Porn star brings the adult film industry to a standstill after contracting HIV


Cameron BayPorn star Cameron Bay has come forward to confirm her HIV diagnosis in an announcement that has sent shockwaves through the porn industry.

The 29-year-old actress has been told by doctors that her blood sample has tested positive for HIV – prompting a moratorium on the making of porn films in the industry hub of San Fernando Valley in California.

Cameron revealed she shot her most recent sex scene with Xander Corvus, the man who played Anthony Weiner alongside the New York mayoral candidate’s latest online mistress Sydney Leathers.

Sydney made her porn debut Weiner And Me which was released yesterday – sparking fears she may have been exposed to the virus.

MailOnline can today reveal Cameron Bay has a wrap sheet of more than 17 charges to her name, some of which were dismissed. She also spent more than a year in prison in Arizona 2007. Her charges range from traffic violations to forgery and aggravated assault.

Cameron Bay is not the porn star’s real name. MailOnline knows her true identity, but has chosen not to print it. Cameron has worked under names including Ashton and Ryder, but before she embarked on a career in porn she appeared on VH1’s Tool Academy in 2009.

The show centers around couples who are sent to relationship boot camp in order to save their unions. The season ran for eight episodes, and Cameron along with her boyfriend of 10 years, Clarence – who had nicknamed himself ‘Celebrity’ – were eliminated in the third episode.

Just two years before her reality TV debut, Cameron spent a year and six months in prison for an unknown offense in Arizona. She was released in May 2008.

Her latest arrest came in February, where she was arrested for criminal damage and disorderly conduct.

She was also arrested in October last year for criminal damage, disorderly conduct and interfering with judicial proceedings.

While in August, she was arrested for failing to show her driving license or identification.

Cameron Bay spoke to Adult Video News to confirm she was the performer responsible for the moratorium on porn production.

Cutting Edge Testing lab told Bay on Wednesday that a blood sample drawn the previous day came back positive for HIV.

She told AVN that she was ‘obviously extremely distraught and in disbelief’, and that an additional test will be conducted to confirm the result.

According to Bay, she received her last clean bill of health on July 27.

Just days later she filmed an unprotected sex scene for a series called Public Disgrace. Her male partner was Xander Corvus.

In a statement to the site, Leathers said both she and Xander got tested prior to shooting their scene, and both were deemed ‘healthy’.

However, the presence of STDs sometimes does not come up in tests for up to three months after exposure.

It takes the body two-to-eight weeks to make antibodies against HIV – known as the window period. Tests done immediately after the exposure or within this window period may not detect the virus and give a false negative result.

The CDC recommends that individuals who have been exposed to HIV and have been found negative before three months have elapsed get retested after three months.

Leathers released a further statement this morning: ‘I do not have HIV and have not been exposed to HIV regardless of the reports out there saying otherwise.

‘I was not contacted by the Free Speech Coalition to re-test, I reached out to them to see if I should re-test and was told I did not need to.

‘I took all the necessary precautions before and after my scene for Vivid and acted responsibly and therefore was able to protect myself from exposure to anything.

‘As an added precaution I retested 2 days after my shoot and again yesterday and was negative.’
