    Hello everyone. How are you doing? I hope you're doing very well.

    Very seldomly I watch adult films (all-male only, not the straight or bisexual ones), and what's so sad nowadays is most male porn stars engaging in raw and unprotected sex on film (it's not a shock or a surprise to me at all though). It seems they don't care about their own health or their scene partner's health at all (I try very hard not to criticize male porn stars who would do barebacking because it's their choice, but I personally feel that they're very half-assed and have no brains when it comes to barebacking films). Some of my favorite studios that promote safer sex including Raging Stallion Studios, Channel 1 Releasing, and Titan Media just to name a few (I also have a few titles from these studios as well and they're great! Even though Michael Brandon is no longer with Raging Stallion Studios, he's still my favorite porn star, and he's very friendly and down to earth in person. Him and "Monster" are a perfect fit lol).

    The studios that specialize in barebacking are Spunk Video, SX Video, Hot Desert Knights, Treasure Island Media (which porn star, Brad McGuire, whom I lost respect for, made movies for), Bare Films, Satyr Films, Cre8tive Juices (I used to like Sean Storm, the owner and operator of Cre8tive Juices, in the other movies he's done for other studios, but to be brutally honest, I lost all respect for him after deciding to bareback permanently), Flava Works, Raw Films, and Skin2Skin Films just to name a few (their may be a few others I forgot). To me personally, these studios are promoting dangerous and unsafe sexual practices (including cum-eating, ejaculation inside someone's butt, etc.), and I'm strongly against barebacking. Tober Brandt, who is known from the movies he made with Titan Media, was one of my favorite adult film stars, but he also decided to resort to barebacking, so I lost total respect for him, but as I stated previously, it's his decision to do so. It's very ironic that some of them asserted in interviews that they would never resort to barebacking in films, yet, there they are doing it anyway. Even if I were an adult film star, I would love to work for the big companies, like Raging Stallion Studios, Titan Media, Channel 1 Releasing, and Blatino Productions/Chocolate Cream Studios, because these are the studios that don't promote barebacking at all.

    In addition, barebacking also occurs in long-term & committed relationships, This includes 1 unsafe sexual practice - fluid bonding (which refers to unprotected sex in long-term relationships) and can be either monogamous or polyfidelitous (which is a form of polyamorous group marriage wherein all members consider each other to be primary partners and agree to be sexual only with other members of this group). Me and my deceased ex-boyfriend, Steve, never believed in barebacking at all, and we always used protection at all times when it comes to penetration. I always get tested regularly and always come out with a clean bill of health (my health is extremely important). When it comes to barebacking, this is how the generation of HIV/AIDS starts (people also say, "I've barebacked for a long time and I don't have HIV/AIDS." They say that now, but what happens to their health when it starts to deteriorate in, let's say, 10 years from now, as a result of unsafe and raw sex?).

    Here's a 2-part question I have to ask all of you:

    1st Question - If a studio offered you the opportunity to star in an all-male adult film that involves barebacking throught the entire movie, would you accept it?

    1. Yes
    2. HELL NO!!!
    3. Maybe
    4. It depends.

    2nd Question - If your partner (past or present) disclosed to you that he has a history of sex partners and just prefers to have unprotected sex or other unsafe sex practices in relationships, what would your reaction be?:

    1. Sounds great, because I prefer condomless sex as well.
    2. I'll have to think about it.
    3. Since you prefer to bareback, I don't want to be in a relationship with you at all.



    I will tell you my answers for the questions. For the 1st question, my answer is 2, because I'm a strong advocate and I support safe sex. For the 2nd question, my answer is 3, because once a person has revealed that he has a history of barebacking in relationships, that's a red flag right there. I know a lot of you will have split answers on these questions, but for those of you who engage in barebacking (and I know there are a lot of you on here who prefer to do so, but don't want to admit it), all I can say to you is to get tested and please have your partner tested too. I know I'll end up generating a lot of heat and anger on this question, but it's okay. I look forward to all of your answers. Take excellent care.

    With friendship always, Edwin Williams - Chicago, IL

    P.S. Please note that I'm no better than anyone else in this group and I'm not perfect at all, but I possess common sense when it comes to safe sex practices.

