HIV-Positive Porn Star

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.

Woogy    

First, since there was no sexual contact, there was no risk of transmitting HIV. Second, it has been common language that he has had HIV for over a decade, which is why he doesn't have any sexual contact. Third, she is just playing dumb looking for a bag of money. Finally, trying to extort money from someone (especially someone with HIV) is just plain wrong.
