First and foremost condoms do not reduce intimacy. Intamacy is the feelings brought on emotionally and physically between two people, has nothing to do with a slight "barrier" like a condom. If you feel no intimacy because of a condom, I would assess the relationship first then, and from there assess your own thinking.

Our poster claims he has created a "wall" in his thinking, which is just that ... an insecurity he has created. Has nothing to do with a condom.

It is however attitudes like "it might be a risk worth taking if it brings connection and intimacy back into your relationship" ... that keeps the HIV virus multiplying and moving from person to person. People with HIV, as I mentioned in my earlier post, have a responsibility to protect people and stop passing it along. Finally that definition of undetectable being "very, very, very low risk" ... again as I have mentioned in the past ... Russian Roulette only has one bullet in one chamber, care to play!!!!

anotherday ... in paradise!
daily ponder ... be the reason someone smiles today!
