The PNP Meth scene is also huge in San Diego. Many who have been positive for years throw sex parties fueled by Meth & seek out new people to join in on their orgies. Almost always Bare-Backing is required helping to multiple the explosive infection rate in the gay community. I use my self & I am lucky that I remain Negative but my use is now sporadic. I went from near daily use to maybe using ever other month if that. Unfortunately I can't say that about many people I know dozens who are now HIV + Positive . Every Day a new person is infected. Its not just the drug but its the mind set of the person's willingness to either protect them self's or put them self in a risky situation. If your not willing to go Bare Back you can be excluded from the *Cliquish Meth Scene*. Most people who I know personally that use Meth on a regular are either positive or don't know their status. Its a very scary subculture. I am mostly into j/o to porn & non-penetrative sex namely oral & I believe that has truly helped me to avoid HIV infection, but it has also put me at odds with many other "tweakers" who enjoy Raw sex...Which is fine by me as my health is far more important then temporary fun that could shorten my life... Meth is bad enough on your health & HIV would just compound those effects further. Those of you out there who may use still please try to play it safe or at least practice less riskier acts such as J/O Oral ect...Another thing I noticed as well is Bottoms are more impacted by HIV for obvious reasons. If you're the receptive partner its your duty to use protection.
Thanks I wish you
all the best, I mean no offense to anyone I am just being candid with my
personal experience .I don't need judgement from anyone..."Judge not
least you be judged"
