How long has HDK been in business? The business was started in late 1998 and produced its first bareback film, BAREBACK BUDDIES in February 1998.
How did you come to start it? Actually the story is kind of unique. In 1998 my former lover and I started having monthly sex parties at our home in Palm Springs. Even though condoms were available it seemed that almost no one used them. The parties grew from just a few friends to more than 60 guys each month. We finally had to move them from our home to a nearby gay resort because they just kept growing in size. At the time I owned a business that produced safety training videos for industry and private corporations. At the end of one of the parties, some of us were sitting around relaxing and basking in the afterglow of some really great sex and one of the guys said to me; "you make videos, right"? I said "yes" and he said; "well, why don't you make bareback fuck videos?" My response was; "because I never thought of it." I had been making the training films since 1986, certainly knew how to do it, so I thought about it, did some research on the net to see if their was a market for bareback videos and it seemed that their was…….so, in late 1998 I incorporated the business in California and in February 1999 HDK produced their first two films and put them on the net to see what would happen. They were a huge hit and HDK has been producing bareback films ever since. Today I'm proud to say that we are the largest producer of bareback films in the world. We now have distributors all over the world and the company continues to grow in leaps and bounds. What about the parties? Well, I eventually bought a larger piece of property in the north end of Palm Springs. The property had a huge warehouse that was converted into a Dungeon and the parties continued their for many years with as many as 200 men attending each month from all over the world. As they say, those were the "good ol' days". The parties eventually came to an end as HDK continued to grow and the demands to produce more and more films finally meant that the parties had to come to an end.

I've forgotten my username and/or password…..what do I do? The fastest and simplest way is to go to our Retrieve Password page and complete the info. If you can't remember the info, then write to us by CLICKING HERE. Remember to give us your full name and username if you remember it. We cannot look up your membership using an email address since most guys have multiple email addresses.
I know that I am entering the correct username and/or password but it isn't letting me into the site…what gives? In most cases when that happens it is because you are entering either the password or the username incorrectly….they are case sensitive. So, if your user name is "big dick" and you enter it as "Big Dick", it will not let you into the site. If you are unsure as to how you entered it when you originally signed up, then see what to do above to have your username and password e-mailed to you. When writing, you must include your real name.
How do I go about applying to be in a film? Very easy, All you need to do is complete the form on the website to Become a Model or by snail mail with RECENT (within 30 days) photos of yourself. The photos should be a full frontal nude and a full rear nude and at least one face shot and a shot of your dick hard. Along with the pictures tell what you are into…..are you a top, bottom or versatile, and describe for us a fantasy sex scene. Also, tell us what type of man you are attracted to. Once we receive this information and if we think you have what it takes to be in one of our films, we will mail to you a model information form and a release to sign. We may also give you a call to talk with you about possible shoot dates. We apologize that we can't get back with every person who sends a picture to us, but we get so many requests that it would be impossible to respond to everyone……that's all we'd get done!
How do I get in contact with one of your models? We never release the names, addresses or phone number of our models. Just as we respect your confidentiality, we respect theirs also. Some of our models have agreed to have their own websites or email addresses listed on our website…and in many of those pages we have listed their email addresses with their permission. If there is a model who does not have their own website listed or does not have an email listed then it probably isn't possible to get in touch with him.
What is your product guarantee? We guarantee all of our products unconditionally against defects and will replace them free of charge. Defective products must be returned to us within 15 days of purchase. If you receive a defective DVD we will replace it for the same title.

Why bareback…? Why not just produce the standard gay adult DVD's like all the other companies? Easy question to answer. Our founder did'nt like the "mystery" condoms that magically appear in the standard gay films. One minute it's not there, and the next there it is. Many believe that a lot of "barebacking" is going on because guys are sick and tired of being preached at and feel that as adults they are free to do as they choose, as informed concenting adults. Same way for our films. We don't encourage unsafe sex, but we do say that as adults we are free to make our own decisions. We are free to make bareback videos and offer them to the public as a fantasy. If no market exist, we won't be in business long. If there is a market for bareback films, then obviously we are filling a need. Many of the guys who buy our films tell us that they buy them because it does fulfill a fantasy for them. Many other guys tell they buy them because they do in fact bareback in their private lives and that they are tired of seeing films made with condoms. So, as long as the demand is there, we will continue to provide them to our customers.
Don't you think that by making bareback films you are encouraging the practice of unsafe sex and thus the spread of HIV? No, not at all. Nor do we think that smoking grass leads to heroin addiction, or that watching an episode of Law and Order or CSI is going to make us go out and shoot someone so we can see first hand what the justice system really is like. Our films are sold to adults…..you know, grown ups, who have made the decision to watch bareback DVD's. Our videos are not going to coerce someone into going out and having unsafe sex. Simply watching a film is not going to change someone's mind regarding sex….whether to have it or not have it, nor is it going to change someone's mind as to the type of sex they are going to have. To say that it will, tends to lessen the intelligence of the viewer. At the beginning of each DVD we have a statement which says we do not encourage unsafe sex but we do believe that informed, consenting adults have the right to view whatever they want in the privacy of their own home. We also believe that if you are HIV negative, you should do everything possible to stay that way. We say that on every box cover and at the beginning of each DVD.
What about the guys in your DVD's, are they HIV+?
We do tell every performer during our initial conversation that they MUST assume that everyone who is in the film is in fact HIV+ and must consider that fact when deciding whether or not to be in one of our films. We also tell each model that they must discuss with their partner their HIV status and to decide what level of risk they are willing to take. Once they have spoken to each other, they then are required to come to the director to discuss what and how the scene will be conducted based on the decisions the models have made. We never knowingly expose an HIV negative person to HIV.
What about "bug-chasing" or "gift giving"? Frankly we think it's stupid. To knowingly want to become infected with HIV is just dumb. To knowingly infect someone with HIV is just plain wrong and sick. We do not allow "gift giving" or "bug chasing" on our set. But then again, that is only our opinion. What you do with your "fully informed, consenting sex partner in your private life is your business. But, we don't allow it on our set.
Guys, the bottom line is this. There is nothing to be ashamed of because of one's HIV status. Whether or not to use condoms is a decision that only you can make…We all have a responsibility to protect ourselves. If you are HIV negative, we would strongly encourage you NOT to bareback and to do everything you can to stay negative. HIV is not pretty. It is NOT curable and it is NOT under control. Even though we have meds today that are helping HIV positive guys to live longer, more productive lives, guys are STILL dying from this fucking disease……..but all of that being said, as a fully informed adult, you have the right to have whatever type of sex you choose in the privacy of your own home, providing your partner is also a fully informed adult.
