So you think you’re having safe sex right, but are you really?
As a 34-year-old gay male I thought that I pretty much knew everything about sexual health there is to know, until I went through a messy breakup with a long-term boyfriend who I found out was sleeping with another guy. We never used protection, I completely trusted him with my life and I always said that he would never do that to me. So when I found out, naturally I was crushed and it really made me think can you actually trust anyone 100%? Especially when it comes to entrusting them with your health.
