    Look at: https://7chan.org/fag/src/130084795055.jpg, https://7chan.org/fag/src/130084824017.png, https://7chan.org/fag/src/130084824023.png, https://7chan.org/fag/src/130084830389.gif

    I'm not a regular here and don't know how "common knowledge" this is (this could be old news, I dunno). I saw these images earlier and tried to find the source material to prove it's just some bullshit, and was disappointed to find out that it's... completely serious.

    In a nutshell, there's this messed up shit called bug-seeking, which is essentially an AIDS fetish. There are communities of people who go around intentionally infecting people with HIV against their will just because they consider it erotic to do so.

    There's this site that's been garnering a lot of attention called bugshare.net which has over 10,000 members, though there are other sites as well dedicated to doing this. Their users tattoo themselves with the "Toxic waste" symbol and refer to themselves as "Poz" (positive), keeping track of how many "negs" they can share their AIDS with. Apparently this site is closing soon (because the owner died of AIDS and cannot maintain it further) and its users are going to be dispersing to other web communities.

    I've also read about people who will deliberately don't follow their medication instructions (i.e. only take it 5 out 7 days) to help allow the virus to mutate resistance to the medication. No idea if it's true, but beyond sociopathic if so.

    This is seriously the scariest fucking thing I've ever heard of. I think I'm going to stay home and play video games tonight instead of going out or maybe I'll join a church and have an exorcism done to get they gay demon out of me. What do you guys think of this? It seriously makes me want to turn straight.

    I know but even a nice guy may be lying to you. You never really know...and to think theres guys out there who will go out of their way to infect you bothers me to the core. Should I ask for "hiv papers" that confirm a guy I'm on a date with is negative? What can I do to protect myself against these types of guys? I feel they belong in prison.

    I avoid anal sex completely, unless I'm in a relationship. Ditto for taking in fluids.

    What did it for me were two phone calls, both several years ago, saying they just tested positive. These were both former bfs and then current friends. We never did anything too unsafe...but my own waiting and trauma of the whole episode convinced me to not go there.

    One of the guys turned out to be a bug chaser. Very good guy, graduate degree, successful and from a nice family...you'd never guess. The whole bug chaser thing was embarrassing to him...so he kept it hidden and walled off from his 'real' life.

    If the bug chaser is our friend or acquaintance, we shouldn't judge him or look down on him as bad or sick. None of us are perfect. Their behavior is self destructive, and hurts others...but let's be there for them and help them get past it. Keeping it silent only makes the problem worse.

    As for the gift givers...I put them on the same level as rapists and child molesters. In fact, there should be a gift giver registry to warn others...that and chemical castration.

    I just visited http://www.bugshare.net and there is nothing there but a comming soon page and a link to http://www.hivgenericdrugs.com that sells generic HIV Drugs.

    There is also a link to http://www.poppers.com that sells poppers.

    So I'm not understanding what is going on...icon_question.gif

    To the guy who started this tread you need to remember it takes TWO to tango.

    For every poz guy whose interested in intentionally infecting others, there are equally just as many neg guys or 'bug chasers' who specifically LOOK for poz men to have unprotected sex with. This goes both ways, it is not just poz men who are doing this.

    To paint the entire poz community as if we're all out there on some sick crusade to intentionally infect others is a both offensive and immature.

    No one has control over your body but you. You choose to have sex, with whom you have sex with, and if its safe or not. People need to take personal responsibility for their actions and if you allow yourself to have unsafe sex then you also better be able to deal with the consequences of your actions.

    Also the bio-hazard tattoo is typically a personal brand for poz men for a number of reasons other then what you've shared. Most poz men get one after they've finally come to terms with their status and as a way of publicly disclosing their status to others. Its one of the oldest ways for a poz gay male to discreetly advertise that they are positive to others.

    Like I tell all of my neg buddies, the only safe sex is no sex, period. If you go out and fuck around with a guy, even with condoms, you're opening yourself up to any STD out there.

    Let's look on the bright side....there are many times more men who are decent, loving individuals. Let's focus on that.

    All I know is I have friends who have HIV. I have learned a lot about HIV as a result. I don't practice unsafe sex with anyone unless we are in a committed relationship and have both been tested. I don't care how hot you are, unsafe sex is a no go. Yes there have been times I have been tempted to hook up with a hottie without a condom but the good angle on my shoulder warns me not to and when I bring up that I won't do it without a condom they either say ok and we use protection or they go away.

    Its up to each individual person to do what they can not to end up contracting HIV. Sometimes it happens and there is nothing you can do about it but you can take precautions.
