Which Kind Of Porn Do You Really Watch: Bareback Or Condom?

Posted May 2, 2014 by with 35 comments

helix studios barebackSince we launched this site last December, I’ve posted about bareback porn and condom porn pretty equally. For my own viewing purposes, I don’t really have a preference, so long as the guys are good performers, the sex is filmed well, and—if it’s bareback—no one’s fetishizing the spread of diseases. But, I don’t think I’ve ever asked you guys what you like, and I’m curious.

Which do you prefer to watch: Bareback porn or condom porn? If your preference is too complex for a poll, feel free to share in the comments.


Depending on how you voted, please enjoy one of this week’s updates from Helix Studios, which is one of the few studios regularly producing both bareback and condom porn. First, Jessie Montgomery fucks Travis Walker bareback:

For the condom scene, big-dicked newcomer Kody Knight plows Dylan Hall:

    I watch both condom-ed and bareback porn based off solely how the performers chose to perform their scene. Chemistry is chemistry and if the performers don’t have it, the viewer will feel that disconnect and rightfully so go onto a scene where they do feel the joy of male-on-male sexual intercourse.

  • Cosmic

    I can’t watch bareback porn because I always end up thinking,was that the load that guy gets HIV from,weird I know but I can’t help it.

  • GiftHorse

    I watch both. For me, real chemistry and actually wanting to have sex on camera are the biggest things to get me to watch, it’s just now those things are more likely to be found in bareback porn instead of condom.

  • Rico Ruiz

    I watch both. For me, it’s about fantasy. I don’t think of porn, condom or bareback, as something real, just “actors” acting. If they are good actors, I can get off, all by myself, without the fear of receiving an STD.

  • Roary

    Bareback, preferably with my favorite performer’s…

  • sbd

    Only condom porn, as it reflects what I personally practice. For much the same reason, I don’t watch fisting or scat videos.

  • robirob

    Bareback when I trust the studio’s professionalism in that regard (Sean Cody, Chaosmen) and certain performers (Mick Lovell, Dolph Lambert, and other BelAmi guys, even though I think George Duroy sounds like a douche and sketchy when it comes to STD transmition risks).

  • Ed Woody

    I prefer condom porn, for ethical reasons. I would rather that all porn still be condom, as I think that is a necessary example that no-one else is setting, and I will continue to rant on the subject for as long as I breathe.

    However, I recognise that the horse has already bolted as regards the increasing acceptance of unsafe sex in porn. I wish it were not so, but it is. I am prepared to watch the trailers at least if they feature men I find attractive and I don’t get the feeling I’m watching people commit suicide (because oddly enough snuff films don’t get me hard).

    I will only give actual money to condom producers, however, and I won’t watch anything by the repulsive worst-of-humanity disease spreaders whose names I refuse to say. Those people make my skin crawl.

  • Tom

    I watch both. unfortunately some of my favorite performers don’t do bareback but I wouldn’t mind watching them. I do watch TIM and other bb studios, but I don’t really care about those guys because they obviously don’t care about themselves. But I’d be uncomfortable seeing some popular guys exposing themselves to HIV etc.

  • Colorful Kent

    Too me about whether the guys are gay or fake. I don’t give my money to gay4pay anymore. I find bareback more real and less G4P. I’m starting to appreciate some of the hot stars of condom porn like Gabriel Clark, but I’m picking about truly straight guys like Johnny Rapid who makes me sick. Do a poll on that -gay vs. G4P? I don’t think we have to watch supposed “straight” guys to have a masculine fantasy. There are many hot masculine gay guys?

    • Colorful Kent

      The question “Would you rather a guy in a male/male porn scene a masculine gay guy or a straight guy pretending to enjoy it?”

  • Condom or no-condom, who gives a crap, just show me hot, sexy guys getting it on!

    • JoshChicago

      Gilead loves people like you. Congratulations! Let’s just hope they’re there for you some day. Hopefully without other required interventional pharmaceuticals.

      • MH Cressman

        Thank God for Truvada! If every gay man was on it, HIV would be much less of an issue in America.

        • JoshChicago

          the spawn of Sarah Palin lives.

