Response from Dr. Frascino
Your husband does not sound like the most considerate fellow! I would suggest you bring this topic up with your and his HIV physician. (Perhaps you are seeing the same HIV specialist.) The HIV specialist should be helpful in explaining the risk of superinfection to your husband. You could also simply refuse to have sex with him without proper protection (latex condom). It takes two to do the unsafe horizontal mattress mambo. Maybe it's time to stop trying to convince him to do the right thing and instead just not allow him to have unprotected sex with you. You can also introduce him to this Web site and encourage him to become more informed.
