October 4, 2011

Posted: August 2012

This video blog is part of the series "My HIV Journey: 13 Months of Videos Following My Diagnosis." Check out a full list of entries in the series.

A viewer messaged me asking if I had any advice for positive people when hooking up. They went on to say that they find it perplexing when negative people that they hook up with ask them what is safe. Watch the video and let me know what you think.

Great informational video Aaron.......makes alot of sense...Also, What some negative people miss is that poz people deserve a fulfilling intimate and sexual life. If they understood that maybe the conversation about what is safe anfd what isn't would come more easily.

I sero-sert, so the conversation is simple, you either are positive or you are not. If you are great, if you are not sorry but there are lots of great guys who are POZ so will keep looking. Why do I chose to sero-sort, haven't been on both sides of the HIV fence I have chosen to not make sero difference status a stumbling block as hook ups can need to something more long term. Again, there are lots of great POZ guys out there so why would I look outside the POZ community?
