Sean Cody Joins The Bareback Bandwagon

That whimpering sound you hear is gay angels crying: It seems top porn site Sean Cody has just released its first bareback scene. The website—which specializes in impossibly hunky, straight-looking college types who seem eager to fraternize with their bros—joins Corbin Fisher and other mainstream portals in taking condom-free sex out the realm of fetish sites.

The clip, “Brandon & Pierce Unwrapped,” does come with a warning label of sorts.

As Fleshbot reports:

Some sites feature a disclaimer, urging viewers to play safe at home and insuring that their models are tested. Sean Cody has one: “Unprotected sex is not something we recommend or endorse.”

Whether or not bareback porn leads to unprotected sex among viewers has been hotly contested and is almost impossible to prove.

We generally err on the side of letting grown adults make their own judgment calls—and pray they make the right one. But even if there’s no correlation between porn viewing and personal sexual practices, there are still two men having unprotected gay sex.

Aren’t we worried about their health?

Residents of Los Angeles will vote next year on whether or not to require all porn companies use condoms consistently. But since SC is based in San Diego (we think), its studs wouldn’t have to wrap it up even if the measure passed.

What do you think: No glove, no love—or no harm, no foul?

      I’m sorry, but could you please explain what “straight looking” men are?

      Are those men who walk around with a vagina permanently attached to their penis?

      What exactly makes a man “straight looking”? poor fashion sense? bad manicure? Trump-esque comb-over?

      This is the WORST sort of self-hatred imaginable.

      At its most innocuous, the term “straight-looking” is a lazy reference to stereotypes in lieu of actual description.

      Just imagine someone using “black-looking” to describe someone.

      The disclaimer is a joke. They might as well say: “We shot it, we think it’s a bad it’s a bad idea, but we shot it anyway.” Sorry, Sean Cody: But, you shot it, you put it on your website you ARE responsible for what you put on your website. Grow a pair already. By the way, your website sucks.

      AND, exactly what kind of HIV testing are they doing? Standard HIV testing with a 3 week to 6 month “window,” the new “combo test” with a 16 day window or traditional PCR testing which has a 12 day window? (window=period during which you won’t test positive, even though you actually are).

      For me ‘straight-looking’ generally means no fem fashion and Gayface. I prefer it like that. But that’s just me. As for the barebacking, I’ll be the last one to say what two consenting adults should and should not do to eachother. I do think it’s kind of hot though.

      I thinks it’s more dangerous put forth the assumption that unprotected sex between two men equals HIV infection than it is to depict it in a porn film. What is the equvilent for straight porn? By depicting unsafe sex in straight porn, said porn companies are responsible for the rising pregnancy rate? It’s silly. You and you alone are responsible for your actions. Are we really at the point when just because something offends your sensibilities, it shouldn’t exist? I say we’re all adults and we make our own choices. A Nightmare on Elm St. Is my favorite movie of all time, but I don’t kill people in their sleep. I’m an adult and I don’t use condoms in my relationship because I don’t have to. Both my partner and myself are neg and it bothers me that gay men are the ones reinforcing the idea that gay sex equals HIV. That isn’t going to help up further our cause. Instead of mandatory condoms use, why not implement a ban on HIV + performers? I think it’s more dangerous to have sex safe with a positive guy than to bareback with someone that is also negative. Or make it mandatory to serosort performers. It’s very callous to say, but those two idea would do more to protect negative performers from HIV infection than mandatory condom use. With that being said, I would never vote for or support that type of legislation because it takes away choices from performers, who are adults and should be able to make informed decisions.

      The two big issues this commenter has with bareback-
      1.) There are a handful (and then some) of porn stars who really handle themselves as savvy business-types, but there are also the young, broke, desperate (and sometimes unstable-) models who are really just looking for some cash. While these adults are technically competent under the law and can sign their own bareback shoot contract, in such cases as the latter archetypal broke-and-down, bareback just borders on manipulative and unethical.
      2.) Anyone can click the “I am over 18″ buttons to gain access to any porn site. Kids can, and do, see these videos. And though children aren’t the target audience and directors/studios do not need to cater their flicks to them, we must remember that kids learn about sex by viewing porn. Especially gay kids- because god knows they aren’t getting their information from as-religious-as-public-schools-can-get-away-with sex ed courses. If they see sex without condoms, particularly in videos accompanied by descriptions of how great it feels in comparison (“There was no friction! I could really feel it!” C’mon, Sean Cody! The silly disclaimer doesn’t override that!), there is a chance they’ll be more compelled to experiment accordingly.

