As you may know, this "patient zeta" thing is still causing some major waves in the porno industry. Cameron Reid made some unfriendly comments about the AIM Heathcare, about the nature of the porn industry in general, and about the agencies that represent porn performers. In his comments, Mr. Reid stated very strongly that he absolutely, definitely, without a doubt contracted the HIV virus while working on an adult picture. I believe he specifically stated that some semen leaked into his anus after a guy climaxed on his back during a scene. He’s stated that this is most certainly the case, it's irrefutable, and that the only time he’s had sex in his personal life was with his girlfriend. And that he most certainly has never been employed as an escort.
And if it’s true, this should mean nothing at all.
Did you know that a male infected with HIV is 8 times as likely to spread the disease to a female partner than vice versa? When you consider that "Patient Zero" in the current HIV scare hitting porn valley right now is rumored to be a male performer it only makes sense that the industry has pretty much shut down until the scope of possible infection has been determined. Sure, the industry has shut down before when these sorts of scares have popped up and the initial "Patient Zero" was a female, but when you consider the increased chance of infection from male to female and the fact that compared to the hundreds of female performers working in the adult business today versus the handful of male performers working...well, you can quickly see how this could be a cause for alarm.
