Year in Review Continues: AIM Reports HIV Case as “Not a Major Event”; Gay Porn Stars Wed

Porn Valley got another slap of cold reality in the kisser when it was discovered that a female performer tested positive for the HIV virus.
According to an AVN report, because of AIM’s existing protocols, the infected person and all who had worked with her had been quarantined.

“There has been misinformation posted on the boards [GFY] regarding a person testing positive for HIV,” Dr. Mitchell [pictured] said in a press release.

“There has been a person who has tested positive. There were exceptionally few partners, inside and outside the industry. All partners are currently testing negative and in adult employment quarantine. All required reporting has been complied with, as have the AIM and industry protocols. The investigation is ongoing. This is not a major event.”

[Judging by the dignity of that last comment, it looks like AIM could use one of those new public relations agencies that keep popping up in the adult business every couple of weeks.]

When pressed for further information, Mitchell said that she was unable to provide details due to confidentiality issues. And that’s pretty much how the story remained with loads of speculation and guessing who the performer was.

A poster at GFY, the webmaster forum, actually broke the story and narrowed the list of suspects to a 42 year-old MILF with brownish red hair who was a swinger.

How do you pay for your hookers? Dumbass Eliot Spitzer according to court documents met regularly with Emperor’s Club prostitutes, sometimes in cities outside New York and Washington, over 18 months to 2 years, using a variety of aliases and paying with postal money orders.

While we didn’t ask what kind of sandwiches were on the menu, we can at least report the fact that Ron Jeremy opened an upscale swingers club in downtown Portland last year. Club Sesso is located at 824 SW 1st Ave. near the Portland World Trade Center. Because the club is private, there is not a sign on the building. The member’s only club features 11 private rooms with king-size beds, a large group area and a couples-only lounge. It’s owned by Jeremy and business partner Paul Smith.

Their Web site said the club answers “an overdue demand for an exciting upscale swinger’s nightclub in Portland.”

We weren’t invited but, blogger Cristiano Mancini went to Madrid to witness the chic and romantic wedding of gay porn actors Damien Crosse and Francesco D’Macho.

Here’s what he writes about the event on his blog:

“Basically like James Bond I flew from the States to Madrid ( in the same suit ! ) and went to Madrid to the most anticipated wedding of year : my dear friends Francesco and Damien got married ! It was my first gay wedding ever and I was pretty excited. Spain is so liberal and ahead compared to other European countries ( including Italy ..trash that Pope already ! ) to allow marriages between couples of the same sex.

“In a rainy but romantic spring evening Francesco and Damien pronunced their vows at a lovely country house just outside Madrid in front of a small group of friends and family who came from all over the world. Damien’s mother and cousins came from Miami, me and Sue from New York, most of Francesco’s family from Rome and one cousin even from Australia ! And of course the big new “family” of friends from Madrid. The ceremony was very touching : Francesco cried like a bay when Damien was reading his promise..and it was very moving to see the support of their mothers and relatives blessing their love!”

The WoW Gold selling website, www.MyMMOShop.com paid Russian porn performer Anna Morgan to tattoo their company’s logo and website URL to her breasts. [Some reports claim the amount was $500,000 but we don’t believe it.]

The company struck the deal because they felt that Morgan’s natural dd sized breasts provided an ample space for the advertisement, given the number of films porn stars tend to make in a year’s time. Anna also agreed not to alter the tattoo for at least two years.

Santa Monica, CA Mymmoshop.com, which sells virtual currency for massive multiplayer online games, contracted Morgan, to tattoo their company logo and URL on her breasts feeling that the link between porn, the internet, and online gaming is as strong as the pairing of peanut butter and jelly, making this an excellent fit.

“A female porn star can easily appear in 50-100 films per year so this gives mymmoshop.com a lot of exposure for years to come,” according to Hunter Crowell the media relations office for the company.

Morgan, a 19 year old from Zeya, Russia, likes tennis, computer games, and hockey.

A class action lawsuit was filed alleging a wide-ranging extortion scheme involving Las Vegas’s most prominent adult entertainment clubs and taxi and limousine companies. The suit, which was filed in federal court in Las Vegas, alleges that taxi and limousine companies extorted more than $40 million in illegal kickbacks from local strip clubs.

According to the complaint, taxi and limousine drivers demanded payments from the clubs of as much as $100 per male passenger. If the clubs refused to pay, the drivers would simply divert passengers to a different club. The lawsuit claimed that the kickback scheme hurts Las Vegas at a time when the city is already suffering economically.

“Vegas has been one of the top tourist destinations in America for families, but its position is being threatened,” says Jay Edelson, lead attorney for the lawsuit. “This is precisely the type of activity that keeps families away.”

As taxi drivers prefer to pick up men who are more likely to go to strip clubs, the suit claimed that families and women were snubbed by drivers and found it hard to hail a cab at night. The suit also claimed that millions of dollars in tax revenue had gone unpaid to the local, state, and federal government.

The suit was brought on behalf of Theodore Trapp who lives in Southern California, and as a nationwide class. The suit named more than two dozen defendants including, Deja Vu Showgirls, Spearmint Rhino, Cheetah’s, Yellow Cab Co. and Checker Cab Co. It also references Tony Chong, an individual taxi driver who, according to the suit, had publicly admitted his involvement in the extortion scheme.

John Stagliano was asked by The Las Vegas Weekly to review the Sasha Grey film The Girlfriend Experience. It doesn’t sound like he’s too bowled over by it, but you can make your own determinations:

Playboy’s New CEO Says: “Playboy’s Best Days Are Ahead of It” – Playboy Enterprises Inc. named Scott Flanders, president and chief executive of Freedom Communications Inc., as its new CEO and a member of its board.

Flanders, 52 years old, said that while public companies have a responsibility to evaluate any proposals, he will be focused chiefly on building shareholder value by tapping the potential of the iconic bunny-head brand.

“There will be greater long-term value from my focus on those efforts than any other priority I can pursue,” he said. Flanders said that since Playboy’s brand is recognizable around the world, the company’s potential is “well in excess” of its annual revenues of just over a quarter of a billion dollars.

“Playboy’s best days are ahead of it,” he added. What did you expect him to say?
