Sydneyrugbyjock73 saidYour agenda is very clear thank you for re-enforcing what all the members here already know which is that you are attempting to advocate BB sex between poz tops and negative bottoms well done
My "Agenda"? Attempting to advocate? The earth is round?
My agenda is for you to stay out of other people's bedrooms and quit attacking their choices. Participants in the Partner's Study, all magnetic couples, Gay and Straight were all consenting and informed.
And no HIV was transmitted. That's very clear from several studies. That's science. If "all the members here" know that PrEP and ART Therapy will prevent HIV transmission then NO ONE on this site should become POSITIVE!
You, on the other hand are at a much higher risk.
1) You have sex indiscriminately but with condoms. They break and slip. Good 80% of the time. Not so good 20%!
2) You seem to distinguish top/bottom and poz/neg in the sexual roles. While it is somewhat safer to be a Neg Top, don't rely on that.
"It’s technically less likely to be infected as the top than the bottom, although the risk isn’t eliminated. According to a study in Australia, around 1 in 5 men who recently contracted HIV were tops. In a research study published in 2007, among a sample size of 102 gay and bi men who were recently diagnosed HIV-positive, 10 of them were infected despite ‘strategic positioning’."
Even with a condom, factoring in a 10-20% failure rate.....these are the risk factors you and all of us choose.
Maybe it's one, two or three preventative things. PrEP, serosorting, Undetectable, condoms, ‘strategic positioning' are all effective...to some degree. Serosorting alone is actually dangerous by itself.
If you asked me, "Can a monogamous long term couple, Neg/undetectable have "natural" sex?" First of all, it's up to them and their doctor. But yes, TasP has proven to be effective and safe. Is it 100%? No, but It seems to be near if not actually zero. If you disagree that's fine. There's always blips and spikes, but that doesn't seem to have caused any HIV transmissions. Everyone has a comfort level. That isn't science though.
The CDC has weighed in with it's opinion: "In addition to the positive impact it can have on a person’s health and well-being, people who start and continue treatment are 96 percent less likely to transmit HIV to others. Treatment for health and prevention is a key element in CDC’s HIV prevention toolkit."
But to accuse me of a "BB Agenda" (that sounds so Right Wing silly!) is just Slut Shaming and disingenuous. And definitely NOT scientifically based.
