Simply put, BB is an acronym for Bareback.

Barebacking is anal sex without the use of condoms. It has become more and more common on dating and hookups for guys to ask for BB sex, as the availability of anti-HIV medications has risen.

You may see “Negative on PreP” on a person’s profile to indicate that they are potentially up for condomless sex.

The rise of BB could also be linked to the rise in bareback porn being filmed by studios.

After the rise of AIDs and HIV in the gay community during the 80s and 90s condomed sex was advocated by community leaders and health professionals as a way to combat the spread of HIV.

In recent years, however, with the availability of PrEP for “at-risk” communities, condom use is no longer seen, by some, as entirely necessary, particularly in the fight of ending new HIV infections.
