Was Sydney Leathers Exposed To HIV In Porn Debut?

| by

An adult industry performer tested positive for HIV earlier this week, sending shockwaves through the porn community and ceasing production on many projects.

Cameron Bay has appeared in adult films since 2010 under various names and shot her most recent sex scene with Xander Corvus — the man who starred as Anthony Weiner in Sydney Leathers' just released porn debut "Weiner and Me." Bay tested positive for HIV on Tuesday and will soon have an additional test to confirm the result. She last received a clean bill of health on July 27.

After that test, she appeared in a scene with Corvus for the notoriously brutal Kink.com series “Public Disgrace.” She sustained an injury on the set and has not performed in anything else since.

"When I got the call, I was obviously extremely distraught and in disbelief because there's no way that it's possible in my eyes," Bay said. "I don't sleep around, I don't do anything crazy, and I keep track of the people that I've worked with."

She continued, "If it is [positive] I will of course do everything I can to spread awareness and take care of myself and do the things that are necessary or in my power to do. But it is unconfirmed. They're doing more tests, and when I spoke with the doctor, I asked him, 'Is it absolutely, positively HIV?' and he said, 'No, there's a possibility it's not, because there's no such thing as an actual HIV test, they just search for the antibodies that they associate with HIV.'"

Leathers said both she and Corvus received “healthy” test results prior to shooting their scene, Gawker reported. Leathers is best well-known for “sexting” with NYC mayoral hopeful Weiner.
