    A second performer at a California adult film company has tested positive for HIV.

    The announcement was posted on the Twitter account of actor Rod Daily, of San Francisco's Kink Studios. Kink chief executive Peter Acworth told the San Francisco Chronicle that Daily and an actress known as Cameron Bay, who tested positive last month, are in an off-screen relationship.

    "I know it happened last month," Daily said in an interview Tuesday with the Los Angeles Daily News. "I know I don’t have a crazy lifestyle."

    A Tweet posted Tuesday on Daily's account read, "Drumroll please!! I'm 32 years old and I'm HIV positive. Acute HIV, which means I recently was infected. For that I am blessed.

    "With the tests I have done the doctors have figured out that I was infected within the last month."

    An agent for Daily, also known as Joshua Rodgers, told the Daily News that his client has worked in the industry since 2010 on sets that require condoms. 

    Last week, an adult film industry group lifted a moratorium on adult film production that was prompted by Bay's diagnosis. The Canoga Park-based Free Speech Coalition lifted the ban after all performers who worked with Bay were medically cleared.

    In June, a male adult film star was jailed after he was convicted of knowingly exposing two female costars to syphilis.
