--Know your HIV status
--Protect yourself by using condoms for anal sex
There are a lot of myths and fallacies out there on the subject of male to male safer sex. Sometimes, the answers to your questions aren't clear-cut. At Rentboy.com, we believe that the key to sexual health is knowledge and protection—know the risks, get tested regularly for STDs, protect yourself and your partners.
The most important thing you can do to keep yourself safe is to use a condom for anal sex, to protect against the spread of the HIV virus. No matter what your age, you are never too young or too old to be at risk for HIV infection. But there are other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to watch out for, such as gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis, genital warts, and herpes. For all of these STDs, the risk of transmission is greatly reduced by using a condom for anal sex, whether you are HIV positive or negative.
Every sexually active adult should be tested regularly for the most common STDs. Don't guess about whether you have an STD--see a doctor or go to your local clinic, especially if you have any worrisome symptoms. Early treatment will ease your anxiety and keep you and your partners healthy and happy.
