Did you know that folks ages 40-49 make up the highest percentage of people diagnosed with advanced AIDS in the U.S.?
Here are their stories.
“I’d stayed HIV negative so long I thought I was Superman and started having condom-free sex.”
“We used petroleum jelly instead of water-based lubricant.”
“I caved to affection. And once you allow them not to wear a condom the first time, that’s it.”
“All I can say is, I wanted to experience the joy of the moment. I’m a heavy guy, and the thought that anyone wanted to have sex with me was encouraging.”
“We may feel more isolated, we’re not going out to clubs anymore, we may feel that people are judging us because we’re older and ‘should have known better.’”
