Porn Star TJ Cummings Aka Nick Steel Outed As HIV+ Attempting To Work After Testing Positive

The Porn world is like any cult corporation it has no heart nor soul. It is all about the money. Case in point, when it comes to mandatory usage of condoms and safer sex practices being fought tooth and nail by some of the most prominent "stars" and producers in the porn industry. It seems simple wrap it up, use rapid testing on the day of filming, make sure performers are tested for all STDs and not allowed to work if they have them. Common sense thinking better yet use some of the successful models in the sex industries that have fewer rates of transmissions: better education reduces risks.  Earlier this month a porn actor TJ Cummings tested positive for HIV.  A few days later knowing what his test results were (reported by, TJ contacted Pressley Carter another porn star to do a webcam show.  According to an interview Pressley did with, TJ Cummings offered $400 for her to have sex on webcam (this of course after he was informed that his test came back positive).  Luckily, she declined after finding out herself of his status. TJ Cummings has been called a crossover artist meaning he performs in both straight and gay sex work in the porn world. Many experts in the field of sex believe that due to the design of the anus it is highly susceptible to tears and rips therefore penetration via sex and exchanging of bodily fluid (blood, saliva and semen) increase the risk substantially of contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Combined with any drug use like crystal meth, cocaine, molly and Ecstasy a person who loves to have sex can develop risky behaviors under the influence and may need to earn more and more cash to pay for their addictions.  Porn stars have had to up their game as well due to the loss of revenue from the onslaught of free net porn.  Many porn performers make appearances in strip clubs/bath houses, work as escorts and perform web cam shows. Fast money never seems to be enough.  So being addicted to the lifestyle of "Live Fast and Die Young" becomes  the motto where safety, honesty and safe sex don't mean much. The Narcissistic mentality of only thinking of one's self and not caring about exposing others become the norm. So what can we learn from another Porn Star testing HIV+, those on the outside world who think the world of porn has nothing to do with us/them? Learn from the fact that some of these performers are willing to work with STD/STIs and do NOT care if they infect others.  Also like the porn world everyone that appears to be straight is not whether that means with drugs or sex. It is all about the Benjamins, getting off and/or both. So taking someone's word for their status is not a safe bet. Educate Yourself & Play Safe.

Nelson Mandela Has Transitioned Into A Star - A Celebration Of A Life Well Spent

A great African King has made the transition to the Heavens. I love that so many celebrated his passing by dancing and chanting. That is a wonderful way to be remembered, revered and loved. Nelson Mandela inspired so many people to join in the removal of Apartheid in South Africa. Freeing Nelson Mandela from imprisonment and working for the restoration of Human Rights gave many students their first taste on activism. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela's  influence upon the world's stage can't be underestimated but it will be surely missed. South Africa is busy preparing for his memorial which will be a massive event.

Despite Hubby's Cheating Rumors, Kyle Richards Keeps Working It

Kyle Richards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is having a little drama battle with some of her friends/enemies on the show saying that her husband Maurico is cheating. That can't be fun. Whatever arrangement/marriage Kyle and Maurico have is their business. One thing is, the track record for marriages staying intact while people become infamous on Reality TV is BAD. So many divorces and relationship break ups have happened once a couple has signed on the dotted line and the cameras start following them around. Furthermore, producers tend to want the "stars" to amp up the drama til all hell breaks loose. If one wants to save a marriage maybe one should not sign on to do a scripted reality TV show. The above clip is of Kyle Richards helping a customer at her store.
