With all the controversy in recent years about unprotected sex, would you as consenting adults engage in unprotected sex?

I mean, personally I wouldn't. I have once but that was after going out with a guy for two years and we were both tested three times before. Even after all the precaution I was a little nervous.

It worries me though, knowing that about 70% of single women having unprotected sex and god knows how high it is in the gay community.
Would you do it? Is it really worth the risk?

Maybe if it was a long term monogamous relationship and we had both been tested.

I think a lot of people will be silent on this because there is an assumption it is dangerous. The reality is that it is only dangerous if one or other partner is HIV+. If neither partner is then it is perfectly safe or at least you know you won't get HIV that way.

The reason some bareback is that the condom ruins the sensation for some people. It has no nerve endings. If scientists can make the condom appear not to be there by using sensors to simulate bareback (virtual barebacking), then more people would use them.

1. Condoms can protect from STIs other than HIV so no it's not safe if both people are HIV negative
2. The problem is that many people don't know their HIV status so they might say they they are clean from STIs but they are not.

But you can get thinner condoms to feel more. My ex got no pleasure from extra safes so he used them. You could also use ribbed condoms for pleasure. I just think thatd it be very risky and not worth the risk of contracting ANY STI.

The only completely safe sex is masturbation.

If you take a strangers word for it that they are HIV free, then more fool you.

Sex is not always about the thickness of a condom. Sex can be dark, and dangerous, and fun and, because it’s a primary instinct, we have to find outlets. For some, it’s the taking of anothers seed which is a thrill, whether orally, vaginally or anally, and no amount of hand wringing will change that.

Why do you want to know whether others may bareback or not? Some will, and some will not, obviously

They need to make condoms with sensors so it feels like you are not wearing them. That would make them more popular.

As I mentioned on another thread the only time I think you should have bareback sex is if you want to procreate ie the aim is to get pregnant other than that wrap up

It's kind of you to offer advice to everyone else on when and where and how they should have sex. However, in my experience, unasked for advice is rarely welcome.

No I wouldn't engage in unprotected anal sex, but then again anal sex doesn't interest me.

Are you saying you wouldn't engage in anal sex, whether protected or unprotected?

I've tried anal sex a few times in the past, just to make sure I didn't fall foul of "don't knock it 'til you've tried it" taunts.
I always used a condom.
I do realise that some people love anal sex as much as I love oral sex and masturbation and kissing.
So, I guess it would be more difficult for them to always use a condom for anal sex.
For me, it's easy to use a condom because I have anal sex so rarely that I have plenty of time to plan for it.

Everyone should be allowed to be free to do what they want.
No one is forcing YOU to have unprotected anal sex.
Let's. Stop. Judging. Anything different from us!!!

Anal sex without the use of condoms is both dangerous and downright shitty..

Didn't you issue your own advice in a certain manner anyway?

I don't get your aggression and it is pretty evident in your posts. This is a discussion forum for people, it's here to provide a facility. You asked why would the OP raise the question, while why wouldn't he or she raise it and why do you feel the need to berate them for so doing. I think it's an excellent topic of discussion and very relevant at the moment.

I do think the issue of unprotected sex is a very sensitive one. It's baffling to see the number of people out there looking for random unprotected sex, that would scare the life out of me. Within the confines of a relationship I think it's always worth investigating.

I would suggest OP that your poll might offer options to reflect that.
