World Aids Day
World Aids Day 1st December
- LOVE, SUPPORT, PREVENTION, HELP, RESPECT -
We move from Movember - which was a month to raise awareness in mental health and prostate cancer in men and into December. My local gym raised £2800 for the cause with the company in general showing an overall contribution of over 90k!. December the first is the World Aids Day; which though it's aimed at all sexes, men are at greater risk due to unprotected sex. Often through the gay community or domestic abuse. I find this particularly true having experienced online the vast number of men looking for what is known as 'Bare Back Sex' and 'Breeding fucks' and group sessions being used as 'Cum Whores'.
This page that I've created will give some general information to help you gain some knowledge and where to get help from if you need it. Near the bottom, I have provided various links to information sources to help you gain further reading and facts to further your prevention and support.
For most people who get infected; they experience a short, flu-like illness for around 2-6 weeks after HIV has taken hold from an infected source ,
which lasts for a week or two.
GROUPS PARTICULARLY AT RISK but not limited to, ARE...
Men who have sex with men
Black African heterosexuals
People who share needles, syringes or other injecting equipment.
WHAT IS HIV and AIDS?
HIV ( human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the immune system.
If HIV is left untreated, a person’s immune system will get weaker and weaker until it can no longer fight off life-threatening infections and diseases.
Testing regularly for HIV means you can get antiretroviral treatment if you need it and stay healthy.
AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) describes a set of symptoms and illnesses that happen at the final stage of HIV infection, if left untreated.
Recent figures for the UK.
HIV transmisson can be easily done through a number of ways.
You can only get HIV through certain bodily fluids of an infected person (e.g. blood, semen, breast milk).
HIV can be transmitted during unprotected sex; through sharing injecting equipment; from mother-to-baby during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding; and through contaminated blood transfusion.
HIV in an infected person can be found in...
His or her blood.
Semen and pre-seminal fluid (“pre-cum”)
Rectal fluids/anal mucous
To get infected, these bodily fluids need to get into your blood through a mucous membrane (for example the lining of the vagina, rectum, the opening of the penis, or the mouth), breaks in the skin (like cuts), or be injected directly into your bloodstream. Other bodily fluids, like saliva, sweat or urine, don't contain enough of the virus to transmit it to another person.
ANY SYMPTOMS ?
This process can vary from person to person, but may take up to 10 years, during which you'll feel and appear well.
Once the immune system becomes severely damaged, symptoms can include:
Serious life-threatening illnesses
Earlier diagnosis and treatment of HIV can prevent these problems.
LIVING WITH HIV & AIDS
Finding out that you have the virus is a massive blow to both the mind and the well being of yourself. It isn't the death sentence that it used to be. With modern medicine giving a very long life expectancy with suppressing the virus to the point of not being detectable so long as the medication is regularly taken.

HAVE SELF WORTH
So you read all the information and you think, how can people still get infected knowing all of this. Well here I will given you some examples taken from text I did four months ago on a popular kinkster website.
I work majority in the Male kink scene to deliberately offer a safe environment to have their kink fix regardless of life circumstances and sexual preference. I also do it so I am affordable and not looking to ruin someone’s standard of life. I’m not judgmental and keep my tools of the trade clean with hospital grade products. I use gloves to touch anyone and condoms On any toys I use.
Now, what I can not understand good enough is how the Male scene, Particularly in the gay/bi community, have very little self-worth when it comes to kink.
41m Master. Blank Profile is a few days old.
Interests are bare back fucking, deep throat fucking and gangbangs.
Seeks lads to use abuse, gangbang fuck and can accommodate at his house at such a time and place to tie you up and use.
Replies almost instant begging for it.
Let me put this into perspective for you all.
“There is also evidence that awareness and knowledge around HIV is dropping in the UK. A recent survey found that only 45% of the population could correctly identify all of the ways in which HIV is and isn’t transmitted.”
“Since the 1980s, men who have sex with men (sometimes referred to as MSM) have remained the group most at risk of HIV in the UK. In 2016, an estimated 46,000 men who have sex with men were living with HIV. This means roughly 77 out of every 1,000 men (aged 15 to 59) who have sex with men are living with HIV. In London, it is an even greater number with 128 out of every 1,000 living with HIV.
It is estimated that in 2016 around 6,100 men who have sex with men were living with undiagnosed HIV, 59% of whom were aged 15 to 34.”
Information from www.avert.org
Sexual health is no joke, use protection. Take your personal safety into consideration. No one wants mugging and to be left for dead. Gay men are targeted in crime a lot due to dogging, cottaging and the overwhelming number of men that will go to meet complete strangers who have no credibility on who they are actually meeting.
Use swinger clubs, saunas and munches to meet people in a public safer environment rather than an alleyway or at a strangers house.
The next time that someone puts a cock to your face think, where has his been, do I want the possibility of oral thrush? Or worse if you have even the slightest of bleeding gums ? You could get far worse via bodily fluid cross over.
It irritates me that males whom identify as submissive and slaves are considered lesser than female counterparts. Men are expected to be worthless mindless things to do the bidding of anyone demanding it.
Anyone that considers themselves worthless, then that’s how you will be treated until your attitude adjusts. Even if for example, you enjoy serving and being obedient, enjoy being a sissy or being trained anally, none of this makes you worthless. The way you perceive yourself is what makes you have self-worth.
I will not give out of session time to anyone that’s snivelling and full of self-pity. If you pay me then I’ll give you the service you want as that’s what I’m good for. You will have fun, get your fix and you most likely won’t speak to me again until you need your next fix.
Which is ok. honestly. But, don’t let the itch build up to a point that it affects your day to day life for fear of shame in your kink. Which many do and then jump into the first unsafe scenario that comes along and possibly get physically and mentally hurt. Or contracting a STI or even HIV.
If you don’t want to better yourself and you just want that kink itch-scratch then I’m not judging you in any way and I’m here to help where I can.
Regardless of sexual orientation, a slave, sub or whatever the role is, a person needs guidance and help to be a better, stronger human being. Why beat someone down who is already at rock bottom? That’s not fun, it’s just boring and means that you lack the skill to improve a troubled canvas. Pouring water on a sand castle is being a bully, helping to dig a moat is helping to build and maintain pride.
Have some self worth and use common sense. Use Protection, Health & Mind are Valuble and makes everyone rich in their own way.
