His girlfriend Cameron Bay’s recent seroconversion temporarily shut down the straight porn industry and made national news. Now, gay porn star Rod Daily has come forward with his HIV test results.
Unlike Bay’s results, which were somehow leaked by a third party, Rod Daily just posted his own HIV test results on Twitter.
Not surprised...and the sad thing is, he likely infected his girlfriend (he escorts yet does condom-only porn).
He was a very versatile performer. I hope he's used his porn career to accrue a nest egg big enough to deal with a lifetime of AIDS cocktails. I admire his optimistic outlook.
Was never really a fan but still very sorry to hear this. I wish him well.
I had no idea he was gay-for-pay.
Does anyone else here frequent Porn Wikipedia? It's pretty hard to take, the guy is a certifiable homophobe, but he does get scoops.
Not familiar with this guy (more of an amateur porn enthusiast), but the nonchalant tone of those tweets is just amazing to me. I guess many of them really are resigned to the probability that they'll contract it.
So... I gues he's coming out as a bottom, too.
Is Cody Cummings okay?
[quote] He's long been one of my fantasies and I couldn't pass the opportunity up. In person, looks just like his pics, on his own website and his videos -- very hot. Pleasant guy but not interactive. Doesn't kiss. Didn't get at all hard. Gives oral only after a condom went on. Gives good head otherwise and was a willing bottom. Wouldn't be worth a second go round. We finished a while before an hour was up, and I thought we were having a nice chat, but I no sooner had my clothes on and he was shaking my hand and almost pushing me out the door.
[quote]Is Cody Cummings okay?
He has a retard neck tattoo. What do you think?
I can hardly believe he's gay for pay.
But I don't want to know the price I'm going to pay for dreaming now that her dream has come true.
R2...LOL!! Funniest parody post ever!
R7, of course they are. C'mon. The only thing more dysfunctional than the performers in these films are the creeps who support the bareback vid industry with their dollar.
Who the hell pays for porn? I'm downloading bootlegs as I type.
Pity about the whore.
I don't like Rod Daily vids because they're unsettling. He's obviously straight, and watching him getting fucked is just strange.
You sound really charming, R14.
I hope now that he is poz and has nothing to lose he goes to Machofucker and lets Igor tear him apart.
Thanks, Sarcasm 101 neophyte!
R17 has serious mental problems.
So did he get it from her, or give it to her? (don't feel like reading the article)
I thought he had a daughter, and was also Parker London's friend?
I don't know who this person is. What sites does he appear on?
Next Door World, r21
If that review of his escorting is accurate, he's unlikely to have got it from escorting.
It is possible for a receptive partner (i.e. his girlfriend) to pass it on.
Not everyone who uses an escort reviews.
He took it up the ass raw at a party for 'entertainment'. I was there. I saw it.
Doubt he is gay for pay, gay in denial maybe.
Exactly, one review means nothing. All escorts will bareback for the right price and the client looks reasonably healthy.
[quote] He took it up the ass raw at a party for 'entertainment'. I was there. I saw it.
And yet he'd use a condom with a client for oral?
I suppose drug use would explain the discrepancy.
Was it a private party or in a club? Was the top another porn actor?
Private party and no it was not a porn actor, it was a guest who was an exhibitionist.
Condom for oral may have been because the guy was old or creepy and he wanted no contact. Or maybe like many reviews it was written by either he or a friend.
Did you know the exhibitionist's status?
He had biohazard tats. But I guess some people just get them for the design.
Our Fuckin' Hot Boots contest on Saturday had several guys from across the country competing. Some great boots too. The winner had a pair that came all the way up to his crotch. Lots of leathermen, great boots and we raised a ton of money for Chicago House's AIDS Walk Team. A damn good party!
Sunday was our second big fetish party with lots of guys strutting their stuff in jockstraps or underwear. A couple of guys in jocks were shooting pool with a unique rule. Seems when one made a made a shot and sunk a ball, he got a quick rim job.
Did you mean to post on your blog?
Rod Daily for Andrew Christian underwear
see link below
The woman he gave HIV to had sex with Xander Corvus, the straight male porn star. He in turn played "Anthony Weiner" and had sex with that recipient of Anthony Weiner's porn texts.
