Derrick Burts contracted HIV, Herpes, and Chlamydia after just a month on the job making gay porn under the name Derrick Chambers and straight porn under the name Cameron Reid. With Chlamydia being curable and Herpes being no big deal to most porn stars his HIV was another matter that shut down filming across the entire industry for several weeks.
Porn officials blamed the infection on private personal activity at first, but Burts claimed that was impossible because before going pro the only person he had sex with was his girlfriend. Eventually porn officials changed their story stating that he got it from an oral sex scene with another male actor.
Derrick Burts has since called on the adult film industry to start making people use condoms in movies. The industry thinks that condom use is a bad idea because perverts on the internet would rather not see condoms in their masturbation material.
