Charlie Sheen’s HIV Diagnosis ‘Gave Health Awareness Massive Boost’ Yet Porn Valley is Business as Usual

EDITORIAL: Where are the pornstars in this story? Ya know, those young women who played the major role in Charlie’s HIV status being exposed in the first place? Where is the health awareness being brought to the Los Angeles porn industry workers who are being illegally pimped out, who, BTW, are now PUBLICLY KNOWN to not use condoms onset, in their personal lives OR WITH UNTESTED DRUG CRAZED JOHNS? 

Once again, we witness our US media and government pimps trying to bury the main part of this whole story, that Charlie Sheen got HIV from Porn Valley prostitutes. We don’t know if it was a female, male or transgender he caught it from BUT WE ALL KNOW HE GOT IT FROM AT LEAST ONE OF THEM!

Prof John Ayers: I expect you to hide your state’s dirty little secret. California is a boil on the ass of America!

CDC: Where are the public health warnings about purchasing sex from prostitutes in this story…in particular PORNSTAR PROSTITUTES? You can’t give blood if you pay for sex. Where is there any PUBLIC AWARENESS in this story about purchasing sex for money and the HUGE risks of contracting Super Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HEP C and HIV from just one of them?

You’ve ALL taken a real good peek inside the looking glass here. It’s time to take your butts down in that rabbit hole AND PULL ALL THOSE BUNNIES BACK UP TO REALITY!!

Charlie Sheen’s revelation has had a positive impact on public health.

Charlie Sheen’s HIV admission is likely to have triggered enormous benefits to public health, experts say.

The Hollywood star disclosed he had the virus in November last year.

Now health experts believe his decision to go public is likely to have sparked a hugely positive effect on public health around the world.

Sheen, 50, was the first A-list celebrity to reveal they have HIV.

A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Internal Medicine found his admission led to a record high in news and Google searches for information about HIV, condoms, testing and prevention.

Prof John Ayers, of San Diego State University Graduate School of Public Health, described Sheen’s disclosure as “a potential earth shaking event for HIV prevention”.

The day of the Wall Street star’s disclosure saw 265% increase in news reports mentioning HIV, 97% of which also mentioned Sheen.

His admission also corresponded with the highest number of HIV-related Googlesearches ever recorded in the US on a single day.

Almost three million more Google searches than expected included the term HIV on the day of Sheen’s announcement.

Condom searches increased 75% while HIV symptoms searches and HIV testing searches increased 540% and 214% respectively.

These all stayed at record levels for three days.

Prof Ayers added: “While no one should be forced to reveal their HIV status and all diagnoses are tragic, Sheen’s disclosure may benefit public health by potentially helping many learn more about HIV and HIV prevention.”

Experts say that the Sheen “effect” is likely to have been further boosted because millions of people now access news on smartphones and tablets as well as computers.

There are now concerns that experts have failed to capitalise on the impact

Researcher Eric Leas added: “The Web 2.0 era may heighten the impact of Sheen.

“We have smartphones in our pockets that we can easily use to learn about HIV within seconds with a single search or click.

“At the same time, social media can expand the effect of Sheen’s disclosure beyond the initial television broadcast as networks form around celebrities.”

However, experts also expressed concerns that public health chiefs had failed to capitalise on the opportunity to launch a major new educational campaign about HIV following Sheen’s disclosure.
