LOS ANGELES (AP) — A handful of HIV-positive porn actors called on the adult film industry Wednesday to require that condoms be used on all film sets, saying a recent outbreak of infections proves the industry’s mandate that performers be tested every 14 days isn’t working.

The actors spoke at a news conference called by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the group that lobbied successfully last year for Los Angeles County to adopt a condom requirement for most adult films. A U.S. District Court upheld the law last month, but the porn industry has promised to appeal.

“Condoms in porn is not really that crazy a thing,” said Rod Daily, who said he discovered he was infected last month. “If they do care that much about the performers, they would use condoms.”
