It definitely sounds as if CF was NOT involved in the recently reported IV transmission on a gay porn shoot in NV.
CANOGA PARK, Calif. — California’s Department of Public Health has issued an alert after finding evidence that a gay porn performer has become infected with HIV.
The state Department of Public Health states a male actor tested positive for HIV after engaging in sex with several other male performers during two separate film shoots.
He had tested negative before the shoot.
One performer from a second shoot has since tested newly positive for HIV, the report said. Lab results indicate the first performer who tested positive "probably transmitted" HIV to the second performer.
The Free Speech Coalition has released a statement regarding the news:
Yesterday, the California Department of Public Health released information about an incident this past September concerning a performer with HIV working on a non-compliant adult film set in Nevada. This is, however, not a ‘current threat’ as stated in the press release.
At the time of the incident, the Free Speech Coalition immediately cooperated with the Department of Public Health, and called a moratorium to determine if there was any risk of transmission to performers on PASS compliant adult sets. Non-complaint shoots are one of the chief dangers of pushing the adult industry out of state, and outside the established testing protocol.
The shoots in question did not adhere to the PASS testing protocols and were shot outside of the PASS testing database used by adult performers. Not only did this leave those who participated at risk, it made it much harder to track scene partners once the possible infection was discovered.
While the set did use a degree of HIV testing, it fell below the standard set by PASS protocols, including the use of an ELISA HIV tests, rather than the highly sensitive RNA tests required by the industry. The ELISA tests have large window periods that delay how early an infection can be detected, and have not been accepted within the adult industry for over a decade.
Neither did the shoot utilize the PASS database. However, once alerted by the DPH to the incident, the Free Speech Coalition worked swiftly to shut down production within the larger industry and help track any possible exposures in or out of the PASS database. While performers in the PASS database were not affected, participants on the non-compliant shoot may have been exposed.
The adult film industry has been working with government agencies including Cal/OSHA to bring remaining producers shooting outside of the PASS protocols into compliance. The PASS system utilized by the industry is a proven testing protocol that has been effective in preventing any on-set transmission of HIV for more than ten years.
Happy New Year to all of you guys!!!
Happy NY everyone
FINAL UPDATE for 2014
It Was A Fabulous Year @ CF
(1) NEW CF-11 Website
(2) 1st POV - ACS .... Hope More Are Coming.
(3) Lots of NEW FACES and BODIES.
(4) COLT - Voted "Freshmen of the Year"
(5) TWO - CFSelect Exclusive RE-POST @ ACM (NO Additional Charge)
(6) CF- Goes Almost DAILY Updates per Week.
(7) BEST Holiday Combo Sale Price - Every Offered.
Not really used to seeing explicit ACS pictures first thing in this thread but Tiffany looks cute. Call me crazy, but I wouldn't kick her out of bed (unless she kept distracting from me). Kind of refreshing not seeing freaky hair, piercings or a tramp-stamp, actually both her and Kellan look refreshingly beige.
Ditto Singularity. I was really taken back by the small number of votes cast in the annual popularity sweepstakes. I assume CF to be a worldwide subscription site drawing thousands if not tens of thousands members. I may have vastly over-estimated the size of this adult entertainment empire. (I also assume that BA has the largest worldwide membership).
Regardless, Happy 2015 from So Calif!
^ Most subscribers don't bother with the voting, sweepstakes or blog-ish content. That would be like reading the articles in Playboy magazine.
Popping back in after a long absence to say Happy New Year to all. It's good to see a lot of familiar posters
^^ and a Happy New Year to you as well as all the other posters.
I can't tell you how much it bothers me seeing Kellan in a straight scene. I keep hoping that he isn't. At least not entirely.
I feel the same way whenever I see Kenny in a straight scene.
I've long since made my peace with Josh being bisexual, if that helps?
Most of the guys are bi or at least curious with a leg or two up over the fence, labels are just the guideline for marketing, and we've all fallen for it. I'm paraphrasing, but didn't Curtis once said "aren't we all a little 'bah'?" and that dirty-minded conservative DIY home owner is back showing off his deepthroating skills on SC.
Please, does anyone know what ever happened to Chandler? He suddenly disappeared.
