Gay bareback sex dating

Some people don't like to bareback, though; I've known tops with a "quick trigger" who prefer to use a condom because it slows them down a bit, and I've known both tops and bottoms who are so concerned about potentially transmitting STDs to their partner that they can't climax without using one. It's up to each and every one of us to determine what constitutes acceptable risk, and recognize the potential consequences of our decision.But the guys who do bareback – or are thinking about trying it – need to ask themselves this vitally important question: Is momentarily enhanced pleasure worth putting themselves and their partners at risk, even if that risk is a minimal one? My point, though, is that you can never know your partner's status, or your own for that matter.Having another STI can further increase your risk for transmission.Research also suggests that uncircumcised tops are at a higher risk for HIV infection than those who are circumcised. Responsibility: When topping, it is arguably more important to know your HIV status.Tops may get the glory, but bottoms make the world go round.To be a good bottom a guy has to know what works for his body, how to maintain a healthy and hygienic rear end and how to navigate his sexual health without compromising his pleasure.(Popular Myth: A guy who exclusively tops will never get HIV.) Risk: A guy who is topping is generally at a lesser risk for HIV than the guy who is bottoming, but both topping and bottoming during unprotected anal sex is considered high-risk behavior.When a condom isn’t used, HIV can enter through the opening of the penis through small cuts, abrasions or open sores.

There's more to the One Rule, though, and it pertains to sexually-transmitted diseases. Now he's on medication and undetectable, but the experience has been horrific for him.Quite simply, tops have it easy when it comes to gay sex because being a good bottom is no easy job.(Popular myth: If an HIV-positive guy is always the bottom, he will never transmit the virus.) Risk: Simply put, a gay man who bottoms is more at risk for HIV.If you are HIV-positive and not on treatment, you may have a high viral load that places your sexual partner at higher risk for transmission.If your partner is HIV-positive, you are still at risk but that risk is reduced, especially if he is on treatment and undetectable.
