This is the perfect time to reflect on what has happened during the year and to remain hopeful for what’s to come in the new year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for visiting Brad Bare, taking time to read the posts I have published, participating through comments and showing your support by clicking on the links before purchasing your memberships at the bareback porn sites featured here.
2017 has been another year of change, with Brad Bare undergoing some cosmetic improvements, with a fresh theme that better showcases scenes from studios than previous designs. There has also been improvements made to the back-end to help the blog function as smoothly as possible, which requires ongoing maintenance and monitoring. I have also continued delivering fast page loads, whilst maintaining your security through secure sockets. Some gay porn blogs have only just started taking advantage of this security feature and some bareback porn sites are also hardening the security of their sites, with more to follow I am sure.
Last year I introduced a second blog called Raw Rapture to help better showcase the bareback porn that’s on offer. The number of gay porn sites offering bareback content continues to grow, so I created a second blog to help better showcase bareback porn releases. This has created issues with me being able to personally write descriptions for each post, which I previously did. As I work a full-time job and only part-time as a blogger, I am now using descriptions provided by the studios due to time constraints. I still lightly edit the text, so a personal touch still goes into the wording, as does each of the manually resized photos and video clips featured in every post. This involves me publishing approximately sixty posts a month in total at Brad Bare and Raw Rapture for your viewing pleasure.
As of this moment, there are currently 2,275 published posts at Brad Bare and 473 published posts at Raw Rapture. Brad Bare would have had over 3,000 posts, only I deleted posts featuring studios that are no longer online or sites that started removing scenes to only return them again as a new update (this is a very shady practice), a decision I regret, as it would have been nice to maintain an archive of bareback porn from over the years. My priority has always been to feature bareback porn from a selection of reputable studios, which originally led to my decision to only maintain scenes from current bareback porn sites, so you’ll only see the good stuff here.
Here are some other interesting stats in case you’re interested. Brad Bare has received 162,423 blocked malicious login attempts involving people trying to access the back-end. In addition to the 2,275 published posts at Brad Bare, there are 3,625 approved comments, plus 352,345 spam comments blocked. Sometimes genuine comments are flagged as spam, so I manually check the filtered comments, with some still slipping between the cracks due to the huge number of comments. These numbers are probably small in comparison to other blogs that are larger in size and more popular. In just over twelve months, Raw Rapture has been subjected to 56,763 malicious login attempts, with only 448 comments being flagged as spam and 797 comments approved.
There has been several new bareback porn sites released throughout the year, including Family Dick and Young Perps, which both come from the producer of Mormon Boyz. Rocco Steele released his personal site My 10 Inches, which features a mix of bareback and condom scenes, swaying more towards bareback sex. French producer Eric from Eric Videos licensed his videos to an American entertainment network that created Eric Raw. Guys In Sweatpants returned to releasing regular bareback scenes, which are some of the hottest bareback scenes being released right now. Helix Studios relaunched the 8teenBoy brand by creating a bareback porn site focusing on “ultra twinks” in the 18 to 21 age bracket. Dick Dorm (a sub-site from the Reality Dudes Network) started releasing bareback scenes for a while, although the frequency seems to have slowed down, but they also released Dudes In Public, which features a decent number of bareback scenes. Next Door Studios started releasing bareback content at some of their sites including Next Door Buddies.
Some of the studios no longer updating regularly include Bang Bang Boys, CockSure Men, Bukkake Boys, Hot Barebacking, Drill Him and Parole Him. These sites are all still online offering bareback content, but they remain stagnant, with no new content being released, although if you haven’t checked them out before, a one month membership could still be worth considering while they’re still online. Bareback That Hole and Bareback Cum Pigs are both standalone sites, but they now share content, with scenes mirroring each other at both sites.
The bareback porn landscape is changing, with less revenue meaning some studios have made the decision to import European porn, which is cheaper than filming locally. This represents less modelling opportunities for bareback porn models, so some models are filming and releasing their own videos at online outlets such as Only Fans, which can be a great way to support the models you admire. The only problem here is that if porn studios have less money to pay models, then the pool of models willing to work with studios also becomes smaller.
The dwindling bareback porn revenue for smaller and individual studios is going to result in a smaller selection of porn being available and lower production standards, so if you can show your support, then it will help keep bareback porn production alive. Bareback porn is designed to entertain us and help us release tension and stress that builds up from our daily lives and you deserve quality bareback porn, so paying for your porn can help you feel better and simultaneously help keep the industry producing quality porn in the future.
I am a fan of many bareback porn sites, but I have to say that since Guys In Sweatpants returned to regular bareback updates this year, there has been a swath of fantastic scenes released that are sure to put some reinforcement into your erection. Helix Studios has been doing a superb job releasing high quality bareback porn with an artistic approach. Next Door Raw is where you will find some unique porn plots, with plenty of bareback raunch still on tap at Raw Fuck Club and TIMFuck (Treasure Island Media). Raw Rods has received a sleek new look just in time for Christmas, with a design that helps the content really stand out. Raw Rods has been showcasing some of the best rimming I have ever seen and the barebacking is really hot too, so make sure you check it out!
Thank you for spending time with me throughout the year. I hope you will continue enjoying the bareback updates in 2018 and although I’m just one person who cannot showcase new scenes as quickly as some of the bloggers who work on their blogs full-time or have multiple people working on them, I do work hard to showcase a selection of porn from a spectrum of studios based on a quality over quantity approach.
