U.K. Adult Industry Can Recommence Shooting, AITA Says

LONDON — The Adult Industry Trade Association (AITA) said Thursday that the U.K. performer who received an initial positive test result for HIV has been cleared in a follow-up test.

The U.K. trade group said a second test had negative HIV results and that the "performer is therefore confirmed clear of HIV and other sexual diseases."

AITA, which on Wednesday called for the immediate suspension of all production in the region, issued a green light today for scheduled production to resume.

"We would like to thank the U.K. adult industry for such a rapid response following AITA’s request for all U.K. production work to be suspended until the results for the second test were received," the group said. "AITA have now set up a sexual health sub-committee in order to examine whether industry testing and sexual health procedures are adequate to deal with future, genuine HIV outbreaks.

"We urge all industry members who are not already AITA members to join and help make the association a stronger, better-funded body that can best represent the needs of the industry."
