Shouldn't this be HIV/AIDS in the pornographic film industry or HIV in the pornographic film industry? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:19, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Actually, shouldn't it be "HIV/AIDS in the United States pornographic film industry"? Nowhere else seems to be mentioned. hamiltonstone (talk) 01:24, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Propose broaden scope and rename[edit]

Find sources: "stds in porn industry" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference

I propose that the scope of this article be broadened and that it be ranamed STDs in the porn industry. There isn't only a problem with HIV/AIDS, and it isn't only among those in the porn FILM industry. Lightbreather (talk) 19:56, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Notice of standardizing citation formatting, dates, etc.[edit]

I'm going to spend a day or two standardizing the article's citation formatting, including dates. The dates are a hodge-podge, but the first and last are in "dd Month yyyy" format, so that's what I'm going to use. Lightbreather (talk) 21:07, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Wallice sources[edit]

The Wallice paragraph in the 1980s and 1990s section is not well sourced. I am preserving these here for discussion.

"Porn" in the title[edit]

Considering this is an informal short form of 'pornography', perhaps this article should be renamed to 'STDs in the pornography industry'? Banedon (talk) 01:21, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Split off HIV/AIDS section?[edit]

The section on HIV/AIDS in the porn industry has more than enough content for its own article, and splitting it off would free up the rest of the main article for coverage of STDs in the porn industry in general, as well as of non-HIV/AIDS STDs in said industry.

On October 12, 2010, AIM reported that an actor or actress had been infected with HIV. The name and gender of the person was not released to the public.[1]

Whoop whoop pull up, see WP:Spinout and WP:No split. Going by the current state of the article, and that most of the research into "STDs in the porn industry" has concerned HIV/AIDS, there is no need at all to split off that content into its own article; it is relatively small, and so is the article as a whole. Ideally, content should only be split off into its own article when needed. You can ask at WP:Med for more opinions on this matter. Flyer22 (talk) 15:22, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
