Sex while HIV Positive: The New Criminals

As you and I relax here surfing the internet, an HIV positive man is sitting in a Texas prison, serving a 25-years sentence for spitting on someone. In Michigan, an HIV positive man was charged for not disclosing his status under a bio-terrorism statute. And just weeks ago Nadja Benaissa, an HIV positive German pop star barely escaped prison when a judge gave her a suspended sentence for not disclosing to her sexual partners. This is an emotional issue that carries some baggage. Many of u

Mark S King says : In the anxious world of sexuality and HIV risk, we could all use a little love and support. So, in the spirit of everyone getting the attention they deserve, allow me a moment to throw a party for HIV negative gay men.

In Praise of HIV Negative Gay Men!

HIV negative gay men hear a lot about what they should be doing (or not doing), but rarely about what they are doing well.

Clearly, HIV positive people are subjected to daily stigmatization and prejudice, from the workplace to the dating pool. But this isn’t a contest. Considering this blog site is devoted to living joyfully with H

Ken Monteith reports that AIDS Community Care Montreal (ACCM) has embarked on an innovative strategy to encourage HIV testing among gay men. It's called the ATOMc Project.

DEBI does Montréal

The ATOMcproject trains volunteers in techniques to recruit gay men from their social circles to encourage them to be tested, and the project is currently recruiting volunteers. (I’ll explain DEBI later on.) Allow me to let the project’s promotional video explain the project: (see first video below).  There is general recognition in the HIV movement that knowing one’s status is key to maintaining one’s own health and in raising awareness to prevent transmission to others. The prob

The always provocative Mark S King turns up the heat and turns the spotlight on sex clubs, serosorting and sensuality.

After dark: touring a sex club for positive gay men

The idea that HIV positive people still want sex is as old as The Denver Principles, the 1983 manifesto drawn up by gay men with AIDS that demanded “as full and satisfying a sexual and emotional life as anyone else.” The document also stated that people with HIV/AIDS have an ethical responsibility to share their status with others. Fast forward to today, and HIV positive gay men are as open as ever about their status and their sexual preferences (setting aside, if we can for the moment, th