    Ok. Let me answer the questions first:
    1st Question - If a studio offered you the opportunity to star in an all-male adult film that involves barebacking throught the entire movie, would you accept it?

    1. Yes
    2. HELL NO!!!
    3. Maybe
    4. It depends.

    2nd Question - If your partner (past or present) disclosed to you that he has a history of sex partners and just prefers to have unprotected sex or other unsafe sex practices in relationships, what would your reaction be?:

    1. Sounds great, because I prefer condomless sex as well.
    2. I'll have to think about it.
    3. Since you prefer to bareback, I don't want to be in a relationship with you at all.

    I have no interest in being a porn start now or ever.However, while they do have a responsibility to the community to whom they market, they are for profit businesses and there is a market for this genre. I've been a fan of Raging Stallion for a long time and I have noticed duting their expansion that they have increased their fetish stable along with their barebacking stable (Incidently, MonsterBang films is a part of Raging Stallion. Micheal Brandon didn't leave, just not performing for the most part anymore). If the people didn't want it, there wouldn't be a market. And if there wasn't a market, they wouldn't make and sell the movies. Cliche' as it is, it is just that. Fortunately, the gay porn industry makes their stables show proof of testing and status on a pretty regular basis. As to the message they are sending, I can't find fault with them. Because at the end of the day, it is about free will and individual choice, for the stars and the people that buy them. Education is still the best way to arm ourselves.

    As to the 2nd question, by the way the question is worded, I will take it that I should answer as though I am in a relationship and am just finding out. Well, knowing me, I would have already insisted we be tested together before any barebacking happened in our relationship which would be monogomous. After hearing his confession and taking time to process it, we would have to figure out if the relationship would survive his past. I don't see why it wouldn't since that was his sexual PAST. I am a huge advocate for safer sex, but I am not going to lie and say that I still don't romanticize sex to the point where I would want condomless sex with my partner. Even if we were just starting out and hadn't yet progressed beyond dating, I probably wouldn't be sleeping with him anyway because of my personal rule about being tested. So while such information would cause me to pause for a bit, I would not dismiss a potential relationship because of barebacking history.

    For questionr 1 : 2, hell no !!!
    For number two :
    I am in a monogamous live together LTR, we enjoy sex without condom, and I fell quite good about it.
    Now....
    It's the first time I bareback with a guy. We did meet, date, and spend one year together. With condoms.
    Then we got tested again (both knew our status already, but better safe than sorry), and never used a condom since.
    We are monogamous (yet not jealous), not a moral thing, just our way to be, as if living with the right guy reduced dramaticly the desire to have sex with other guys.
    As nobody is perfect, and even honest guys can sometime find themselve in unexpected opportunity (flesh is weak), the question is not about trusting your other half to never cheat on you, but to trust him to tell you if he did.
    I trust my partner to do that... on my life actullay ;-)
    We decided that if anything happen, even as small as being jacked off by somone else, we would tell the other, immediatly, to decide if we need to go back on condom and wait for test result.
    I also made him sweare that if he cheated on me, I wanted the video of the event... find him so sexy to look at ;-)

    Like you, and being of the generation which lost a lot of friend, I'm upset at the bareback comeback in the young generation, because if you have mutiples partners, even if they know their status, they just know it as good as the last time they got tested. Not enough to be safe. And tritherapies are not a cure.

    But I don't understand your red flag on number 3. There is probability that our system could get us killed exist, but I think it's far smaller, in our case, that the risk of a broken condom, or of a car accident.

