The Free Speech Coalition, a pornography trade group, called for halting on production of the multi-billion dollar industry. The reason for the stoppage call was due to a porn actor’s positive syphilis test. The one performers positive test, and the performer’s sexual partners are being notified, according to Joanne Cachapero, a spokeswoman for TFSC. The moratorium is voluntary, (with more than a 1,000, to be tested) and is expected to shut down the entire industry “until the risk to performers in the industry has been properly assessed and all performers have been tested,” the trade association said in a statement. Last Friday, the Los Angeles County Public Health Department began investigation into at least five possible cases of syphilis that were reported last week. A single shot of penicillin can cure a person who has had syphilis for less than a year, but additional doses are required for people who have had the STD for a longer period of time.
