LONDON – Three gay actors have been diagnosed with HIV after participating in a bareback porn shoot here, British gay entertainment and culture magazine Boyz reported in its Oct. 18 issue.According to Boyz reporter Karl Ryan, the three unidentified young men, ages 18, 21, and 26, contracted the infection as a result of unprotected sex with a fourth actor who didn’t realize he was HIV-positive until three days after shooting wrapped. Ryan reported the movie director had the other three actors undergo a rarely used 48-hour DNA screening that indicated they also now bear the infection.

The standard HIV antibody test in London requires a three-month waiting period between time of infection and accurate results, according to Riley. At least one gay adult entertainment producer has begun screening all performers with the 48-hour test before allowing them to perform in bareback scenes, but some health professionals feel the test is unreliable because it returns a high percentage of false-positive results and requires a standard antibody test for confirmation of infection.
