****** Preference: BB or Safe *** filter
Most gays these days seem to only want BB or breeding, for the handful of us who like safe **, this should be a filter available. If people opt for BB **, a recommendation should pop up to ensure they are HIV tested and on Prep/PEP. It is incredibly useful and provides education
I really prefer using condoms and it’s been hard to find guys who do too, particularly because Prep is so widespread (and I’m on it too). Anyways, I slipped up a couple of times and had unprotected sex because I’d made plans with people, then found out at the last minute that they “wanted my kids in them”. Which hey, not gonna shame anyone, it’s a turn on, but it’s something I’m willingly trying to deprive myself of due to fun new strains of gonorrhea and emergent STIs (HIV is only like 50 years old guys, it can happen again). Anyhoo I might’ve been exposed to chlamydia. We’ll see about the test results, but I’d really like to be able to advertise that I only want to use condoms from now on. Not worth the risk, and I think Grindr is inadvertently promoting unprotected sex and STI outbreaks by not bringing back this option. Am I wrong, but didn’t you used have it in the earlier 2010s?
Absolutely! More guys pref BB lately and I only play safe. I’d like to know who is and isn’t safe so I don’t waste my time!
I have a genuine problem using condoms. Whittle street agreed with me on this. I have had 2 Sri’s in a year for gonorrhoea and was told that even if I’d used a condom it would not have protected me against the sti because it’s really contagious. It’s not my gonorrhoea it’s something that piggybacked onto me. I have tests every 3 month and keep on my phone the results to show people if they ask To demand that we do tell and post results online is degrading. Medical records are private that’s that. Maybe it could be a voluntary thing designed to reassure people who sleep with me not a thing to make me wear a condom because I can’t wear one
