safe sex but...
      #2193 - 04/04/00 11:07 PM

I am an hiv+ female, that recently had safe sex with a male, but did not divulge to him my current status. I really like this man, but am afraid of the repercussions of telling him, and of potential criminal charges. I insisted he not come near me without a condom, and he didn't.

I live in Canada, so the laws may be different.

Any opinions on this would be greatly appreciated. I live near him, and am worried he may try to humiliate my in front of mutual friends by telling them if I tell him. I've been told to just walk away from him, let it go - but I have feelings for him now.

I think it is GREAT that you insisted on safe sex. However, if I were him I would really want to and have the right to know this information. What if something happened.. what if the condom broke? If someone is willing to take the risk, that is one thing, otherwise, it is NOT fair. I have also heard that the chances of a man getting HIV from heterosexual sex is somewhere between 1:300 and 1:1000. So, it would probably be safe, but I just really think he has the right to know!!!
