Brad McGuire and James Roscoe (pictured from left) are a "long-term, promiscuous, bareback couple," according to a press release posted by The Sword (possibly NSFW). Roscoe is HIV-positive, and McGuire is HIV-negative.

Now that's a shocker. This guy must have been in dozens of bareback videos. Is it possible that he's one of those rare immunity cases?

Which leads me to a question - do those who have the HLA B57 gene, which allegedly makes them immune to HIV, will still be tested positive after an exposure?

Studio Reups HIV-Positive Porn Star

Porn studio Treasure Island Media announced last week that it has extended its contract with an HIV-positive actor who specializes in bareback sex and his HIV-negative partner.

Brad McGuire and James Roscoe (pictured from left) are a "long-term, promiscuous, bareback couple," according to a press release posted by The Sword (possibly NSFW). Roscoe is HIV-positive, and McGuire is HIV-negative.

The move comes after a porn actor tested positive for HIV last month, shaking up the industry, based in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. The positive test temporarily shut down production in some studios, though none of the performers the actor worked with tested positive for the virus.

These guys are a good example that you cannot look at someone and tell they have HIV.  I think the HIV poz guy looks healthier than the HIV neg guy.

Of course we do. That's why I became HIV+ in the first place... to have that chisled, outdoorsy look as I hold my poodles. :)

some guys are really lucky.  I know of a former bugchaser who claims it took him two years.  Another barebacker I know us "poz friendly" and claims he still hasn't been infected.  There are others who will go to their graves swearing that their risk was minimal/nonexistant.  My guess is that we still have a lot to learn about why some people seem so much luckier than others.  I would really love to see a study explaining this.
