How do porn actors prevent getting sexually transmitted diseases?

Syphilis alert | US porn industry paralyzed

Los Angeles - Syphilis - a small, painless ulcer in the genital area. A single case of syphilis is now stalling the American porn industry ...

A porn actor worked on sex film productions for several weeks, even though he was knowingly infected with the sexually transmitted disease. Required health certificates were simply forged!

Panic among the porn performers!

The fear of being infected with the sexually transmitted disease is growing.

Some studios stopped running productions.

For now it's hot: Nothing is going on in terms of porn!

That doesn't go far enough for the American adult film industry lobbying group. She is even calling for a nationwide ban on shooting porn films.

The porn industry has an estimated annual turnover of 14 billion euros. Due to the premature stopping of filming, the industry is threatened with a huge loss.

The best possible protection against syphilis is and remains the condom. Because just a few bacteria are sufficient for infection, which are rubbed into the skin or mucous membrane through small, often barely visible injuries.

Venereal diseases

  • gonorrhea

    Gonorrhea is caused by bacteria (called gonococci) and is mainly transmitted during sexual intercourse. Depending on sexual preferences, not only the genital organs, but also the throat and rectum are affected by the pathogens. There is a yellowish-white discharge from the penis and cervix. The disease often runs without symptoms and goes undetected. This can lead to sterility in both men and women. Antibiotics for those infected and their partners can prevent this from happening.

  • Chlamydia

    The most common sexually transmitted disease in men and women in Europe! The bacteria cause inflammation that hardly causes any discomfort. Therefore, the disease often goes undetected. Sometimes women experience painful urination or a slight yellowish discharge. If left untreated, chlamydia can cause sterility in both men and women. Detected early and treated with antibiotics, the risk of developing a chronic disease is reduced. In addition, the partner should also be treated.

  • Genital herpes

    The herpes viruses cause small blisters in the genital area. Once infected, the viruses stay in the body for a lifetime. If the physical defenses are poor, the vesicles reappear. You will be treated with antiviral drugs and brine baths. A cure is not possible. In addition to the genital organs, the herpes blisters can also appear on the anus or in the mouth. New research promises that an ointment can protect against genital herpes.

  • syphilis

    Syphilis is a highly contagious sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacteria Treponema pallidum is triggered. The transmission takes place from person to person during sexual acts through contact with the mucous membrane. Syphilis can also be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy and childbirth (syphilis connata). Typical symptoms are: painless ulcers on the mucous membrane and swelling of the lymph nodes. Often there is a chronic course, which in the final stage can even attack the central nervous system. Syphilis infections are notifiable in Germany.

  • HIV

    The HI virus can cause AIDS. It is found in all body fluids, especially blood and semen. The virus can enter the body through the smallest injuries in the genital area. An HIV test provides reliable information about a possible infection. Until the result you should not donate blood and use condoms during sex. Extensive anti-virus therapy lasting several weeks can be started in the first 72 hours after sexual intercourse. There is no cure for HIV / AIDS.

  • Genital warts

    Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The warts are removed with a laser or electricity. However, they often come back. Human papillomaviruses play a role in the development of penile, cervical and anal cancers. There has been a vaccination against HPV for several years.
