Earlier this month, The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene released a video that every homosexual should watch. That’s particularly true for those who take Truvada as PrEP and use it as a license to have unprotected sex.
The video defines Prep as “an easy to take daily pill that reduces your risk of HIV infection by over 90-percent. If you’re positive, HIV treatment can keep viral loads undetectable and your partner safe.”
“Condoms,” the narrator adds, “provide additional protection against HIV and other STIs.”
This is an important distinction at a time when 44.5-percent of men who have sex with men in New York have apparently abandoned condoms and STIs are gaining ground. Syphilis is trending among gay men. Homosexuals make up 83-percent of all such cases in the city. Gonorrhea is also on the rise, with a 50-percent increase in cases among men between 2000 and 2013.
If you are what you eat and you’ve swallowed some random dude’s “manhood” lately, take a look at this (you might want to stick your finger down your throat and call your doctor):
Yours truly previously joked that PrEP seemed like “homosexual birth control,” but the statistics are no laughing matter.
“Play sure,” The New York City Health Department says. “That means finding the right protection combination that works for you.”
That combination might look something like this: 1. Taking medicines to treat or prevent HIV; 2. Using condoms as often as possible; and 3. Using plenty of water-based or silicon-based lube.
Finally, get tested. Homosexuals should get their blood drawn every three to six months.
