More Cases of Syphilis in Porn Found By LA Inquiry

In a follow up to our previous post we’ve discovered that four more cases of syphilis have been found in the LA porn circuit bringing the total to nine. It will be interesting to see how this effects the industry and how committed the producers and directors etc. are to the health and safety of the actors.

The current number of syphilis cases in the most recent outbreak “will grow,” said Fielding, adding that an ongoing investigation is expected to uncover more cases. The latest discoveries were made through testing of the sexual partners of the earlier cases found, he said.

All those infected are also in the industry, but it remains unclear whether they contracted the illness on- or off-set, he said.

Stay tuned.
