LOS ANGELES — Another adult entertainment film star has revealed he has tested positive for HIV, XBIZ has confirmed.

It is the fourth such case reported in less than three weeks.

The male actor confirmed his diagnosis to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which for years has fought for a condom regulations in California.

“I can confirm,” the organization’s president Michael Weinstein told RadarOnline, which first reported the story. “However, he has asked that all other information be kept strictly confidential at this time. I have nothing else to say about the performer.”

The AHF, which later disclosed to XBIZ the news, would not release details on the porn performer, including any adult film company that employed him.

On Aug. 22, porn actress Cameron Bay announced via the FSC that she had been infected with HIV. After Bay tested positive, production was shut down for about a week through a FSC moratorium.

Later, Rod Daily announced via social media that he has contracted HIV, making him the second adult film actor to announce a diagnosis with the disease in recent weeks.

And on Friday, another actor — the third in two weeks — tested positive, according to AHF/PASS, which immediately imposed a voluntary moratorium for adult film shoots.

Today's revelation makes it the fourth such case in three weeks.
