Hey back on the blog again, I forget about it you know and it’s actually built into my website, so I should make more use of it. I decided, after the Daryll story that I was way overdue an HIV test. My last one was, I thought, 3 or 4 months ago but when I looked this morning, it was last January but I had not done anything silly anyway, it’s mainly for the peace and mind of clients.
My results came back this morning and they were negative, once again. I have had over 90 HIV tests over the years. I have now lost track on how many HIV tests I have had never mind how many men I have had. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Most men in the UK are not HIV positive anyway and if you have penetrative sex with a man with HIV and he ejaculates inside your arse, you have a around a 1.4 chance in 100 of falling victim to the disease. Oral sex is negligible. Even for penetrative sex it’s quite low. Having unsafe sex with a man on antiretroviral medication with an undetectable status will not pass on the virus at all, however he could pass on other nasties like HPV, Syphilis and Gonorrhoea.
The most important thing about sex work is keeping your client safe. This means regular checks, way and above what a normal member of the public would do and publishing your results for everyone to see, which is what I do.
