Really interesting piece on the Queerty website. It focuses on the continued rejection of condoms by many gay men, and bareback behaviour. The opening paragraphs are logical and a breath of fresh air but the piece then turns to the law as a solution and here it becomes a terrible muddle. Queerty offers the solution of studios creating legal contractual duties upon performers for when their off-set preventing them from engaging in bareback sex. This way studios keep their performers ‘safe’. Please! If the first part of the article is true (and I think it is), then men bareback because they like it. They are still going to bareback and such contractual commitments are a nonsense, replacing hypocrisy with cynicism. It also strikes me as a legal nightmare for studios and their lawyers.

Interestingly, Treasure Island Media is also targeted a ‘bad boy’ whilst recently seroconverted porn performer, Mason Wyler’s new foray into bareback porn with Dark Alley Media seems acceptable. In a piece about hypocrisy, this seems, well, hypocritical.
