They don't have safer sex just because it's safer
"Sex. We all know how much we enjoy it. So why should our attitudes change when it comes to safer sex? After all, people were enjoying it long before the discovery of HIV or AIDS. By safer sex we simply mean any activity where infected blood or semen (or vaginal fluid) can't enter your body. Mutual masturbation, fingering, massage or body rubbing are just a few examples you may have heard of. But there are plenty of others you won't have, and half the fun is finding new ways to enjoy each other. Anal sex, however, is still the highest risk activity and even using a condom won't make it completely safe. If you'd like more information or advice, pick up a safer sex leaflet (available from gay bars and clubs), or ring your local helpline. Alternatively call the National AIDS Helpline free of charge on 0800 567 123. It's open 24 hours a day and it's completely confidential."
