It’s been three years since 23 year old gay male porn star, Jessy Karson found out he tested positive for HIV. For any gay man this is hard enough to deal with, but when you’re career is in porn, it makes things much more complicated.

“I was a bit of a slut,” said Jessy as he described the time when he was infected with HIV.

At the time he learned he was positive, Jessy had been working with, dancing and doing some additional work for some other studios.

Jessy made the decision to go on treatment and today he is in control and gets regular check-ups. This being said, he is very aware that studios are very cautious about working with models who are HIV positive. They don’t want to put other models at risk and that limits the options of what they can do.

Jessy turned to studios that used HIV positive models, one of the largest studios being Treasure Island Media. When working for TIM, Jessy was one of six models to be featured in bareback scene, 1,000 Load Fuck.

This one appearance dramatically impacted Jessy’s image as a porn actor and an individual.

“Some people boycotted me,” said Jessy.

Jessy also noticed that since filming that scene other studios were not interested in hiring him.

Today, Jessy is not exclusive with any agency and enjoys the freedom of being able to work with a variety of producers and studios. He understands there are limitations, however he is confident in peoples demand for his bad-boy image and there will be lots of work lined up in the future.

    Well written lesson that every action has consequences somewhere down the line. Good of Jessy to share his trials and tribulations.

    Agreed. I’m glad Jessy was so open and honest. He wasn’t shy about it. He understands there are limitations, but also was extremely knowledgable about the advances in treatment over recent years. He’s currently leading a healthy lifestyle and his HIV is in full control. I think this is great information for anyone who is having unprotected sex to be aware of the risks involved – this is why I always write about it – to provide people with true-life examples from people we typically look-up to and respect. People make mistakes, accidents happen and lessons are learned.

    I love seeing Jessy Karson and have a fetish for knowing his status and being drawn to him and craving his infected seed in my butt to hold in as long as I can. It’s not just poz semen in my as from a man I fantasize about to be the one who converts me. I would do almost anything to feel this Poz and proud role model god ejaculate in my ass and tell me he’s gonna make me sero convert. My poz idol give me your dirty seed. Make me beg for your load. Let me feed your ego and kneel before you willing to take loads from guys you tell to cum in my ass. I’d do any thing to meet him feel his raw cock breeding me as I worship his hiv status… sexually use me share your desire to infect worshipping fans. Jessy Karson rocks.
