Art_Deco saidWhat does the CDC say about condom use for anal sex? I believe they encourage it. Seems like we have 2 Federal agencies at odds, not the first time these turf wars have happened. Perhaps the CDC will respond.
In the meantime, still have anal sex with a condom. This is not a pass to bareback.
You'd think that'd be common sense, but sadly not always.
Well, a lot of guys want to hear what they want to hear, per their own agenda. They want to bareback, so they hear anything that might permit it, and disregard anything that doesn't.
One example is "undetectable viral count" as being a green light to bareback.
The reality is that viral counts rise & fall daily, and the viral count someone had for the test may not be his viral count today. Big difference. You wanna bet your life on that?
Plus undetectable does not mean HIV negative. He's still got the virus, just not a high enough count to register on tests. But maybe enough virus to infect you, maybe not. You gonna play that Russian roulette?
Plus it's just the truth of what he's telling you himself. Just like the guy who claims he's negative. Or says nothing at all. Does he really know? Is he lying? And you're gonna bet your future health on THAT? Are you crazy?
