Barebacking in porn.
« on: December 15, 2009, 09:27:00 PM »

What do you guys think about barebacking in porn (not in that way)? For those of you who don't know, barebacking is when the guy doesn't use a condom.
I'm not gonna lie and say, "I don't watch porn because I'm under eighteen." I watch porn and, being gay, I watch gay porn. I saw an advert for some upcoming film where the guys bareback. I assume they'd test both guys for STIs before they actually did it but is it still okay for them to do it? Porns stars will have slept with several people. It's kinda their job.
A teacher of mine was telling me that studies show porn is defining, more and more, what people perceive as the "norm" for having sex, bodies, etc. If people see porn stars disregarding the use of condoms altogether, will they stop using them, also? Should someone watching porn be smart enough to know to use a condom even if a porn star doesn't? I think so but not everyone will be smart enough to realise the importance of safe sex.
I can't say I've ever seen examples of barebacking in straight porn (durr) but have any of you guys? Do you think it's fair for a porn producer or whatever to ask for a girl to risk pregnancy for the sake of a scene? I don't and I don't think you guys will either.

I suppose, if I was summing up this post, I'd be asking is it okay for condoms not to be used in porn and what are your opinions on that subject.

i've seen a lottttttt more porn than i have enjoyed in life, if that makes sense.  one thing i have noticed as a pretty steady trend in gay male porn since about early 1990's on, is that condoms are pretty much de riguer; not so much for the endless blowjobbery, but definitely for any kind of anal penetration.  i mean it was so commonplace that you would notice more if the guys weren't wearing them.  i have not seen a lot of fluid-sharing, either, if there is fluid actually consumed, so to speak, it generally belonged to the excreter, not the partner.

nobody wore condoms in seventies porn.

straight porn has not been anything like this in my experience.  most porn i have seen that was made for heterosexuals, which is to say, when even the 'lesbian' sex isn't lesbians, is bareback.  completely and utterly bareback, almost without exception.  the only porn i have ever seen that had like, straight up fetish junk in it but absolutely no copulating was san fransisco lesbian porn (volume 13), made by and for lesbians, and it was pretty awful, but they used pretty annoyingly preachy strict safe sex, what there was of the sex.

and, lastly, in some of the more, um, 'moist' fetish videos i have seen, nobody was really concerned at all with safe sex, being as how they were bathing in one another's........ whatever.  i really seriously doubt even the 'cleaner' end of the sex industry does a lot of blood testing, though.  i'd like to think the gay guys would though, since condoms have been so prevalent in gay smut films, but what i know of the porn industry's workings (not a lot other than hearsay) tells me it isn't probable.

damn....................i have seen a lot of porn.


my opinion has always been that i thought it was pretty responsible of gays to show a good example.  it of course increased my opinion of us all.  then again, i suppose since they thought in the beginning of HIV and AIDS that it was more a gay disease than otherwise, the straight end of the industry didn't consider it as important as, you know, showing off the cock or whatever.  it's actually kind of ironic when you think about it, that people called gays this big health risk in the beginning ('omg what if our waiter is gay and he, like, spits in the food!  and, like, he just got done giving another guy head, omg we could totally get it!!!!!!!!'  you actually heard shit like that), yet even the porn is more conscientious and cleaner.  i don't see any problem with condoms being used in porn, though; i don't myself use a lot of cock for porn, but the female equivalent wouldn't bother me either.  lol, i draw most of my own porn anyway.

It's actually illegal in California, where most US films are made, but the law is difficult
to enforce.  Also, most film makers require a full range of STD tests for their "talent".

Unfortunately, the time span between :
(exposure) -> (sufficient infection to be contagious) -> (positive test result)
...still leads to some disease transmission.  HIV is the major concern, since
most other STDs are either curable or considered "nuisance" diseases.

As for whether it's OK....  Watch a non-porn movie.  There's crime, reckless driving, gunfire,
drug use (oddly, not so much smoking any more) generally with no adverse consequence, and
certainly not with the degree of adverse consequence you'd get in the real world if you, just
for example, re-enacted any movie car-chase scene... 

...and are you concerned that people will get stupid ideas from a porno?
[warning: boring psychology]
People learn behaviors by watching others, first their parents then others around them.  Ever
notice what a nuisance potty-training is?  It's because social norms making modeling proper
potty-behavior as absolute no-no.  People get a little older, and where do they see sexual behavior
modeled?  In movies.  (If you catch your parents, you are required by society to be traumatized and
to seek therapy.)  Sure, one can seek out sensible advice from Dr. [Ruth, Drew, Phil, Kinsey], but
it has to presented in a relatively dry (no pun intended) clinical form...  just like this comment.
[/boring psych]

So people watch porn and learn that every sexual encounter must follow a specific script, starting
with a really buff pizza guy knocking on the door...

This thread reminds me of the book Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk. One of its main plot points is accidental pregnancy from barebacking, and it goes on about how awful the porn industry is with the shaving and the date rape drugs.

I sure hope STD tests are common. I wouldn't go into the profession myself XP

Speaking of "don't feel bad".....

Sometime when you're feeling bored, clear all your cookies and temporary files, then visit
whatever ONE porn page might appeal to you.  Then close it and see how many different
temps/cookies it left on your machine...  :o

That's the most pathetic reason for visiting a porn site I ever heard, CGB.

Must try it...

oh, i mean even before the internet.  my neighbor in college, in the big victorian slum/apt building i stayed in, had an extensive collection of gay porn dating from the sixties, for example.......boring nights were spent tripping and watching whatever titles seemed the most inappropriate.  holy god.  once i got a computer and learnt of the magic of the internets, i was kind of bored and already jaded so not so surprised at what i found in my fledgling searches.

nowadays mostly what i go looking for online, if i go looking, is all drawn.  and as i said, i make most of my own porn (drawn) too, since no one really caters to my own specific weirdnesses....not even alyss' beloved /b/ board.

I am so happy the men I've been with weren't so influenced by bareback in porn that they actually told me when the condom slipped off. I've been with a few who said that barebacking was so hot and should be done all the time. I don't talk to those guys anymore.

i've always wandered, how do lesbians have safe sex?  :-\ :embarassed: :embarassed:

Lord-- I don't know, either. http://lesbianlife.about.com/cs/sex/a/safersex.htm This was the first result I found for "Safe sex for lesbians" and all it seems to say it make sure you don't ingest any fluids that can carry AIDS, HIV, etc. i.e., vaginal fluids, blood. That got me thinking about oral sex and, apparently, STIs can be transferred that way, too. I'm going to admit, outright, that I didn't know that. I don't want to put a condom on a guy for giving him a blowjob or one on me if I'm receiving one. :/

I had made a presentation on AIDS years ago at highschool and I had read how do people get infected and there was oral sex too, because suppose you have the tiniest cut on your lips/mouth, if you get in contact with even a tiny drop of the person's blood you can get it.
But as weird as it would be for a guy to give a blowjob with a condom, I don't think women even have the choice...
