    Yup… always play safe. It’s the best thing you can do. My friend thinks I’m weird because I keep my own stash of condoms and lube and sometimes have it in my bag wherever I go… only you can protect yourself best.

    I really feel for our brothers who are living positively especially when it comes to stigmatization. I remember before my wedding when we had to do the mandatory HIV test. I went to the hospital and innocently announced that I want to do HIV test. You need to see how everybody around me froze with fright and scampered away from me. The nurse,s countenance only changed when I told her the test was a requirement for my wedding. You can imagine how I felt even when I’m not carrying the virus. Stigma is one big problem that people living with HIV have to contend with.

    The stigma however is dying down.. but education is key. It is important to note that some acts are still very safe eg kissing. Saliva is not known to harbor d virus. But semen does… you know you can get the virus off blow jobs right?
    So sucking off a guys cum/precum and proceeding to wear a condom to have sex when u don’t know each others status is a foolish act

      I heard the blowjob part is risky when you’ve got a wound in your mouth. Otherwise you suck the precum and if it is infected, how would the virus survive, unless there’s a sore it can latch into

        Its only dangerous when you have wound in your mouth. The virus if swallowed, is killed by stomach acid. So for those of you with bleeding gum, wait for at least 45 minutes after brushing before you can engage in bj or even kissing…

        One can get HIV through oral sex. However, the risk is higher when the oral mucosal lining is breached. But fact is even brushing your mouth can breach this mucosal lining, therefore it is advisable not to engage in oral sex with a person whose status you aren’t sure of. Sounds scary, right? Oral sex still has a lower risk than anal sex, however.

    Naah. You need to know dat the mucosa of d mouth and skin are different. Things in the tongue and underneath it quickly diffuse into the systemic circulation. There must not be a wound for the virus in d mouth to shout Uhuru. Don’t depend on hearsay pinky, search the books

    A friend of mine who is HIV positive told me recently how a guy, who happens to be a doctor, took advantage of the fact that my friend was intoxicated and had bareback lubeless sex with him. The Doctor was on the receptive end and was completely oblivious of my friends status neither did he bother to ask. When my friend insisted they use a condom, the doctor told him that one doesn’t get HIV by having sex once with someone who by chance might have the virus. ..apparently u need repeated exposure ( the idiocy in that sentence)

    when the deed was done my friend felt guilty, I advised him to surreptitiously hint that the doctor begins PEP immediately but he’s afraid he might give out his status in the process especially seeing as the doctor is well known amongst gay circles

    so I guess thats how the doctor most likely now has HIV. tragic

      FKA Chizzie, you said ‘most likely’. Reminds me about that Likert Scale that researchers use, from ‘strongly disagree’ or ‘most likely’ all the way to ‘least’ etc, in 5 steps. In other words, I assume your statement gives away your personal opinion about infectivity….

      Who knows, maybe the receptive doctor already knew he had HIV sef; Since we are in the season of assumptions, it wudnt hurt to assume everything….

      Your friend is also guilty. He would not have succumbed to the pressure. But I don’t blame any of them too much. Weakness is a human thing and every body has a moment of weakness. I mean, who hasn’t done something totally stupid before? So I judge not…

      Lol! All this ppl that went to Iya Leja Medical school! The same way some ignorant fools will say a gal can’t get pregnant after just one encounter. Ignorance is truly a disease.
      Thanks for Educating us Pinky!