    Now, I would not advice to decide to be monogamous in order to be able to bareback. Bad idea; because if monogamy bore you, sooner or later, you will fail.
    But if you have no desire to look outside, that your partner feel the same, and that your communication is good (no affraid to hurt your partner confessing something), it sound rather safe sex to me.

    ok to answer the questions..
    do porn Hmm ive thougth about it. In fact I know two guys who activiely does it.. They get paid handsomely well too. They go through a thorough screening first. Making sure that everyone is tested before any movie is filmed (or at least thats what theyve told me)
    do they trust it... obviously they keep going back for more
    are they healthy?
    (thats a trick question.... because when we look at it no one is 100 percent healthy...like everyone has some sort of imbalance physically, mentally and healthwise... so yea ...and those who spend their lives stressing on one particular prevention is only developing another possibility..)

    second question.
    I have dated actually my first relationship consisted of non-condom uses... but we did routine tests and checkups.. he was a cop and i was in a industry that required these things... so therefore we required it in our relationship.. again it falls back on trust... true with wearing condoms people can cheat same as with not wearing them.. do you always know whats going on in your bedroom when you're not sleeping hell no.. so why stress the shit... just live life.. mindfully but not stressfully.
    If a guy approached me now with 'barebacking' i don't do random hookups barebacking...not my style.. safe sex is always first.. but if this is going to be a monogamous deal then a deeper conversation would be held..
    its back at trust.

    As far as the role models of porn... C'mon now really...Porn is a source of ENTerTAINMENT... for me its an illusion or more a study guide on shit i just might do if i had the right sexual partner (just found one.. and he is beautiful inside and out...lololol)
    For someone who takes PornSTARS so seriously that when they bareback they feel that they are giving a wrong impression or idea.. people bareBACK...people have sex...people take risks...
    when you wake up and go out of your house and get in your car on a highway you take a risk
    when you board a plane you take a risk
    ...
    we will all die..eventually so i do my best to be careful but not overthink it...
    i do the gym regularly i get my tests yearly...ive been negative since jan 14 10...and im not a saint....
    but i know my time will come do i want it to come becos of hiv or aids.. no, but if you could pick how you die.... then we would be GOD......

    I digress...
    saying just live, love, do
    and eventually we evolve....

    Hmm there is a large generalization in this thread about barebacking porn.

    Does barebacking porn exist? Yes.

    However, major studios use lighting techniques, shot angles, and editing to make it look like barebacking. No MAJOR studio would ever want to promote barebacking these days. Fleshbot had an article on it 2 years ago.

    As for the personal question, I think barebacking is a personal choice left for partners who trust each other and know each's status. It is at that point that the discussion can come up. Before that, it really just becomes a game of Russian Roulette.

    Edwin,
    How many of those studios that promote condom use still show unprotected oral-anal sex?
    I think it's a big hypocrisy to think 'safe sex' is being promoted in porn by condom use when not all forms of sex are shown using protection when they could. There are certain parasites found more commonly in gay men and one of them in particular goes undetected in most people while still making the person contagious. Worse yet, for the carrier without symptoms, the infection can turn invasive at some point in the future. Most gay guys don't even know this it seems like :

    I will freely admit that my partner and I engage in bareback sex.

    Not at first though. We used condoms at first. We discussed BB and decided the time was right. So we both got tested together.

    We got the all-clear.

    We're monogamous, so I see no problem. Maybe it's just something in my mind, but I just love the feeling of being so intimately close to him.

    That wasn't one of your choices.

    1) I don't watch gay porn, so can't comment on the actual movies. However, it's likely the guys are either getting tested regularly (but still taking a huge risk), or perhaps they're positive and believe they no longer need condoms (which isn't true, since they do need to be concerned about catching a different strain... aka Superinfection). My personal answer would of course be NO.

    2) With regard to condomless sex in a committed relationship, if both partners test negative and remain monogamous, then that's a no-risk situation for HIV. Naturally, you can choose to continue with condoms forever. It has to do with the level of trust and risk you're willing to assume. Personally, I'd want to stay with condoms, but that's just me.

    I watch lots of porn. I mean TONS!
    The barebacking stuff is usually preformed by overweight, flabby, tattooed-up, wasted, hairy old men- or cocaine-snorting super twinks.....or steroid addicts (Tyler Saint.) I'm sure the men that are barebacking in these films are actually HIV+: so they feel that they don't have play safe because the already "have it."

    What bothers me the most about porn is the fact that some of these companies continue to work with HIV+ men and pair them up with HIV- guys. Even with protection there is still a greater risk of catching it.

