In a study, 92 percent of the men said they had watched porn depicting bareback anal sex, and 70 percent of those revealed that viewing it led them to re-enact what they watched.

NEW YORK — Gay men who watch bareback porn are more likely to have risky sex, according to a new study by Columbia University and Public Health Solutions.

For it, 265 gay and bisexual men were surveyed after being recruited using Facebook, and had all watched porn in the last three months and lived within 50 miles of New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia or Washington

According to the findings, published in PLOS One, 92 percent of the men said they had watched porn depicting bareback anal sex, and 70 percent of those revealed that viewing it led them to re-enact what they watched.

Forty-eight percent said they believed watching bareback porn had contributed to them engaging in riskier sex, while 55 percent said that watching the porn had led them to seek sex afterwards. In contrast, the study found that men who watched porn with actors that used condoms participated in safer sex, PLOS One reports.

A mandate forcing porn actors to wear condoms has been passed by the Los Angeles City Council. However this has caused a lot of the industry to leave the city and film elsewhere.
