An active sex life is possible
      #1022 - 03/31/00 03:53 AM

Having an active sex life if you are negative and your partner is
positive is really possible. I didn't think so either and so I
did a lot of research--I think The Body has an article from Body
positive about sex if your partner is HIV positive. Anyway, as
long as you always use a condom AND really know how to use this
condom, it's ok. You can do lots of other things--using saran
wrap.... You just have to be really careful and realize that
there have been studies with HIV+/HIV- couples and very few
infections. Safe Sex works--you have to just believe in it and be
disciplined. Of course you'll find there is a little anxiety for
the negative partner--get a friend or a therapist or somebody to
talk over your anxiety. --I used to always think about car
accidents when I drove since I knew the high rate of accidents
and even though I'm still a little afraid on highways I got used
to the risk and just am really careful. Good luck! It sounds like
you have a sweet son.

Thanks for the advice re:HIV+/HIV- couples. Once my husband
recovers from the chemo (T-cell lymphoma) we both hope he will be
up to a go at it(Grin).

Thank you so much for the advice. I read the article in Body
Positive about having safe sex if you are HIV positive and talked
(finally) to people in my support group about it. It's true. You
can have a sex life! And it is safe if you are ALWAYS careful! MK
