We Live In Real Life; Not Pornography!

Listen y’all! There’s something really important that I have to say! I’ve been noticing lately that guys on Grindr and A4A, and also the people one meets whilst out on the town, have become way too relaxed about the issue of S.T.I.’s and barebacking.

The popularity of condomless porn and such fetishes as breeding, among others, may have an underhand in this ass backward cultural shift of ours, but they aren’t the only contributing factors. And believe me, I do understand! I prefer watching bareback porn, too. It seems more natural; more intimate. It’s kind of rebellious, in its way, and y’all know I don’t feature authoritarianism! It’s also mysteriously hot in some other ways which I don’t completely understand just yet. But, here’s the thing. . .

We Live In Real Life! 

Not Pornography!

And in real life, there really are such afflictions as syphilis (which is potentially deadly & causes blindness), gonorrhea & chlamydia (both becoming antibiotic resistant) and various other nasty little critters which I don’t feel like grossing myself out with at the moment. (We’ll get to them later, though.)

My point is this:

These things are still real!
They’re still contagious!
They’re getting harder to cure!
And they are PREVENTABLE!

Condomless sex may be hot in its ways. But, LIFE is kind of hot, too, if you ask me! Especially, a life free from crustaceans growing off our nether regions, and such!


Another thing I’m pretty sure’s a contributor to our current lackadaisical attitudes around safer-sex, ironically, is the mind-blowing success of life-saving prevention strategies like Pre and Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PREP). Now, PREP is a Miracle! And I encourage everyone who is sexually active and still HIV Negative to get on it as soon as they can! It will likely save your life!

Let me repeat that.

If You Are HIV (-) Negative & Sexually Active – Get On PREP! It will save your life!

Rather, it will save you from one of many possible ways of dying! But, it won’t save you from incurable gonorrhea, extremely painful penicillin shots, the consistency of thick honey, in each butt cheek (for 3 consecutive weeks) to get rid of syphilis, or cauliflower-like structures growing out of your formerly sexy parts.

So, Wrap It Up!, too, please!

Over the next few months, I will be publishing a series of articles, each focusing on a particular sexually transmitted infection, its causes, its consequences, its treatments, and proven prevention strategies. Please stay tuned! And share this knowledge with your friends and fuck buddies!


(One last thing, I must avow that I am not a doctor and even if I were, I am not your doctor. Medical information and advice are continuously evolving with the addition of new scientific data to humanity’s knowledge base. — Please consult your own doctor for professional, up-to-date and personalized medical assessments & treatment plans. — There will be an upcoming article detailing where you can go if you don’t currently have a medical provider.) 

Thank you for reading, commenting, liking, and sharing, and most of all for protecting yourself and your partner(s)!


Remember,

A Gram of Prevention’s Worth a Kilo of Care!™

Indulgent Blessings upon you, my joy-bringers.
