Harry Styles

BlissBoo said...

I didn't know that there's medication to prevent HIV. I obviously know that there's medication (and lots of it, a friend of mine is HIV+ and I've seen all the meds he has to take) to slow/stop? it down.

okkk

Bloggybutt said...

Harry? Good for him. This is very smart.

This and That said...

good on you Harry for taking care of yourself.

Droopy Orchid said...

Is this medication called a condom?

filmfanb said...

@blissboo Prep is available now that stop your from contracting HIV. It doesnt stop you from getting other STD's though

longtimereader said...

Well if you went 'yachting' with David Geffen, smart move.

This and That said...

There’s something out now that I keep seeing the commercial for. Truvada

@BlissBoo, Here you go, what the doctor ordered for folks who love getting their backdoor barebacked by randoms.

I'm not sure if it's crazy or if it should be put in the water supply like fluoride 🤔

MZ said...

Now that Harry kind of alluded that he was bi....this site can't really write those blinds anymore...I guess this is their new way of making sure they get to keep Harry in the blinds....sigh!

roque said...

I mean, good for him! Being safe and responsible for not only yourself, but others, is nothing to be ashamed of at all.

BlissBoo said...

Thanks for the info everyone, I appreciate it. I'll look it up. I think that's great news! I lived through the 80's and the havoc it caused. I wish we had it then. :(

BlissBoo said...

Thanks everyone for the info, I'll definitely read up on it. This is great news! I lived thru the 80's and the havoc it caused. I wish we had it back then. :(

Rosie riveter said...

Thank goodness he has it available. He's looking a bit rough tho

BlissBoo said...

Sorry for the double post. Blogger gave me an error message on the first post.

notthisagain said...

this shouldn’t be a blind. But good for him - I assume he is taking PreP

Condoms don’t work with bedazzled bungholes. Unless you’re using copious amounts of KY. Because.... unlike the vagina, the bungholes doesn’t naturally lubricate itself. Because form follows function. There’s no functional purpose to stemming the Rose.

PReP Google it!

MissDavie said...

LGBTQ Community health professionals are really encouraging the young guys who are HIV negative to take a daily dose of PrEP. I fear in about 10-20 years we are going to see thousands of gay men with all kinds of side effects. Excuse me for not trusting the Big Pharma companies with the health of gay men. It would not surprise me if the stuff was not a placebo.

Pissoff said...

Is this the guy who had his crusty asshole exchanged for a new one?

Boldblonde said...

Being safe also means using condoms. There’s a crazy amount of men who still don’t use them. Knowing how dangerous HIV is. ...

J said...

In London subways they have signs which say that those who are taking HIV medication can't spread the disease. This strikes me as very irresponsible.

Brayson87 said...

@J it's probably just to make British women feel better about the roaming rape gangs the police ignore, maybe they won't catch HIV.

J said...

Before now I hadn't checked, but perhaps the posters have validity

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/03/health/hiv-transmission-gay-men-zero-risk-study-intl-scli/index.html

...as for the police ignoring rape gangs, there are some fucking crazy stories coming out of the UK these days.

Flashy Vic said...

Is this to go with his new shiny barking spider? Look out boys, Harry's back!

Nonya Bidness said...

PrEP shaming is low, even for enty.

Good for the bander for being responsible.

TeeHee@U said...

Absolutely. You do have to wonder about the side effects in 20 years. If you listen to commercials half the side effects are worse than what they are preventing and they have not stood the test of time.

Be safe y'all and still use condoms. If you reck your asshole as bad as Harry, who literally has had to have surgery to repair it, you probably should not put your dick down that hole LOL.

Brayson87 said...

I keep hearing about Styles and his a$$ surgery, but haven't seen anything backing it up, anyone have any links? Seems kind of young, then again maybe he's a size queen.

I’ll leave y’all with this:

It is called "prep" and people put "on prep" in their Grindr profiles.

I tried to caution that it may not be a foolproof method and that HIV is still serious, and that not everyone who gets the virus responds in the same way to the virus or to the medications (which can be very expensive and inconvenient, for those who are used to a no frills youthful lifestyle.)

I don't remember (and don't want to) who it was but a name I hadn't noticed before tore into me including claiming I was hurting people with AIDS (when I'd just said I knew people who'd died from it.) That just about made my brain explode, reading that crap.

I don't want a rerun of it if that cretin still lurks here or has alts. So, suffice it to say - you are trusting a stranger, and Big Pharm, with your LIFE, if you bareback -- and even if there are home tests now, the virus is a retro virus which hides from detection at times.

There is. no. existing. cure.

Play with caution.

Flashy Vic said...

Why hasn't he been nicknamed Doggy Styles yet? He walks the walk and can top and yelp with the best of breeds.

Samantha the 1st said...

