Learning from others as we explore the world of bug chasing and gift giving provides us with a unique level of insight and is also a great way to help us navigate our way through a subject that can often feel confusing and overwhelming due to the serious nature of being attracted to a lifelong virus that has no current cure. I. Que Grande hosts his own podcast called Demystifying Gay Porn and one of his segments is called Open Lines, which is the perfect place to learn more about those who appear on his show through interviews that are well structured and always very interesting to listen to.

I. Que Grande started as an editor for Dark Alley Media and helped launch the studio’s Raw Fuck Club brand, which incorporates a biohazard symbol into its logo, although this does not indicate that everyone appearing in their videos is HIV-positive, it’s simply a choice of branding that’s bold. The biohazard symbol can also be associated with barebacking, which is what Raw Fuck Club is all about, so this branding makes perfect sense. I. Que Grande currently works as a producer for Treasure Island Media and he’s also an award winning director, not to mention being the host of an impressive podcast featuring gay porn performers, where he puts the industry spotlight on those who have some great insight to share.

Season 3 Episode 12 of Open Lines “The Existent “Poz” Fetish” was released on February 26, 2022, where I. Que Grande interviewed a gift giver using the pseudonym Raw Bull. Raw Bull was prolific on social media in 2021 and 2022, but he experienced some issues with his social media accounts being shut down, with his first Twitter account @Raw_Bull getting shut down with a following of 5,000, then his second account @Raw_Bull2 was subject to review after a complaint at 3,000 followers, although his account continued to remain active for a while, but was shut down again not long after this, most likely due to open discussions about intentional HIV transmission. Raw Bull also appeared in a bareback video at Black Breeders along with Bailey Winter, where the scene was described as “The sexy Bull then fucks Bailey’s fuzzy hole raw and gives him 2 Poz loads!” with the hashtags #poz and #charged included in the scene description.

I do know Raw Bull’s real name, but he hasn’t included this level of detail in any of his social media posts, so I will respect his privacy by referring to him as Raw Bull throughout this article. I held off for quite some time before publishing this article, as Raw Bull has gone quiet since the deletion of his Twitter accounts and I was hoping he would come back so I could interview him myself to gain some further insight into his life personally and also as a prolific barebacker and gift giver. Due to his open and candid views about being pro-poz, Raw Bull has struggled to maintain a presence on social media platforms, as people have complained about his accounts and decisions have been made to shut down his accounts most likely due to this.

Raw Bull is a gift giver, but he revealed in his interview that he wasn’t an active bug chaser who was intentionally wanting to become HIV-positive, he was simply a guy who loved having bareback sex and he knew the risks involved and became infected as a result, which is an outcome he fully accepted and seems to have embraced. Raw Bull knows who infected him and revealed it was someone he met on Jack’d who was upfront and honest with him about being HIV-positive and also detectable, which didn’t stop him from having sex with him condom-free and not being on PrEP, knowing that he could become infected with HIV from their sexual encounter. Raw Bull was 29 when he was interviewed in 2022 and he revealed that he became HIV-positive 5 or 6 years earlier, which would have made him about 23 or 24 at the time he was infected.

Raw Bull stated he has not started taking HIV medication since becoming infected, as his body is managing the virus without any significant changes to his viral load or CD4 count. He went on to say that after he became HIV-positive, his sexual urge increased 10-fold, which is consistent with scientific evidence regarding this, although this is not the case for everyone. Raw Bull said that when he became infected, he didn’t feel any sickness, just a slight fever, then after he got tested, the result revealed his HIV-positive status, which he figured was a possibility after getting fucked raw by a detectable HIV-positive person.

When asked whether Raw Bull considered bug chasing as a fetish, he responded by saying “To me, not a fetish, I actually have been passing on my virus to many guys that really wanted to be infected.” Raw Bull revealed that he received between 80 to 100 messages on social media each day, with many guys hitting him up to poz them. Some travelled from Texas to New York City, where he passed it on and he also receives messages from guys in Europe who want it too. Raw Bull proudly shared videos and pictures of himself having bareback sex with guys and he has also posted screenshots from Telegram and WhatsApp on his social media account with conversations he’s had with bug chasers seeking the gift from him, some of which have been included in this article.

Raw Bull started out as a bottom, but now considers himself to be mainly a top and he’s 100% open and honest about being HIV-positive detectable with those who want to hook up with him. Raw Bull also revealed that he considers HIV to be a part of gay culture and our dynamic. In 2020, Raw Bull stated that he had encounters with over 300 guys, and in 1 week at the end of 2020, he met 10 guys and admitted to one that he was out of nut. He describes sex like fire, where his conversations are like gasoline, so once the guys physically connect with each other, it’s like an explosion.

