If you’ve ever asked someone what they think about the people who produce bareback porn, often the word irresponsible will come up. This is because many people consider bareback porn producers to be reckless and selfish, where the health of those involved is not taken into consideration. I have operated bareback blogs since 2008 and a bareback sex resource since 2004, so I have personally experienced the reactions that some people have about bareback sex and bareback porn.

I have found that a good number of the people who consider bareback porn to be unsafe are thinking generally and they haven’t actually taken the time to look at individual studios and their processes. Just recently I learned about someone involved in the gay porn industry who placed all bareback porn producers in the same basket by considering all of them to be ignoring the safety of the performers and the viewers. It’s important to note that bareback sex is considered to be the most riskiest form of sexual intercourse, this is a fact, but what also needs to be taken into consideration is that the level of risk can reduce when particular steps are taken, such as full-panel sexually transmitted infection testing and sero-sorting.

Because bareback sex is a controversial topic, I have written this article to share with you one particular gay porn studio which produces bareback porn that has taken the responsible step of putting together an article about the condom-free content that exists at their gay porn site. There are a number of bareback porn producers that have publicly stated that each of their models is tested for a range of sexually transmitted infections prior to each bareback shoot, but I am going to focus on one particular studio in this article, which is a studio I have greatly admired for a number of years.

The studio that has taken the step to responsibly discuss their bareback content is ChaosMen. Bryan Ockert is the creator and producer of this amazing website and from what I can ascertain, he is a really nice guy too. I have written to him on a couple of occasions and he’s really passionate about his work. Bryan also works extremely hard to produce amazing bareback porn for our enjoyment, so while discussing the importance of sexual health in this article, I also want to compliment Bryan once again on his outstanding site. If you have never been a member of ChaosMen, you are missing out, because the guys featured are sexy and because Bryan is a professional photographer, he has a natural eye for capturing the hottest sex on camera.

What I respect about the page Bryan created relating to the condom-free content is that he has put together an official statement about the bareback content highlighting that it is entertainment and that each of the performers is rigorously tested before each and every shoot. Bryan recommends you use condoms in your personal life, so he’s definitely not anti-condom, he’s making a clear distinction between the entertainment he creates at his website and the reality that exists in our personal lives. It’s important to note that what you watch at ChaosMen is bareback porn that has been created under strict sexual health testing conditions. Because each performer has had their sexual health scrutinized stringently every time they have unprotected sex on camera, this is why you often find cum-swapping at the end of many bareback scenes.

You can appreciate that Bryan is working hard to not only produce an amazing product for our enjoyment, he’s also doing it in the safest manner possible. Please understand that while the most careful practices can be made during the production of bareback porn, risks still exist due to the window-period that is present with current HIV testing technology. Bryan also discusses the more advanced testing methods at his site and I have discussed this in previous articles here myself. ChaosMen use a more accurate testing procedure called HIV DNR/PCR testing, which tests for the actual virus itself and not just antibodies and this testing procedure reduces the exposure window period from several months to 6-20 days. Bryan has stated that he will also be using the test already used in Europe that reduces the window period from 3 to 12 days once it becomes available in the United States.

The window period is what makes bareback sex risky, because a person can be recently infected and if they are tested within the window period and the test gives a false negative result, they assume that they are HIV-negative, but HIV infection can still take place, because even though some tests fail to identify HIV within the window period, HIV is still transmittable during this period of time. Hopefully in the future, HIV tests will have the ability to detect HIV the moment it enters the body, because this will make HIV testing and sero-sorting practices more effective.

Bryan makes another important point about the cost of STI testing, which can add up to $300 for each model, in addition to other expenses including travel, accommodation, performer fees, the cost of production, content delivery and a range of other expenses many don’t take into consideration. This is why it’s important to purchase a membership to support the website rather than downloading pirated free content elsewhere. Piracy costs the adult industry a huge amount of money and some studios go out of business as a result, because they cannot afford to continue producing porn when the costs are higher than the revenue they receive. This means that we suffer as a result, because if studios go out of business, there will be less quality bareback porn for us to watch.

Please take the time to read the article Bryan has put together, because it’s well-written and very resourceful, both in terms of the background he provides about his site and his procedures, plus it includes other information about sexual health and details about where you can get tested. It’s important to remember that the performers have been tested for sexually transmitted infections and perform in the safest environment possible, but you need to distinguish between the entertainment provided by bareback porn and the sexual practices in your own personal life.
