“I didn’t want to see a whole army of people sitting at this table,” said James, who now works for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “This industry has failed and continues to fail. We all need to wake up.”

When Bay found out she had HIV on Aug. 21, the Free Speech Coalition, which oversees a database of all adult fílm performers’ STD tests, placed a moratorium on pórn shooting. Six days later, the organization lifted the moratorium.

A week after pórn shooting had resumed, Bay’s boyfriend, Daily, announced that he had tested positive for HIV. Two days after Daily said he was HIV-positive, another performer, who wasn’t identified, tested positive. That prompted the Free Speech Coalition to impose a second moratorium.

The Free Speech Coalition announced this week that it would lift the second moratorium on Friday. It also said it will begin requiring STD testing of performers every 14 days, twice as often as before.

The Free Speech Coalition maintains that the three performers who recently tested HIV-positive — Bay, Daily and the anonymous man — did not contract HIV on a fílm set.
