If you haven’t had an opportunity to complete the brief survey about my readers, please do it now. It will only take a moment.
I’m flattered that a few of you took the time to go ahead and give me a little more feedback in paragraph form. As more of them come in, I’ll be updating this.
Adding My Two Cents
Rob wrote on 28 June 2012:
Hey Mr. Bentson, just throwing in my 2 cents worth.
I have a lot of bookmarked sites that I check daily (either before or after work) but most of them just post and re-post the same pictures over and over. With iBi there’s some real writing and thought involved, and honestly you’re far more articulate than most of the people online.
I really don’t agree with your stealthing position (popular as those posts seem to be), why not just be up front? Trust me, where I live all you’d have to do is walk into a bar and announce your name and there’d be at least five pre-lubed bottoms lined up in a row waiting for you (yeah, I’d probably be one of them).
As for improving your site the only thing I can think of is, it would be great to have an archive feature to randomly check out previous articles (sometimes I want to read about deep thoughts, sometimes I just want to read about raw stuff).
My only complaint/issue is: Where are all the comments? I KNOW a lot of people read iBi (that’s just logic since I can type a few particular keywords and “i blast inside” pops up) so why don’t more people say something? Are they afraid of being outed or something? I don’t get it (what’s the point of being online unless you have something to offer or add?)
Anyway, thanks for all the fascinating writing, hope all is good with you.
A note from Mark: I agree, Rob. Where are all the comments? I do receive several but they tend to be via Twitter or through my BarebackRT profile . For example, my entry on attending the first CumUnion in Atlanta solicited four or five responses on June 27, the day it went up. No one commented here. I ask for them to consider posting them live. Why don’t you get things rolling, Rob? Comment! As for archives, if you follow me on Twitter , a few times during the day, one of the almost 400 archived piece are randomly selected and tweeted out. And if you don’t want to join Twitter, just check out those recent tweets as one of the items in the left column. Thanks for the comment!
Fan and Friend for Life

I absolutely love your blog. It’s the first thing I go to on the ‘net and the last before I go to bed — or even in bed.
Your encounters with all those people are the best part of the site, especially the stealthing ones. It’s hot. Each time I read them, I wished they always had pictures of them. Before, during and after your DNA gut wash
Keep up the great work and you’ll have at least one fan for life, not to mention a member of BBBH for life and facebook friend for life too.
Thanks But No Thanks
Pedro wrote on 24 June 2012:
I read your blog mainly because you’re an interesting guy. Your mind interests me probably more than your sexual exploits (and why I chose your dark history as my favourite subject, though it’s pretty horrifying topic).
It’s a sexy group of stories nonetheless, even if I don’t agree with the stealthing thing. Barebacking is something people do out of choice in my view.
Still, we exchanged some words before on how people exercise their choice by not caring or thinking or trusting too much, and I understand your point of view, so no judgement.
But I did choose “thanks, but no thanks” on the possibility of sleeping with you.

Thanks for the survey, Mark… interesting results thus far.
Just three points came to mind for me:
- Movies: I certainly can’t afford a subscription to the theatre, so I had a quandary saying what I felt about movies for the survey… I fucking love porn, and the more forced the BB fuck is the better, but need it free, ok if you keep the theatre for full length films though.
- Membership of BBBH: I don’t know if I’m a member or not?! I think you treat me as a member on twitter; but I decline from putting #BBBH in my blurb as it’s a bit too public for me (work, family etc. may search and discover TMI for me) however I def want a wristband and am open in by gay circles and such to broadcast it… so I said NO, but a wannabe YES.
- Age: You should facilitate members from at least 16 to join/participate fully, as in Europe this is the consensus on legal age for gay sex (though it varies from 12 to 17.) Put something like “…in your jurisdiction” rather than stating an age? but provide the fully legal guys here to have an option that doesn’t make them feel like they’re declaring themselves as illegals ‘sssh… I’m underage’ kind of category.
Thanks for all your horny content, and look forward to keeping your tab open in my browser for years to cum!! hehe.
Thanks for Having a Site That’s Not Just About Sex

Love watching bareback porn and reading bareback stories. Cruising sites online is fun too and I get off several times a day. However, sometimes after getting off so much or in between, I like to learn more about how people feel towards sex or hear personal stories, especially sex-related.
I don’t bareback much. I’ve only done it a few times and nervous to do it anymore even. But that doesn’t stop me jacking off to anything bareback-related.
But blogs and sites — like this one — where the webmaster is so open about his bareback lifestyle and not ashamed or afraid about what he is does is inspiring and makes me feel good. Thank you for having a site that’s not just about sex and bareback but guidance, stories, reviews on places, and other things as well.
Nice Talking Back

Nice to talk back for a change!
Again, if you haven’t, be sure to complete the survey. When you do, you’re able to see the results immediately.
