Health : Foreskin Regeneration

Catégorie: Health

Foreskin_by_myp55

The foreskin is not an optional extra for a man’s body, or an accident. It is an integral, functioning, important component of a man’s penis. An eye does not function properly without an eyelid – and nor does a penis without its foreskin.

Among other things, the foreskin provides:

-Protection: The foreskin fully covers the glans (head) of the flaccid penis, thereby protecting it from damage and harsh rubbing against abrasive agents (underwear, etc.) and maintaining its sensitivity

-Sexual Sensitivity: The foreskin provides direct sexual pleasure in its own right, as it contains the highest concentration of nerve endings on the penis

-Lubrication: The foreskin, with its unique mucous membrane, permanently lubricates the glans, thus improving sensitivity and aiding smoother intercourse

-Skin-Gliding During Erection: The foreskin facilitates the gliding movement of the skin of the penis up and down the penile shaft and over the glans during erection and sexual activity

-Varied Sexual Sensation: The foreskin facilitates direct stimulation of the glans during sexual activity by its interactive contact with the sensitive glans

-Immunological Defense: The foreskin helps clean and protect the glans via the secretion of anti-bacterial agents.

Health : HIV Researchers Die In A Plane Crash

Catégorie: Health : News

The Malaysian plane that was shot down over the Ukraine yesterday contained many of the world’s leading AIDS researchers en route to a conference in Melbourne, Australia. 108 researchers were reported dead yesterday, but recent news from Australian authorities suggested that the number was much lower this morning (nothing confirmed). Someone may literally have shot the cure for AIDS out of the sky. Great fucking job, humanity!!!

According to the Telegraph, delegates already gathered in Melbourne for pre-conference meetings were informed of the deaths of 108 of their colleagues after the plane was downed by a surface-to-air missile yesterday. Among the dead are World Health Organization advisor Glenn Thomas, as well as research giant and lauded humanitarian Dr. Joep Lange and his wife, Jacqueline van Tongeren, who has been researching AIDS for three decades. Dr. Lange has written more than 350 papers and spent his career fighting for access to low-cost AIDS treatment in Africa.

It’s a sad day! Our prayers are with the families of the lost ones!

Health : Being POZ And Finding Love

Catégorie: Gay Stuff : Health : Speak Out

I receive emails every week from members saying that they are having a hard time finding love because they are HIV positive. I am sure it is more complicated than for negative guys, but it is possible. Even around me I have a friend who is negative who dates a positive man. Why? Simply because he loves his partner and couldn’t care less about whether he is poz or neg.

It is true that many guys out there don’t know much about HIV transmission and how low the risks are when someone is on medication so they will categorically exclude positive men from being potential partners. I also think that many positive men exclude themselves by fear of being rejected. Some of you guys are in a serodiscordant relationship, you might be poz and your partner is neg or vice versa…so YES love is possible.

In the comment section below, I would like to hear you guys about this subject. Maybe give poz guys some tips on how to reveal their status to a partner or how to approach someone who is neg on A4A, or maybe encourage negative guys to look further than the status of a person or even share your own story. I think that this can be very helpful for everyone!

There’s a great article on POZ.com about serodiscordant couples sharing their experience, check it out :)

Have a great day guys!

Health: Truvada As Pre Exposure Prophylaxis…Yay or Nay?

Catégorie: Health

Truvada

 

(This post was submitted by one of our member, if you wish to submit an article as well, send it to blog @ adam4adam.com)

I have reached a point in my life where I feel it necessary to take into account my current health situation and being a young gay man, I have found recent articles on the use of Truvada as a PrEP drug to educate the masses on continuing safe sex practices in the gay community. I have researched the drug, all the side effects and also all the benefits of taking the therapy on a daily regiment basis. In accordance to many publications, I have found myself more and more inclined to get a referral script and begin my therapy as a PrEP patient and protect my health both now and for the future. However, it has come to my attention that the usage of Truvada as a PrEP therapy raises some eyebrows in the more conservative and older generations. Case in point: I still have insurance through my mom. I raised this question in earnest as a possibility to better myself and protect myself. However, upon bringing this up, I was met with a barrage of comments such as “people should just not sleep around and not be safe” and “I raised you better, and this sounds like you just want to go out and have unsafe sex!” This not only disheartened me, but baffled me.
