Gay Sex & Risk - The basics of HIV prevention for gay men

Gay Sex & Risk

The basics of HIV prevention for gay men - This booklet explains how to avoid getting HIV and how to avoid passing it on to others.
This booklet provides information about looking after yourself and having fun at the same time.
In New Zealand, the gay community has been the most seriously affected by HIV. When the epidemic first hit in the 1980s, gay men made dramatic changes to their sexual practices—especially by using condoms—to protect themselves and their partners. These changes formed the beginning of a safe sex culture.

Now, over 30 years later, we know a lot more about HIV, including the ways in which it is transmitted. There are now also new ways of reducing the risk of HIV transmission.
Although on average, several hundred people are diagnosed with HIV every year in New Zealand (most of which are gay men), with the new technologies at our disposal there is now a real possibility that we can reduce the number of gay men getting HIV every year and even end transmission of HIV.

This booklet covers:

  • What is HIV?
  • Fucking
  • Can my Boyfriend and I fuck without condoms?
  • Sucking
  • Condoms
  • Sex Play & HIV
  • PEP (Post_Exposure Prophylaxis)
  • STIs (Sexually Transmissible Infections)

  • PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis)
We hope that this free publication from Body Positive will help you:
