There is a new HIV and STD testing service in the Valley. The company is called Talent Testing Service (www.talenttestingservice.com). This company is based out of Florida originally and is used by all the production companies in Florida to test performers. They recently opened a facility in Reseda to compete with Sharon Mitchell’s AIM. I am told by one porner that the tests are twenty dollars cheaper. Representatives of the company were at the AEE show this past weekend in Las Vegas trying to shore up support.
Several other attempts have been made over the years to try and compete with AIM. So far all have failed. The industry, especially AVN, supports Sharon and AIM. It would take major behind the scenes maneuvering to get the industry giants to support a new testing facility.
