Porn Star Sues

'Buttman' Never Told Me

He Was HIV Positive

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.

Stagliano's HIV status has been well known in the industry for years. He doesn't have sex with the girls, he films them in poses, with toys, fetish clothes, etc., the girl gets her rocks off and goes home. I'm sure he assumed she knew, but I'm also sure she's trying to cash in.

There's no sex in Strecth Class movies. IAFD even has him down as a non-sex performer?

Guess we know now he gets them pregnant along with posing them and handing them sex toys. Look at Sheena Shaw.
