The State of California continues to push forward on the contentious issue of mandating all adult porn studios to have performers use condoms, not everyone is on board with the idea. While the initiative is intended to reduce the transmission of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections (STI’s), there has been resistance between the studios and models.
“I feel porn stars are sex icons,” explained gay porn model, Spencer Reed. “People do what they watch on screen. That’s where people learn from. As an icon, I have a responsibility.”
Spencer, who has been working in gay porn for the last five years, is an advocate for safer-sex in the porn industry. He belief is when people see that their favourite porn stars protecting themselves, they set a good example for others to do the same.
“In today’s day and age, there’s a lot of things out there,” Spencer said, referring to HIV/AIDS and STI’s. “I’m always safe. I have safe sex as often as possible.”
Spencer further explained that he does enjoy unprotected sex, but he is careful to only do it when he is in a committed relationship.
