this is it
Carly Binding is throwing her support behind a new campaign to encourage condom use for gay male couples. The “Love Is” campaign will be launched next Tuesday, and uses Binding’s single “This is it”. According to this site 40 percent of men with a regular partner are unsure about their own HIV status, let alone their partners.
Why is that?
A signifcant number of men in relationships are becoming HIV+ because they stopped wearing condoms. How many of these people got HIV because they were having sex with a person who was not HIV+? I would have thought the fact that someone had HIV was more relevant than if they were wearing condoms. The Love Is website notes that last year 89 gay men tested positive for HIV,adding that some of them were in serious relationships at the time. The site doesn't mention that most weren't.
If you are not sure of your HIV status, get tested. If you or your partner is HIV+, always wear a condom. If you both have HIV, does it really matter anyway?
Lets see some figures on HIV+ tests for those who are in committed relationships. On that note, let's see some stats on how many syphilis cases among gay men are men in committed relationships.
It`s the swingers out for the sex we need to be worried about, not just those in loving committed relationships. They`re the ones less likely to wear condoms.Love doesn't come into it.
This is really bad marketing.
