5. I just went out with a guy listed as HIV-negative but on the date he said his last test was 3 years ago. But he seemed offended when I insisted on condoms. Was I wrong?
Repeat after me: "It is never wrong to protect yourself and your health."
Anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable with making a decision regarding your own health is not worth your time. When it comes to sex and protection, it all boils down to being informed and being realistic. Safer sex is hot sex. Never, ever, apologize for making smart choices in regards to sex and HIV; the right guy will find that sexy as hell.
