LadyH answered Saturday March 10 2007, 4:02 pm: Most (if not all of them) are tested constantly. But there's always a chance where an STD won't show up until 6 months later. So..although their test may be negative now, they could be spreading the disease & not having it show up until later. I watched Tyra Banks not too long ago & an 18 year old porn star had filmed over 80 movies & she had caught an STI/STD. As far as prengancy, I'm sure they take their birth control religiously & make trips to get the morning after pill quite often. STDS & pregnancy are not unheard of in the porn industry. You just don't hear about them that much. [ LadyH's advice column | Ask LadyH A Question ]

karenR answered Saturday March 10 2007, 1:13 pm: If you look it up online you will see that is not the case. Many have died of AIDS and many are probably infected with the disease.
Porn star John Holmes was diagnosed with the AIDS
virus in 1985 and continued to make movies until his death in 1988. He infected many people with the virus. I'm sure there were others who did the same.
He made big headlines though. After that happened I believe they now have to be tested often, as WiseAl
So, they actually do get and die of disease all the time. But they just aren't the type of "stars" who are going to get big press. Unless, like John Holmes they knowingly infect a bunch of people. [ karenR's advice column | Ask karenR A Question ]
sizzlinmandolin answered Saturday March 10 2007, 12:01 pm: They don't have random sex. It's not like porn stars are prostitutes. I'm sure everyone is tested constantly so they wouldn't be having sex with someone that had an STD. As for the pregnancy they are probably all on really good birth control pills or something of the like. A lot of the time in porn movies the people don't even actually have sex. If you do it right and are careful about it, sex is actually very safe. [ sizzlinmandolin's advice column | Ask sizzlinmandolin A Question ]
Alin75 answered Saturday March 10 2007, 12:00 pm: The pregnant part is easy enough. They use the pill which is almost completely effective. Im sure that accidents do happen though.
For the disease part I agree with ygsgirl, we dont know what kind of diseases they get. I do know that pornstars have to produce proof that they have been tested for HIV (maybe also other diseases) before every shoot. That means being tested far far more often than the average person. That minimises the risk somewhat. [ Alin75's advice column | Ask Alin75 A Question ]
Brandi_S answered Saturday March 10 2007, 10:54 am: Honestly? How would we really know if they have diseases or get pregnant? We don't.
