Several weeks ago, GayPornTimes linked to an Advocate article since removed and republished at the author’s blog, The Unabashed Queer’s Cut: Business Before Pleasure? — enough links yet? — that skids a little too close for comfort, apparently.

I wish I’d downloaded and saved the article in the edited form appearing on The Advocate’s website. (And to be honest, when it was removed, I thought it was that Regent Media wanted you to buy the magazine to read the content, or at least subscribe to the digital issue to read content that wasn’t in the current issue.) If any reader has it — the original form, not the version I linked to and is widely linked across the intertubes — please email it to me. It had a couple of prescient quotes that fit nicely with an piece I’ve been kicking around for a while on bareback porn. But alas, the piece was pulled, and now we rely on the version that has several errors that I don’t remember from the Advocate’s version, and most notably, the quote that I was most interested in has now changed as well:

Oh, the hypocrisy. Falcon “Classic Bareback” movies, compiled into convenient compilation form, on sale now!

More hypocrisy from Falcon on display

I guess what escapes them is that if there was ever a time when we’d actually see a seroconversion take place on screen, these films were made during that time.

At the predictable-down-to-the-minute GayVN awards, Raging Stallion AEBN won everything, including the lovely shoes worn by Mr. Mapa. Not that anyone expected a different outcome, but one note worth mentioning: Ricky “Stubby” Sinz as best top. Who knew 4 inches will get you an award in San Francisco!

And then there’s Michael Lucas. Grabbing the microphone. Saying something stupid. Not letting it drop there. Stop me when I’ve said something new.

Yes, they stuck their head further up their ass.

It seems that the bareback genie has been put back into the bottle, at least as far as the awards go. It seems the barebackers couldn’t give a shit, and the condom nazis weren’t going to tolerate it.

So the rumor going around now is that the 2010 awards will include bareback videos but require testing.

Testing… for what? If it’s HIV, we we all know that 80% of the models in ALL of gay porn are HIV positive. If GayVN is suggesting that the gay side follow the straight side of the biz, which effectively bans HIV+ performers, what are we going to do? Or, will there (continue to) be special dispensation for condom studios?

News that the GayVn awards will accept bareback content has leaked out as the marketing for the event begins. The question on everyone’s lips was “Would Chi Chi actually hand out an award to a bareback film?” How could she!!!

Ah, but the devil is always in the details as it seems that Miss Larry will be hand-picking the nominees herself based upon whether HIV testing was performed on the set. Several bareback companies such as HDK and Puppy have made statement about testing and serosorting of models, while most have said nothing publicly. How Miss Larry will determine this is anyone’s guess. But I don’t expect an onstage handshake between Chi Chi and Paul Morris anytime soon.