          Please edit your comment to:

          “Thank God for Truvada! If every gay man gave their life savings to pharmaceutical companies instead of employing simple methods to prevent transmission, HIV would be much less of an issue in America.”

          Your idea is unrealistic and classist.

          HIV would be less of an issue in America if pharmaceutical companies did not have the obligation to increase shareholder profits, and instead were incentivized or mandated to produce treatment medications and cures at costs affordable to those living at or below the poverty line.

          Not every gay man is well off enough to afford such an expensive medication.

          • MH Cressman

            Truvada is available through most private insurance + through Medicaid/state-based federal healthcare programs. It’s really not as difficult to acquire as people say it is. I have it through the Oregon Health Plan. My doctor didn’t even know it existed.

          • McM.

            When addressing an issue that affects a wide demographic, it becomes necessary to consider solutions which can be applied by people across economic and social classes, as well as cultures. It is the reason HIV and sex education has taken the form we’ve seen over the past two decades; it requires habit but the practices of awareness and protection were developed to by employed by people of all means and backgrounds.

            Pop a pill – at an exorbitant cost or lowered by a third party – does not do this. Again, it is unrealistic and classist to propose a solution based on circumstances and resources available to a narrow (and shrinking) segment of the population and attempt to apply it to those without the same means. There are millions who are unemployed and simply don’t have insurance, and those with insurance have no guarantee of proper and continued coverage. Not to mention the transient and disproportionately LGBT homeless. From what I see, your comments do not serve these and other populations.

          • MH Cressman

            Millions who are unemployed typically have access to their state’s health insurance program thanks to the Affordable Care Act. Anyone on food stamps is automatically enrolled. You’re not realizing how accessible Truvada is now.

            But it does come with a free #TruvadaWhore t-shirt.

          Spoken while wearing a Condoms Are For Pussies shirt from the Charlie Harding collection.

        • ThatsEnoughGravy

          You wanna amend that to “Thank God for Valtrex” too? Because herpes—which you probably know is chronic and incurable—is super easy to pick up from barebacking. And, I guess, thank God for dermatologists, since anal and genital warts—also chronic and incurable—are super easy to spread barebacking. Yep, barebacking is the shiz, man.

  • Jace

    Where they work in a controlled environment such as Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher, I’m OK with bareback. However, watching Treasure Island or SX videos is akin to watching a snuff movie.

    • MH Cressman

      TIM is a controlled environment as well. Poz guys are matched with poz guys; neg with neg. Sometimes they mix, but anyone who is HIV+ and undetectable (on meds regularly) has 0% chance of transmission. TIM follows the rules like any other bareback studio.

      • JoshChicago

        months ago your statement might have stirred uncontrolled and frenzied comments here. Now, most ppl will probably and simply dismiss you as being Michael Lucas-ish – without the alimony or models to perform, of course. Even he, was someone, once.

        • MH Cressman

          Or you could read actual statistics and recent scientific studies about HIV transmission and the success rate of PrEP. And Truvada, by the way, is more or less required for porn performers to take these days, regardless if they do condom or bareback porn. Keep pretending like you know anything about the industry, though!

      • Jace

        My issue with TIM is that they deliberately choose performers who look like they’re either living with full blown AIDS or have major drug addictions. It’s truly horrible.

        • MH Cressman

          And that’s fine. To each his own. I’m not glorifying their model choices either. However, Blue Bailey is fucking hot.

        • Cosmic

          And that they seem to worship HIV and fetishize poz semen,just look at that nasty Blue Bailey jar of yellowed nasty jizz scene.

  • MH Cressman

    Bareback porn is the best.

  • JoshChicago
  • GN

    You ever check out Craigslist and notice the inordinate (and perhaps disturbing) amount of men who state that they are willing to forgo using a condom if the guy is attractive enough? Do only ugly people spread STI’s?

  • Odetofear

    Mostly condom porn, the only bareback i watch is Sean Cody and Bel ami. I agree with @Jace, in regards to most of bb porn models, they look kind of unhealthy,

  • Robbo

    Bareback all the way. My dick hasn’t seen a condom in years (LTR) so I have no wish to see them in my porn either.
