Getting barebacking recognized as a legitimate option in sexual relations will not happen as an issue by itself. Despite the studies that have appeared showing at least half of all gay men bareback just doesn’t capture the attention of those who live in that state of denial where safe sex is hot sex .
Most of them do not exist but one does — sort of. That’s Truvada . It’s a cocktail antiviral that’s been shown effective as an anti-HIV prophylactic — meaning that men in “high risk categories” take the drug and it essentially prevents the body from contracting HIV.
But tests also show that taking Truvada in the week following possible exposure to HIV also prevents contracting the virus permanently.
It’s like Plan B for gays.
I think we should call it Plan T, for two reasons:
1. “T” for Truvada (or its generic name, Tenofovir)
2. And the whole idea is to protect all the “T” cells.
If we, as a barebacking community, needed a rally cry, I think we might have found it. It’s captured some attention on Twitter. Even Paul Morris of Treasure Island Media agrees with this.
Fighting Doctors and Pharmaceutical Companies
Paul is right that doctors would fight it, but I think the greater fight would come from the drug companies. Just think of this: Have you heard of many cures of lately? Is there a cure for cancer? A cure for anything?
I have this fungus on my chest, right between my pecs. I’ve now had it for more than 10 years. Seems like I should be able to get rid of it. But every six months or so, it flares back up. It’s just this red, splotchy thing that comes out of no where and thrives due to — of all things — water. I put the designated medicine on it and it goes away. And for months after it disappears, I keep applying it. But it lies dormant until I stop applying the medicine then it comes back out of its hiding.
I believe that this is the ultimate plan of the drug companies. They are not out to create cures. They’re out to create treatments.
Gilead Sciences, who make Truvada, must be shown that it would benefit from a lot more men taking the short-term Plan T than waiting for men to go onto the long-term HIV-Positive treatment with Truvada or one of the other cocktail options. Once Gilead crunches those numbers and sees the cost analysis benefit,I think they’ll start pushing for over-the-counter dispensing of Plan T as an option.
But if the cost analysis doesn’t go Plan T’s way, Gilead will oppose it.
Worth a Shot
I still think it’s worth a shot. It’s time barebacking had an issue that wasn’t just about sexual freedom. And this one may be it.
