On July 3, 2012, Paul Morris introduced us to the latest recruit to join the ranks of Paul Morris’ army of exclusive men. DJ is a familiar face in gay porn, having previously performed as an Active Duty performer, but after a four year break from working in the porn industry, DJ has made his return to porn by signing an exclusive deal with Treasure Island Media.
The year 2011 marks 30 years of AIDS following its discovery on June 5, 1981 when the first cases of AIDS were reported in the United States in five young gay men from Los Angeles. World AIDS Day began several years later in 1988 and has since been held on December 1 each year around the globe to provide an opportunity for people to show their support to those living with HIV and AIDS and to remember those who have passed away.
I have just finished reading an article at Huffington Post which states that on Friday October 7, 2011, a court in Minneapolis convicted a man of first-degree assault for the transmission of HIV. Now you might be thinking that it’s a criminal offense to intentionally infect another person with HIV in many parts of the world (which it is), but the content of this article is disturbing based on the fact that it has been reported that the infected partner disclosed his HIV status prior to engaging in unprotected sex with the victim, who consented to having unprotected sex with the man, but the victim later changed their mind once they became HIV-positive and they had the man charged.
Producing bareback porn in Africa is risky for both the performers and the producers due to the legal situation regarding gay sex in many African countries along with the high precedence of HIV/AIDS infections in the region. It can therefore be considered a taboo form of pornography, making it unique and perhaps a controversial form of gay porn. This article examines two gay porn sites featuring African men having gay sex with other men, including some bareback scenes.
I am writing this article based on my recent findings from search engine referrals to BradBare.com, because I have noticed an interesting trend on a particular subject and I thought it would be useful to explore this topic in more detail.

Some HIV-negative men who have made the decision to get the “bug” or the “gift” are so sure that they want to “convert” and become HIV-positive that they aim to have unprotected sex with as many HIV-positive men as possible to achieve their goal. To help make this possible, bug chasers may choose to attend parties along with gift givers to help them sero-convert. These parties are referred to as “conversion parties” or “bug parties”, because the party participants attend with the intention of sero-converting men from having an HIV-negative status to an HIV-positive status.
The words “bug chaser” and “gift giver” might appear to innocently describe pursuing insects or offering presents, but they actually have a more serious meaning when associated with sex. Bug chasing and gift giving are the words used to describe the sexual behaviors of some barebackers, but it’s important to highlight that not all barebackers are bug chasers or gift givers. Another important consideration is that bug chasing and gift giving can be both fantasy or reality based, meaning that the actual number of participants may be less than what is perceived.
There are a number of reasons why gay, bisexual and even straight men may choose to have unprotected anal sex with other men. This article will explore this topic in further detail, but the reason why each person engages in bareback sex will likely be different because of personal choices and situations. The term applied to men who have unprotected anal sex with men is referred to as “barebacking”, which according to Wikipedia is a slang term to describe acts of unprotected sex (sexual penetration without the use of a condom), which is an analogy to riding a horse without a saddle.
According to an article by XBIZ, Treasure Island Media has been issued with three citations by Cal/OSHA totaling $24,470 in penalties for what is believed to be possible safety violations by the bareback porn studio. The studio is appealing these citations according to the report.
