You would think John Stagliano of all people would be more protective of his performers’ health considering how both he and his wife Karen are HIV positive. But then I remembered this gem of an interview more than two years ago where he says how his life is ten times better since contracting HIV. His wife gave birth to their second planned biological child just weeks ago. Both children miraculously escaped the disease and are healthy. With the money John has, you can buy the doctors who allow something like this to happen. So his thinking is somewhat skewed where it seems he cares more about government involvement more so than people’s lives.
John Stagliano tells Richard Abowitz at The Daily Beast:
“I worry about the government stepping in and driving the industry out of the state.”
Evil Angel never made the switch to condoms, and Stagliano thinks fans rejected them on aesthetic grounds. “Condoms are ugly,” he says. “They put something between the performers that is totally artificial and that ruins the fantasy.”
“People are already using the term ‘outbreak,’ and it may just be one person who could have engaged in private activity outside the business. That has been known to happen.”
