You're about to have sex with someone. He/She tells you "I have AIDS -- but don't worry; we'll use a condom." Do you still proceed to have sex with this person?

Yes.  I would trust a condom to save me from contracting a disease that causes slow, painful death

    Taking that kind of chance just for a few minutes of getting a possible thrill, is stupid beyond stupid.

    I would think this would be a real mood killer for anybody in their right mind. In fact, if I were a woman and was apparently about to get raped, the first thing I would do is tell the guy(s) I have AIDS, and hope like hell they don't already really have it.

    Nope... There is a reason why the Viagra commercials say "Check with your doctor to make sure you are healthy enough for sex".. I mean really, if there is a high risk that your death will result from sex, it looses its fun factor really quick.

    If I just met someone and they told me they had AIDS, I would be asking questions about the disease. Last I knew, Nonyxnyl (spelling) 9, a spermicide when used in conjunction with condoms was effective in blocking transmission of this horrible virus. I could be wrong about this as the information is old. I believe a frank discussion about all std's is needed between all potential partners - it is a sign a maturity (imho).

    Depends on how much money I had to buy a supplement online to take care of my husband so often and if he would take it. I know a condom wouldn't offer enough protection though.

    No way. I'm repulsed and disgusted at the person who would say such a thing. That person doesn't care they could be jeopardizing another person's health. It's not very effective and no guarantees. I would also be asking them also how they got it. But either way the answer remains the same.

    Aids can be spread by more than just exchange of reproductive fluids. Be gone and take your cooties with you.

    no~ simple fact~condoms are not 100% effective against pregnancies and they are NOT an very effective preventive measure against sexually contracted diseases... i can be friends with an aids victim but i could not have sex with them

    No, that is stupid. Only an idiot would do that. There are billions of other women that don't have aids.

    Exactly! That's why I don't get this whole "safe sex" thing.

    Under the logic of "safe sex," you shouldn't have sex at all with a person who you know has AIDS. But it's okay to have sex using a condom with a person if you have NO idea whether they have AIDS or not.

    Am I the only one that sees the lunacy in that line of thinking?
  • Anna KoAm 2011/04/28 05:55:56

    I think so. I don't know what lunacy in that line means though. You like on the puny side having to organically fertilize yourself???

    Even though condoms are supposed to protect you, AIDS is in fact the one disease you can never get rid of. Yes I know there's a lot more but AIDS is the top disease I would think everyone fears

    Sorry, I don't follow. The person just told you they have AIDS. And you're wearing a condom.

    How does "it depends on how much I trust them" play into this? AIDS isn't transmitted via untrustworthiness.
  • Anna KoAm 2011/04/28 06:04:46

    I don't know where you live, but because: we, as Americans, weigh the pros and cons of how much we know a person or sense if they're teasing us or just telling us a story or what. A person could seem nice but here there are people that put groceries in the wrong places or try to put on stores deodorant in public and not everybody uses their manners and we in the United States have 3 or 4 time zones and our minds can go a whole day pretty much thinking about nothing. We're more 'loners' compared to other countries that can just go about thinking the way we want.

    Whether the person is a stranger or someone you know, they still have AIDS.

    In both cases, you're having sex with an AIDS-afflicted person. In both cases, you're trusting a condom to protect your very life.

    I don't intend to be mean, but your logic really eludes me. You're not any safer from AIDS is you have sex with an AIDS victim who you know ... as opposed to an AIDS victims you don't know. They both have AIDS.

    I know i'm not any safer from catching aids if I have sex with someone that i know who has it vs. someone I don't know.
    Its more of a mental thing for me, I would just feel more comfortable having sex with someone with aids if it was someone I knew and trusted, rather then someone I don't know. Even though it has no effect on my chances of catching the disease, like I said, its purely an emotional and mental thing. Sorry for the confusion.
