The funny yet tragic truth of anonymous gay sex

This funny (and painfully true) video depicting gay sex partners hooking up for a quickie points out the crazy logic I sometimes find online. People who wouldn’t risk riding their bike without a helmet will have unprotected anal sex with someone just because he says he’s HIV negative.

I happen to know from my conversations in chat rooms that some guys who have unprotected sex are in fact HIV+ and lie about it. Or, as a recent Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention study points out, almost half the gay an bi men who are infected just don’t know it because they haven’t been tested.

The lesson here of course is not put your health in the hands of someone you’ve met for the length of an anonymous hookup. If you’re having anonymous bareback sex, you’re putting yourself at risk, no matter what the top says.
