New Survey About Bareback Sex Reveals A Disturbing Fact

dangerous truths about bareback sex

A recent survey by FS Magazine showed that the majority of gay and bisexual men didn’t use a condom the last time they had sex.

72% said they had bareback sex the last time they had intercourse with a man. Of that group, 32% said they didn’t use a condom the last time they were a top, and 37% said they didn’t use a condom the last time they bottomed. Only half of these men said it was with a long-term boyfriend/partner.

10% of the men who claimed they had casual sex without protection also admitted to being HIV-positive compared to 90% who only believed themselves to be negative.

Does this come as a surprise? Personally as someone who’s been through the casual sex ringer for a number of years, yes, it really does.

What the study fails to show however is how many guys were honest about their status, which are quite a few and most of them are undetectable. There are also countless of men who take care of their sexual health by taking PrEP. The study also fails to mention whether the men they’re sleeping with are HIV-positive as well, which might make a difference in public assessment.

I know men who are HIV-positive who share their status with partners beforehand, but there are also those out there who do not.

What’s disturbing is the number of guys I know on Grindr or other hookup apps who choose not to share their status because they feel men will judge them. They’re looking for sex just like everyone else on Grindr might be, and saying you’re positive can change things.

Despite available precautions like PrEP, bareback sex is still risky. There are always going to be nights when you’re in the moment, but the last thing you want to do is risk your health and future. If you choose to have casual sex, you must remember to protect yourself.

Don’t take what he says as the truth. Prepare yourself.