      Finally, I hope that avid defenders and masturbators of bareback are equally inclined to watch the videos and read the blogs of the very models they jacked to getting it raw as they talk about the moment they got their positive test back, the side effects of the medications, etc., etc. (Of course, this don’t happen. The viewers start slut shaming and condemning. My god, look at articles about Mason Wyler!) Maybe bareback is “hotter,” but at what price?

      @QJ201: PCR tests are standard in porn and many sites proudly brag that they use them, although I don’t know that Sean Cody has said anything. The truth is that no one knows how risky this is. There are just too many variables and too few data points. What is known is that a number of workers in straight porn have gotten HIV. The testing industry used to release names and scene partners of infected people but they no longer do so, so it’s not easily possible to track infections.

      The PCR test has an approximate two week window and performers are only required to test once a month. The best documented outbreak in 2004 involved a performer who voluntarily chose to pay for his own more frequent expensive PCR tests. He had a negative test within the two week window. Had he followed industry standards he could have worked a whole month based on that false negative and exposed many more people. As it was, three other people seroconverted and dozens of people had sex with the four HIV positive models.

      Oh, and no one even bothers to test for herpes. They just check for sores and hope for the best.

      I have no objections to bareback sex if both people are healthy. Bareback sex between 2 healthy people is perfectly OK.

      However, if you are having sex with strangers, it’s wise to use protection. Having sex with strangers – whose health status you know nothing about – opens you up to the possibility that you are having sex with someone who has a disease. He may have a disease or he may not have a disease but it’s best to be safe.

      Keep in mind that it is easy for me to advise thus but it’s another thing altogether when the power of the male sex drive overtakes common sense in stranger sex situations. The power of the male sex drive is a very big factor here, one which replaces common sense.

      @DenverBarbie. A: I’m done with the “gay kids” bandwagon. I was a gay kid who watched lots of bareback, vintage porn and never got the virus. Why, because I’m not an idiot and knew that porn wasn’t real and that I had to use condoms in REAL life. With that being said I have two question for all you condom Nazis that believe people mimick the sexual behaviors they see in porn. Why wasn’t HIV all but eradicated during the 90’s when pretty much ALL gay porn depicted condom use? By your logic, no one who watched porn during that time period barebacked, so there should have been few to no cases of new transmissions in that era. My second question is, I’ve never seen meth used in a gay porn film, but the proliferation of PNP in our community is at an all time high. So how did meth become a part of gay sex culture if no one ever saw it used in a movie? The issue with bareback isn’t porn. It’s sensation, it feels better. Way better. That’s why people do it. That why we drink and do drugs, because we like the way they make us feel. Someone saying they got HIV because they watched a lot of bareback porn is like saying I’m a cokehead because I love the movie Scarface. People do what they want because they want to. As for bareback porn, as long as the models are sero-coordinate, I don’t see what the issue is.

      @Abaca: I am very glad to hear that you were a kid capable of utilizing critical thinking skills. I wish all kids were as bright as you apparently were. This is not sarcasm. Perhaps, in addition to your wisdom beyond your years, you had access to gay youth centers? Maybe you lived in a more open area? Maybe you were provided with accurate (scare tactic-free) information on STIs? It’s wonderful if you did, and I can only hope that more and more kids find themselves in such positions. Certainly that’s more of a factor in reducing rates in the under-24 sect than porn, I won’t even deny that.
      (And trust me, I’m sick to death of the tired youth “bandwagon” too, but it’s just a reality.)

      My argument is as it reads. I did not say that bareback porn is the cause of all infections; I do not believe for a second that eradicating bareback porn would end HIV/AIDS. That is grossly optimistic. Though, I do think not glamorizing risky behavior might be one more piece of the jigsaw.

      @Abaca: you make an excellent point. And the bottom line for many is that it feels better and men like the continuation to keep going and not having to stop and put a condom on. And regardless if a man is gay or straight, I believe our natural instinct is not to have a barrier there. So many men will follow their natural instinct.

      @Abaca: Porn starts are adults and able to make informed decisions? I’m sure some are… But you just have to trawl the pages of Queerty to find stories about porn stars who have made some pretty terrible decisions.

      Let’s get this clear. The view that we’re all responsible and sensible have free will is simply Republican rhetoric for “abandon the weak and the poor so they can be exploited further”. I’m afraid it won’t wash. It’s a cruel, selfish argument, all dressed up to make the speaker appear like they’re a nice caring person when actually they don’t care about anything except their own pleasure, their own fun and their own health.

