"My time in Amsterdam for the 2018 International AIDS Conference has proven that this fascinating city is certainly more 'sex positive' than most," Mark S. King notes.
"I totally understand the importance of enjoying sex," George Johnson writes. "But I also know it is even more important to make sure one is doing so safely -- and lube can play a major role in that process."
"As with all sexual and health choices, it's my decision about my body," says Evan J. Peterson, who continues to use condoms after two years on PrEP. "That doesn't mean I judge you for your choice not to use them."
"As someone who is in a mixed-status relationship where treatment as prevention (TaSP) is our chosen form of protection, I felt it was important to participate in the Undetectable = Uninfectious project," Josh Middleton writes.
It's sexual shame and stigma that can get in the way of safety -- not edgy sex and power play, says Dr. Tony Mills, a former International Mr. Leather and an HIV doctor who counts many kinksters among his patients.
After first seroconverting, for many reasons, Josh Kruger serosorted -- he only had sex with other positive guys. Since then, his attitude has changed.
"These guys must be getting the hang of this, because we discussed and revealed things like never before. From crystal meth addiction to our mothers, nothing was off limits."
"Most of my once fervently held objections to treatment as prevention, in 2013, make much less sense than they once did. The realist in me tells me that when it comes to HIV prevention, the status quo isn't working."
