SEXUAL SAFETY IS A TWO-WAY STREET.
If you are gay, you probably know that most gay men have given up the sexual practices that spread AIDS. But maybe you don’t know why.
Three out of four gay men surveyed say they no longer practice unsafe sex. And most say that their motive is the safety of their partner. Not their own safety—their partner’s safety.
Now, you may insist on sexual safety because AIDS can kill you. And good for you if you do. But don’t forget that unsafe sex puts two lives at stake.
don’t let down your guard. don’t let down your partner.
A good policy, don’t you think?
For your partner’s sake and your own, please follow the new rules of the road.
