Porn Wikileaks was a controversial wiki website which contained the claimed personal information, including the real names, of over 15,000 pornographic actors. The information was presumed to have come from a patient database managed by AIM Medical Associates which has closed due to the lawsuits caused by the leaks, a clinic where many pornographic film performers are tested for sexually transmitted diseases.
The website has received criticism from performers such as Kimberly Kane who stated, "Most of us in the porn industry know who is behind Porn WikiLeaks; he is doing it out of hatred for a business that shunned him for being even too repugnant for porn" Adult performer Christian XXX states, "They posted my real name, the real names of my parents and pictures of them, their home address and telephone number, the name and picture and phone number of my brother, a picture of the cemetery where my grandfather recently passed away, not to mention saying that I have HIV."