    Question 1: No because I have very low self-esteem and I will end up crying in the shower next to the douche. And then I'll have a panic attack, when start shouting my name, which will then be followed by some disgorging. (And all of this is only for the safe/sex)

    Question 2: I've never had sex so I would not know the difference between the two. Although penetration looks hot in porn.... I feel like I'm more of a sword-fighter.

    *I'll add/edit later.

    I'm falling in with the wrong crowd- damn you ambien! Hazy.

    Bareback porn is definitely growing - as evidenced by the growing number of smaller porn studios that are filming/distributing, etc. Look up treasure island media and you'll find movies like Dawson's 50 load weekend.... he takes 50 loads from nasty tweaked out guys... its just gross/dangerous/trashy.... those treasure island movies are readily available on major porn websites. Its a business and the industry people will go wherever the money is.

    Erik, this is one of the most intelligent and educated responses I've ever read. Thank you so much!!! I knew that Michael Brandon retired from the industry, but his recent drug abuse affected his life again (now he's clean and sober again the 2nd time around). He's currently on house arrest, but it's better than going back to prison again. I've always been a huge fan of Raging Stallion, and I still love the MonsterBang series as well (I've recently purchased all 3 sequels of Grunts and it's one of the best movies I've ever seen, along with To The Last Man, and the recent release of Focus/Refocus). The recession period was tough for them due to tons of job layoffs, but they survived it. I only get their movies when they're on sale (I don't buy them all of the time though).

    My understanding is that many porn stars who do not use protection in their films are tested with the PCR tests that are far more accurate and far more expensive than the standard ELISA tests you take in a clinic or doctor's office. This does not of course eliminate all risk, but neither does any form of protection. It's certainly a reasonable way of managing the risk.

    http://www.webmd.com/hiv-aids/human-immunodeficiency-virus-hiv-test

    "Polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This test finds either the RNA of the HIV virus or the HIV DNA in white blood cells infected with the virus. PCR testing is not done as frequently as antibody testing because it requires technical skill and expensive equipment. This test may be done in the days or weeks after exposure to the virus. Genetic material may be found even if other tests are negative for the virus. The PCR test is very useful to find a very recent infection, determine if an HIV infection is present when antibody test results were uncertain, and screen blood or organs for HIV before donation."

    Thanks Edwin. Appreciated. I wonder if the Focus/Refocus series (the scene with Damien Crosse and all the actors) got you to thinking about this. The promo pic with his face covered is pretty nasty looking.

    For the first question
    1) HELL NO - but then again I will never do porn, safe/unsafe doesn't matter
    2) Will go bareback only if the other person is the one I want to spend my lifetime with and we both get tested at the same time.

    O don't get me wrong, I admit BB porn is out there and people will like it as long it is it stigmatized.

    Concerning the infatuation and taboo-ness of BB, Tim Dean wrote a book.

    That being said, it is sold by major studios you are right, but most major studios use the editing technique which to be honest is just as bad because the illusion still promotes BB in NSA sex.

    I love BB porn if the guys are hot. Wouldn't do BB porn myself, but I have better ways of spending my time than being judgmental about what other adults decide to do, and I am happy to watch.

    In a relationship, absolutely.

    1. maybe. And even though I say I'm never going to do porn I may have to one day if I need to feed myself and have somewhere to sleep.

    2. I'll have to think about it. I'll use safer sex with my partner until we both get to the point in our relationship that we would want to have bareback sex. And we both have to get tested and wait a month and get tested again




    And Porn Stars get checked for stuff before they do bareback and even sex with condoms. And just like anything else they're entertainers it's not real.

    1. No. I have no desire to star in porn. BB or otherwise. While I enjoy watching it, I don't feel I could actually do it.

    2. My reaction was "I'll have to think about it." And I did. And then we both got tested, six months after our last sexual encounters with other people. And we were both negative. So since then, we have engaged in bareback sex.

    Your generalizations seem painted in pretty broad strokes and with quite a bit of contradiction.

    I'm not so sure your viewing of porn is "seldom"... you seem to know an awful lot about the studios and performers. Why hide it, so what if you do? Does it really matter? I can pretty much promise you it doesn't matter to 99.9% of the people on this site.

