CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition today said that claims by an adult industry blogger of an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea circulating among the performer community is untrue.

The adult entertainment trade group made the statement in reaction to a story posted on MikeSouth.com that claimed there are two cases of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea in the industry.

"Rumors of an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea in the adult performer population are untrue and unfounded," FSC CEO Diane Duke said. "No such cases exist in the active tested performer population, according to doctors at each of the testing facilities.

"That said, as always, we encourage people to vigilant in their personal lives, and to report any concerns to Free Speech Coalition or an affiliated testing facility."

The antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea, a diarrhea-causing "superbug," was classified this month as an urgent public-health threats by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

If left untreated, gonorrhea can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirths, severe eye infections in babies and infertility in men and women.

According to a new report by CDC, at least 2 million people in the U.S. develop serious bacterial infections that are resistant to one or more types of antibiotics each year.

Last year, the World Health Organization found a "superbug" strain of gonorrhea had spread to several European countries.
