I'm HIV-. Reading the stories here about not disclosing until something bad has happened... well, it makes me think what slimey disgusting fuckers those guys are. I know I'm not being very understanding, but I find it simply evil.

Although I agree we should disclose our HIV status before having sex, I must also remind you how incredibly difficult this can be. HIV can make even a sex god feel like his touch is toxic. Living with that reality day in and day out can be devastating, particularly if your potential sex partners reject all physical contact because of your HIV status. The real answer here is not only to encourage HIVers to disclose, but also to educate neggies to reduce irrational fears and stigmatization and to promote safer sexual techniques for everyone poz or neg!
Take a read through the section on HIV disclosure in the archives to gain a better perspective on this issue.
