Mike Dozer and Brad Kalvo examine a condom with skepticism and disdain on the set of their bareback scene for gay porn site Cocksure Men.

When Bareback Porn Crosses A Line & Becomes Socially Irresponsible

On the most basic level, I should be thrilled about a new scene between Mike Dozer and Brad Kalvo. They’re both huge, hairy muscle bears with great smiles and insatiable sexual appetites. Physically, this is a match made in gay porn heaven! It’s the type of pairing that should make both my dick and my butthole happy, as I fluctuate between wanting to finger-bang myself and wanting to selfishly stroke myself to completion.

There’s just one teensy-weensy problem.

Nope! It’s not that the scene’s bareback. Both Mike and Brad are grown men who can have sex however they want. Contrary to popular belief, I am not against bareback porn. I’ve blown my load to hundreds of bareback scenes over the year, even though I’ve continued to practice safer sex in my Manhunt hook-ups. I will, however, insist until the day I die that the absence of a condom doesn’t necessarily make a scene hotter (for me). Chemistry and enthusiasm are so much more important. I want to see performers enjoying the sex they’re having onscreen.

So what’s the big fucking issue? These two seem to be having a field day with one another! Who cares if they pause in the middle of fucking to roll off the condom that’s “suffocating” Brad’s dick? Who cares if one promo shot features them staring at a rubber with the utmost disdain? Who cares if, on the set of Mike’s upcoming bareback scene with Charlie Harding, he was spotted wearing a gigantic grin and a tank top that flippantly stated “Condoms are for pussies”?

You can call me uptight, but I care, and I care a lot.

Shaming condom users is nothing new in the gay porn industry. Treasure Island Media and similar “raw” studios have embedded this attitude into their brand, and while it might be a knee-jerk reaction to safer sex proponents who chastise and vilify anyone who has bareback sex, it’s still massively irresponsible in a time where condom usage among young people is on a drastic decline.

Before you go jumping down my throat, I’m not saying that bareback porn alone is responsible for rising HIV rates and STI outbreaks. I don’t believe that some college sophomore’s going to watch a Sean Cody scene, forget everything he may or may not have learned in his sex ed, and go get gangbanged bareback by a group of strangers.

However, I do believe that if we continue to allow messages like “condoms are for pussies” and no, I want you guys raw to permeate mainstream erotic media outside of the extreme niche “bareback” market, we’re going to see a shift toward productions that glamorize risky behavior without taking into account the potential consequences or, at the very least, drawing attention to preventative measures such as serosorting or PrEP.

I firmly believe that nobody should be made to feel ashamed about the way they want to have sex, provided they’re communicating with their partners and making informed decisions that don’t hurt themselves or others. Shunning the use of condoms is not okay in my book. I would urge Mike Dozer, and anyone else who does this, that it’s time for a “policy change“.

UPDATE: Unlike yours truly, Joe Spunked did some actual reporting to discover that the t-shirt is an inside joke between Charlie Harding and his real-life partner Scotty Rage. This still doesn’t change my feelings about the flippant attitude toward condoms portrayed in this scene between Dozer and Kalvo. Yes, I fully understand the perspective that “porn is fantasy” and, as Harding puts it on his own blog, not necessarily a “tool for social activism”… But whether you agree with me or not, it’s still irresponsible to release a scene that actively depicts condom usage as “uncool” or “inconvenient”.

  • some of the haters and condom nazi’s act like they are the governtment with the way they try and control what kind of porn is available though.

  • Jezzer

    Which still has absolutely no bearing on the concept of “free speech.” You can say anything you want. It doesn’t mean there won’t be societal repercussions. Like, for example, comparing safe sex advocates to “Nazis” is quite possibly the stupidest thing you could have said without undergoing sudden brain damage mid-sentence, but you were free to say it. Just like I’m free to point out that it’s an extremely idiotic thing to say.

  • your free to have your own opinion too but that does not make you right. i used the term condom nazi’s in reference to people like michael weinstein who have the my way or the hiway attitude about things. i was not referring to safe sex advocates as a whole many of them are great people doing great work, like harm reduction strategies, because they realize that your cannot force others to comply to only have sex with a condom. sadly there are those who don’t understand that so they continue to try and force their way upon others and if anyone doesn’t like it tough.

