Barebacking is playing roulette with HIV
In previous articles on gay barebacking we’ve looked at the consequences of becoming infected with HIV today. If you are infected nowadays, and you’re diagnosed promptly, then it is true that you can expect a near normal lifespan , and a near normal quality of life .
BUT, you still don’t want to become infected with HIV. You’ll have to have a lot of inconvenient check-ups and tests throughout your life. At some point you’ll need to start taking medication, and once you do you’ll have to continue for the rest of your life.
Whilst HIV is far more manageable for guys newly diagnosed today, it still isn’t going to do you any good. You may get some side effects from the drugs you have to take, and you may experience some stigma. It will also affect your sex life as you’ll have a responsibility to not pass the disease on.
So, the best advice is wear a condom to maximise your protection against HIV.
However, in the real world many gay guys still prefer to bareback and that choice should be respected. Read the rest of this entry

How to have sex with a watermelon in the Fitlads magazine
Fitlads claims to be the UK’s second largest gay website after Gaydar, although Ladslads has got to be nipping at its heels. Fitlads‘ style is young, scally and horny - so if you like the white chav and sportsgear look then you’ll probably like Fitlads.
Fitlads does have a very fresh, street approach with statements like “I’m a nob” (forgotten both password and user name) and “Bollocks Mebbe you typed it in wrong”, and the overall branding is very ‘council estate’ with brickwork and graffiti-like text.
Recently Fitlads appears to be pushing sex more - with a porn video site (a skin of the Homoactive porn site), and even making their own porn DVD. Their quarterly magazine also has a lot of sexual content and tips - like the correct way to have sexual intercourse with a watermelon! This sexual emphasis works well with their brand.

Unbiased Reporting of the Risks, Consequences and Rewards of Gay Bareback Sex Needed
The decision to use condoms or have bareback sex is a personal one and should be respected
When was the last time you read an article in the mainstream gay press extolling gay bareback sex? When were you told about how great it is to feel your cock inside another guy’s arse with nothing in between? Or how a cock cumming inside you with no barrier is much more satisfying?
I expect the answer is never.
AIDS knocked us for six in the ’80s and devastated many lives, and understandably since then we’ve been screaming CONDOM from the rooftops at every opportunity.
But in our quest to prevent AIDS related deaths and illness at all costs, we could be losing perspective about the personal choice that gay men have a right to make regarding bareback sex. Read the rest of this entry
