AHF: Adult Film Study Confirms High STD Risk for Porn Actors

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

An embargoed UCLA Fielding School of Public Health research study of several hundred adult film industry performers will be presented (in poster form) tomorrow at the CDC's 2014 STD Prevention Conference in Atlanta will confirm that contrary to widespread industry spin, adult film performers face significant risks to their sexual health and well-being while working in the industry. Results of the study, which was conducted between August 2012 and June 2013, will be made public Tuesday as the California Senate considers action later this month on a bill to require condoms in all adult films made in California (AB 1576, Isadore Hall, III).


  • UCLA Fielding School of Public Health research study will confirm the health risks -including high STD risk-facing many porn actors working in the industry.
