Conner Habib weighs in on this issue.
Here are the issues as I see them:
There is a workplace safety issue for the models. Models are able to choose whether they wish to work with condoms or not. Condoms have been shown to provide a large risk reduction of infection for HIV during anal intercourse.
Since we live in a free society, there will always be a demand for bb, which is alright for consenting adults who are in mongamous relationships or who are already HIV+. However, younger people and teens will want it to see bb and use it irresponsibly and that is a problem.
Models may choose to work on bb films, but have to live with the fact that they will influence or are even responisble for young people to have sex without condoms and become HIV+. Same for directors and studios of bb films.
It will be incredibly difficult to rid the system of bb films.
Fair View is a safe sex blog, and no bb films will ever be promoted here.
Safe sex is hot sex!
An important message from Dave Mason:
This is a shocking fact. EVERY SINGLE “YOUNG” PERSON IVE HOOKED UP WITH IN THE PAST YEAR WANTS IT BAREBACK. They want my dick in their CUNNY..RAW… That is FUCKED UP. I mean I get the desire and the fantasy BUT Im writing about this because its gone too far in my world so I feel if I don’t say something I”m slightly responsible. Im gonna keep it short cause nobody wants to hear it BUT all these kids are becoming HIV positive because they never saw AIDS HAPPEN. I DID! I was SO LUCKY I am in this WEIRD BUBBLE where I was too young to be having sex when it was DEVOURING the gay world and now Im too old to NOT KNOW BETTER, so the people above me and below me are all getting or have it. Yesterday I mentioned SEROCONVERTING to my friend who is 32 and he said “WHATS THAT?” WHATS THAT?!?!? It amazes me that someone not much younger has NO IDEA what that is. He doesn’t even know what someone looks like who has advanced aids, never saw the “buffalo hump”, and doesn’t know a person who has ever died of it. That in a way is GREAT, BUT young people USE A FUCKING CONDOM. BELIEVE ME you do NOT want HIV and its NOT CASUAL. Young people are all the ones getting it now because they don’t know thats its any different from Herpes. I saw an HIV awareness commercial with Harvey Whats his face I can’t think of right now, and he mentioned how HIV was DISFIGURING… the entire ad I don’t remember but the DISFIGURING part stuck because nobody says that and thats the part that scares me the most about it. So if I need to say that for it to stick I will. ITS DISFIGURING! Seriously every single younger person Ive had sex with wants it RAW, claims to be neg, and BELIEVES ME when I say Im NEGATIVE. I AM negative BUT THEY SHOULD NOT BELIEVE ME?! Every single one of them I have to be like “DO NOT TRUST PEOPLE?!” I had to go on the PEP treatment once because once I hooked up with a guy and TWICE he took off the condom while we were fucking and DIDNT TELL ME. Im SURE he was trying to give it to me. Its awful to think that but you do NOT take off a rubber and not tell someone TWICE after I specifically say DO NOT PUT IT IN WITHOUT A CONDOM. SO long story short use a condom and don’t be shady AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANT don’t trust anyone. There, Im done yelling at you now.
Join Sister Eden Asp and her sexy porn star friends Nick Moretti, Leo Forte and Element Eclipse, the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 14th for a “Do It Yourself Kink” demo nite at the Center for Sex and Culture. Sister Eden challenged Nick, Leo and Element to come up with two “DIY” sex toys each from everyday items you might find around the house. The guys will explain how they made and use their homemade kink toys, and share how they keep their kink play hot, safe and sane. Our partners over at the San Francisco STD Prevention Section will also be on hand offering free STD screening. Each person who takes part in screening will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win exciting prizes. More details to come…
The photos look like so much fun!
