I think all that stuff is all bullshit. Designed to shock and outrage people, which is exactly what it does. If it was real it would get stamped on, but evidently forums like that have been going for years untouched.
Reminds me of what you read on the net of so-called real life sex stories. All complete rubbish. They used to publish books full of crap like that.
As far as actual bareback is concerned, I am sure it goes on a lot, but people who discuss it are mostly in denial. Even in these threads there are lots of self righteous posts, with a couple of notable exceptions. I'm not advocating bareback at all, quite the opposite, but I'm not so stupid as to think it's not common practice. I've had it offered to me several times, including an attempt to just do it, and if you do a search of AW a surprisingly high percentage of nearly 8% offer it. That's 1 in 13! Even if you suppose that half of them are fakes, that's an awful lot. I'm sure there's an ongoing trade of WG's and clients who habitually bareback with each other, and occasionally innocents will stumble across it.
I'd rather hear the true facts and how likely it really is to pick up an infection. Such as from OWO. It scares me a lot, especially as I am allergic to many antibiotics, and the mere thought of getting something like gonhorrea is horrifying.