Did CF change their minds and decide to see the scenes from the Tampa shoot individually?
I was looking for a Brayden scene and this is what I found:
The very first scene for Brayden is a CFS scene titled "Brayden Gives It To Zeb" with a post date of 1-2-2015.
This was part of the Tampa Collection.
What's the deal? This video isn't listed on the home page.
First time I checked out the new site today - looks good.
A couple of questions if I may
1) Have they removed all download limits so that you can now download as much as you like? Previously it was 8GB in any 24-hour period.
2) The download options are now reduced to two - Full HD and SD. Is the former 1920x1080 MP4 for every video?
It's a shame that this hasn't be made more clear this is what is happening
I guess selling as a "collection only" was such a financial success (nobody here made any comments on the collection) that resorting to individual sales was warranted.
In terms of quality, I think Tampa was the best of the recent road-trips.
Happy New Years!

Why does CF keep re-releasing old clips as new updates?
^^^ Happy New Year YF and Everyone
just wanted to say the kellan POV scenes on ACS is incredibly sexy. one of their best in a while. real sex, he's really into it, so is the girl, a few incredible shots, just a perfect sex scene. and goes on to prove he's straight, as he's never performed so passionatly, so naturally in his gay scenes. can only hope to have such a real scene on ACM, without the fake porn, the usual shots in them.
And while gay rights are progressing so fast, CF is further slipping in the Dark Ages. Today they released the nastiest anti-gay scene in their history. While the world is fighting conversion therapy they want to "pray all the gay away" and force another openly gay model to do a disgusting scene to please straight-worshippers like "PopsUp".
CF owner must be a proud God-fearing Republican!
CF is so weird these days. I received this promo offer this morning since I signed up for the newsletter (which can be erratic since I did not receive CF's holiday wishes for instance):
(if you click on the cap, it should take you to the offer if you use it with a browser where CF didn't store its cookies beforehand I think)
So basically they are offering the regular $24.99 subscription for $15 to the people that have subscribed to the newsletter. Now remember that you don't have to be a subscriber to receive the newsletter, you just have to have signed up for it.
So by doing this they risk alienating regular subscribers who didn't sign up for the newsletter and would enjoy the reduced price. And they also won't reach a wide audience of non-subscriber since I guess the newsletter base is fairly limited.
I don't understand the point?
I won't partake in this since I'm going to be leaving CF pretty soon.
Plus cheaper site probably means even cheaper Newbie hires in 2015 and since I wasn't happy at all with the 2014 crop, I'm not there for that.
Now, if they announce, during CF11 for instance, that they have finally shipped the person(s) in charge of casting these days off to BSB where they belong, now that would have a completely different effect on me.
That plus the end of the enforced apartheid on the site of course.
Lots of bitching about CF and not one comment about the Zeb, Marc and Quinn video that I thought was a solid five (5).
^ It was a nice scene, Marc being notably animated - almost flirty. How can you not like Marc?
The ass comparison in the shower was fun also. I guess I was happiest to find Zeb's performance a *huge* improvement over some of his zombie performances of a few months back. I wonder if there has been some event in Zeb's life that inspired the change.
A real concern. I'm hoping they latch on to Simon, if he doesn't return to SC. At least CF can provide him with some puck-sluts.Plus cheaper site probably means even cheaper Newbie hires in 2015 and since I wasn't happy at all with the 2014 crop, I'm not there for that.
I thought it was a nice scene, too. Marc may need to turn down the volume a bit. The usual complaints about too many close-ups, etc. Liked the visual Zeb spread eagle gang-bang position at the climax, especially Marc's thick cock entering him. Quinn fucking Marc's cum into Zeb was also fun and dirty. Agree that Zeb seems to have found his early enthusiasm again. The shower was fun. Liked that Quinn seemed like he was trying to coax them into another round. Wished we could have seen if he was sucking face with Marc at the very end.
No comments on Clinton & Colt. Skipped past the three minutes of footies -- tinea pedis may be an STI @ CFU. On the whole preferred Clinton's scene with Brant, but I think Clinton had just as good a time. The ending of both scenes would have been improved by proper, gravity-driven facials. Bending over to catch the load looks extremely awkward.
