Canadian Actresses Wait Results

MONTREAL — The HIV porn scare involving a Montreal actress continued to spread as two more performers from the city returned home to await test results after being linked to an HIV-positive actor in Los Angeles. Patricia Petite and Judy Starr (both pseudonyms) returned to Montreal amid a crisis that has paralysed the porn industry on both sides of the border, Frederic Laverge, a Montreal porn producer, said yesterday.

Laverge, of Productions PSA, said he doesn’t know the results of Petite and Starr’s tests.

“They’re awaiting their results,” said Laverge, who produces a sex-reality show called Pornstar Academie.

“They took tests over there but they came back here, that’s all we know.”

The revelations followed news that Quebec actor Lara Roxx tested positive for HIV after shooting recent scenes with performer Darren James. The Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation said on its website Petite and James worked together, while Starr worked with Petite.

An official with Montreal-based Production Eromodel, which has represented Starr and Petite, said their test results should be known next week.

The HIV scare has led to a voluntary North American moratorium on porn production that could last until June. James apparently contracted the virus while shooting a film last month in Brazil.

The names of about 65 performers who had sex with James and Roxx or slept with their movie sex partners were posted on industry quarantine sites that prevent them from working for two months until their next HIV tests are completed.

The crisis has prompted Productions PSA to announce a fundraising effort to help sex-trade workers whose careers have been derailed.