[quote]gay in denial maybe.
I think maybe this would make up a large portion of the HIV/AIDS cases: gay men who hate themselves and sleep around because of it. I love the fact I'm gay and I love gay people and I never sleep around.
All he has to do is change his name to Rod Deadly and he's good to go.
[quote]I had no idea he was gay-for-pay.
he states in an interview that he prefers women but loves butt play of any type
The fact that anyone is shocked, or even finds it newsworthy, that people in the sex industry might well be hiv positive is ludicrous.
Which is not to say, of course, that it isn't possible to be in the sex industry and be negative. Of course it is. But when someone fucks for a living, one obviously has a very good change of having hiv.
Rod Daily is a clever porn name
Meh. One of the hazards of the biz.
One down, another will fill his place...
Sad. Gay porn turns more and more to bb and if I'm correct, RD didn't film bb, so I wonder how bb porn actors are doing. These actors should demand more protection and people who buy these bb films, should stop buying them, only way to stop the studios making them.
Thankfully some studios do testing and quarantining before filming a scene.
He is bisexual. Some of you seem to be unaware of the concept.
Bisexual males never end up well.
[quote]He took it up the ass raw at a party for 'entertainment'. I was there. I saw it.
OMG! I shouldn't be surprised, but I am.
I just found this, looks like Rod liked piss too. I'm thinking he was quite the whore off camera if he was doing this on camera.
Scroll half way down to see. Movie is called piss pig by Lucas.
He's str8. Gay4pay. Quit being so jealous of str8 guys. Gay guys really do hate being gay.
What are the chances Xander Corvus and Sydney Leathers will seroconvert? Both have said they are negative but not enough time has passed to accurately determine that.
Very brave of him to admit this publicly. I wonder how many porn stars are HIV+ and never disclose it
Very hard for a woman to pass HIV to a man via vaginal sex.
Rod probably picked it up from one of his escorting clients and passed it on to his girlfriend.
It's also a myth that HIV has this very long incubation period. Vast majority of people who seroconvert do so within a week, and it's a very uncomfortable, obvious illness.
[quote] it's a very uncomfortable, obvious illness.
Are you talking about the initial infection period?
I hope Xander does get HIV.
Seroconversion is pretty impossible to miss and typically happens within a week of exposure. For public health reasons, the incubation period is played as possibly being much longer, and seroconversion itself is played as something you might miss or mistake, but both are rarely, rarely the case. "Better safe than sorry," that sort of thing.
I've no problem with bisexuality, but this guy wasn't bisexual. He was a closeted gay man who believed that believing he was not gay in his "real life" would exempt him from having to play by the rules of the real "real life". Gay porn is full of men who buy the gay-for-pay scheme as much as the consumers do, and unfortunately people die for that. It's a vicarious way for them to be gay without actually having to be gay. The porn industry is full of mental illness, personal crisis, and internal identity problems. Anyone who believes otherwise is simply wrong. The only people in the porn biz who get off scott free are the scumbags who exploit those who are desperate enough to be exploited. No one cared for Rod Daily. Anyone who should have is already on to the next "straight" guy who's willing to spread his ass for the world while his "girlfriend" is waiting home. Pathetic.
so much compassion here
Being gay is shameful for many gay men
[quote]I just found this, looks like Rod liked piss too. I'm thinking he was quite the whore off camera if he was doing this on camera.
Oh my GAWD.
piss is sterile.
But as shameful as getting DP'ed on a world stage, or having cum shot all over your face as tne scene fades to black?
stealing millions from share-holders is more shameful, sorry cunts.
Porndom is in shutdown for the second time in three weeks. Another actress has tested HIV+.
So Rod Daily is HIV+. Are other HIV+ people only poz every other day?
How do we know it is a woman, R65?
I watched the Porn Awards on Showtime recently, and I have never seen so many drugged-out and damaged people in my life. Skanks were masturbating in the audience and grabbing each other's private parts on the red carpet. And talk about dumb.
There seems to be come confusion about whether the second porn actor is Rod or a new infection.
