Did 'Anthony Weiner' Give Sydney Leathers HIV? Porn Star Xander Corvus, Who Played Carlos Danger, Filmed Sex With Possibly HIV-Positive Cameron Bay

There’s a possibility that Anthony Weiner's sexting partner-turned-porn star, Sydney Leathers, was infected with HIV through the male performer who played Carlos Danger in her sex video.

Leathers shot the porn “Weiner and Me” with freelance porn actor Xander Corvus. Corvus, who wasn’t wearing a condom, was the last actor to film a sex scene with Cameron Bay, who recently learned that she tested positive for HIV, according to Gawker.

Bay confirmed to Adult Video News that she tested positive Wednesday afternoon, but she stressed that the result was unconfirmed. She said she was told it’s possible that the test was a false positive and will take another test to confirm the result. The test result is expected to be known Friday.

"When I got the call, I was obviously extremely distraught and in disbelief because there's no way that it's possible in my eyes," Bay told AVN, adding that she tested negative for HIV on July 27. "I don't sleep around, I don't do anything crazy, and I keep track of the people that I've worked with."

Bay said if she does in fact have HIV, she’ll “do everything I can to spread awareness and take care of myself and do the things that are necessary or in my power to do.” But she also cautioned that the result was unconfirmed.

“They're doing more tests, and when I spoke with the doctor, I asked him, 'Is it absolutely, positively HIV?' and he said, 'No, there's a possibility it's not, because there's no such thing as an actual HIV test; they just search for the antibodies that they associate with HIV,’” she told AVN.

Bay’s HIV-positive result shut down the porn industry Wednesday.

Leathers, a 22-year-old Indiana native who sexted with NYC mayoral candidate Weiner, told Gawker in a statement that both she and Corvus got tested before shooting the porn and that both of them were considered “healthy.” She said she underwent an additional test after filming the porn, which also came back negative.

But the results may be unreliable. The Centers for Disease Control urges anyone who gets a negative result for HIV from a rapid-style test to retake the test three months later due to the possibility of false results. The CDC also suggests abstaining from sex or practicing “mutual monogamy” with a trusted partner between tests.

“A negative result does not necessarily mean that you don't have HIV,” the agency says on its website. “That's because of the window period — the period after you may have been exposed to HIV but before a test can detect it. The window period depends on the kind of test that was used on your blood or oral fluid. For antibody tests, if you get a negative result within three months of your most recent possible exposure, you need to get tested again at the three-month mark. For RNA tests or antibody/antigen tests, that timeframe may be shorter.”