As bug chasing is often seen as secretive or underground, Raw Bull reaffirmed this by saying that bug chasing is not rare, it’s just not talked about and often this comes down to shame or worrying about what other people might think about those who are into it. Raw Bull said he does not have any malicious intent when he infects other people with HIV and it’s all about having fun and not trying to punish others for himself becoming infected. Revealing more about when he was infected, Raw Bull said knowing the person fucking him was HIV-positive and detectable was all about the pleasure and it was an amazing feeling as they were raw dogging and being aware of what could happen during their sexual encounter.

I had hoped to be able to talk to Raw Bull before publishing this article so I could ask him some additional questions, but it looks like the continued deletion of his social media accounts has resulted in him taking a break from social media and being in the public eye at this time, but perhaps he’s still finding other methods to hook up with guys more discreetly in the meantime. If he reaches out to me, I will happily update this article to make it more comprehensive. I. Que Grande did say that this was a tough interview for him, but he still remained respectful throughout, so if you have 39 minutes and 27 seconds available, press play on the video below to start tuning in.

This is a great article. In 2015, in NYC, I actually met rawbull on scruff and had several great encounters with him While hiv/bug chasing was never part of the conversation, we both did share a love of raw, bareback sex that we had several times. We were both consenting adults and knew the risk, and since hearing his podcast interview, I’ve been hoping to meet up with him again. I followed him on Twitter and was sad when his account was deleted. I hope re emerges and that this helps end some of the stigma.

Most poz guys in Australia seem to be on Meds – which is a good thing for their health, but not necessarily a good thing for chasers.

Thanks for writing this article Jason. I think it would be excellent if RawBull contacts you.

Great article & video 🙂 Love listening to Raw Bull’s perspective. He’s super hot too, I’d love to get pozzed from him. Hopefully he re-surfaces on social media somewhere.

Beautiful man, and any chaser would be proud to get converted into the poz brotherhood by Mr. RawBull ( this is the real rawbull, not that fake-poz guy who went by a similar handle).

Sure about all this? On Telegram I’ve read posts that he isn’t positive at all and that his self-portrayal as a “gift giver” is just a charade to make money with the image.

Then too Telegram is not a verified place so anyone can say anything.

I noticed the flurry of angry tweets prompted Beefy Bull’s HIV- confession. I thought the backlash directed at him was a bit unfair. I’m somewhat sympathetic. When I was HIV- I wanted to abandon the fear, guilt and shame targeting men who have sex with men (regardless their HIV status). Even in 2005 at 35 years old effective meds suggested something other than HIV would more likely be a challenge growing old. Being mentally ready for a HIV+ diagnosis was empowering. Enjoying and embracing raw sex was good for me. Eventually (2 years late diagnosed HIV and gained a sense of relief. I was able to shift energy wasted on anxiety to more productive things: exercise, intime more confident comfortably disclosing my status improved socialising and build stronger social networks… and more sex and better sex. Routine health checks actually helps detect other health concerns more quickly than if I were HIV-. So very real health benefits – mentally and physically. Of course, it’s a great help HIV- guys have good access to PrEP so they have more options and opportunity for great sex. But I completely understand Beefy Bull and my HIV- mates imagining in their mind getting past the potential testing HIV+ anxiety and embracing the whole kit and kaboodle (including slightly inconvenient regular HIV+ bloodwork and routine trips to pick-up meds).

Wonderfully review of the pod cast,  “Demystifying Gay Porn” and the Season 3 Episode 12 of Open Lines “The Existent “Poz” Fetish”. I listened to the podcast whenever possible and love hearing about the gay porn industry. Hope Raw Bull is doing okay, and he reaches out to you for more details of his life before and living & sharing the “gift”. The thought of one’s sex drive being boosted after being infected with HIV may be a mental or a psychological boost with more confidence or no concerns about catching the virus. Raw Bull was in his sexual prime and others wanting him to share it with them (supply & demand). I know there has been to me some studies on that topic, but it appears to be more inconclusive. Love you articles and reviews, thank you for continuous support, writings and this site.

Thanks for this very interesting article and for posting the interview. I was only vaguely aware of Raw Bull during his heyday in 2021 and 2022 and I hope this is just a brief pause in his activity!
