“Why the hell are you on PrEP if you don’t do bareback?”

From the Advocate.com

PrEP and CondomsI started taking Truvada — the regimen otherwise known as pre-exposure prophylaxis, which greatly reduces the chance of HIV transmission among HIV-negative folks — a few months ago and have been asked this question ever since. For many gay and bi men I’ve talked to on Grindr, taking a daily pill like PrEP can seem like an unnecessary hassle and an unwarranted waste of money if you aren’t also having condomless sex. The fact of the matter is, I am devoted to PrEP, but I have absolutely no interest in doing bareback. If you’re anything like me, and you have to field questions like this with some frequency, here are some good justifications to cite.
