We’re justvery, very careful.[Interviewer: Do you ever have anal sex with him?]Respondent: Yes. He makes me wear two [condoms]They’re uncomfortable but yeah …”experiences of hiv THE SEROCONVERSION STUDY 2010; Down I et al
  • 6. quotes“ Risk and safe sex change over time. Safe sex iswhen both parties enter into any risk with consent. Itsabout being intimate… Its not just about fucking. Thebest sex in my opinion is when its more about the lovethan lust.I wouldn’t say safe sex is just about having protection.I currently have an undetectable viral load. The risk ofpassing on HIV is minimal. Weve reached a point inour relationship where we’ve decided not to usecondoms. We’ve discussed the risk and he’s okay withit” DanielSERO DISCO 2, WHY ET HIV GET IN THE WAY OF AGOOD RELATIONSHIP why let HIV get in the way of agood relationship Positive Life NSW
  • 7. Of course unprotected sex is so good you forget the risk [I]always think about HIV but pleasure takes overPleasure And Sexual Health Study (PASH) 2009NCHECR (Kirby) Prestage G et al“Inever sought out positive before but thereafter yes, I did.Because, you know, well it would be irresponsible to seek outnegative ones. And kind of the whole point too was because then,you know, if you’re gonna have sex with them there’s a wholeguilt trip. So, you know, which is not, not a very good thing toexpose yourself to. experiences of hiv THESEROCONVERSION STUDY 2010; Kirby Institute. Down Iet al
  • 8. Of course, the problem is if you actually fall in lovewith somebody who’s negative. That’s, that’s when itbecomes difficult. So …[Interviewer: Has that happened?]Yeah, that happened. [laughs] And it was very difficultfor us both because, so we basically didn’t proceedany further.[Interviewer So how did you, how did you meet thisperson?]Through work. But … but we couldn’t go further. Itwas a decision where you just can’t go further with arelationship – positive/negative – because the damagethat can be done to the negative partner and probablywould be done is not a responsibility that I’d like tocarry. I mean a casual partner who’s positive, yeah,there’s nothing wrong with being positive. If you fall inlove with someone who’s negative, yes, being positiveis a real bitch.experiences of hiv THE SEROCONVERSION STUDY 2010;Down I et,al
