Gay Stuff : Sexual Interests And Energy

Catégorie: Gay Stuff : Health

When you surf the Adam4Adam site you will find a wide variety of sexual offerings from which to make selections—like a restaurant menu! One element in common is the mutual desire for a stimulating sex partner who desires the same pleasures and is in sync with you. Sometimes, your surfing produces quick results—other times it can be a start and stop experience as you begin the process of determining what the other guy wants in the sexual adventure—whether for a single event, or for a possible LTR (long-term relationship).

If your profile is clearly defined, you will have less confusion finding a compatible playmate. If you are a defined top then state that fact! If you are not a versatile/top, then avoid that notation in your profile. From my review of the site over several years, there appear to be more bottoms and versatile/bottoms than there are tops and versatile/tops. Clearly the tops are in demand by guys who want to be penetrated!

Health : HIV – A Functional Cure?

Catégorie: Health

hiv-virus

 

A possible “functional cure” for HIV has recently been granted FDA approval for further human testing. The method uses genetic modification to cause a specific mutation in the white blood cells of HIV patients which mirrors those found in the naturally immune. It has so far shown to be both receptive and long-lasting.

The novel therapy involves taking stem cells from HIV-infected patients and using a gene editing tool to cause them to form into white blood cells with a specific mutation. The mutation affects a protein known as CCR5, and interferes with the virus’s ability to latch onto blood cells. The mutation occurs naturally in a small percentage of the world’s population and gives these individuals a life-long resistance to HIV infections. Although the virus may remain in their body, without being able to enter the T cells, it cannot replicate and therefore will stay at low numbers, uncompromising the immune system.

Health : Negative On PrEP – Positive Undetectable

Catégorie: A4A : Health

Hey guys, below is a comment we received few days ago when we announced that A4A was now offering “HIV negative on PrEP” as an option in your profile’s sero status. We thought about sharing it with you guys as a great piece of information. If you have any questions or comments, please add them below, I will try to get them answered. By posting this comment, I want people to understand more about HIV and how undetectable guys that are very careful with their medication are not to be scared of. I am not saying “let’s fuck bareback with random people even though they are poz!!!”, I’m saying that poz guys that are undetectable are wayyyy more safe than someone sexually active who got tested 2 months ago who wants to fuck you bareback. PLEASE use condom when you have sex though, because there are other STDs out there and some of them ARE VERY DANGEROUS! Now read the comment we received below:

 

“Before anything else, I am an MD. 

The irony of this whole thing is that because of research findings of 0 transmission from undetectable patients even through unprotected sex, you actually have greater odds of getting HIV even from a person (maybe even with a condom on) who tested negative today (unless it was the PCR RNA viral load method: the same one that indicates real-time undetectable viral loads) than from having unprotected sex with a positive person on meds with undetectable load. Testing negative for HIV using the ELISA method (which is what most people get) only means you tested negative for the HIV antibody proteins, which takes an average of 3 months for most people to develop titers high enough of to be detected. That means your negative test today only indicates that you PROBABLY did not have the virus 3 MONTHS AGO, not today. So unless you absolutely had no sexual contact with anybody (not even oral) for the last 6 months (the maximum time in the window period), you are not guaranteed that you do not have HIV in your system right this moment even with a negative ELISA test today. And that only goes for the ones who got tested TODAY. There are much more who do not get tested regularly, if at all.”

A4A : New Option ; Negative On PrEP

Catégorie: A4A : Health

Hey guys, you probably saw it already if you modified your profile in the last few days but we added a new option under “HIV Status” in your profile: Negative on PrEP. So we now have “Don’t know”, “Negative”, “Positive”, “Undetectable” and “Negative on PrEP”.

So my suggestion for you this week is “know your status”! Whether you don’t know, you’re neg, or neg on PrEP… take an appointment at your doctor or in a clinic and know your status. Not only it is important for you to know it, but also for others. Then if you want to put it in your A4A profile, it is your decision, but at least YOU will know your status and you will act accordingly. OK?

Let’s all work together at minimizing the HIV spread.

Have a wonderful day!

Dave

Health : “On PrEP? HRC Wants To Know!”

Catégorie: Health

(This post was written by Noel Gordon at HRC)

Building on our endorsement of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) late last year, HRC is proud to launch a new social and digital media campaign raising awareness about PrEP and encouraging people on PrEP to share their stories with friends, family and loved ones.

Participate in HRC’s #DailyBlue Instagram campaign with these three easy steps:

  1. Show Us: Take a picture of your life on PrEP. Be creative. Be silly. Be funny. Be SFW. Just be sure to include that little blue pill somewhere in the photo.
  2. Tell Us: Upload your picture to Instagram. In just a few words, tell us who or what encouraged you to go on PrEP in the first place. Be sure to tag @HumanRightsCampaign and use the hashtag #DailyBlue.
  3. Spread the Word: Share your photo with your friends, family and loved ones to raise awareness and end stigma.

PrEP is a new HIV prevention strategy that involves taking anti-HIV medication to significantly reduce the risk of contracting HIV. When taken as prescribed by a knowledgeable healthcare provider, and paired with other safer sex practices, PrEP can be upwards of 90% effective at preventing HIV. Several LGBT and HIV/AIDS groups have come out in support of PrEP since the Food and Drug Administration first approved it in 2012.