      The fact of the matter is that this is the way men have been having sex for centuries and always will HIV or not. Porn is a fantasy. It is not reality. It does not “inspire” or encourage young men to go out and have sex without a condom. You do what is right for you and your partner. This idea or notion that all men,gay,bisexual or straight should use a condom for every encounter is unrealistic.And who are we dictating that to? American gay men? European? Younger? Older? Single men?

      Who needs anti-gays when we do so much self-inflicting damage?

      In this economy with social services being cut and nonprofits financially struggling, it’s especially dangerous to get HIV.

      Since schools are not teaching LGBT-inclusive sex ed, most LGBTs, especially gays and transgenders, will get there first ideas about sex from sites like Adam 4 Adam, Xtube, and all the porn sites.

      Just as smoking billboards by schools increase smoking among kids and just as bombarding poor neighborhoods with fast food restaurants increases obesity, bombarding young LGBTs with depictions of unsafe sex will likely have (or is already having) a subconscious effect on the their sexual behavior.

      No wonder why HIV rates remain disproportionately high among gay men.

      LGBT mega groups are quick to fight anti-LGBTs who hurt us but they seem to be mute when we hurt ourselves. This begs the question of who’s profiting from the HIV/AIDS pharmaceutical industry.

      Meanwhile, my impression of many HIV/AIDS activists is they refuse to get harsh on the glorifiers of unprotected sex for fear of repealing LGBTs from conversations about safer sex. Yet, again, HIV rates among gay men remain high.

      I boycott bareback porn glorifiers, I do not watch BB porn on free sites, and I encourage my friends to always use condoms at least until 2 HIV negative tests into an LTR. Then again, since some places will not allow couples to get results together due to HIPA laws, you can never really know if your partner is honest unless the HIV tester provides a confirmation of the result at the time of visit.

      I’m not sure why everyone here thinks that porn studios should be the models for or pillars of the community. Hopefully we can develop more interesting models and pillars than porn stars. Does the straight community look to porn stars to set a positive example for their kids? That’s sort of ridiculous… and points to a larger problem we have as a community of making sex and sexual performance so center stage. Go to any gay bar and you’re likely to see porn playing on the television screens. Would such a thing happen in most straight bars?

      Also, I take issue with people who act as if young kids won’t know what they should do if they are exposed to bareback porn. I went to an average american school and knew quite clearly that wearing a condom was the norm at that age, whether you were straight or gay, if you didn’t want to get an STD or find yourself with an unwanted pregnancy. I don’t remember even considering unprotected sex until I was older and in a longer term relationship. And I saw and was exposed to lots of things…

      @Cinesnatch: Yes, professional stuntmen take precautions but those precautions cannot be evident to the audience in the situation being depicted onscreen. Professional pornographers take precautions too, but those precautions have to work within the depictions the audience demands, so don’t be surprised if someone starts to do CGI condom removals (the way safety wires are erased in action films) and green screen bukake.

      My point stands: If an amateur wants to foolishly copy a professionally-staged depiction of something dangerous, they’re going to do it. If someone wants to bareback because that’s the way the “story” has to play-out for them, then they’re going to do that.

      Humans make mistakes, and you will never make the world safe from poor reasoning unless you removal all personal freedoms.

      Bruce is correct, these are professional cum dumpsters and prostitutes. If they want to do it bare or raw it’s their choice and they don’t reflect the LGBT community at all, and the whole idea of “gay for pay” is a total myth since no hetero guy actually wants to have sex with a guy and actually wants it filmed and put on the internet and then onto DVD.

      With the whole window period and testing I agree with QJ101 it’s rather pointless since if you know anything about people in porn it is that they make the most money by being prostitutes and they will ALL do it bareback or raw with their johns/clients for the right price. Let’s also not forget how a lot of people who do porn have substance abuse problems and may use condoms in porn when they’re required but bareback when they have sex that’s not being filmed for a porn.

      Does bareback porn “make” gay men have unsafe sex? Of course not.

      But does it help the STILL HIGH rate of HIV infections among gay men? Absolutely not.

      One of the threats the homophobes say of us is that we “spread disease.” I don’t see how condoning unsafe sex, whether it be by actors, “stunt men,” or whomever, helps our cause any. On the contrary, it just WORSENS the situation.

      I’m saddened to see how many gay men have the maturity & intelligence of a special needs kid. There is NO cure for HIV/AIDS. Despite what the ads show, antiviral drugs are no picnic in the park. The ONLY near sure thing is using condoms. No ifs or buts.

      Joetx,

      The anal sex act is not the cause of AIDS. If anal sex were to blame, how do you explain the lack of AIDS in many heterosexual couples who engage in anal sex?

