Being Irresponsible When Fucking. Having Unprotected Sex Is Just Plain Insane & Wreckless Behavior

Alarming new has surfaced, this time from Canada, that a reare sexually transmitted disease that affects mainly gay men has surfaced. It is called LGV or lymphogranuloma venerum.

These guys were also infected with HIV/AIDS and also Hepatitis C.

This is the same strain that started earlier in San Francisco, spreading to NYC and Atlanta. Here we go again. Earlier this strain was found in Europe. Over 100 cases have been reported there.

LGV is usually associated with chlamydia, but the new strain, showing up with guys having man to man unprotected sex is marked by gastrointestinal bleeding, inflammation of the rectum and colon, genital ulcers, swollen lymph glands and flu-like symptoms. Other symptoms include itching ansus, blood or mucus in the stool, and straing and cramping when having a bowel movement. All great topics to share around the dinner table.

It can cause a serious infection which travels through the body's lymphatic system. If left untreated, the inflammation can cause scarring of the genitals or rectum and colon. These scars
can interfere with normal bodily functions such as pissing and shitting, and can lead to severe illnesses.

The good news is if LGV is diagnosed early, it can be effectly treated with common antibiotics such as doxycycline. But for how long, that's anybody's guess.

With all these unpleasant symptons, why would anyone want unprotected sex? It is beyond me to believe that responsible gay men can set themselves for such misery. I just have to conclude that these guys are so irrational that they can't think for themselves. So it is for the top man to stop the stupidity and this insanity. Top men have to wear condoms when fucking, period.
They need to get their act together and try some common sense. Why would anyone want to expose themselves to something so discomforting that they couldn't fuck again to any degree of satisfaction?

We have come upon another Gay Pride Month with all of its parties and opportunities to further spread LGV. I'm just praying that organizers don't turn their heads and try to promote erotic, sexier sex, curbing drug use and unprotected sex. But as everyone knows, guys will have unprotected sex regardless. So the only recourse is to mentally prepare guys to have safer sex.

This is contrary to the opinion of Eric Rofes, who should know better. He proclaims that there should be a Time for Time Out on Safe-Sex Push. He says that the backlash against circuit party culture has made the circuit unfairly scapegoated as the primary site of greatest risk of HIV transmission and infection. We know that it is the individual, not necessarily the atmosphere, but that environment can sometimes lead to primal, unprotected sexual behavior.

He should know better. He says that circuits give wonderful gifts to certain members of our tribe. But these are parting gifts that none of us really want. So with such a large captive audience, why can't these promoters show how to have passionate foreplay in a safe environment. This would be a definite turnon and show guys that you can have really hot sex safely. Rubbing together dancing, getting it on and having safer sex can be promoted as a positive experience, if packaged and marketed correctly. Showing condoms in a new, sexy, positive light would certainly make a difference. You can have safe kinky sex. I know that and you guys know that as well.

So Eric and his words of wisdom advise that we need a few years of "time out" from directive AIDS prvention work for gay men. We need to "get away from all the messaging, all the marketing, all the "crises of the Week" used to terrify gay men into sexual sterility."

What a drama queen Eric is. I guess he can't get laid unless he has unprotected sex. Just plain bullshit. I've seen Eric in some recent photos. He used to really be a cute fuzzy guy. But now, he's just a preaching queen who wants to trap younger guys into his web of ill advised philosophy. He ends his pitch with the words, "Let's stop the minipulation. Give us a time-out to heal." Just plain bullshit and a cop out. Only by making sex truly enjoyable and sane, that all of us in this wonderful tribe will be able to enjoy each other for years to cum.

I agree with you there, Buff.

Good to hear you are adamant about safe sex. I'm with you. I don't understand why guys would want to put themselves and other people at risk.

I totally agree; however, I do understand why people tend to do it (having made some bad/reckless decisions in the past). Sex is like a drug. Period. And fucking without a condom can be very very addictive because it feels so much better. I still have to figuratively slap myself across the face every time I fuck to remind myself to be smart and not give in to the temptation.

You know... I actually think condoms are sexy in themselves. Part of the heat of the moment and the hightened sexuality for me is being able to roll a condom onto a nice piece of meat and then lather it up with some lube. I don't know why, but that is just soooo TOTALLY hot for me...

Now if only I could find a romantic top to play with every day ;)

I'm so glad I'm in a monogamous relationship! I was adamant about safe sex, even going to high schools and queer youth groups to give presentations. One drunken night changed my life forever! Stupid alcohol!
