Are You Having "Bad Sex"?

June 10, 2014

I love to watch the TV show "Bad Sex" on LogoTV. Mostly it is because I think the host Chris Donaghue is amazingly hot and I have a huge man crush on him, but also because at times it can be a real train wreck. With each episode I find that on some level I am able to relate to something most of the members of the show are going through, it can be some small aspect or it can be the main reason they are there seeking treatment.

If you do not know what "Bad Sex" is or you have just never watched it, here is the jist of it. Dr. Chris Donaghue is a sex therapist. He brings in people who for different reasons are having issues with maintaining a healthy sexual lifestyle. It could be anywhere on the spectrum that they are just not turned on by sexual intercourse to they are addicted to having sexual relations with multiple people multiple times a day. There is a little bit of everything represented on the show. Dr. Donaghue works with them in a group therapy atmosphere and also one-on-one. Though his therapy sessions he works with each individual to find out what is causing them to not be able to have a healthy sex life and then to work though those issues.

Personally I believe we could all learn something from just listening to what is talked about on the show. You never know, you might find that someone on the show is having the same issues that you are.

By watching the show and looking at my own past sexual experiences I realize that I was abusing sex and engaging in "bad sex" on a regular basis. This not only effected me but other partners as well. There was a time where I was one of those who was addicted to sex and I did not care where or how I got it, as long as I got it when I wanted. This put me and everyone that I was sleeping around with at risk. I was not protecting myself or taking care of myself the way I know I should of been and that resulted in my being infected with HIV. This type of risky sexual behavior is what got me into the situation I am in today. I think many of us can relate to that on some level or another and have similar situations where we knew better but we still did not act on our better judgment.

I am not here to scare anyone away from having sex, because lets face it, we are all adults and we all know we get those urges from time to time. All I am trying to say is that there is a way to have healthy, safe, and fun sex while not going over board. We just have to start taking better care at protecting ourselves. Just be smart about it.

This is my story of how I found out I was HIV-positive while still on Active Duty in the United States Marine Corps and how I have tried to put the pieces of my life back together through the good times and the bad. I am currently a full time student working on a degree in Information Security Technology, which seems to be taking forever. I want to help make a difference and erase HIV related Stigma in the South, where due to lack of education people still do not know that much about HIV. If my story reaches out and helps at least one person, then I have made a difference.
