    If you and your partner are both HIV- and you only have sex with each other and remain HIV- there is no risk of you becoming HIV+. It doesn't just suddenly manifest, you have to catch it from someone who is HIV+ and infectious.

    The question is whether it is an acceptable risk to you both to have bareback sex on the basis of trust that neither of you will have sex outside of the relationship and put the other at risk. In a long term monogamous relationship where you've both been tested and free of all STDs including HIV then it is perfectly safe to do without condoms. Otherwise how would women ever get pregnant? You have to have trust and communication though.

    Can I get HIV from your partner? Is this a trick question? I don't know your partner. In all likelihood I've never had sex with your partner and probably never will. So the answer is, No, I cannot get HIV from your partner.

    You on the other hand have a better chance of getting HIV from him unless you can say with 100% certainty that he is HIV- and completely faithful, with regards to sexual activity, with you.

    Like PulseFit says above: Trust and communication.

    If you can't trust him then no bareback sex.

    You're 20. The statistics say that your relationship is likely to not last a long time. Brutal words but that's life. You shouldn't take the chance of barebacking because if or when he gets tired of you he may fool around on the side and become HIV+ and there's a window of opportunity for you to catch it from him between then and when he next gets tested.
