About PrEP

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a medication for HIV negative people that's been around since 2012. It's a pill used to reduce your risk of contracting HIV and is extremely effective when taken properly. PrEP only protects you against HIV. You need to take other precautions to reduce your risk of contracting other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) is also a medication for HIV negative people used after you've had unsafe sex. It can stop the HIV infection if you act quickly - ideally within 24 hours.

Please inform yourself about the availability of these drugs in your country. For more information, please consult Google.

Underestimated Risks

You will hear often "I'm clean", "I'm healthy" or "I'm negative". Don't trust these words! Even with the best intentions, nobody can gaurantee that they are HIV negative. You should ALWAYS assume that your sex partner might be HIV positive.

Try not to get carried away at the beginning of a relationship. Both of you should get tested, and then decide whether or not to use a condom. Create a secure situation so you both can be honest. Is your relationship in trouble and you've had unsafe sex? Tell him!

Just because he is a friend of a friend, you met at a party and talked the whole night, doesn't mean he isn't HIV positive. Viruses like everyone. Don't make your safer sex choices dependent on where and how you meet a guy.

Our Opinion

You know what you're doing? Great! For everyone else we have only one request: please inform yourself about safer sex options. Take your time - it's your health and it's your life. Jerk off, calm down and get a clear head. Make a conscious decision. Stick to it! Of course, you can reconsider your decision at any time - but not when you're horny, on all fours, and with a huge hard cock demanding entrance.

We wish you lots of safe fun!

Want more info?
