British porn producer Icreme has agreed to stop filming bareback scenes.

The company claims to produce more adult material than any other in the UK.

Icreme told the BBC that all their porn performers would use condoms from now on.

This evening BBC news programme Newsnight broadcast an investigation into bareback porn and the possible link with performers contracting HIV.

“The vast majority of porn nowadays is done without condoms,” Icreme claims on www.icreme.co.uk, its website.

NOTE: Website contains sexually explicit images.

“To operate safely, all of our models must have a test every 28 days.

“We pay for an NHS test, which conclusively proves a negative HIV status within the last 48 hours. We will not tolerate anyone who acts in an unsafe way in their private lives.”

There is no information about how they monitor the behaviour of their models.

In a statement to the BBC they said that all models will use condoms from now on.

A man convicted last week of inciting a child into pornography was a former Icreme employee.

48-year-old Rufus Ffoulkes, of Alexander Road in Lowestoft, was sentenced to two years and eleven months in prison.

Floulkes recruited young men for his homemade porn films from the website Gaydar, one brought along a 16-year-old boy.

He paid the teenager £500 to appear in a photoshoot then directed him in a bareback porn film unconnected with Icreme.

Ffoukles was banned from using the internet to recruit young men and from working with children.

He was also sentenced to 12 months, to run concurrently, for deception.

The cheques he wrote to pay his porn performers bounced.

Last year Ffoulkes issued a statment to Boyz magazine about Icreme models being infected with HIV.

Clyde, a 20-year-old Londoner who made bareback porn and subsequently found out he had contracted HIV, recently spoke to PinkNews.co.uk.

He said that was approached on the internet site Gaydar just after his 18th birthday.

He had had a profile on the site since he was 16.

“I can’t remember exactly what they said but they were two guys who were working together and they both messaged me several times until I eventually agreed to meet up and do an ‘interview,'” he explained.

“That was basically just masturbating in front of a camera. They wanted me to come back and do a shoot.”

The porn producers asked him to bring along two forms of identification to verify his age.

“They told me that most of the work would be bareback, and that they would normally check certificates from GUM clinics.”

On the various shoots he took part in during his short on-screen career he noticed laxity in the ad hoc system of checking the HIV status of performers.

“I presented a certificate about half the time.

“They would normally take your word for it. At my local clinic you have to pay £25 to get a certificate.”

He was told everyone else was HIV negative, but never saw anyone else’s certificates.
