LOS ANGELES — (12-05-22) — PASS announced on Monday that it is calling for a seven-day production hold on adult content after reporting an alarming increase in STIs among adult performers and content creators.

PASS is asking that all producers and performers should abstain from non-solo adult content production until December 12, 2022.

“We are calling the production hold out of an abundance of caution,” says Ian O’Brien, executive director of PASS. “Given the changes in the industry and recent increase in testing outside of the PASS system, we are concerned that data we have may not be reflective of the experiences of performers. The seven day production hold and required retest will help identify any existing infections and prevent potential transmissions. We will provide more information to the community as it becomes available.”

According to PASS, “All tests within the PASS system will be reset, and performers will need to retest on or after December 12, 2022 in order to be cleared for work. Those who are not currently testing within the PASS system should also retest on or after December 12, and make sure that potential partners have also tested clear on or after December 12.”

According to the testing center, adult production hold requests comes after reports on an increase in chlamydia among adult performers and content creators. Over the past several days, PASS has been in contact with labs, performers and producers.

Performers who work within the PASS system are required to test every two weeks for a full slate of STIs, including HIV, chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhea. Thankfully there hasn’t been an onset transmission of HIV on a PASS-regulated set in over 10 years.

PASS has provided the adult film industry testing guidance and has administered the adult film industry testing database since 2011.
