​DESIRE & MOTIVATION
​Your desire and motivation to remain HIV-negative, not to infect someone if you are HIV+, not to PnP or to do so with responsibility, to have safe sex or to BB (bareback, unsafe sex) and so on is the glue that holds all other HIV "prevention" messages together, the key force that drives local and global cultures to continue to support HIV "prevention". Please take a moment and think about how this information relates to you personally. Consider how this affects your choices; the people you form relationships with (sexually and socially), and understand the important role you play in keeping the promise of HIV Prevention and to the LGBTQ Community at large.

Getting infected with HIV OR infecting someone is NOT a "rite of passage" to adulthood. If you do not take your role in HIV Prevention SERIOUSLY, then all the HIV funding and political support to stop HIV are worthless.

PLAN FOR YOUR FUTURE NOW - TAKE A PRO-ACTIVE STAND TO STAY HIV- negative. It's not what we can do in life that makes a difference, it's what we WILL do today that creates change, and getting tested for HIV on a regular basis - once a month, once every two months or quarterly, is no different. The ONLY thing stopping you is YOU. Making decisions and using basic common sense; which is your desire and ability to take action, changes your life! This common sense is already in you and just needs to be set free; first by igniting that spark within you called DESIRE and secondly, by making a choice to stay HIV-negative (or NOT to infect someone) which is called FREEDOM OF CHOICE. 
​​This is the deciding moment in your life where you make time for yourself and draw the line in the sand, take HIV prevention SERIOUSLY and choose once and for all: A life of being HIV FREE (HIV-negative) or a life of expensive medications, side effects and lost time from school or work due to hospital visits because you're HIV+. I'm HIV+ since 1983 and to this day, NO ONE showed me how I can become HIV-negative again, so trust me on this: Once you become HIV+ there is NO going back. That's right, it only takes ONE time to become HIV+ and you're HIV+ for LIFE, and are faced with all the challenges that come with being HIV+. 

This is YOUR moment to decide and plan for your future NOW and stay HIV-negative or if you are HIV+ not to infect someone.

How can YOU remain HIV-negative in "today's world" of failed HIV messages, misinformation about "wonder drugs" like PrEP and lack of support? Simple, just follow a few basic common sense tips / steps to help you to stay the course. These steps you already know and have heard over and over countless times in the past, BUT this is no common website. As the pioneer of this HIV Prevention Strategy I'm no ordinary HIV Activist / Teacher, and this is NOT the past - THIS IS NOW and now mankind understands that the global HIV Prevention message just changed! 

THE POINT:
No matter what happened in your past and how many times you put off getting tested for HIV on a regular basis or PnP carelessly, NONE OF THAT MATTERS because each moment of every day is a NEW and FRESH OPPORTUNITY to get tested regularly or to PnP with moderation. 

WHAT are the steps to begin your life free of HIV, not infect someone or to PnP responsibility?
They are:


1) Take ACTION TODAY by choosing to remain HIV-negative for life, not to infect someone or to PnP responsibility. 

2) KNOW your HIV status - GET TESTED, if you PnP or drink know your limitations.

3) REINFORCE YOUR CONFIDENCE: 
    * Is having SAFE SEX (Safe Sex Serosorting) or Barebacking (Serosorting) with your own HIV status working for you? 
    * Are you not getting arrested for a DUI or PnP?
    * Did you enjoy your sexual encounter(s)?
    * Are you STILL HIV-negative or not in jail?

(If you answered YES to these questions, then just repeat the process: EXAMPLE: Get tested monthly, Have safe sex (or bareback) with your own HIV status, Reinforce your actions, Repeat the process.)

4) CREATE / JOIN social / supportive networks online or face to face, and be supportive of others who choose to remain HIV-negative. Networks can be with (but not limited to) Family, Friends, Sex Partners, online social sites, face to face support groups, community events and others.
