  2. Fenrox sounds exactly like the seedy HIV poz dude who is offended and feels discriminated against for your refusing to take his load inside you. I have dated HIV poz men several times who are all good moral men who refused to pass on the virus. I wish all Poz men. were like my exes.

  3. I so disdain the judgments in this string of comments. I don't know Josh Weston or his work. What I do know is that NONE of us is in a position or has the right to judge him. I get so sick of these self righteous persons who post such comments. It leads me to wonder when I read the virulence of their words, what is behind them. Are they envious of Josh's good looks, his obvious appeal to other people, the supposed glamour of his life? Take care of your own business and leave this gentleman, yes gentleman to rest in peace.

  4. Due to the ever increasing meth plague, the number of emaciated barebacking boys around in saunas and sex clubs now makes it look like 1982 all over again. It just seems to be getting worse and worse. Meth is the best friend HIV ever had.

  5. Negative commentary is just Anon commentary given a temporary name to suffice for its inadequate nature.
    Chad Hunt, I didn't know who u were until today, (Damn you're a hot human) and I wish you well. You speak the truth brother. Those who listen to your message are those who realize how valid it is. Others - well, ya cannot win them all...

  6. On the other hand, one of the latest studies is showing that the anti-viral meds are so effective that a person's smoking now endanger him more than the virus. Go figure… It's just like my grandmother Nana Roseannadanna used to say, "if it's not one thing it's another…"

  7. FENROX, unsafe sex is never safe & to imply that HIV is a manageable disease so it is okay to have unsafe sex is a terrible mindset. I witnessed firsthand the onset of the plague years & nothing was hotter than the later years of the 70s by far, but looking back, I so very wish we had wised up earlier and not taken it to the extreme. No, I am not self-hating. I am alive and unwilling to romanticize the past, which was incredibly bleak and horrific. Young people are giving up their healthy lives for a fuckhead oblivion of meaningless empty sex. No lover is worth contracting HIV disease. Sorry for the off-topic, but you stirred up some anguish in me.

  9. I remember seeing "Josh Weston" on Market St. around 2000 in the Castro neighborhood. I thought what a spectacularly good looking man. The next time I saw him, maybe a year later, he was built up (maybe with steroids?). He had a movie star quality, the look of someone the porn industry would love too. He was a human being who brought a lot pleasure to a lot of people. Sadly, gone too soon.

  10. It's sad to see someone die so young. I think the issue is that there are a lot of young gay guys who see bareback videos and don't view it as a fantasy but as a real possibility and feel encouraged to engage in bareback. There are no public HIV prevention education campaigns now like there used to be and so people don't think it's a big deal anymore when it is. For the first time in two decades new HIV infection rates are going up rather than down. That is significant and should make all of us concerened. People aren't making anti-bareback comments to be judgemental but to get people to wake up and realize it's going to be 1982 all over again if we don't get it together.

  11. HIV is still a death sentence. It may take 20 years instead of 5, but the disease is incurable and fatal. Even the minority who respond well to treatment have their lives cut short do to the effects of inflammation and the toxicity of the drugs. Please never have intercourse without a condom except with an uninfected long-term partner. The rate of new infections among gay American men is increasing rapidly year-over-year.

  12. Thank you Chad Hunt, your kind words about Josh are touching and have given this topic of Hiv a face we can all see in the mirror. No one is without owing some part of this part of human sexuality.Lets pray for a cure to this disease.Have you seen what kind of money is going into Hiv/Aids research and yet we still don't have a cure?th kind of love we preach and expect from out straight brothers and sisters. Remember straight people get AIDS too.
    Lets lean to be real men and practice

  13. Really Geoffrey? When you see the outward visible signs of AIDS, does that seem like a condition you would find acceptable for the next 30 years? And what happens if the drugs stop working, or some new African virus comes along that isn't afraid of our chemicals? Stop kidding yourself.

  14. Oh. I didn't think people died of AIDS anymore... I'm sure this is only seen as collateral damage. The industry approves of barebacking so it must be safe, right? They even have self-serving awards shows with categories like Best Bareback video, so it must be safe, right? Not to worry. I'm sure they will have a barebacking montage at the next event in honor of his death. Assh*les. (pun not intended)

  16. Be a Responsible ADULT and
    Take Responsibility FOR ALL YOUR Choices!
    Use Precautions, Play SAFE ONLY.
    Don't Throw Away Precious Human LIFE away for a few moments of fleeting meaningless pleasure
    spent with SELFISH people that
    ULTIMATELY don't give a damn about YOU !!!
    Or YOU will pay the Ultimate Price and Hurt Many others in the process !!!!

  17. Chad Hunt: thank you for your amazing post. totally agree.

    I'm sure that no one here can cast the first stone...Live your life the way you want to, and respect the right of others to do the same. He brought a lot of people some pleasure and a moment of happiness. Can you all say the same?

  20. Porn is great, but barebacking is just stupid
    We've all made mistakes, but to make a "profession" of unsafe sex just enhances/ensures the likelihood of seroconversion.
