Insertive Condom for MSM Anal Sex
Here are two reasons why I, NewfieBear, likes to use the Insertive Condom for MSM Anal Sex:
- It’s not latex and it’s made with synthetic nitrile
- I personally like it when the insertive condom is in the male anus a few minutes before I insert my penis because the condom itself warms up inside of the body hence creating the bareback sensation yet it’s protected sex and it’s lowering your risk of STI’s

- Guys On Top Don’t Get HIV . . . Right? new update
- We’ve all heard that ’tops’ are less likely to get HIV than ’bottoms’. Sometimes guys will be on top during anal sex (or frontal sex with trans guys) in order to reduce their risk of getting HIV. When guys with different HIV statuses have unprotected anal or frontal sex, sometimes the negative guy will top the poz guy to reduce the risk of transmission. For more up-to-date information click the above hyperlink called "Guys On Top Don’t Get HIV . . . Right?".
- Telling Him I Want a Condom new update
- Sure, we know that condoms significantly reduce the risk of HIV transmission, but it isn’t always as easy as it sounds to have safer sex, even if you want to" Sometimes we don’t ask or insist on what we want because we’re afraid of rejection, or we might have other reasons. For more information click the above hyperlink called "Telling Him I Want a Condom".
- Feeling Down and Sex new update
- Ever noticed that your sexual appetite and behaviour change when you’re stressed? When you’re depressed? When you’re happy? Your state of mind affects how horny you get, how often you want sex, and what kind of sex you might have. For more information click the above hyperlink called "Feeling Down and Sex" .
I’m In a Relationship So We Don't Use Condoms - Will I Be OK? new update
- Many of us have accepted condoms as part of our sex life when we’re having casual sex outside of relationships, but it’s not unusual for guys who usually use condoms to stop using them when they get serious in a relationship. For more information click the above hyperlink called " I’m In a Relationship So We Don't Use Condoms - Will I Be OK? ".
- So . . . you do like to fuck! new update
- Good for you. Fucking is one great way to have sex. And sex not only feels good but it’s good for your health. For more information click the above hyperlink called " So. . . you do like to fuck! ".
- HIV Transmission Today new update
- We have learned a lot about how HIV is transmitted. When AIDS first hit our community, no one knew why gay and bisexual men were becoming sick, or how it could be prevented. In the absence of knowledge, people came up with their own theories and prevention methods. Some of them turned out to be useless, and some of them ended up working.

I cannot speak for the rest of the world but for myself this is something that I struggle with everytime I meet a new guy that I feel I have a real connection with.
Just when I think I have them figured out, in my experiences, it goes south and not in a good way.

STATEMENT OF THE MONTH: NOVEMBER 2013
STI's that are transmitted via oral sex?
If a person is infected with any of the following STI's , there is a risk they could transmit the infection via oral sex.
- The most common STI transmitted via oral sex is herpes. There are two main types of herpes simplex virus (HSV): HSV type 1, which usually causes cold sores around the mouth, and HSV type 2, which generally causes sores around the genitals. If a person has HSV type 1 and they give oral sex to another person, the herpes could be transmitted to the genital area of the other person, causing genital sores. This process can also work in reverse, with HSV-2 transmitting from the genitals to the mouth of the other person during oral sex, though this is rare.
- Gonorrhea can easily be transmitted via oral sex. The infection is usually passed from infected genitals to a person's throat, but can also be passed from an infected throat to a person's genitals. The body will almost always naturally clear the throat of the bacteria that cause gonorrhea within three months, although infections in the genital tract will usually require antibiotics to cure.
- Syphilis is easily transmitted during oral sex if a person’s mouth comes into contact with an open sore or a skin rash caused by the infection.
- It is possible (but thought to be not very common) for the human papillomavirus, which causes genital warts, to be transmitted through oral sex.
- Chlamydia can infect the throat via oral sex, although this is thought to be uncommon. People with chlamydia may not have any symptoms and may not be aware they are infected.
- The hepatitis A virus is found in human faeces, and may be passed on during anal-oral sex.
- Hepatitis B is contained in sexual fluids and blood and may be transmitted during oral sex in a similar way to HIV.
- Hepatitis C is generally only contained in blood, and will only be transmitted if there is blood present during oral sex.
- Gastrointestinal infections and parasites may be passed on during oral contact with the anus.
