The issue of barebacking, whether it be bareback sex or bareback porn can be controversial because of the health implications which can be associated with unprotected anal sex. Before the term “bareback” was coined, unprotected sex was simply sex and the use of condoms before the AIDS era was believed to be limited among homosexual men, because condoms were mainly used by heterosexuals for birth control purposes. Condoms were previously used and are still promoted today for use as a birth control device and to assist with reducing the spread of sexually transmitted infections. Because men engaging in anal sex do not need to worry about the possibility of pregnancy, the main reason men having anal sex would consider using condoms would be to help reduce the spread of sexually transmitted infections.

The AIDS epidemic in the 1980’s which affected gay and bisexual men made a massive impact on sexual behavior and resulted in changes to sexual habits, such as men abstaining from sex for a period of time, or taking precautions such as using condoms. The freedom of unprotected sex without worry came to an end around this time. Some men may have continued having unprotected sex with other men during this period, but the level of unprotected sex at the time reportedly declined. For those who have experienced watching friends and loved ones suffer from the effects of HIV are likely to consider the health consequences of barebacking seriously because of what they have witnessed or experienced.

During the emergence of bareback porn in the early 1990’s at a time when many people were still reeling over what had happened in the 1980’s, controversy erupted when Hot Desert Knights Productions released their first bareback presentation Bareback Buddies. Many people could not understand at the time why a video production company would promote a video which did not consider protecting their models by using condoms during sex scenes. It was reported that Jackson Price, the then director of casting for HDK was quoted as saying to J. C. Adams of “The Adams Report: The GayVN Awards Show Highlights” in 2002 (this article is no longer available online) that “we assume everyone is HIV positive”, but as reported by The Sword on February 7, 2008 Hot Desert Knights Productions now test their models for HIV.

Since the 1980’s and 1990’s, more is now understood about barebacking and sexual health, so people may now have differing views towards unprotected sex. Some people may have the view that unprotected sex is destructive and bareback porn should not be produced because it could potentially lead to an increase in the spread of sexually transmitted infections. Other people may have the view that people can make up their own minds about whether they engage in unprotected sex by making an informed decision and weighing up all of the facts beforehand. What will always be the case is that each of us will hold our own personal beliefs about bareback sex and bareback porn, but this does not mean that those who disagree with us are wrong, because there will likely be sound arguments for and against barebacking.

What is important to consider about barebacking is that unprotected sex is regarded by medical professionals as being the riskiest form of sexual intercourse due to the possibility of spreading sexually transmitted infections, including Human Immunodeficiency Virus, more commonly referred to as HIV and believed to be the cause of AIDS; the abbreviation for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. Once a person is infected with HIV, they will continue to carry the virus for life because there is no cure at this time and it only takes one unprotected sexual encounter for a person to become infected with the virus. While barebacking can be risky, the level of risk varies based on a number of factors including, but not limited to the number of sexual partners, the health status of sexual partners, right down to whether you or your sexual partner have any cuts or abrasions which could expose HIV to the bloodstream.

Because each of us are at different ages in our lives and because we may live in different countries, have had different experiences or been exposed to different situations in our lives, we may think about things a little differently. Some older men who may have known people who died from HIV/AIDS during the epidemic may avoid having unprotected sex or sexual intercourse completely. Younger guys may not have had exposure to the effects of what HIV can do to a person or the complications of medications and may simply focus on how hot bareback porn is to watch or how good it feels for real. Even though we all come from different backgrounds and experiences, what is important is that we all have the facts about barebacking and what some of the potential outcomes are before we actually decide to engage in an unprotected sexual experience for the first time.

You might be thinking that if barebacking is risky, why do people do it. There is no simple answer, because barebacking is such a complex issue, but there are some reasons which can be considered. The first is the type of sexual partner can make a difference to the level of risk. Those in a monogamous relationship are considered to have a lower level of risk than someone who has anonymous unprotected sexual encounters. Also, the issue of serosorting and the discussion of sexually transmitted infections can play an important role in trying to stay HIV negative or reduce the likelihood of spreading other sexually transmitted infections. Another consideration is that unprotected sex is the natural process of life which leads to the creation of life. Unfortunately, unprotected sex when combined with sexually transmitted infections can lead to the destruction of life.

When it comes to bareback porn, some guys watch it to fulfill their fantasies, perhaps because they do not wish to put themselves at risk or they may use pornography to enhance their sexual experiences. It is important to add that a number of studios producing bareback porn test their models for sexually transmitted infections and use the practice of serosorting to reduce the likelihood of a sexually transmitted infection taking place. Because bareback scenes can take place in a more controlled environment than in real-life situations, it is possible that the risk to models is lowered and those watching bareback porn need to consider this before barebacking themselves. Many studios producing bareback porn also include health warnings about the risks associated with barebacking. Viewers of bareback porn are advised to take note of the warnings and make an informed decision about their potential sexual partner before having bareback sex.

This article has touched upon a number of subjects relating to the level of risk associated with barebacking and thoughts about how people may be influenced by what they see in bareback porn videos. Barebacking is a very complicated subject and there are a number of books available on this topic for anyone interested in learning more about barebacking, including studies and statistics. Because this article only offers a brief consideration about barebacking and the implications of unprotected sex, the most important thing to take from this article is the fact that it only takes one time to become infected with a sexually transmitted infection. It is essential to consider the risks about barebacking before deciding whether or not it is appropriate and whether or not you are prepared to deal with the consequences of barebacking, because even the best precautions are not a foolproof way of avoiding risk.
