Health : Serodiscordant Lovers

Catégorie: Health

pozneg

Are you poz? Neg? Is your BF poz? Is he neg?

If you are positive, does it makes you sad that some people think that being poz is being dirty, slutty, unhealthy or unclean?

Negative guys, do you know that poz guys are sometimes more healthy than other guys? Why? Because they get tested every 2-3 months by their doctor for everything. From anemia to hepatitis and other blood infection or STDs. Of course knowing your status is very important, because when you don’t know it, it can be very dangerous. When you know it, with medications, you become undetectable very quickly and therefore the virus transmission is almost impossible.

The short movie “Knowing” wants to spread the message of the importance of knowing your HIV status, telling and asking, and choosing love.

It is a beautifully shot short film about the early stages of a serodiscordant relationship (on poz, one neg) who manage the task of being tender, sexy and educational without being preachy or heavy-handed.

Impulse Group has followed that effort up with a second short film “Open”  which further explores the nuance of a sexually active, serodiscordant couple during moments of decision, revelation, frustration and, most of all, love.

By sharing these videos with you guys, I want you to educate yourself on the subject if you are not familiar with it. Watch these short 4-5 minutes movies, they are very well done and it demystifies the situation.

Let me know your thoughts and negative guys….don’t be scared of undetectable guys, they can love you too :)

Health : Bug Chasing (HIV)

Catégorie: Health

So yesterday’s post on HIV got a lot of reactions and it gave me the idea to blog about bug chasing today. I’ve been thinking about blogging about it for quite a while, but I was scared that it would give the idea to some less informed guys to become bug chasers. I did a bit of research, watched documentaries and read blog posts about it and I have to see that I feel a bit dizzy right now and disturbed. Here is what I have to say about it.

Bug chasing is the practice of pursuing sexual activity with HIV-positive individuals in order to contract HIV. Individuals engaged in this activity are referred to as bugchasers. It is a form of self-harm. Bugchasers seek sexual partners who are HIV-positive for the purpose of having unprotected sex and becoming HIV-positive; giftgivers are HIV-positive individuals who comply with the bugchaser’s efforts to become infected with HIV. In some cases, people seek out AIDS in order to fit in, please a sexual partner, or simply for thrills.

AN EXCERPT FROM A POZ MAGAZINE ARTICLE BY ALEX GARNER, THE FOUNDING EDITOR OF POSITIVE FRONTIERS WANTS AN HONEST CONVERSATION ABOUT LIVING WITH HIV

Receiving the news that you are HIV positive is life changing. Some people experience profound fear and shame upon hearing the news, but they don’t have to. Let’s stop scaring negative men about the “woes and wariness of living with HIV” and instead have an honest conversation about the complexities, good and bad, that accompany living with HIV.

HIV is not like serving a prison sentence and HIV-positive individuals don’t exist as walking prevention messages. It’s time to stop cultivating fear in HIV-negative people and instead provide spaces where both positive and negative men can live authentic lives and determine for themselves what is best for their health and wellness.

These are six life changes that come with a diagnosis:

Health : A Condom That Detects STDs

Catégorie: Health

A condom that changes colour when it comes into contact with STDs has been invented by a group of school children.

The ‘S.T.EYE’ has a built-in indicator to detect infections such as chlamydia and syphilis, turning a different colour depending on the strain of bacteria present.

Three students at Isaac Newton Academy in Ilford, Essex, wanted to “make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before” without the need for invasive tests. The 13 and 14 years old kids are definitely smart! I don’t remember being aware of what STDs were when I was their age.

Good job guys!

Marketing is generally the driving force in all sales efforts; that includes the sale of one’s self.

Hooking-up online has it’s advantages: advantages that can get you laid quickly and matched with just the right guy. One of the advantages found in profiles are that they can tell you what a guy is into, where he is, what he looks like, and when he is available. Profiles are the online marketing tools of those seeking sex. When accurate and honest, a well written profile can reduce the talk required before meeting a sexual match to a couple of emails and help to ensure you have a great time with the right guy. When a profile is completed with detailed information, the information posted can effectively weed out those you are not interested in meeting, and invite those you want to meet. Profiles are great marketing tools!

When members join Adam4Adam seeking a sex partner, what goes in your profile—your marketing tool—will ultimately help to determine what happens sexually between you and other members of the site.
