Is It The Responsibility Of Gay Porn Studios To Promote Safe Sex?

In an open letter to porn megasite SeanCody.com, fan and Queerty member Jon Patton said he was deeply troubled by the companies decision to start filming and featuring models engaging in codomless intercourse. He has a point: Over the past decade or so, mainstream same-sex porn has gone from adhering to a strict condom code to marketing bareback sex for profit. Even the most popular websites seem to be catering to consumer interest in unprotected sex.

Some argue that watching bareback sex on film encourages people to bareback in their own lives. Others, however, argue that condom-free pornography is simply fulfilling a fantasy and that consumers know the difference.
