I have been curious why a condom scene was featured in the DVD Bareboned Twinks from Cobra Video for a while now and I figured this is the perfect place to help with my curiosity and perhaps that of others too. The video I want to discuss was removed from sale in its original form, due to the unfortunate situation of one of the scenes including a model who was underage at the time of filming. The edited video can be viewed using Video On Demand with the underage scene removed, making the linked video theater’s version legal to watch, with modified DVD cover art accompanying it.
Bareboned Twinks was officially released in the United States on August 4, 2004 according to the Internet Movie Database, as a pornographic DVD containing five scenes, featuring live sound and no music, with a running time of 120 minutes. Four of the scenes featured bareback sex and one scene involved the use of condoms. This is where my question lies, but we’ll get to that shortly. Bareboned Twinks was originally marketed as a bareback release as follows:
For our fourth anniversary we go back to basics and show the fans what made Cobra famous. Join our most famous recent Cobraboyz, Cayden, Bailey, Jaimie, Shaun, Lance, Corey and new comers, Dustin, Mark and our str8boy Trevor as they take you through a no frills ride just like the Cobraboyz series A Boys Raw Urges for naughty fun. See the boyz take it in the mouth and have two of the boyz push the loads back out their asses to culminate Cobra’s 17th production. – Cobra Video.
Bareboned Twinks was originally released with the following scenes:
- Scene 1: Dustin Weiss (bottom), Mark Taylor (top)
- Scene 2: Bailey Bryant (bottom), Cayden Morano (top), Jaimie Blade (bottom)
- Scene 3: Brent Corrigan (bottom), Brent Everett (top)
- Scene 4: Corey Savage (top and bottom), Trevor Peterson (top and bottom)
- Scene 5: Lance Evans (top and bottom), Shaun Ferrara (top and bottom)
It later emerged that Brent Corrigan, also known as Sean Lockhart, was underage when Bareboned Twinks was filmed. Brent Corrigan was actually only seventeen years of age at the time and he used fake identification to prove his age, because he wanted to break into the adult industry. Just over a year after Bareboned Twinks was released, Cobra Video‘s distributor Pacific Sun Entertainment instructed its retailers to remove this title from the shelves due to reports surfacing that the video contained an underage model.
My curiosity keeps asking me why Bryan included a condom scene in this video in the first place, because the video was marketed as bareback and featured numerous breeding scenes, so perhaps the inclusion of the condom scene was a last minute decision. Bareboned Twinks was produced as a celebration of twinks exchanging bodily fluids, so the only reason I can think why the condom scene was included, was because one of the stars in the scene had previously appeared in a bareback video for another studio. It is unfortunate the condom scene was included, as this is the scene that led to the video being removed from distribution.
The bareback scenes from the video can once again be enjoyed by those who want to watch it, because the condom scene has been removed and only the four bareback scenes can be viewed, making the viewing of the edited video legal. I believe that Bareboned Twinks should have been an exclusively bareback video and I don’t feel that the condom scene ever needed to be included, as four bareback scenes are better than five scenes with one of them involving the use of condoms.
My only thought about the condom scene being included in Bareboned Twinks is because the scene featured Brent Everett, a well-known Canadian twink porn star who appeared alongside new talent Brent Corrigan. Even though Brent Everett used a condom to fuck Brent Corrigan, he had previously appeared in the popular Tipo Sesso bareback video Barebacking Across America, which was released a year earlier in 2003, so it appears that Bryan may have been trying to improve the marketability of Bareboned Twinks by including the two Brent’s in this video and simultaneously build Brent Corrigan’s profile for his future bareback video appearances with Cobra Video.
I would love to hear any insights you may have about why you think Bryan included the condom scene in Bareboned Twinks and whether you think it was a good decision, had Brent Corrigan been of legal age. The bareback scenes in this video are extremely hot and some of the best twink bareback breeding scenes you can watch, due to Bryan having a natural talent for filming some of the hottest twink bareback videos ever produced.
