Do you agree with this??

Jan 7, 2006

Dr. B - Of course, I should be using The Body as my site for accurate information. However, my eyes strayed a bit - and I saw this quote from a MD. Can I get your opinion on it?

"Looked at another way: A gay man who has casual partners without sharing HIV status, but who is dedicated to universal condom use, has a fairly high risk of acquring HIV someday. Most straight men and women do not. Cheers--- HHH, MD"

Response from Dr. Frascino


Nope. I do not agree. As stated, that comment makes no sense whatsoever. Proper condom use is equally protective for both gays and straights. Viruses don't really care about sexual orientation.

You are correct: you should be using this site for more accurate information.
