Another studio goes BB?? WTF?

This is really getting depressing. Just checked out the trailer for a soon-to-be-released video on NextDoorBuddies ... and there is an in-your-face (well, actually, in the other end) bareback scene advertised!

 

NDB had been one of the few makers of "quality porn" - by which i mean genuinely goodlookiing men (IMHO), decent camera work/lighting and editing, decent sound , etc - that was still doing all condom stuff. And they have also done just about the best job (way better than CF ... other than in their Bi 3ways) of filming real straight sex for a gay audience.

 

And now, within days of one of their stars (Rod Daily) announcing that he is HIV+, they start filming BB?? WTF indeed!

 

What are the producers and performers thinking? That russian roulette (no offense to russians) is hot fun?

 

Can someone please help me understand why this is happening? I presume that studios feel driven by market pressure. But if that pressure is real, where is it coming from? What is the psychology of this? I really don't get it.

 

Will it take another wave of widespread infections to make the point to a new generation?? I wish there was something we older gents could do to save a lot of kids a lot of the pain, suffering, and heartache!

SC I completely agree. I think however, that any business is driven by demand. The porn industry is like any other business. You produce what sells. My take on it is that most of us here, not all, but a large percentage of those who are most puzzled by BB in film, are older, and went through those dark days when HIV was visibly killing tens of thousands of guys. With the progress they have made in HIV, people announcing their status and then seemingly going on to live normal healthy lives (though friends of mine who are in that group will quickly tell you that is anything but) I think there is a whole generation of young men who just don't realize or don't seem to care about the consequences...most I believe, think that HIV is something that can be controlled.

 

I am as baffled as you are, as to the attitude that younger gay men have in general towards HIV. Not all mind you, but far too many. Friends of mine who are HIV+ will quickly tell you that although they are living longer, more normal lives, that their status makes them more susceptible to all kinds of infections and diseases. One of my friends who is positive and in his 40's was in the hospital recently with an infection for almost a couple of months and the recovery is another 6 months plus. He almost died. The doctors have said that had he not been positive that another person his age would have been out of the hospital in a matter of days. Huge difference.

 

Thanks for the post SC, and for giving all of us a heads up on NDB.

the greatest beauty is

Organic wholeness, the wholeness of life and things,

the divine beauty of the universe.

Love that, not man apart from that,

or else you will share man’s pitiful confusions,

or drown in despair when his days darken."

BVB..I agree with you and appreciate the post from SC.... I too am amazed by the attitudes of some of our younger brethren. I too lived through a period of time when many friends, some who were bi and married and had kids, died of AIDS, and their spouses, professional colleagues and many of their friends did not know they were bi or gay but married to a woman. These things run in cycles, but peddling gay porn bare backing is IMHO a travesty and I wish it were a crime. But if it sells, I guess it will get produced and distributed.

deej is 100% correct as is big val. I can report FROM THE FRONT LINES OF THE BIZ that bareback requests are skyrocketing faster than the national debt. It seems as if the community (both out and closeted) has decared victory in the war vs hiv and aids......... so why do i still read obituaries?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
