Many ask why I decided to stop working as an adult actress back in early 2009 - there are many reasons why (as you can read on my blogs: www.GettingOutOfPorn.com and http://monicafoster.blogspot.com ) but a primary reason had to do with realizing that I felt that maintaining my health and living life free of STD's far outweighed any amount of money I could have earned as a "pornstar".
Today while checking the adult industry news website and blogs to collect material for my weekly broadcast www.MonicaAtHome.com I came across the following post on www.lukeisback.com :
http://www.lukeisback.com/?p=14165 - HIV POSITIVE AT AIM?
Allegedly a male "crossover" performer (a male adult actor who works in both gay and straight porn)has tested HIV positive via AIM (www.aim-med.org) and consequently as of current 1 female talent and 3 male talents who have had exposure to him are now quarantined from the adult movie talent pool (reportedly the number of quarantined individuals is growing).
I've stated many times over the past year or so that NOW IS NOT THE TIME to attempt a career as a porn talent. If you want to get in on the adult entertainment world start as a SOLO WEBCAM model FROM THE COMFORT AND SAFETY of your OWN HOME.
Full report plus my thoughts (video blog - Monica @ Home special report) on the "California porn actor who tested HIV positive - several other quarantined" news story - click here.
Here is a link to the confirmation of the rumor on AVN.com http://business.avn.com/articles/Adult-Performer-Tests-HIV-415455.html