I finally let my subscription lapse so haven't watched any new scenes for a while. None of the new crop of guys seems to be outstanding based on the stills that non-subscribers can see. Are any of them outstanding performers? If I were to rejoin, any must have recent scenes?
I've been going through my stored files of old scenes and reliving some of the glory that was Brent, early-to-mid Travis, Cade, and even Trent. I still have a soft spot for Trent - he just seemed so overwhelmed (in a good way - OMG, I get to have sex with DAWSON and get paid too?) in the scene with Dawson.
Also watched my favorite bi scene with Olivia, Connor, and Travis. Loved the end where Travis is jerking off while watching Connor fuck Olivia. I always wondered if that was scripted or if they just went with it after the scripted part was done.
^^ You hit on one of my favorite Travis/Connor scenes. I always figured that having Connor fuck Olivia after Travis was scripted (there are several other videos with this "plot"). But I was never sure whether Travis cuming a 2nd time was planned or not. I always wondered whether Travis was turned on watching Connor fuck Olivia because he thought it was hot 1) watching Connor fuck someone, 2) watching Olivia get fucked, 3) watching a hot guy fuck a hot girl, OR 4) watching two people have sex. The "gay guy fantasy" in me always thought he was mostly watching Connor, but realistically it was probably just Travis watching some hot sex.
For my money, the most unscripted part of a video with Connor and Travis was the Aiden and Connor fucks Travis scene, where Aiden cums a second time just as Connor is starting to cum and Connor looks at Aiden with an incredulous look of "this is supposed to be my cum shot, not yours buddy" and/or "what the fuck are you doing now".

Aiden was always great, though. He was so geeky and nerdy, but with a superhero's physique, and I always felt like that lent itself to a lot of humour (most of it unintentional) in his performances.
Seriously, why must CF make Quinn do a ACS scene? It just ruins everything. Disappointing.
CF will just simply stop at nothing and make all the guys have sex with a girl, even the gay ones.
Come on it was just a blowjob, even if he did have full on sex with her its nothing that thousands of gay men across the world are probably doing right now just through shear curiosity.
I've brought this up several times, but AJ/Blu Kennedy actually banged the chick in his scene with Eric the Tripod.
Pet peeve: does it bother anyone else the way they make the top hold his balls so the camera can get that close-up of the in-and-out? It was particularly annoying in the recent Brant Clinton scene, especially since seeing Brant's gigantic balls slap against Clinton's butt would have been a highlight.
Brant's balls as hot as his dick, IMHO. They're certainly sized to it! They should do a ball-worship sequence, like Travis did with Trevor & Dawson.
I almost missed the edit cut-off as I was getting a blow job from the meter maid.
Based on experience a gay guy would not get head from a chick, especially since guys are so much better at it

If a legit straight guy wanted to experiment with another guy, why can't a gay guy do the same? Unless you think he's actually being held hostage, at which point, someone should've called 911 by now.
What's a gold star gay? More glittery than a shiny bedazzled man purse?
Come on, you drool over a bunch of self-proclaimed straight guys fucking each others brains out again and again but how dare a woman suck off a gay guy.... a crime against gay porn.
Hmm. Why is it I feel like I'm sitting on the wrong end of the weirdest conversation ever?
Besides, you don't need to have an ACS account, right? So my best tip is to just enjoy the guys when they're enjoying themselves, and not worry about it. Far worse things happen.
So what happens when you take to CorbinFisherSupport to complain about the non-existent updates like a couple of people have done recently?
Well here is CF's official answer:
We are certainly in the business of keeping you guessing! Enjoy!
So a giant middle finger in short. Nice!
The Noel/Jacob and Colt/Rowan scenes weren't bad exactly, but they weren't hot either, at least to me.
Jacob's body is maybe the best at CF right now and we just didn't get to see much of it - body parts, of course, but the medium and long shots weren't advantageous. Noel was featured in the photography and he's no Jacob, to put it as gently as possible. Once again, the wrong guy got fucked; both guys look better in the opposite role.
Colt and Rowan followed direction, hit their marks, did everything requested, and it just wasn't hot.
Both scenes were limited by geography - on the stairs and in a confining chair. OK, CF's trying to vary things, but it didn't work in either case.
