‘Jacob’ says he probably took thousands of loads of cum, starting when he was 14 years old – from partners who were HIV-negative, HIV-positive, or unknown status – before he became HIV-positive 15 years later.
“There were some periods of weeks or months where I was getting fucked every day, two or three times a day,” Jacob says. “By the time I was in my twenties, I started topping as well and that was nearly always bareback. After that much activity, and a lot of it unsafe, you start to think, ‘Am I immune?’ or ‘What the hell’s going on?’”
Surf bareback blogs and you’ll see other gay men who have had repeated exposure to HIV and stayed negative. Some come to believe they are immune. Is anyone immune to HIV?
