The battle over condoms in porn seemed to turn into a full-on war last week after the AIDS Healthcare Foundation paraded an HIV-positive performer in front of reporters and then gloated when news dropped that the industry's main STD testing clinic was closed down by the state after the AHF complained repeatedly about it.

AHF wants the state to enforce condom use on-set in porn, and it wants the city and the county to stop allowing condom-free adult video production in Los Angeles.

The clinic, the Adult Industry Healthcare Foundation, provided testing for actors and allowed producers to ensure talent was on-record with a clean test.

That wasn't enough for AHF, which argues that a performer can have contracted HIV, for example, after testing negative, and still have a clean bill of health from AIM if the test was recent enough.

In fact, the latest HIV scare happened after Derrick Burts contracted the virus. He says he got it during a gay shoot involving a partner who was positive. Doubts have been raised, however, as gay porn mostly uses condoms, and Burts has been spotted freelancing on a male escort site called Rentboy.

In any case, being in the porn capital of the world, the Weekly has seen some passionate and insightful comments on our stories about the battle.

Our commenter of the day, porn star Justin Long, is vowing not to work with anyone who shows up on-set with a test from AHF or the county. He smells conspiracy here and wants to support AIM as it tries to get its state licensing in order.

Damn AHF .. I have already vowed as a performer that I WILL REFUSE TO WORK w/ any talent that shows up with a test from AHF or the County of Los Angeles, because neither of these entities should be profiting from their witch hunt of AIM !!!

All AHF is doing is pushing to place talent even further at risk by taking away our only means of verifying weather a test is "real" or is a fraud.
