    LOS ANGELES(AP) Adult movie actors said they would keep working in the multibillion-dollar industry despite an HIV scare, as more producers joined a voluntary moratorium that has shut down many sets.

    About a dozen porn production companies halted shooting until at least June 8 after two performers tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS. Hustler Video and VCA Pictures said Friday they were halting work indefinitely.

    "The main concern of both companies right now is for the health and well-being of the talent they work with," VCA publicist Mischa Allen said in a statement. A day earlier, Vivid Entertainment Group, the industry's largest studio, reversed a previous decision to continue shooting.

    The names of about 65 performers who had sex with the two HIV-infected actors or slept with their movie sex partners were posted on industry quarantine sites that prevent them from working for two months until their next HIV tests are completed, said Sharon Mitchell, executive director of the nonprofit Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation.

    Meanwhile, about 80 actors and actresses flocked to the health foundation headquarters Friday to get blood tests, up from 60 on a normal day, Mitchell said.

    A 30-year-old performer who identified himself as Michael came in even though he had not worked with any of the people who potentially were exposed to HIV.

    Like other actors in the porn industry, Michael said he was not overly concerned about contracting sexually transmitted diseases because "everyone's tested, everyone's clean."

    The scare began this week when it was announced that a performer had tested positive for HIV, which he apparently contracted while shooting a film last month in Brazil.

    A 22-year-old Canadian actress he worked with after returning to the United States, also has tested positive for HIV. The woman has worked in the adult film industry for only three months.

    Many of those associated with the adult film industry said unprotected sex is common in shoots despite the HIV scare.

    The last industry HIV scare was in 1999, when a male actor tested positive for the disease. He no longer performs and no other actors were infected.

    Pornography, a $4 billion to $13 billion annual industry based largely in the San Fernando Valley, differs from the heavily regulated sex industry in nearby Nevada, where prostitutes are required to have regular HIV testing.

    The porn industry polices itself, and most major production companies refuse to hire actors unless they can produce a clean blood test taken within the past month.

    What an insensitive thing for me to say, but they deserve it
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    At least you expressed an opinion, which I disagree with. I don't really think people deserve a slow lingering death for being filmed when having sex.

    There was no opinion from the person who started the thread. Why would you want to cut and paste this here, without making comment on it.

    Edit - My apologies, you did post something along with it. I just saw it, my mistake.

    The World would be a fucked up Place without Porn is all I have to say.And I am not just immaturely saying that.These People do a Job and surely do not deserve this.

    I can only hope that not all 65 performers are infected.That would almost Crush an industry like this.

    Not good at all.

    Did you actually pick one of the two available choices?

    adis is a terrible disease to have. nobody should deserve them. Even the most sinister criminals dont deserve death...let alone suffering from all kinds of illnesses and dying from failure of the lungs...

    it&#39;s not right to say they deserved it...

    HIV infection doesn&#39;t have to result in aids... The chance is very big but it doesn&#39;t have to...

    Sorry to hear thesekind of stories but personally i think it&#39;s unbelievable that in this industry there are still doing it without protection I can imagine that with a steady partner you wouldn&#39;t use condoms but if you do it elsewhere without it you must love playing russian roulette. Only difference is that russian roulette is probably safer cause playing that, there&#39;s only a chanceof destroying your own life