    I don't think your as bipartisan as you extol, there are a notable amount of judgments which you qualify as "common sense". And if you think it's stupid and reprehensible you should just come out and say it instead of ineffectively trying to hide behind disingenuous diplomacy.

    I would respect your opinion (which no matter how you share it, you're entitled to) much more if you owned your opinions instead of trying to dress them up as the Duke of York.

    ErikTaurean saidOk. Let me answer the questions first:
    1st Question - If a studio offered you the opportunity to star in an all-male adult film that involves barebacking throught the entire movie, would you accept it?

    1. Yes
    2. HELL NO!!!
    3. Maybe
    4. It depends.

    2nd Question - If your partner (past or present) disclosed to you that he has a history of sex partners and just prefers to have unprotected sex or other unsafe sex practices in relationships, what would your reaction be?:

    1. Sounds great, because I prefer condomless sex as well.
    2. I'll have to think about it.
    3. Since you prefer to bareback, I don't want to be in a relationship with you at all.

    I have no interest in being a porn start now or ever.However, while they do have a responsibility to the community to whom they market, they are for profit businesses and there is a market for this genre. I've been a fan of Raging Stallion for a long time and I have noticed duting their expansion that they have increased their fetish stable along with their barebacking stable (Incidently, MonsterBang films is a part of Raging Stallion. Micheal Brandon didn't leave, just not performing for the most part anymore). If the people didn't want it, there wouldn't be a market. And if there wasn't a market, they wouldn't make and sell the movies. Cliche' as it is, it is just that. Fortunately, the gay porn industry makes their stables show proof of testing and status on a pretty regular basis. As to the message they are sending, I can't find fault with them. Because at the end of the day, it is about free will and individual choice, for the stars and the people that buy them. Education is still the best way to arm ourselves.

    As to the 2nd question, by the way the question is worded, I will take it that I should answer as though I am in a relationship and am just finding out. Well, knowing me, I would have already insisted we be tested together before any barebacking happened in our relationship which would be monogomous. After hearing his confession and taking time to process it, we would have to figure out if the relationship would survive his past. I don't see why it wouldn't since that was his sexual PAST. I am a huge advocate for safer sex, but I am not going to lie and say that I still don't romanticize sex to the point where I would want condomless sex with my partner. Even if we were just starting out and hadn't yet progressed beyond dating, I probably wouldn't be sleeping with him anyway because of my personal rule about being tested. So while such information would cause me to pause for a bit, I would not dismiss a potential relationship because of barebacking history.


    Erik, this is one of the most intelligent and educated responses I've ever read. Thank you so much!!! I knew that Michael Brandon retired from the industry, but his recent drug abuse affected his life again (now he's clean and sober again the 2nd time around). He's currently on house arrest, but it's better than going back to prison again. I've always been a huge fan of Raging Stallion, and I still love the MonsterBang series as well (I've recently purchased all 3 sequels of Grunts and it's one of the best movies I've ever seen, along with To The Last Man, and the recent release of Focus/Refocus). The recession period was tough for them due to tons of job layoffs, but they survived it. I only get their movies when they're on sale (I don't buy them all of the time though).


    Thanks Edwin. Appreciated. I wonder if the Focus/Refocus series (the scene with Damien Crosse and all the actors) got you to thinking about this. The promo pic with his face covered is pretty nasty looking.


    It was the trailer that got my attention, and Damien Crosse is one of the most talented and down to earth individuals I've ever met (he was here in Chicago 2 weeks ago, along with his real-life husband, porn star Francesco D'Macho, and we had a great time. And no, we didn't have sex at all lol). You can actually get Focus and Refocus either separately or as a set (each of the movies has 2 discs. The 2nd discs has the extras and bonus features, which is what I've always loved about Raging Stallion). Their movies are getting better and better every year (you should also check out Steve Cruz, another one of the best adult film entertainers, and his performances in the Raging Stallion movies are energetic. You can also visit his website www.stevecruzxxx.com. He loves getting fan mail and he will respond to them too).

    Anyone else think that this just sounds like a giant Public Service Announcement?