      The simple fact is that, in the twentieth century, increased mobility (such as airplanes, trains, cars etc) made it possible for men from many different parts of the globe to mingle in one single spot. For instance, a single gay bar in WeHo can serve as a magnet for men from Zanzibar to Ulan Bator. When you have men from diverse backgrounds meeting in these places and having sex with each other in one-night stands, you’re combining two humans with relatively unconditioned immune systems.

      What does this mean? This means that one man’s immune system is totally unprepared for the unfamiliar pathogens that may exist in his fuck buddy’s body. As a result, strange and unusual conditions may develop.

      Combine this with the cascade of promiscuity that exists within the gay male social scene, and you basically have a recipe for amplification of these strange and unusual conditions. This is why strange and unusual illnesses were the hallmark of the AIDS condition.

      Of course, the same increased mobility issue applies to heterosexual meeting places. However, in male-female paradigms, the female acts to curtail the rampant sexuality of the male, thus reducing the promiscuity cascade that is a major factor in the spread of sexually transmitted illnesses.

      first off…who cares? what people of age do in the bedroom is their own damned business. who’s there?..Condom police?..but i thought Lawrence v. Texas meant we could have sex without fear of the government intruding and dictating (pun quite intended) what consenting adults do sexually.

      it’s funny how people fight the status quo for the right to stick it in someone’s ass, but then turn around and do something frighteningly similar to what the breeders and bigots did in the first place: tell them how not to have sex and which way is wrong.

      oh..and Dan (seems there are nothing but Dans in this blog) i don’t know who you are but “straight-acting” is a term that is short-sighted, and perpetuates self-loathing in the gay community.

      @jason: Thank you for illustrating my comment about many gay men having the intelligence & maturity of a special needs kid.

      You are ignorant beyond measure if you believe that HIV is spread by encountering people from around the globe & being “unprepared” for “unfamiliar pathogens.”

      Unprotected sex isn’t the only way HIV, or any other STD, is spread. We (excluding you, it seems) know that along w/ unprotected sex, sharing of needles, & blood transfusions are the other ways HIV is spread. But unprotected sex is by far the most common route of transmission. And using a condom, which is close to 100% effective, is the best way to prevent transmission during sex.

      Preventing the spread of HIV by condom use isn’t an F’ing difficult concept to understand.

      Joetx,

      Your comments are similar to those of the AIDS industry. I find it difficult to muster any respect for them.

      Exactly how does this not violate OSHA safe workplace practices. This should be banned in the US as it constitutes an unsafe workplace.

      People may have a right to play Russian Roulette, but profiting off of it is not allowed.

      I say lets ban profiting off of bareback sex. It won’t stop all of it, but it will certainly make it more difficult for people to profit off of it.

      @jason: Jason, using big words doesn’t really make you look smarter, you know.

      All it does is make you look like MORE of a fucking idiot than you already are.

      You obviously know just about nothing about HIV/AIDS. And I see no reason to correct you, since you’re exactly the type of person to stick his fingers in his ears and yell “la la la la la I can’t HEAR you”.

      @Tommy Shepherd: And the thought that everyone needs someone holding their hands so they don’t walk into the street because they just can’t take care of themselves is liberalism taken too far. And I say that AS a liberal.

      I was raised and grew up in a Baptist home, close-minded, hyper-religious, all sex (not to mention gay sex) was wrong and evil outside of holy marriage, etc. I was never taught about safe sex, beyond “Don’t do it outside of marriage.” and I never spoke to anyone gay until well into my 20’s when I finally came out.

      And yet, here I am, in my 30’s, not infected with anything, never had an STD. Why? Because I’m not an idiot. I knew that sex was dangerous because even sheltered as I was, I paid attention to the news, and to the world, and to reality. I chose to inform myself.

      If you don’t bother informing yourself, if your entire system of sex is based on what you see in porn, then yeah, maybe you do deserve to suffer the consequences of your ignorance. The information is out there, accessible and easy to find for anyone with even a passing knowledge of the internet, and it is YOUR responsibility to educate yourself, not mine to smack you while you stick your fingers in your ear and whine about ‘sensations’. If you want slightly better-feeling sex at the risk of your health…well, that’s a risk you knowingly take. Making porn actors wear condoms won’t change the reality of that.

      Well, let’s see what a sex-worker who has felt the pressure to shoot bareback scenes has to say about all this:

      “Before the arrival of anti-retrovirals in the mid 1990s, the whole industry demanded condoms because so many gay men were dying of Aids. But since then, there has been a significant increase in the bareback business, creating pressure to have unprotected sex. Some productions are ready to pay more for unsafe sex, even shooting films in poorer countries where actors are more likely to accept the risk of HIV infection – the same countries where there is little or no access to anti-retrovirals. Even in safe films, no effort is made to eroticise condom use. The condom appears as if by magic just before penetration, as if showing how to put it on couldn’t be sexy.

