    All readings came back clean as a whistle. Whew! No more anonymous hookups for me! Though with my libido this might be a doozy. icon_razz.gif

    Congrats! It really can be an eye opening experience getting tested, even when clean. And if you really want to swear off the random hookups, its definitely possible. Hell I have an extremely high sex drive and after my short whorish stint of my late teens, I swore them off and didn't have sex again for over 3 years. So anything is possible

    If you always play SAFE, then you don't have anything to worry about. Use a condom, every time. Otherwise, well... I'm sure you know how the story will end.

    It's not just about how random the hookup is. There are plenty of guys who have whored around for years and remain negative because they only engage in low risk behavior (mutual j.o. and oral sex) or use a condom EVERY time for anal. That's not foolproof, but it dramatically reduces the risk.

    Just as importantly, there are lots of people (men and women) who have contracted HIV through serial monogamy or simple monogamy, because they assumed that they were safe because they knew their partner. However, if one's partner is out getting gang-banged in the bathhouse on the DL, then trusting them can prove fatal. We tend to distrust people we don't know and trust those that we do, but sometimes that trust is misplaced.

    In other words sometimes it's more about what you do than it is about who you do.

    Getting tested after you've hooked up can be stressful, even if you engaged in relatively low risk activities. I've gotten myself checked 4 times, with each all the results were negative. I still think you can have fun without the risk. icon_smile.gif

    Thx you guys, well mainly why I abstain from a random hookup is that I want to fight someday and can't put myself at risk. Although all the guys I ever hooked up with had no exchange of fluids that was a no no. I only took a load inside me only once, and thx the lord nothing bad came from it. So mainly I've been masturbating and self anal to satiate my need. But xtube is making those hookups look great.