Universal "you" btw. On rereading my comment above, it sounds like it's addressed to the person quoted. It's addressed to any/everyone, i. e. 'to whom it may concern.'

Samantha the 1st said...

Can he top, Vic?

Do tops need bottom reconstruction surgery tho?

Samantha the 1st said...

It sounds highly irresponsible to me also, and highly suspect. Wonder how much Big Pharm paid for that? Allegedly.

"In London subways they have signs which say that those who are taking HIV medication can't spread the disease. This strikes me as very irresponsible."

Samantha the 1st said...

Brayson I notice the URL even says "reduce" risk, not obliterate risk/prevent. Interesting.

People who are young and full of surging hormones don't need much urging to be reckless, and as others have said too, it doesn't protect against other types of STD/disease. (Advertisers know this full well and capitalize on it, literally.)

So I wonder if they're paying total attention to the risk, even though it's only left 'implied.'

Samantha the 1st said...

THANK YOU MissDavie, those who remember cannot forget.

I won't even go into the rumors about how the virus originated to begin with.

"Excuse me for not trusting the Big Pharma companies with the health of gay men."

This type of stuff makes me angry. A lot of very good people should still be here.

Brayson87 said...

@Astra, Dammit, are you trying to ruin Taco Tuesday?😅

JL said...

Factoid. A small percentage of people primarily descended from Scandinavians are immune to HIV due to a genetic mutation. The main locus of the mutation was Sweden. So scientists have been studying those immnune for years now.

Gerbil S Sac said...

Christ not this bullshit from Samantha again. You ill educated loon. It's probably me you're referring to. Because you're spouting garbage mixed with hysteria mixed with conspiracy theory mixed with outright ignorance. Just because you don't understand the science of it, doesn't make its effectiveness I preventing HIV any less real.

Good on Harry, if it is him. Sensible all round.

Brayson87 said...

@JL, I wonder how they figured that one out, probably led to the Chinese making hiv resistant super babies.

Samantha the 1st said...

So was it you before?

Don't start with me again. I am not going to give you my time or go through a rerun of your abusive rants.

Samantha the 1st said...

"Gerbil Sac" - Big Pharma shill, btw, I presume. Enough said. Not that you'll stop, and I hope Enty turns moderation on so your future abuse toward me does not appear. I hope since you were ad hominem abusive above, that comment will be deleted.

Just like before, you are also (in addition to ad hom attacks) twisting what I am saying, and just saying "muh science!"; and why would anyone trust your opinion, since you are an abusive, anonymous internet troll?

I'm not going to have a medical debate in this forum with you or with anyone it's not the time or place. Barebacking is risky. That's what I am saying and that's sound advice.

Samantha the 1st said...

And since "Gerbil" popped up in here so quickly he or she is obviously a regular lurker and/or a regular poster's alt. If it's the latter, come out, as your regular nick, then.

Sd Auntie said...

good for him but still wear a condom. no warts no cancer

fuzzygalored said...

and..... why is taking a prep med even worthy of a blind item?

it's an adult taking responsibility for their own health and being considerate in a way towards potential sexual partners. no shame.

Karma said...

With as many wannabe boy band singers Simon Cowell screws, he damn well shoulda wrapped himself in plastic wrap!

Studio54 said...

Where does that leave Kendall Jenner, who dated him?????

Melissa said...

Truevada us being sued after numerous people took it and still contracted HIV. It’s like playing roulette with two numbers instead of one. The odds are still very much against you. For crying out loud, be safe and stop buying this pharmaceutical pseudoscience!

Aquagirl said...

Kendall is a lesbian. He also supposedly dated Taylor and that was another bearding situation.

Aquagirl said...

@Melissa: Not only that but Harry is 25–so is he going to take this for the rest of his life? I can’t even imagine the side effects.

Rachelxz said...

Exactly. It's disgusting to use him like this.

Gerbil S Sac said...

Ah yes the "big pharma" conspiracy. That's usually an excellent launching pad for a "medical debate" you aren't actually capable of having. Because it's all a roaring conspiracy right?

And his is my handle. Yeah I lurk because most of the blinds aren't actually blinds but lifted from DM or tedious ones about Housewives and Kpop, I.e. not worth commenting.

But your emotional hysterics over something you clearly don't understand are always a good prompt for an intervention. I notice you've tempered yourself since your last rants, now barebacking is just "risky". Good. Dial it back.

If taken properly (daily dosage) you cannot contract HIV from an infected person nor spread it if you have reduced levels to undetectable. Yes you can still get other STIs but PREP represents a key safety net for gay men in particular. We should applaud the celebrity for being responsible but instead it's posted here like it should be shamed.

orangesoda said...

Meh. Whatever. Sleep with strangers, you're an idiot, regardless of orientation. Pills or not.
