Back in August porn star Cameron Bay was shocked to learn that she tested positive for the HIV virus. When Bay learned of her diagnosis, she released a statement to inform the public, which ultimately led to the temporary suspension of the adult film industry. The actress' boyfriend, Rod Daily, also tested positive for the virus weeks later. Now, the couple hopes to use their unfortunate circumstances to raise awareness regarding sexually transmitted diseases and the adult film industry, the Huffington Post reports.

During a recent press conference organized by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Bay and Daily, along with three other current and former adult actors told reporters about the unsafe working conditions of the porn industry. Bay tearfully told reporters the shocking tale of her last shoot before testing positive. She revealed that her costar actually began bleeding from his penis and he was not wearing a condom. Bay went on to say that although the cameras stopped rolling momentarily, the actors eventually continued the scene.

“We continued to work even though he had a cut and we did not use a condom,” Bay revealed.

“There were up to 50 people in the room with us. And we were laying on top of them. And they were touching inappropriately. It all happened so fast. I didn’t realize how unsafe it was until I saw the pictures … You’re on a whole other level when you’re doing something so extreme,” Bay went on to describe her final shoot.

One performer, Patrick Stone, claimed that although he tested positive for HIV, his employer, Kink.com, knew this and asked him to perform in a shoot the very next week. The company, of course, denies these claims, insisting that they were never made aware of his positive test. Thankfully, Stone has taken two tests since his initial positive test, which have both come back negative.

“It’s been kind of a whirlwind week for me emotionally. I feel that the testing process for Performer Availability Screening Services is not working. If I was allowed to fall through the cracks like I did, who else is out there? I mean, they had me scheduled for a shoot tomorrow and as far as they knew, I was HIV-positive,” Stone said.

Daily also voiced his issues with the industry and their lack of concern for their actors.

“I just don’t know how an industry stands here and says they care so much about their performers and, a week after someone tests positive, they’re out there shooting without condoms,” Daily said. “Ultimately, it’s a business, and their main concern is money and not their performers.

Bay also took to her Twitter page to say that she hopes her story will help someone else.

“I have said many times… if my story can help at least one person then good. I'm not fighting for or against anyone other than fighting against HIV/AIDS,” the retired actress tweeted.
