NOTES:

1 Risk assessment is general, and actual risks to the individual will vary from person to person.

2 Please note that HIV-Negative tops fucking HIV+Positive bottoms has been upgraded to the level of "Very High Risk" following findings that indicate rectal secretions in the anus contain a higher percentage of HIV than either blood or semen, thereby presenting a more serious risk to HIV-Negative tops than was previously believed. It has also been determined that uncurcumcised men are even more susceptible to infection than circumcised men due to the presence of DC-SIGN in the foreskin. For more information, please visit The Wyas Your Body Betrays in our Health Dept.

3 Aggressive assplay can make a mess of your insides, and make it easier for infected cum to attack. If your ass has a load in it from an infected guy when he starts in with the toys and fists, he could be guaranteeing your infection. Same if he dumps a load in you during or after the assplay.

4 Sores from other STD's, including Herpes, can open the door to HIV infection as well as other STD infection. If you should develop signs of an STD, it is best to have it attended to by a medical professional. Wait until the symptoms have healed before engaging in sex once again. And always look for STD symptoms on your partners before having oral or anal contact.




We understand that people engage in bareback sex for a number of reasons. Some men have made a conscious decision to bareback while others decide to ditch the rubbers on the spur of the moment. We feel that - regardless of your reasons - with knowledge, information, and a bit of common sense, you have the tools to make the wisest decisions possible.
