Adult Film Star Rod Daily Comes Out As HIV Positive

One of his tweets says, "I have also learned that people can be so well medicated that they test negative. Scary, the test everyone relies on." Is that even true? A second actor for, the San Francisco adult film company, announced Tuesday that he tested positive for HIV. The actor, who goes by the screen name Rod Daily, wrote on his Twitter account that he contracted HIV in the past month.'s chief executive, Peter Acworth, said Daily and an actress known as Cameron Bay - who tested positive two weeks earlier - had been dating offscreen for at least six months. The adult film industry's trade association, Free Speech Coalition, issued a moratorium on shooting following Bay's diagnosis. Her last shoot with was on July 31, and all her onscreen partners have since tested negative for the disease, Acworth said. Daily performed mostly in gay scenes, Acworth said. The industry standard is for actors in gay scenes to wear condoms to protect against transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms are optional for actors in straight scenes, but testing is mandatory. "We can say with some degree of confidence that there was no transmission on set" involving Daily, Acworth said. "Rod Daily wore condoms in all his scenes. The strong indication is that Rod contracted it and transmitted it to Cameron Bay." ________ Beyond the blame game, we wish both individuals good health and we applaud Daily for being public with his status.
