Wrestling didn't save anybody from AIDS if they were active bottoms. And the whole "stakes match" (winner bones loser) subculture of the Gay side of the sport probably contributed to the casualty count. Not that I want to take anything away from one of the greatest and funnest athletic activities of all. But seriously - if you were mostly or only a top, then got nervous and celibate when the hysteria started growing, the odds of your contracting HIV plummeted whether you rassled or crocheted or whatever.
Another of Mr D's points is well taken, that of having a quality circle of friends to occupy your time which might've otherwise been spent trolling for hookups and therefore lowering STI risks. Here again, though, that holds true no matter what the network derives from.
No offense to a person I've been acquainted with, and who I hold in high regard in many ways. But "lighting quality" isn't the only reason that it's just as well that segment didn't make it to the final cut.
