Adult Production Health and Safety Services (APHSS) have met and discussed the best avenue to protect the performers and have determined that testing the entire population is the most prudent strategy, the FSC said. A determination will be made by the doctors on the appropriate time to lift the moratorium as more information is revealed.

FSC encourages any performer who may have tested positive for syphilis to contact FSC Executive Director Diane Duke at diane@freespeechcoalition.com or 818.348.9373 and FSC will make sure the performer receives immediate medical support including confidential partner identification and treatment.

FSC will provide daily updates on the situation to the industry through press releases and the APHSS blog http://blog.aphss.org/.
