The moratorium to halt production of porn filming in the wake of a series of positive HIV tests will be lifted as soon as this week, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

"All adult industry performers will be asked to go get new tests this week and as long as there are no new positive tests, production could resume late this week or early next," an industry insider told Radar.

As Radar was first to report, four actors have now tested positive for HIV in the porn business - actress Cameron Bay and actor Rod Daily have publicly come out as testing positive, but the other two identities remain publicly unconfirmed.

"The third performer to test positive for HIV does not appear to have contracted the virus while performing in adult film," the industry watchdogs, the Free Speech Coalition along with Performer Availability Screening Services, said late last week.

"Three doctors from the PASS medical advisory board announced to FSC that all performers who worked with Performer 3 have tested negative."

The fourth, a male, confirmed his diagnosis to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, though the FSC and PASS has yet to acknowledge the infected performer.

The end to the embargo will be a welcome relief to many studio who has struggled under the moratorium.

Despite the ban, however, several porn production companies have secretly continued to film, as Radar previously reported.

"It's stupid, selfish and dangerous," an industry insider told Radar.

"The industry is against using condoms because it would affect tape sales, but it'd be like allowing people to race cars without helmets on!"
