Hiv - The Good News And The Bad News

11 posts in this topic

It seems there is now a reliable HIV prophylaxis out there, that can be taken by high risk groups to prevent infection and the spread of Aids. The only way to test it was dispensing with condoms, somewhat naturally. The effect has been a considerable increase in the spread of other STIs.

 

So, I have questions for the ladies AND the gents:

 

Bearing in mind that you have no way of ascertaining that the other party is actually taking the drug reliably, I'd love to know if the clients would be more inclined to ask for bareback, and if the ladies would be more inclined to provide it, on the basis that every other STI out there can be treated (unless you believe reports that there is a strain of "super-clap" out there that doesn't respond to antibiotics any more).

 

An extra question to the ladies: would you be prepared to take a daily dose of a drug with as yet unknown long-term side effects in order to be able to offer bareback?

Categorically no for me.

 

Under no circumstance would I offer bareback to a client, there are people out there who have an STI and do not know it because there are no symptoms, then there are devious people or "bug chasers" who would seek out bareback sex in order to infect another. So its a no from me! :)

I grew up in the 1980's in a city that had a high rate of intravenous drug use and a IV technique called 'flushing' - which led to rampant HIV in the city. As a result the school system scared the be-jesus out of us all about drugs, STDs and HIV in particular. So, no the appearance of a new prophylactic drug on the scence would not persuade me to adopt risky behaviour in any way at all.

 

My understanding is that the drug is available via the NHS (free) to only the most at risk - but that perscription will most likely broaden significantly as the cost continues to drop. The cost is currently around £3,000 per annum.

 

More interesting quesitons might be:

 

How much further would the price of the new drug need to fall by for you to be tempted to self-fund?

 

or

 

Would you voluntarily present yourself to a GUM clinic as a very high risk person simply in order to be put on the current trial?

I thought it was interesting that all but 4 patients in the trial were homosexual. What's the betting the 4 were intravenous drug users? Would healthy heterosexuals be eligible for the trial at all, or would they simply not be considered sufficiently "high risk"?

In general Female to Male transmission is much less likely - for a variety of STDs. So heterosexual males would be low risk generally - assuming they are not IV drug users.

 

In general Male to Female transmission is more likely - for a variety of STDs. So, perhaps a Female Escort who is offering A-levels, and who wanted to take an extra safety precaution might be tempted to take the new prophylactic drug???

 

But yes, you are right. Male to Male transmission via anal sex among a very small but very promiscuous portion of the gay male community who have unfortunately decided to stop using condoms - that is the current target for the trial. And quite understandably so!

I'll be interested in seeing how long this thread remains, I have had a couple of posts on bb taken down, even they were not condoning it, nor asking for information.

See the more recent news report on this board about the antibiotic resistant gonorrhoea in the Leeds area - which clearly confirms its existence.