  • your probably the only one who misses those days. it’s sad that someone would want to turn back the clock so something like that simply to get their viewpoint across regarding bareback porn.

  • lizardkiss

    HIV is not AIDS, first off. The good ole days was actually BEFORE this disease was created when the ONLY reason to wear a condom was birth control, period! (NOT when it was easily recognizable, which is horrible considering you sound as if it was more convenient for you to know one’s status by physical degradation) I personally hate latex and condoms both, but one has to prioritize what is more important, unless one finds playing Russian roulette exciting…..

  • Danny G

    Must we gay men always have something to bitch about? Seriously it’s a fucking t-shirt. Jack off to the damn video and move on like the rest of us, if it’s not your thing just don’t watch it. And then we wonder why the gays have the rep we have…

  • Dewitt2it

    Yes, I’m sure gay men have a bad reputation for speaking out against blatant condom shaming. I’m sure that’s it.

  • Marcos

    I just refuse to see porn with “educational purposes”. Doesn’t matter where one comes from, you always get to the point of thinking: “Barebacking” in straight porn never been accused of increasing the rates of gang banging, or group sex, or Syphilis or irresponsible pregnancy. Still sounds like hints of morality trying to guide how porn material (specially gay porn) should be in order to be recognized and accepted by society.
    Adults doing things WITH adults FOR adults enjoyment fully aware of consequences or their actions. And thats all.

    Those guys are not bears. They’re gay men who take way too many steroids who are HIV+ and either want to get reinfected with the strain of HIV they have, get a new strain, get Hep C, get other STDs, and mess up their medications. That’s why BB porn is a turn off.

    HIV can still be fatal. ifthis jerk lied about his status in jail he should go1 so its not a big deal? hiv IS a big deal getting it will change your life forever, expense of meds? do the meds agree with you? what are long term effects of the meds? going to the doc the rest of your life , the stress that every time you get your check up something is going wrong..the stress having to explain yourself to family, friends, co workers and sex partners and if you dont tell anyone the stress of keeping the secret ..hiv is a VERY BIG DEAL..its not a fucking cold or upset stomach, regardless if you ever progress to aids you have all the above to deal with ..

  • Clark

    LMAO you realize that pretty much all of those guys in porn that are in BB porn are HIV+ or have other STDs, right?

  • Clark

    @Ivan-That’s the main reason why so many gay men get infected with HIV and other STDs they think that their BF or partner of the moment could not possibly be HIV+, or would never cheat on them, and that it’s OK to do it bareback because he’s a BF/partner.

  • Clark

    But the virus still diminishes quality of life. Treatment alone is about $29,000 a year. It’s not a “death sentence” but it’s far from the “living longer” mentality. It’s a nasty disease. I’m not trying to sound negative or condemning here. It’s a tough thing to undertake and not a walk in the park whatsoever.

  • tm

    bullshit on two counts: new treatments don’t cause lipodystrophy, certainly not to the same extent as they did in the 90s, and my mother still has acne – and she sure as hell isn’t on steroids!

  • wefwef

    who watched this gross porn…..

  • Datch

    It’s spelled amatEUr. What do you mean by amateur anyway? That’s someone doing something gratuitous as opposed to a professional earning money with it. If you think of virgin gays with that term, your opinion is that they should have unprotected sex on their first time? Unfunny.

  • The Mouse

    And that is a perfect example of why it is not fair to force those of us who are responsible to pay for those who are not. So if I make great money and I am responsible for my health (don’t smoke, do drugs or engage in risky unhealthy behaviors apart from things you can’t predict like cancer), i should be taxed to death to pay for bare backers?

  • Kerry B

    They are both so fucking ugly!

  • Thomas Lewis

    That’s not how it works.
    We are in it together that’s how society functions.
    People smoke, drink, some have unprotected sex, but it is far less costly than alcohol and smoking damage health wise.
    Just like if you got cancer because you had carelessly handled asbestos, society would pay for your treatment.
    What a dark horrible world you must live in to be so selfish with your taxes.

  • Thomas Lewis

    It doesn’t mask the effects, it treats it.

  • TheBelltower

    What?