      The gay community does not do much to protect its sex workers. You can find both prevention messages from HIV organisations and adverts for bareback movies in the same gay magazine. It’s complete hypocrisy. The gay press is actually dependent on the bareback business, receiving money from porn companies, sex clubs organising bareback parties and gay stores selling bareback products.

      This issue doesn’t concern only porn actors, but the whole gay community. My generation is lucky to have started its sex life after the worst stages of the HIV outbreak, but nowadays there is not the same mobilisation and solidarity. It’s every man for himself, and so what if something happens? Ron Stall of the University of Pittsburgh has estimated that 41% of American gay men will be HIV positive by the age of 40 if current infection rates continue, with the incidence even higher among black men. The consequences of the bareback business and its normalisation are already with us.”

      What’s the point of barebacking, if you’re gonna pull out and cum on his back or face?

      Mason Wyler? Got his gift called HIV from barebacking everything that moved for extra cash. Many young and older men got this retarded concept that HIV today is like having diabetes where you take a pill and it won’t bother you much. Porn companies are responding to consumer demand that want bareback porn. In a decade from now, we will see up to 70% of young gay men walking around with chronic HIV infections demanding that state and federal government subsidize their daily HIV cocktails. Ironically, the fight against HIV is creating a culture that no longer cares about safe sex. Who needs condoms when shooting cum inside some stranger’s ass you met on craigslist is so “hawt.” Get HIV and a city health department will start giving you free meds for it.

      HIV testing is an illusion to safety. We don’t have the technology that eliminates “window period” gaps between HIV infection and period when tests start to pick it up. Nor does a HIV negative result guarantee you that the person did not get infected the day after the test. Don’t be lazy people. Practice safe sex. I don’t want people contaminating the ever shrinking pool of STD free men in the gay world with HIV, Herpes and all sorts of warts.

      Good grief!! I HAD a hard-on before I read message No. 1. Now, he’s wondering what’s goin on up my head again, LOL!!

      Anyway, I don’t care to quote anyone on here, tell anyone what to do or what not to do, or nor I want to point fingers at any studio or porn actor, whatever.

      I’m not gonna say anything except this:
      I’ve had HIV since 1990-1992. Today is Jan. 1, 2012. All I can say, FOR ME, is:
      It works!! And they keep cumming back!!

      Happy New Year Everyone!!

      To those of you who are screaming that everyone is responsible for their own health and safety, please don’t completely lose your sense of humanity and community.
      I’m over 40 and have had sex with several younger men in their 20’s this past year. WITHOUT EXCEPTION, each of them had to be schooled on safe sex when I was unwilling to bareback and perform other unsafe practices with them. I believe that many, if not most, younger guys who did not grow up in the era of the HIV fear that many of us did, do not take this matter seriously. Like most kids, they believe they are invincible. I think the proliferation of unsafe sex in porn is extremely dangerous, because many younger guys watch this stuff and repeat it in their lives. Then they read blogs filled with lines like ‘Wow, this is fucking hot,’ and the cycle continues. Sean Cody can post all the disclaimers he wants, but it doesn’t acquit him.

      This is where the idea/ argument of “gay liberation” comes crashing down. Because at the end of the day when we go to bed, so many will slowly be dying of this disease (HIV/ AIDS)… it’s not worth much if we’re all lying in coffins. What kind of messed up lives do we live if something so integral to us and that compromises such an essential part of our humanity is literally murdering us? Think about it.

      Well either these sites doing bareback videos don’t know or don’t care but:
      SHOOTING/MAKING BAREBACK VIDEOS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA & some other states is ILLEGAL!!
      hopefully they and all the bareback video producers will get shut down soon!
      I feel it’s outrageous and disgusting for them to put people in such dangerous situations for a few more bucks!

      What Sean Cody website has realized is that they were losing viewers to other sites that contain bareback. Lets face it, whether or not you agree that barebacking is hot or dangerous, the majority of guys prefer to watch and do it bareback. Sean Cody is just cashing in much like Chaos Men & Bel Ami did.

      I don’t get the fuzz about TO WEAR or Not TO WEAR: that’s the question? Isn’t it clear enough? not wearing a condom puts you at risk, wearing one doesn’t. Everybody has his responsibilities, but the most for themselves! So if a guy doesn’t wear a rubber: just don’t fuck! you can get other STD’s as well!
