I have a very hard time with folks who do not reveal their HIV-positive status to any potential sex partner, whether it be male/male, female/female or male/female sex. I always self-disclose with any man who I may decide to have a sexual encounter with, PERIOD! It's a matter of conscience for me as I couldn't live with myself even just thinking I may have exposed someone to this disease. It's worked quite well for me over the last twenty-three years of knowing I am positive and I see no reason to change that now! I guess some people have a lower degree of self-respect or personal honesty than me, but I am going to continue self-disclosing with any fellow who piques my sexual interest. It's just that important to me and my partners.
