Precum and barebacking
      #186839 - 04/18/06 11:34 AM

I just finished reading through Dr. Bob's recent questions and answers. I am a bit confused on his answer to the question titled "barebacking" on March 18 of this year. Although the poster is a gay male, I can relate as a hetero female who has had a few encounters with men without ejaculation. How high is the risk? What do you think? I know there is a "theoretical risk" and at this point in my life I realize any risk is too high, however, what kind of statistics do you think would reflect unprotected sex with a person of unknown status, no ejaculation, maybe precum? How would you interpret Dr. Bob's answer to that question on March 18. By the way I was tested at 33 days post my last risky encounter, negative, but I know not definitive. Thanks!

There are too many variables involved to accurately predict the odds of unprotected sex without ejaculation. There is a higher risk if ejaculation occurs. It's not considered a theoretical risk if your partner does not ejaculate. It IS a risk. Although the anal cavity is more suseptible to infection than the vaginal wall, having precum present in either location will cause an infection.

Barebacking will not prevent infection. You need to use condoms at all times, not matter what.

Red like love, as a symbol of passion and tolerance towards those affected
