That's right. Diseased scuzzbo in the porn industry will have to wear condoms. Women put their foots down! And LA citizens agree.

Besides being young, adult film actors also have a higher rate than the general population of male bisexuality, both on and offscreen (a risk factor for STDs, including HIV) and probably- this is an educated guess- a higher rate of recreational drug use than the average group of McDonalds employees (another risk factor), if only because they have more disposable income.
They also tend to be uninsured, meaning a probably lapse in diagnosis and treatment of STDs.
All of this, combined with their youth and the fact that they have more sexual partners than the average individual who does not work in porn, makes them a highly at-risk group.

I agree with the vast majority of your assertion. I just wanted to point out a few things. First, correlation is not causation. Being bi is not the actual risk factor. It's sleeping around that is the risk factor. And if you're sleeping around with promiscuous people (porn people) then you're at higher risk generally.

AND, the article point out these factors such as recreational drug use as contributing factors to the problem.

Thanks for bringing this forward.