[quote]Another actress has tested HIV+.
It's another male actor.
Count is now 2 men, and 1 girlfriend/actress.
All actresses that had contract with the new poz guy are being tested.
Prediction: Gay porn actors = BANNED from any straight porn.
R68. Porn doesn't attract class or the cream of the crop. For the most part, if they enter porn a bit naïve, they end up broken, damaged, drugged out or lost knowing they've made an enormous mistake with their lives.
Perhaps this wasn't always the case when the Internet wasn't so pervasive. But now porn actors can't escape from it. Their images are everywhere. We're drawn to it because we all watch porn. However, we don't want to hire them outside of porn so that they can lead normal lives beyond porn.
Who is the newest case of HIV?
R64, THAT'S all you've got?? You're ridiculous.
So if I steal money from someone, it's okay, because of Wall Street?
Honestly, this is the new Facebook 'intellectualism'.
@ R70, The problem is how do you know who is the "gay" porn star? I personally don't believe that "gay4pay" exists. It's a myth as far as I'm concerned. Take this guy for instance. He says he is bisexual and likes women more, and yet, in most of his movies he bottoms and he is an escort (prostitute) for men only where he probably bottoms. If the fee is big enough I'm sure condoms versus condomless isn't an issue. I know we men like prostate stimulation but please! Straight male porn stars make no money. Finding straight males to screw a female porn star are a dime a dozen. With porn so pervasive on the internet gay porn stars make no money either. The money is made in escorting and I'm sure even the "so-called, straight" male porn stars on the down low will have sex with another man if the price is right.
The logic in your post seems confused. Straight male porn stars are also likely gay?
Possibly. THERE IS NO MONEY TO BE MADE IN PORN! Not the kind of money like there was as short as ten years ago. The industry is hemorrhaging because of the internet. Therefore many of these guys and gals escort. Now... how many females do you know (or think) hire male escorts? So, if sex is your business the male porn star will go where the business is and that is to the male population. The so-called straight male porn star just won't advertise his services as boldly as many of the gay porn star escorts.
But you seem to be equating sex work with sexual attraction.
Ron Jeremy has banged a million women on camera, but he really might be gay?
I think Rod is gay, not straight.
I don't know since I don't know him personally. But, is it possible that he has slept with men? I'd say it is quite possible. It has less to do with if someone is actually gay or straight quite frankly. It's all about the money. Personal appearances are down significantly--no money there. The pay to do porn is significantly down--no money there. So, why do it? It gives you notoriety to charge higher escorting fees.
However, keep in mind too that Ron Jeremy is totally from a different era of porn. The industry was quite different back then.
How was it different? Jack Wrangler, a gay man, did both gay and straight porn.
Ron Jeremy sucked himself on film, so he's had at least one dick in his mouth.
My heterosexual married friends are swingers, and Ron Jeremy was at their swing club recently for a paid appearance. He went into one of the rooms, and there was a long line of women taking turns having sex with him. Although he isn't attractive, the women want the experience of having sex with a porn star. I'm thinking he must be really hard up for money.
The whole scene is revolting. In order to show that you've paid and have told the truth about your bug status you're issued different medical bracelets. It's as sexy as a factory farm slaughter house.
FUCK lives!!! Get these ho's back to work!!!
"The porn industry will soon begin filming again after an enforced break when four performers tested positive for HIV, it was revealed on Monday.
According to RadarOnline the moratorium could be lifted this week, after actors Cameron Bay, 29, and Rod Daily, 32, as well as two unnamed performers, received positive tests in recent weeks.
'All adult industry performers will be asked to go get new tests this week and as long as there are no new positive tests, production could resume late this week or early next,' the website reported."
When I seroconverted I had absolutely no symptoms.
So, a couple of concerns and questions here. First, this "girlfriend" thing. I suppose it could be true but he escorted with men and ...so did she! LOL!!! I wonder when they screwed each other? Or, was this a PR "thing" to make him and/or her more acceptable for possible future work? I mean... c'mon... the timing. We know from an earlier poster that he does bareback. I'm sure that has not been his only time.
