The Maverick Men Are A Colossal Illusion! (Just Not How You Think)
To tell you the truth, I’d always thought that there was something fishy about the Maverick Men. Cole and Hunter started out doing XTube videos for kicks, but when they became the most popular guys on the site (and started getting guys asking if they could join) things began to change. They started taking on thirds (and fourths). But the boys use testing over condoms, and given my experiences with testing, I assumed it was just a euphemism.
They were in LA a few weeks ago and I caught up with them. Couldn’t have been more charmed. And I couldn’t have been more wrong.
But to the condoms (or lack thereof). How could they test? Half the guys seemed to be guys they picked up on the street, or met in the bathroom of a club. Turns out it’s all an illusion. Not the testing, though — but the casual hook-ups themselves. According to Cole and Hunter, nothing is as spontaneous as it looks. Each hook-up starts with pictures. Or Manhunt. And emails. Then Skype conversations to determine if the prospective hook-up is nutters. Then more conversations. Then testing and proof of testing (the boys get tested once a month regardless). And if they’re suspicious, or don’t have time, they use condoms. It’s certainly not fool proof, but given what I’ve seen in other areas of this business, they came across as oddly responsible.
And they stemmed my other objection: they don’t pay models. While this is hardly a workable business model for everyone, it also removes the most loathsome aspect of bareback porn — the incentive to risk your health for money. You may say that it’s still dangerous, and you may be right. But in some ways, it renders an otherwise public decision to the status of a personal matter.
The second illusion: they’re not swingers. They don’t have sex outside the relationship, unless its for the camera. So even though I love them, unless I take after Robert Chandler, they won’t have sex with me. It seems almost perverse, doesn’t it? Maybe they were giving me a snow job. Unless I get on camera with them, that’s all I’m ever going to get from them.
