    I have noticed recently that more and more gay porn studios are shifting back to bareback sex scenes.

    do not you think that is a bit weird considering all the risks involved.. or it is all about the money ??

    what do you think guys ??

    I wish I could too.

    why should there be risk if they get tested Directly before the scene? I mean they those 20 min take home tests they could easily use. BB porn is the best porn.. We aren't kids, we know not to mimic such a thing on a whim so Really why not?

    Because the virus doesn't really show up in tests for 3-6 months after exposure. Or so I believe. Meaning, he could have contracted it the night before and the test the next day right before his scene it will show up negative.

    EDIT: WOW. This paragraph is just....me speak English good. icon_neutral.gif

    Point is - a test right before isn't safe.

    Most of the bitches they slay are on the pill.

    As far as STD's go, yeah they could get them.. but they don't.

    Gay guys just have more bugs floating around it seems.

    Yes but, I may be wrong So No One Test This Theory.. lol

    I thought if you just got it, you can't spread it until it is active in you

    They need a regular monthly test and a test right before then I think they will be good.. call me selfish cause I like only watch BB but if this can't keep them safe still I understand

    so i guess it is a 50/50 risk.

    but again what is life without taking risks.

    however it is worth it (spending your life with AIDS as a result of one lousy night ???) specially if you are not doing it for love .. just for the money

    It's about the tragically mistaken idea that AIDS is now nothing more than a chronic, manageable disease.

    So it is, unless the meds don't work, or they stop working after a time, or they produce bad side effects, or you can't afford them......

    ...or Hep C or Antibiotic resistant clap or syph, or herpes, or hpv...

    I think it's tragic and dangerous. Viruses adapt and mutate. I do not wish harm to anyone, but if not careful, a new adaption of aids that is resistant to current drugs could happen. Then what?

    Again, I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

    In addition, home testing can produce false negative results so they cannot be 100% reliable. The most accurate HIV testing is called a PCR DNA. The DNA is isolated to look for the virus. The problem with this test is the expense at, last I heard, around $700.

    They get RNA tested if I am correct. Don't know the specifics but I'm sure it shows up before the incubation period of HIV is over.


    And then there's this nasty studios (y'all know I'm talking about TiM) that you know everyone has it already. I say nasty cos they're disgusting not cos they got the bug.

    I had a very interesting convo with an X-Porn star about a year ago..

    .. I am convinced the porn industry has a direct effect on the rise and fall in HIV cases.

    ..So many think differently.. icon_sad.gif

    IceBuckets is correct - HIV becomes contagious to others ("active" as you put it) before the body produces the antibodies that the common HIV tests rely upon. And as he says, that can take from 3 to 6 months.

    And during those 3 to 6 months an HIV-infected person is capable of infecting others, before tests like a mouth swab will detect its presence. In fact, contagion can develop within days of initial exposure.

    So taking that "20 minute home test" you recommend before doing a porn scene is only reporting what a person's HIV status was 3 to 6 months ago, NOT their status that day. A person with a negative test result could be fully capable of infecting their unprotected sex partner with HIV.

    And young men who have forgotten the past are going to senselessly die again. Whether it be from HIV, and/or Hep C, antibiotic resistant gonorrhea or syphilis or something "new". And, it will be a degrading, disfiguring, and dignity-robbing death. Mitigated or avoided simply by condom use.

    From: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/statistics/surveillance/incidence/

    CDC ReportAge at Infection
    In 2010, the estimated number of new HIV infections was highest among individuals aged 25-34 (31%, 14,500 [95% CI: 12,500–16,400]), followed by individuals aged 13-24 (26%, 12,200 [95% CI: 10,500–13,800]).

    Transmission Category
    Comparing 2008 to 2010, the estimated number of new HIV infections among MSM increased 12%, from 26,700 (95% CI: 23,400–30,000) in 2008 to 29,800 (95% CI: 26,200–33,500) in 2010. The number of new HIV infections among females with infection attributed to heterosexual contact decreased 18% from 9,800 (95% CI: 8,200–11,400) in 2008 to 8,000 (95% CI: 6,700–9,200) in 2010. In 2010, the majority of new HIV infections was attributed to male-to-male sexual contact (63% overall and 78% among males). Among females, the largest percentage of new HIV infections was attributed to heterosexual contact (84%).

    Exactly.

    Underestimating the effect of media on our way of thinking is like underestimating the effect of physics.

    I think its very dangerous. Even tho they list that the models and actors were tested before. However, I DO love watching hot bareback scenes. I get the joy and they get the risk icon_wink.gif

    Unfortunately it's a profit driven business; bareback videos sell better than safe ones. The porn industry isn't going to cut their profits in order to do the ethically right thing. This is why we have government controls/oversight on businesses.

    I have to be honest, I like watching it, especially the ones from Sean Cody. At the same time, I would not practice it in my personal life simply because you can't tell whether the person you are going to be intimate with has HIV or another STD.

    Some will say watching BB porn is encouraging it and making it worst. Might be, then again, I didn't have to watch it and they still would be making it either way. Its obvious a lot of gay men are watching it that's why they continue to make them. Its just the beauty of seeing that thick unwrapped cock plow that tight hole makes my cock water uncontrollably.

    Not to mention, my jerk offs are even more amazing. I tried watching a video with two really good looking guys having safe sex and to be honest, while the cum shot at the end of the video was great, my cock was limp all 22 minutes.

    It really comes down to it being a fantasy.

    I think Treasure Island Media is twisted though, very unhealthy behavior in their porn videos.
