Two major pornography studios in the San Fernando Valley, California's famed XXX capitol of the world, have placed a temporary moratorium on filming sex scenes following an outbreak of syphilis that has reached a total of nine performers.

According to reports, a male performer in Los Angeles became infected with the sexually transmitted disease but continued to work by forging clean test results. He shot several films before a suspicious director got him to confess.
