Gay Men and HIV/AIDS: Where to Turn for Information and Advice


Sex and Dating

Sex and Dating

If you're a gay man with HIV, you can not only have safe and satisfying sex, but have a healthy attitude about it, too. That's true whether you're a sex pig or prefer to do it in more traditional ways, and it's true whether or not you decide it's worth the risk to have unprotected sex ("barebacking," "raw" sex, etc.). And did you know that there was an online dating and hookup site created with poz guys in mind?

On the flip side, some guys may at times find themselves in periods of celibacy -- sometimes voluntarily. Meanwhile, if you're an HIV-negative guy, there are plenty of things you can do to ensure that any relationship you have with an HIV-positive dude is fun and fulfilling (in every way). (Be sure to check out the next slide for specifics!)

We've got plenty of articles and videos on sex and dating for gay men. Browse away and find out how other guys, poz and neg, have navigated the dating scene.
