Queerty Tackles Bareback Sex and Bareback Porn

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.
Read the full piece here. You can also read my previous thought on the bareback porn industry here.
