HIV+ Porn Star Speaks Out



The L.A. Times has an interview with Derrick Burts, the 24-year-old male porn star who contracted HIV recently. Burts, who has worked in gay and straight porn, as Derek Chambers and Cameron Reid respectively, discovered in early October through the adult industry’s AIM Healthcare Foundation that he had contracted the virus. Burts believes that he was infected by a fellow performer on the Florida set of a gay porn movie while AIM has previously stated that Burts was believed to have been infected through personal sexual contact and not while working in the porn industry. Whatever the case, Burts is speaking out now in an attempt to bring attention to the fact that most porn sets do not require condom use during sex scenes. “It’s very dangerous,” he stated of working in porn. “It should be required that you wear a condom on the set.” [L.A.

Porn Star Sasha Grey Lands Yet Another Mainstream Role

Porn star Sasha Grey continues her crossover trajectory from the adult industry to mainstream entertainment with a new role in a movie called “Skinny Dip.” Grey, who played a call girl in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience” and scored a recurring role on “Entourage,” takes the lead role in “a revenge story involving a young woman and a policeman,” Movieline reports. The film is directed by Frankie Latina and costars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriquez, and Eric Roberts. It seems entirely possible that in the not-too-distant future, the line between “mainstream movies” and “porn” will cease to exist and NC-17 ratings will become a thing of the past. What do you think? [Movieline] Keep reading »

Capri Anderson: The Woman Who Was In Charlie Sheen’s Hotel Room

We knew it was just a matter of time before the alleged prostitute who was in the hotel room with Charlie Sheen turned up. Tada! Her name is Capri Anderson, and she is a 22-year-old porn star. She was born Christina Walsh, but has also gone by the alias Alexis Capri. She’s done oodles of adult movies, but she swears up and down she is not any kind of call girl. Apparently, she was introduced to Sheen on Monday at the bar at the Plaza Hotel, and then went to dinner with him and seven friends. At one point, Denise Richards stopped by and snapped a totally awkward photo with Capri. Keep reading »
