Adult film actor Macanao Torres committed suicide


Spanish X-rated film star, real name – Pedro Oliver, jumped from the roof of the apartment block where he lived. He was just 35 years old. The HIV activist was tackling stigma around the virus and urged fellow porn actors not to neglect condoms and PrEP usage at work. Known for his work across studios and tubes such as JalifStudio, Hardkinks, Treasure Island Media, Butch Dixon and Dark Alley Media, he had to end his career as he was diagnosed with a deadly and incurable lymphoma. Torres continued his advocacy work as well as being involved in some independent projects until 2018. Torres actively campaigned for better transparency from studios and challenged producers who filmed bareback videos to make their actors’ statuses public. Such blueprints for the adult film industry, activists argue, will help curb acquisition rates.
