Porn Star Sues

'Buttman' Never Told Me

He Was HIV Positive

6/18/2013 2:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Katie-SummersevilangelA popular porn star who appeared in the movie "Buttman's Stretch Class #4" is suing the male lead (Buttman) ... claiming he failed to disclose that he was HIV positive before they shot sex scenes.

The woman behind the lawsuit is Katie Summers -- real name Katherine Howard -- who claims she was paid to appear in the film back in 2009 ... and the role involved sexual interaction with John Stagliano (aka Buttman).

In Katie's lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, the porn star claims Stagliano had known he was HIV positive since 1997 ... but failed to disclose that information before they shot their sex scenes for the movie.

FYI -- Stagliano has been open about his condition for years.

Still, Katie claims she didn't find out about Stagliano's condition until 2012 ... 3 years after they shot the movie.

In her suit, Summers does not say if she is HIV positive.

Summers is suing for negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual battery. She's also suing John's production company -- Evil Angel Productions -- which produced the flick.

Summers is suing for unspecified damages -- and wants a judge to hit Evil Angel with an injunction forbidding the company from continuing to produce movies with Stagliano unless it discloses his condition to others.

What do you expect when you have random sex with strangers, especially when there is a money component? Why aren't the men and women of America teaching that wisdom to their children? Is money so important that you will sell your healthy body for disease and scabs? News Flash...there are other ways to make money.

And why all the animosity towards female porn stars? Where is the hate for alllll of the men that are in these movies? If you're going to be an ******* about it, at least be equal.

I went and checked screencaps of the video. It's a masturbation video. There is no Penis penetration. She's just looking for a payday.

they have sex for money. Each has a responsibility to use protection. I personally think they both deserve whatever they "catch" since they CHOSE to not use protection

Its hard to feel sympathy for her at all..first of all add old as she is she should know if you don't use protection you can get any STD or HIV etc. n in that industry if she has no knowledge then sorry that is your fault... TMZ I d why this should be a story if you think a female or anyone didn't know a sex partner had a disease n they had sex then you should go visit a health department..this is no story!!!

Porno is legal prostitution, you get what you pay for, she's a big girl, she signed the contract. Some of these turds don't care if they are caring HIV and every other std in the world. They just want to pork as many porn chicks as they can.

He went public with his status a long time ago.

Besides, anybody willing to have unprotected sex with some dude who introduces himself as "buttman" is likely to suffer consequences. That's her own fault.

John Stagliano got AIDS by having unprotected sex with a lady boy in Brazil. Just in case you wanted to know.

Um, whore - if you MUST be a whore for a living, it's YOUR responsibility to cover your ass (pun intended). It's your body - don't let strangers stick things in it unprotected and then start bitching about it years later.