So, what does Rod do for work now? Does he sign on with Treasure Island, Rawsex.com, or bareback.com? Will he still escort? Or, does he join the thread; "What happens to porn stars when they retire?"
Also, let's all be Republicans for a moment. How is he going to pay for his doctors, treatments, and medications?
Make sure you click the Paula Deen moment:
Wasn't he with a female star named Presley
Maddox, or Shanel Brittinnni or something?
R87, she's not going to work again. The straight porn industry has voluntarily adopted testing protocols overseen by an industry trade association. The testing itself is performed in clinics, and the results are read by medical professionals, not porn producers. If you're poz, you don't even walk onto a straight porn set.
On the other hand, Rod could have continued working in gay porn if he'd stayed quiet about his status. No testing at many studios, and when there is testing, it's rarely to straight porn industry standards.
The only gay studio that complies with the testing standards used by the straight ones is men.com. They're a subsidiary to an umbrella company that owns both straight and gay porn studios, and they hold all their porn production companies to the straight industry standard.
That big muscly guy who died (and had a twin) found out his status when Randy Blue tested him. They switched his scene to a solo.
The upcoming film Cum Whore is an all bareback extravaganza featuring many mainstream porn stars.
R89, why don't bi/gay studios get it together for once and take up straight industry standards? Or at least most of them, the more mainline ones...
Furthermore, why isn't this artificial wall between gay and straight sides brought down? Especially since there's already all sorts of blurring between them going on.
Constant stories of guys working in both...various gay porn studios run a straight/bi studio on the side(Corbinfisher, Next Door, Cocksure), and the women they use in those scenes often come from straight porn, etc.
It seems there's some implicit childish homophobia here.
Btw, do you think models who sign to one single studio are safer. BrokeStraightBoys, Corbinfisher, etc models never appear anywhere else, at least not while signed there. They seem a little more confident about it being safer, because they're not studio-hopping all over the place.
Rod Daily calling for condoms? He's used condoms in all his scenes. Is he implying Cameron Bay infected him and not the other way around?
But, @R94 someone (who posted here) has witnessed him barebacking at a private party.
Would someone help me please? Now, I do believe in the Kinsey Scale but c'mon! Why is there a need for gay men to hang onto this fantasy that gay men sleep with women? Is it because many of us can't and would feel more "normal" or "mainstream" if we did? This all comes across to me as some sort of self-loathing. I'm sure it's me but I find it somewhat difficult in accepting a guy who takes 5-8 dicks up his ass returning home to his wife/girlfriend and saying; "Hi. honey. It was a rough day today. I had to take a couple of huge dicks up my ass but now I need some pussy. Let's fuck!"
This guy is an escort for men. Although there is an ad where he advertises for women, but really... how many women do you think hire male escorts, and enough so that someone can make a sufficient living? In the link below he says he doesn't escort. Bottom line... this guy doesn't know what he is. He reminds me of that other porn star Caesar (Derek Michaels) who doesn't know what he is. I just view these guys as having trouble coming to terms with who they really are. Also, what type of women would become involved with such characters? I know some freaky women but please! He's an escort and she is an escort. The most probable reason that they are "together" just might be their drug co-dependency.
[quote] John Magnum lays it all out. he seems like he knows what he's talking about
If you keep scrolling down and reading his comments, it's pretty clear that he regrets getting into porn:
"In today’s job market even college graduates have a hard time finding a good job. Much less for a porn star who wants to get out. What alternative is there? Yes, it would’ve been a great idea to not ever do porn. But that bridge has been crossed already. Arguing over the past is futile."
[quote] Also, what type of women would become involved with such characters?
I wonder if you'd ask that question in reverse in regard to the genders?
She has a rap sheet a mile long. I haven't heard that he does as well.
I know it's harder to believe because of the greater taboo as regards male same-sex acts, but it doesn't shock me that a male gay porn performer has a female partner any more than it shocks me that women who do girl-on-girl scenes go home to a man. At the end of the day, it's a job.
quote] At the end of the day, it's a job.
At the end of the day she'll be nothing but trouble, and there's trouble for all when there's trouble for one.
R97, his attitude seems similar to mine about things I did in grad school. he's still young.
