When Bareback Porn Crosses A Line & Becomes Socially Irresponsible

On the most basic level, I should be thrilled about a new scene between Mike Dozer and Brad Kalvo. They’re both huge, hairy muscle bears with great smiles and insatiable sexual appetites. Physically, this is a match made in gay porn heaven! It’s the type of pairing that should make both my dick and my butthole happy, as I fluctuate between wanting to finger-bang myself and wanting to selfishly stroke myself to completion.

There’s just one teensy-weensy problem.

Nope! It’s not that the scene’s bareback. Both Mike and Brad are grown men who can have sex however they want. Contrary to popular belief, I am not against bareback porn. I’ve blown my load to hundreds of bareback scenes over the year, even though I’ve continued to practice safer sex in my Manhunt hook-ups. I will, however, insist until the day I die that the absence of a condom doesn’t necessarily make a scene hotter (for me). Chemistry and enthusiasm are so much more important. I want to see performers enjoying the sex they’re having onscreen.

So what’s the big fucking issue? These two seem to be having a field day with one another! Who cares if they pause in the middle of fucking to roll off the condom that’s “suffocating” Brad’s dick? Who cares if one promo shot features them staring at a rubber with the utmost disdain? Who cares if, on the set of Mike’s upcoming bareback scene with Charlie Harding, he was spotted wearing a gigantic grin and a tank top that flippantly stated “Condoms are for pussies”?

You can call me uptight, but I care, and I care a lot.

Shaming condom users is nothing new in the gay porn industry. Treasure Island Media and similar “raw” studios have embedded this attitude into their brand, and while it might be a knee-jerk reaction to safer sex proponents who chastise and vilify anyone who has bareback sex, it’s still massively irresponsible in a time where condom usage among young people is on a drastic decline.

Before you go jumping down my throat, I’m not saying that bareback porn alone is responsible for rising HIV rates and STI outbreaks. I don’t believe that some college sophomore’s going to watch a Sean Cody scene, forget everything he may or may not have learned in his sex ed, and go get gangbanged bareback by a group of strangers.

However, I do believe that if we continue to allow messages like “condoms are for pussies” and no, I want you guys raw to permeate mainstream erotic media outside of the extreme niche “bareback” market, we’re going to see a shift toward productions that glamorize risky behavior without taking into account the potential consequences or, at the very least, drawing attention to preventative measures such as serosorting or PrEP.

I firmly believe that nobody should be made to feel ashamed about the way they want to have sex, provided they’re communicating with their partners and making informed decisions that don’t hurt themselves or others. Shunning the use of condoms is not okay in my book. I would urge Mike Dozer, and anyone else who does this, that it’s time for a “policy change“.

UPDATE: Unlike yours truly, Joe Spunked did some actual reporting to discover that the t-shirt is an inside joke between Charlie Harding and his real-life partner Scotty Rage. This still doesn’t change my feelings about the flippant attitude toward condoms portrayed in this scene between Dozer and Kalvo. Yes, I fully understand the perspective that “porn is fantasy” and, as Harding puts it on his own blog, not necessarily a “tool for social activism”… But whether you agree with me or not, it’s still irresponsible to release a scene that actively depicts condom usage as “uncool” or “inconvenient”.
