Changing the topic on sex......I hope
« on: January 28, 2007, 11:21:07 PM »
this sex thing is really on fire! when i was playn' around i treated everyone like they were positive. safe sex....itz not all that hard. so of course something went wrong. as iv said b4 i have some ideas but y ponder.

guess i cant say im not new to this any more....since june. but @ least the meds dont make sick...or all that sick.

so before the next wave of misery hits...i wanna meet some 'cool poz people'. as profiles state....anything from sex to travel partner <remember i fly for free>....lol .friends r all neg or so they say. and i would like to just have the neg/poz thing done and over w/ when i meet folks.

so what do u alll suggest?....the internet sites seem awful for meeting people! or so it seems. i dont think i have the stamina do a bar w/ the poz thing hagn' over my head.<is he or isnt he>. iv looked at some poz parties and they look fun....mayb a little outa control. <and im not talkn' bb> just some fricken fun.

so for some1 back new in the game what and where r the suggestions?

Hey Fierce.  I am johnny one note on this.  I think, I hope, that the internet sites (such as the one on poz.com) should be/could be an answer (and continue to hope that we can find a place to focus on what the problems are with them so that we can fix the model) since, as you said, the poz/neg thing is a non-issue.  Yes, the bars or any place for that matter- a community center- present the disclosure problem.  From what I could see of the NYC positive parties, they were geared for sex, yes, but not for getting past or beyond it, sort of the way the guys you met and had sex with in bathhouses were for that purpose only, not to be taken out. :)  I think we need a Michael Callen, a yenta, someone as go between, bringing person A and person B together, hearing the complaints, offering suggestions, reminding online posters that this isn't an art gallery for their portrait, editing off 2 year old profiles, offering a.m. gatherings for poz personal profilers to meet each other and be forced to face that person who keeps flirting with you.  ;D As usual, I think that those of us who are positive, who are trying to meet others who are positive or at least open to meeting people who are positive, have got to be more proactive about the process.  (So, yes, I can congratulate Brandon for starting his Poz parties and a person who used to have 'a list' with bar nights in NYC.)  Win
