Los Angeles - The adult film industry's trade association is calling for a moratorium on filming after an actor tested positive for HIV.

The Free Speech Coalition said Wednesday the actor's sex partners are in the process of being tested.

The coalition's executive director, Diane Duke, says a possible moratorium would be lifted once any risk of transmitting the disease further has been eliminated.

She didn't identify the actor or say when he tested positive.

Duke did say the actor is not believed to have been infected on a film set.

The industry briefly put in place a similar moratorium last summer after a syphilis outbreak infected nearly a dozen actors.
