Life After Porn :: Controversial Blue Bailey Talks HIV And Barebacking
In Treasure Island Media's shocker of an XXX film "Viral Loads," gay porn star Blue Bailey allows a jar of white liquid to be poured into his body. The film horrified as many people as it titillated. Viral Loads has been accused of fetishizing HIV.
Bailey, 27, who is now in the process of moving away from the porn biz as he prepares to attend law school, spoke to SFGN intelligently and matter-of-factly about his status as an HIV positive porn star with no qualms about indulging in risky on-camera behavior.
Tell us about your off-camera self?
Unfortunately, I was born and raised in Las Vegas. I hated living there, and moved to go to school in San Francisco as soon as I graduated. In terms of coming out, I see three stages: Being gay, testing positive and doing porn. My family has always been open minded, so coming out as gay was a non-issue. My mom goes out to the gay clubs with her gay best friends.
Does your family know that you did porn?
I never intended on telling my family that I did porn. I broke up with a guy, and he decided to get in touch with my dad afterwards and told him about my other job. I preemptively reached out to my mom so she could hear the news from me. Again, my family is very open, and while this was not their preferred route for me, they are accepting and supportive of whatever I do. My mom was even my date this last year for the Hustlaball in Las Vegas.
What brought you to porn? Did you enjoy the sex or was it just work?
A fuck buddy of mine did porn, and he approached me about doing a scene for the company he worked for. For the most part I enjoy the sex, but at times it can certainly be work. My last [partner] would vacillate from monogamous to open, back and forth, and porn certainly offered a way to have sex with hot guys outside of my relationship. As I switch gears away from porn, I'm really only picking scenes that seem fun and enjoyable to me. I've accomplished everything I set out to do in porn. I don't regret my porn career, but the reality of the situation is that others may not be as accepting of this career as I am.
Do you have second thoughts about appearing in films of that nature as opposed to films with condoms?
