This article might not have much to do with bareback porn or bareback sex, but when I read about a new type of condom being developed, I figured that some safer sex porn studios might want to use such a condom to make their videos appear bareback. An inventor based in southern California has designed a revolutionary condom called Galactic Cap that fits on the glans of the penis, leaving the coronal ridge and shaft exposed to help men enjoy more pleasure while trying to practice safer sex.

It’s important to point out that this invention is still in its early stages of development and needs to pass FDA approval before it can be introduced into the market for consumers to use. At the moment the product is seeking investors so it can be tested and a case put forward to the FDA to seek approval for use as a sexual health device. I’m sure this invention will generate loads of interest and discussion, since it’s such a dramatic change to the regular condom design.

The Galactic Cap consists of two parts, a base which sticks to the glans of the penis through a u-shaped polyurethane adhesive film and a cap which sticks to the base. The adhesive base can be applied to the penis several days before sex and the adhesive film still allows guys to shower, urinate and enjoy normal bodily functions while attached. When a guy intends to have sex, he simply attaches the cap, with a reservoir that’s reported to be stronger than a regular condom to catch the semen at the time of ejaculation.

We may see interest from the condom studios who will want to make their scenes appear bareback by using such a product as the Galactic Cap to satisfy the demand from viewers who enjoy watching bareback porn. This type of condom may help to make scenes appear bareback, but the scenes won’t be bareback because the guys using these devices will still be wearing a condom and this device will prevent guys from breeding their loads inside other guys. This device could potentially be a explored by studios if the product is approved for use, but I believe that it’s important for studios to ensure they are upfront about the use of such a device so they don’t mislead viewers who think they are actually watching bareback porn.

The Galactic Cap appears to focus on some key areas, such as preventing pregnancy, which obviously is not an issue for men having sex with men and for preventing the exchange of bodily fluids, which is aimed at reducing the transmission of HIV. If this product is approved, users will need to be aware it will not stop the spread of sexually transmitted infections that can spread through skin-on-skin contact, such as genital herpes. I also wonder about the level of sensation by using this device, because most of the head of the penis is still covered by the adhesive film base and the cap, which may feel thicker than a standard condom, plus the feeling of the film may impede on the sensation. I also wonder how easily the adhesive film can be removed from the glans of the penis comfortably and without causing irritation or damage to the skin.

Once the trials commence, more information relating to the pros and cons can be revealed. I might try the device to see how it feels for research purposes, but I wouldn’t plan on using this device on a regular basis, as breeding is something I enjoy during bareback sex. This device may be useful to guys who want to maximize their pleasure whilst trying to have safer sex, so there might be a use for this type of condom, but those using it need to know that it will not protect from every sexually transmitted infection. It will be interesting to follow the progress of this development and if this condom does receive approval, how well it’s received. I encourage your thoughts on the Galactic Cap condom below to see what you think.

“Adhesive film base?” So you’re taping/gluing a rubber to the head of your penis? How do you get it off?

[Of course, with the lack of any kind of testing, admitted by the spokesman in the video linked, I’d be a little reluctant to promote it as a HIV/STI preventative of any kind.]

Hey mecocklover, That’s a very good question regarding the condom base removal process. The video explains how to stick it on, but there’s no mention about how to get it off. You have to wonder about how easy it would be, considering they are saying how the base won’t wash off in the shower and you can wear the base for days. The inventor is trying to raise funds at the moment to test the product and present a case to the FDA for approval. It will be interesting to see how they and with their product trials, the approval process and consumer interest.

Interesting concept but not sure how effective it would be regarding sensation. I remember years ago Trojan made a condom that has some internal adhesive. As your rolled it down it adhere to your penis to keep it securely on. It had a special thing attached to keep it from sticking to itself and you removed it once it was rolled down. Regardless you can’t improve on bareback.

Hey T, It sure is an interesting product that’s in the development phase right now and I thought it would be a great idea to discuss this invention here and capture everyone’s thoughts. I was not aware of the Trojan condom that featured an internal adhesive. These kinds of devices do seem to be overly complicated and it’s very true that you cannot improve on the sensation of bareback, because barebacking provides the ultimate sensation to a sexual experience.

Hello-

fake bareback porn is fake bareback whether they use this new device or digitally erase the condom in post production. any such videos are an insult to devotees of bareback porn and should be outlawed.

Hey Joseph, I totally agree with your views regarding fake bareback porn. Whether it’s studios pretending to make scenes look bareback, using devices like this or digitally erasing the condom in post production, there’s no substitute for real bareback sex. I find it interesting that some studios are trying to make their porn appear bareback, without bareback sex. I can see reasons why studios might want to produce porn that looks bareback, but if it’s not really bareback, then they should make this clear so viewers know what to expect rather than being misled about what it appears to be.

I know there are a few people out there that are still clutching to the old safe sex message. I personally don’t believe condoms have a place in gay sex whether it be vids or real life. Just saying 🙂

Hey Jordan, Some guys are passionate about condoms and I’m okay if that’s what they prefer to use, just as long as they respect my preference for barebacking. I thought it would be interesting to include this new type of condom here, because it was different and immediately I thought about the condom studios likely showing an interest in using this type of condom if it’s approved to help make their scenes appear bareback. When it comes to condoms, they aren’t even FDA approved for anal sex, with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration including this statement on their website about condoms and anal sex: “Condoms may be more likely to break during anal intercourse than during other types of sex because of the greater amount of friction and other stresses involved.” Source: http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/byaudience/forpatientadvocates/hivandaidsactivities/ucm126372.htm

Hello Again-

bareback sex means ***NO CONDOMS***

Brad Berrigan June 3, 2014 at 3:32 pm Reply

Hey Joseph, Bareback sex sure does mean no condoms, but if some condom of the studios think they can get away with making their scenes appear bareback by using an invention like the Galactic Cap, then they’ll probably want to give it a try (that’s if it receives FDA approval of course).

Hello Again-

i can’t stand dvds that have bareback in the title but aren’t which is the definition of false advertising. case in point. several months after the Oscar winning film Brokeback Mountain was released i bought a dvd titled Bareback Mountain. the cover even copied the side by side profiles used in the poster for the film. but case what? obviously the company who released the dvd didn’t understand what bareback means since two of the dvd’s four scenes used condoms. i found the address of the dvd company wrote a letter stating why i was returning the dvd and got a refund check in the mail.

Hey Joseph, I completely agree with you on this topic. If a studio releases a DVD that states “bareback” or “barebacking” in the title, then the video should be 100% bareback. Of course if a video does not include this wording in the title but states that it does contain some bareback scenes, then this is different. I would have returned Bareback Mountain to the DVD company myself had the same thing happened to me, because you would assume based on the name of the DVD that the video is all about barebacking.
