Someone said :
Calorie Vox was implying that monogamous couples shouldn't bareback because one will stray and infect the other with STI's or HIV.
I wasn't implying that monogamous couples shouldn't bareback, I was merely pointing out that it sometimes happens that people in monogamous relationships get infected with HIV.
If it was me (and if I was interested in bareback anal sex):
I would get tested with my partner.
If we were both negative, I would wait for the window period to pass, then
If I really, really trusted my partner
- I might do it.
People change though and no matter how well you think you know someone, that person might be unfaithful sexually to you.
I would still accept that it is my own responsibility if I contract HIV through bareback anal sex - Yes, even if I was infected by a lying, unfaithful partner.
It is within everyone's power to not put themselves at risk of contracting HIV through consensual sex.
