CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition, in response to statements made at a press conference held by AIDS Healthcare Foundation this morning, issued this statement today:

FSC and its program Performer Availability Screening Services (PASS) would like to respond to some misinformation conveyed in AHF’s earlier press conference.

All performers that worked with Cameron Bay tested negative for HIV. She did not contract HIV on-set, nor did she expose any partners. The doctor working with Ms. Bay contacted her as soon as her results were in and she was sent all of her tests results, including the viral load.

Rod Daily had tested negative in July and worked on all-condoms sets during the time in question.

We have been given no real information of a fourth performer. If there is real evidence of a fourth performer, then the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) should have contacted the adult industry for assistance in generational identification. It is unconscionable and irresponsible for AHF to use any individual as a political pawn in a press conference, rather than work through the necessary protocols to make sure that any partners are identified and tested for the safety of all concerned.

“We in the FSC and the adult film community work with a dedicated group of physicians on an ongoing basis to review and improve our testing protocols,” said Diane Duke, FSC CEO. “While producers and directors can control the film set environment, we can’t control what performers do in private. We need to do more to help performers understand how to protect themselves in their private lives. Therefore, PASS plans to support STI prevention education in order to provide performers the information and resources that will protect them when they are off set as well.”
