Erect Boys 18 believes porn producers should take all reasonable measures to shield their models from HIV and other STDs. The utilization of condoms when fucking continues to be the most effective way to prevent HIV infection, on the set and off. However, with the appearance of improved testing and treatments, a lot of porn producers are choosing to film bareback scenes.

Even with vastly improved treatments, HIV/AIDS remains a health threat. Although manageable with medications, HIV continues to be incurable and may lead to a lifetime of health complications.

The use of condoms when fucking is still the single most effective method for prevention of transmission of the virus through sex.

Do bareback producers take precautions to make certain models have the same HIV status?
There is no consistent policy among bareback producers for pairing models. Some try and use only models that are HIV positive; others try and use only models that are HIV negative. Many producers test their models with the most advanced tests available; others simply ask models what their HIV status is and take them at their word. With all of those “ifs” it’s simply not possible to gage the true risk level when we see condomless fucking onscreen.

Can’t HIV testing screen out HIV+ models?
The most common style of HIV testing detects antibodies that the immune system has created to combat the virus. however during the earliest phase of HIV infection the body’s immune system has not kicked in sufficiently to produce antibodies at a detectable level. therefore somebody who is recently infected may test negative yet still pass the virus to his partner. Most people who have been exposed develop detectable antibodies around thirty days post infection; the overwhelming majority of individuals (97%) have detectable antibodies within ninety days.

There are additional sensitive (and expensive) tests that search for the genetic material of HIV itself (rather than antibodies.) These are referred to as PCR tests and they can produce a positive test result within fifteen to thirty days of infection.

The long and the short of it is that — even with the most effective tests on the market — simply because somebody tests negative doesn’t mean he definitively is negative.

What if both models are HIV+
While many HIV positive men prefer to have unprotected sex with partners they know are HIV positive, the problem with bareback sex is that we have no method of knowing if this is really what’s happening onscreen. For model privacy reasons, studios never put out an announcement that their models are HIV+.

Can watching porn have an effect on people’s attitudes or sexual behavior?
We think that individual attitudes and behaviors are affected by media, as well as entertainment; safer sex on the screen reinforces the concept that sex with condoms is hot. We tend to believe producers have a moral obligation to provide valid information to viewers regarding their screening strategies and also the risks of unprotected sex.

What am I able to do?
Remember that your decisions do make a difference. Even if you do get pleasure from viewing bareback porn, try not to write off all the other great porn available to you.

Most importantly though, respect (and protect) your partners by always trying to have safer sex.
