Ex has intentionally exposed himself
      #199100 - 07/06/06 05:09 PM

I am a female and my exBF (we remain friends) has intentionally exposed himself 2 months ago. He did the mail in test today. I am very upset and angry and worried, but most of all he needs help, both physical and mental. Is there anything I can do for him? I know this is 'his' problem, and I can't fix it, but I do want to be a supportive friend. I just feel so helpless.

What do you mean by intentionally exposed himself? That statement could have a lot of meanings. Do you mean he had a risky encounter with a person of unknown HIV status? That is not really intentionally exposing himself to HIV, just potentially exposing himself to it. If you mean he intentionally sought out someone with HIV and had an encounter with them, then that would be intentionally exposing himself.

What do you mean by intentional exposured himself. He went seeking an HIV+ person and told them that he wanted to have unprotected sex for the purpose of infecting himself

or

he was in a relationship with an HIV+ person and you think that means he intentionally exposed himself.

or

he just had unprotected sex and really doesn't know the status of his partner?

I mean he had sex with an HIV positive man. And requested that the guy not wear a condom so that he could be exposed.

That is a very odd behavior you describe. There are a lot less complicated and quicker ways to commit suicide.

yes, it is very odd.
And yes, I have pointed out that fact to him.
Hence the reason I feel so helpless....
He was at a party where the other were of unknown status, except for this one particular person.
He had 3 encounters with this man. And was later referred to as 'branded'

Once you get it then you don't have to worry anymore. You don't have to worry about dodging the bullet anymore.

There is nothing you can do. He has made the decision to do what he wants with his body and with whom. You need to let him know you care, but step off and let him handle his own affairs. This is in God's hands now.
