The Future of Anal Sex

January 5, 2008 at 7:49 am 6 comments

Most of us use lube when we have butt sex, to get the ass nice and slick. Wouldn’t it be nice if the lube also had a special ingredient that offered some protection against HIV and other STDs?

With that opening paragraph, Jim Pickett of AIDS Chicago begins a fantastic post called The Future of Anal Sex on rectal microbicides and their possibility for reducing HIV infection among gay men. Since Jim and I connected last October when I did an interview with him that you can read here, he has become one of my favorite activists. He has a lot of smart things to say about gay men, sex and why we need more innovative approaches to building stronger and healthier gay male communities.

Read the rest of The Future of Anal Sex.

See what else Jim has to say at the smart and sassy blog Life Lube.

    Actually, incogman, heterosexual couples are more likely to engage in anal sex than homosexual couples. Are they wrong, too? And what’s with the name? Are you too chicken to make such statements openly?

    Truly ignorant!

    Get your facts together, Mary.

    Anal sex is prevalent all over the world – most of it practiced between men and women. Do your research before you start spitting up stupidity, hon.

    I am waiting for your Larry Craig moment. You seem to have the kind of obsession with homosexuality that self-hating closet cases have.

    From your comments, we can take that not only do you dream constantly about homosex, but also that you are a racist fool.

    Your comments show the same level of political analysis as an amoeba.

    Grow up. Realize that the world does not revolve around you and get some psychological help.

    For the record, I have deleted the homophobic and racist ravings of Incogman. There is no place for that kind of bull here.

    Incogman, go peddle your filth elsewhere.
