Word on the Street: PrEP Use by Gay and Bisexual Men

I think if persons in my area know that they can get something like that, they will go around having unprotected sex just the same, thinking "Oh, I'm immune against HIV and AIDS, so everything is all right." And there are other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) other than HIV. So they can pick up other infections, as well. When they come with PrEP, it's only pushing a negative person to say, "You know what? I have something I can run with to remain negative." Then now they'll be more risky; they'll take more risks with their life.
