HIV-Positive Porn Star

XXX Actress Wasn't at Risk

'Cuz We Didn't Have Sex!!!

The HIV-positive former male porn star known as "Buttman" couldn't possibly have put a female XXX actress at risk  -- because he never had sex with her ... so claims his porn company.

TMZ broke the story ... porn star Katie Summers has filed a lawsuit against Buttman (real name John Stagliano) as well as his company, Evil Angel Productions, claiming Stagliano never disclosed he was HIV-positive before co-starring with her in sexual scenes.

Summers says she performed alongside Stagliano in "Buttman's Stretch Class #4" back in 2007, and the role involved sexual interaction.

But a rep for Evil Angel Productions has posted Katie's scene from the movie online ... and it doesn't show ANY penetration.

The scene features touching for sure ... but no genital-to-genital contact.  As far as we know, you can't get HIV from what's depicted in the flick. The rep says, "It's the equivalent of shaking hands."

In the interest of full disclosure ... Evil Angel posted the entire scene on their website. 

We contacted Katie's lawyer, Robert Starr, who admits his client is NOT HIV-positive -- and while she didn't have sexual intercourse with Stagliano, the lawyer still feels Stagliano should have disclosed his condition.

Maybe some people not aware HIV/AIDS exists might buy that but HIV transmits across bodily fluids. An open sore, papercut, etc. can transfer HIV. Little kids picking scabs copying "My Girl" - that action can transfer HIV. Good grief, I'd hope people would know better in this day and age that while the most *common* method of transmission is sex, it's not the ONLY method of transmission. He should have disclosed it... period.

something tells me "shaking hands" means something different to folks in porn than it does to those not in the industry.

All of you are seriously uneducated about how HIV is transmitted! Sexually it can only be transmitted through unprotected vaginal or anal sex. That's it. The only other way to transmit is by using drug needles with someone who is infected. Kissing, fingering, oral sex of any kind, regardless of cuts bruises bumps acne whatever does not transmit HIV. You need to stop spreading false information about a topic you know nothing about.

I looked up this sluts movie "credits" on imdb. Among her other movies, she had a starring role in two classics called American SheMale X3 and TS Jane Marie, 5 Star Bitch. If I'm correct, the part of the porn industry that makes gay and transsexual movies doesn't even bother with HIV testing, yet this trash is more than willing to star in at least two Chicks with ***** films.
.
This Bimb is just looking for an easy payday. Throw her out with the rest of the trash.

What an ignorant sl*t. That would be like assuming everyone she touches is gonna get an STD. Instead of throwing it up in the air, she needs to put her butt in a school desk and learn something.

What is with everyone's obsession with sex in the rear end? Doesn't anyone have sex the normal way anymore? What a bunch of perverts the younger generation has turned into.

What's next, is this dim bulb going to claim she's pregnant after letting a guy take her up the poop-chute?

I don't think her lawsuit claims that this guy gave or may have given her HIV. She's suing for damages due to mental anguish. The porn company is trying to make her look like an idiot which is totally unnecessary because she's done a great job of doing that herself.
She claims she didn't know the guy was HIV positive, which is plausible. The company and the guy should engage in full disclosure so that she and other performers can make an informed decision. I'm not saying they didn't disclose, but they should have been totally up front about it. They would have avoided this whole mess in the first place.

So people with HIV should start walking around with a "scarlet letter" stating they are HIV positive. If that is a case why don't we tattoo all humans with transmittable deseases on the forehead with Tuberculoses, Hep C, AIDS. This ladies lawyer is a complete idiot, and this is a complete waste of tax payers dollars.

PS. The porn industry is disgusting when it comes to things like this. They say it is so safe, and regulated, but we all know that is complete hogwash.

If you don't like HIV don't sleep around a lot, and don't have unprotected sex.

John's HIV status is well known. Has been for almost 2 decades. He has even been on TV shows talking about it.
