The state agency overseeing workplace safety has opened an investigation into an adult-film studio over a shoot involving an actress who last week tested positive for HIV.
Cal/OSHA opened the investigation Thursday into San Francisco-based Kink Studios, which runs a network of fetish sites–in response to a complaint filed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, agency spokesman Greg Siggins said.
Adult-film production came to a halt after the actress, who works under the screen name Cameron Bay, tested positive for HIV in one of the regular sexually transmitted disease screenings required in the industry.
Industry trade association Free Speech Coalition said Wednesday that all performers who had worked with Bay tested negative and that shooting could resume. The coalition maintained there was no evidence the actress had contracted the infection on set.
AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which advocates mandatory condom use in the adult entertainment industry, filed a complaint with Cal/OSHA on Monday relating to a Kink shoot that Bay performed in July 31–her last performance prior to the HIV test.
Bay had tested negative four days before that shoot.
