Gay relationships have less safe sex…
Gay men are more apt to practice safe sex with causal partners than they are with partners in serious relationships, U.S. researchers say.
Lead author Brian Mustanski of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine says about 80 percent of gay young men who are HIV positive don’t know it, because they aren’t being tested frequently enough.
“Being in a serious relationship provides a number of mental and physical health benefits, but it also increases behaviors that put you at risk for HIV transmission,” Brian Mustanski says in a statement. “Men who believe a relationship is serious mistakenly think they don’t need to protect themselves.” deets here
