I've always known you can't get HIV through kissing (it's a simple, safe activity), but the irrational mind is powerful.
Today I have many friends I love who are HIV-positive, and I make a point to kiss each and every one of them.
And those of us who are HIV-negative need to stop using words like "clean" in our profiles to describe ourselves.
"Clean" implies that people who are HIV-positive are dirty.
On the Mister app and on Daddy Hunt.com, we discourage users to use the term and ask our users to report people who do.
After all, we don't tolerate racist profiles or verbal harassment.
Through drugs that can often (although not always) reduce the virus to undetectable levels, PRe P, and basic safer sex practices, it is actually remarkably easy to protect both yourself and your partner. My younger self struggled to kiss someone whom I knew to be HIV-positive.
Some leave the question of status blank or even list their status as negative.
