The HIV-Positive Escort Barebacking His Way Through Berlin

Berlin: Nazis, Berlin Wall, barebacking? Apparently it’s the home base for condom-free sexual adventures, earning it the nickname “Barelin” — and, for at least one poz barebacking escort, a few bucks in the process.

Well, this is one way of putting it, Vice:

Young gay men flock to the city dubbed “Barelin” from all over the place, looking for anonymous sex and the ultimate liberty to live out any cum-drenched dream that might have seemed impossible back home in their small town. Before the internet, they’d have thrown themselves into the vibrant scene around Nollendorfplatz or cruised the bars in Motzstrasse and tried their luck in any given backroom. Now, however, popular forums such as Barebackcity and Gayromeo have broken down all barriers of communication and the general “in for a penny, in for a pound” attitude of barebackers has created an ongoing no-rubber trend.

So let’s meet FFUCK4YOU, who “earns some cash on the side” by letting other HIV-positive men have sex with him without protection. He’s been HIV-positive “[s]ince 1999. I know who gave it to me. He didn’t know [he had it] at that time. It happened during a weekend session I had with my boyfriend back then. I got infected, my boyfriend didn’t.” Now he’s turn his status into a business, clearing 60 euros for an hour of his services, which include “[a]nal, fisting, some S&M. CBT [cock and ball torture]. Working the balls over. Pissing. Stuff like that. Some stuff is more expensive, but that’s discussed beforehand. Sometimes we do the whole night, or the whole weekend.”

But just try and get him to put on a rubber: FFUCK4YOU has always been having it bareback. “I always knew what I was getting myself into. Especially once I got my positive test result. I couldn’t really be with my boyfriend any more after that. I didn’t want to get him infected and told him so. He didn’t care and said I should go ahead, but I didn’t want that. So we broke up.”

      I know I should be more open-minded about bug chasers but if you want the thrill of danger and adventure why not take up bungee-jumping or skydiving. These things don’t put anyone else at risk.

      Too bad it’s unethical and impractical to deny publicly funded HIV care and medications to such people.

      It just makes absolutely no sense to have unprotected sex with someone who is know to be positive. IDGI.

      Are you really shocked by that? This is being happening for years. Openly BB escorts and those who say they don’t do, after a chemmed session, they prefer without. And, hey, as far as I know, they pay taxes, why aren’t they allowed to use the benefits? Such ignorant comment. Let’s first try to have respect among us, then we can try the others.

      There happens to be tons of free HIV educational material out there that can be accessed by any number of means. It’s time people stop living in their bubble and get educated on the subject. I truly don’t understand why we have the stigma with HIV.

      Do you understand that HIV is transmitted faster and easier by someone who is unaware of their status? Did you know that it is almost impossible to transmit the virus if you are medicated and meet some other requirements? Did you ever happen to think that maybe two poz people can and should enjoy each other without fears, worries or barriers? Did it ever occur to you that Poz people are human, have feelings, wants and needs? Maybe the real problem is not with someone who is Poz. Maybe it’s with the hypocritical Neg people who can’t loosen up enough, are uncomfortable in their own skin and too busy judging everyone else?

      I don’t know all the answers but I can say that I have never let anyone’s status prevent me from being attracted to, loving or being loved.

      Henning : I guess Berlin’s always been known for that. Has a history of creative people, but also a lot of sick kooks. Especially in the gay ghetto.

      Never have I heard “Barelin” before, and I think I would know.

      It alsop never fails to amaze me that every post on queerty regarding Germany starts with some Nazi-stereotype bullshit.

      the thought of having HIV terrifies me, i was force fed that HIV equals DEATH. I got educated as I got older. The thing is if you want me u need a condom, I want a family, I want my own biological children, NOBODY i don’t care how hot you are your not fucking me raw. I also don’t use drugs or drink, I let the music be my drug when I’m at clubs. So many sad stories all because they were fucked up, learn from others mistakes is the best advice you could ever recieve!
