The Brazilian porn industry, Latin America's largest, has long depended on condoms to prevent porn from getting and spreading HIV. Darren James, the American actor who contracted the virus, actors in Brazil, and infected at least one actress after returning to the United States, ''took a risk that many Brazilian actors won't,'' said Evaldo Shiroma, who heads the Brazilian Erotic Industry Association.
Brazil, like many countries, does not require HIV testing for porn actors, and American actors who work in the country often go back to the United States immediately to film more movies, boosting the infection risk.
James performed with 13 actresses after returning to the United States before a blood test two weeks ago showed he was HIV-positive. Since then, more than 50 performers who had contact with the two or their on-screen sex partners have been barred by the American industry from performing pending new tests. But the business is thought to be the second-largest in the world after the United States and is growing rapidly.

Dozens of porn production companies operate in Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city. The films are so widely accepted that videos and DVDs are showcased on corner newsstands. In recent years, a growing number of American and European adult film directors headed to Brazil -- looking for new talent and taking advantage of the collapse of the local currency, the real, that made outsourcing more cost-effective.
Though the Brazilian porn film industry is unregulated, most production actors honor a gentleman's agreement requiring actors to use condoms.
