POSITIVE THINKING ALONE WON’T PREVENT AIDS.
Make no mistake; positive thinking is powerful.
But some gay and bisexual men think it’s powerful enough to protect them from AIDS, and it’s not.
You also need knowledge. And commitment. And caution.
Most of us in the gay community have all of these. The latest research says that over eighty percent of us insist on safe sex, and that truly saves lives.
So learn what’s safe and unsafe. Study the Sexual Safety Card below, and faithfully follow its instructions every time you have sex.
Because safe sex is the new rule of the road.
Of that you can be positive.
THE SEXUAL SAFETY CARD.
Mutual masturbation, Dry kissing, Body rubbing, Unshared sex toys
