    You guys having sex, protected or unprotected.

    Sex with your boyfriend or a random number.

    Sex with condoms all the time, half the time, sometimes, or a slip up here and there.

    Sex with the guy who looked slutty or the guy who looked "clean".

    Sex with a friend or sex with a stranger. Sex with the guy who said he was poz or the guys who said HIV/STD UB2.

    The guy with the papers for proof.

    The guy without papers for proof.

    The guy with the amazing body.

    The dude who should run a couple of laps.

    The white man or black man or asian man or native American man.

    The guy in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, or Africa.

    The man from the south or the man from the north.

    The smooth twink.

    The husky bear.

    The all-american hunk


    Doesn't matter. Get tested regularly if you're having sex. For yourself. For your friends. For your family. For your community. For your sex partners.

    I agree, every 3 months if you are sexually active with different people. And do not ever have uprotected anal sex unless you are absolutely sure your partner is HIV- and that he is going to be faithful (I don't know how that is possible though).

    I heard recently of yet another guy (he is 27) who was in a relationship and became infected by having sex with a guy as part of an open relationship. The guy did not know that he was HIV+ until his ex gave him the bad news that the ex had just tested positive (it turns out the ex had not been faithful).

    Dispose of the sentimental, romantic thoughts you might have about your partner. You may love him but he probably has the same weakness that many guys have. He cannot exercise self-discipline when it comes to his sex drive. Your health is more important than any starry-eyed notions your bf might fill you up with about you being the only one and he will never cheat on you, blah, blah, blah.

    Please don't forget to get tested for all STD's.
    If you have contracted one STD - your vulnerable to getting others including HIV.
    Peace ...

    Words can't express the grief I feel reading this....
