Now on your restaurant bill: Obamacare fee

I’m fine with this. If it means said place is complying with the ACA instead of trying to get around it by kicking their employees on to the exchanges via cutting hours to part-time, great. Here’s two dimes.

Twenty cents for a bill of over $20. So that employees get health insurance. This is a fucking ADVERTISEMENT for Obamacare.

^^^

No lie. 

You’re willing to pay 2.50 for an iced tea and 6.50 for a hot dog and yet you bitch about .20 going to give employees health coverage? Get outta my face.

^^^^priorities

Fucking THIS. Human decency. It’s a thing.

Best 5 seconds ever

Getting tested for herpes taught me something really important - what a deductible is.  

They should really comp the tests when it comes out positive.

If dudes are expected to have a lot of sex

But ladies are expected to stay virgins until marriage

But homosexuality is bad

I’m really confused who dudes are supposed to be having all that sex with

Guys I got it

Society is literally telling dudes to go fuck themselves

I’m sorry I can’t not reblog this

I was discussing my gen-HSV2 with one of my partners yesterday and we both had been thinking about latex shorts with a hole in the crotch to prevent the skin contact. Today I found that these do exist on twistmyrubberarm(. com) though they are a bit expensive. I plan on talking to my doctor soon about how helpful this might be. I notice they aren't on your "safe sex tool kit" page (yet). What are your thoughts?

So I checked out the site and this is one of the shorts that anon is talking about:

The good thing with shorts like this is that you can’t transmit HSV because there is literally no skin contact. The bad thing is that…there is literally no skin contact. It doesn’t seem very practical either. What if you just start making out, things get heavy and then you have to wait for them to put on really tight latex shorts? Mood breaker!

I don’t think it’s necessary, it might have adverse effects emotionally (I know I’d feel pretty shitty if I thought my boyfriend had to go to this length just to have sex with me) and I’m not planning on adding it to the toolkit.

Having said that, this is really interesting, thanks so much for sharing! If it works for you, the sensitivity isn’t an issue and you have the $75+ to spend, go for it and let us know the verdict. :)

Seems like an interesting option.  Even though it might be an emotionally/physically shitty option to you, it could be helpful to someone (which I think anon thought was the point of your toolkit page).  So I’m going to reblog it.

A more practical option (the “hole in the crotch” part of anon’s message), would be this one instead (link: NSFW). 

For some people, they can love their partner to pieces but still be really really wary about getting Herpes.  For example, I’m in an open relationship, as is one of my partners.  We can’t have intercourse because if he got it, he might give it to one of his partners.  If this ends up being a legitimate way of protection, it would be one of the most helpful things that I’ve come across so far.   And hey, maybe someone is really into leather/PVC and they have Herpes.  It would work for both of those.

You’re right, but if you’re going to use the one you linked, why not save the $75+ and just keep the boxers on the whole time, or use briefs with the crotch slit?

"And hey, maybe someone is really into leather/PVC and they have Herpes.  It would work for both of those.” I love that. 

def not gonna cut it for summer fucking tho. 

^^^I actually kinda hope there is some kinky latex-loving Herpster out there who rocks the fuck out of these pants. It would just be so perfect.

Even then, I’m gonna second the notion of, if you’re that afraid of having sex with me, then let’s just not. I’ll hold out for someone who isn’t terrified of touching my body with their own.

Not everything works or is acceptable for every person.

I’m terrified of having sex without a condom for fear of getting pregnant. Does that automatically mean I’m saying I hate my boyfriend because his body produces sperm?

No, of course not.

I don’t equate fear with hatred. I’ve certainly experienced fear of coming into contact with my partners’ sperm, because I don’t want to contract a baby, but I certainly didn’t hate the men who produced those frightening sperm.

Probably your point was more along the lines of, hey, if a barrier method makes people happier and more comfortable, and they’re able to enjoy each other’s bodies more when they use them, then that’s a good thing. I’d agree with that, absolutely. I definitely see the parallel between condom = protection against unwanted sperm transmission, and kinky latex pants = protection against wanted virus transmission. If either partner’s condition for sex is, ok, but this penised partner puts a condom on or I’m not ok with this, then that condition needs to be honored or the sex doesn’t happen.

The difference is that we as a society don’t generally shame sperm-producing people for producing said sperm, or for ejaculating it. Being an HSV+ person with the potential to expose others to it often comes with HELLA JUDGEMENT. The fear of spreading it to one’s partner can be understandably stressful, and I’m not out to criticize people for practicing sex in the ways that make them feel safe. My concern is for people who have HSV who, out of a sense of shame, feel like they need to completely cover up every inch of their body in order to be deemed fuckable — or who have partners who make them feel that way.

Feel me?

I get what you’re sayin’.  I guess my comparison was actually a bit dumb outside of the moment.  

Probably your point was more along the lines of, hey, if a barrier method makes people happier and more comfortable, and they’re able to enjoy each other’s bodies more when they use them, then that’s a good thing. I’d agree with that, absolutely.”  

This is exactly what I’m trying to say.  I definitely wouldn’t want anyone to feel like they needto cover up when they have Herpes in order to be attractive.  That idea is ridiculous, and I’ve been there.  I just want people to be aware that there are ways to cover up to a level that they do feel comfortable with.  Whether it’s with just condoms, or a full-body latex suit. Everyone has comfort levels.  

That’s not to say that I’d break up with my boyfriend if he was suddenly uncomfortable with my Herpes, though.  Right now I’m trying to find a way to make my open/poly relationships work with my having HSV, and I just felt like this seems to be a very viable option. While my boyfriend is very relaxed about it, I don’t expect every person that I become active with to be that way.  I hope anon will tell us when he/she is able to ask a medical professional about it, and if not, I may bring it up at my next dr appointment.

Thanks for trying to understand what I’m saying instead of shooting me down.  I really appreciate it.  I’ve now gotten two anon hates saying how I’m trying to shame people into covering up.  Which is really 110% not my point at all.  Information and possible solutions are not the same as trying to mandate what people should or shouldn’t wear.

Naw, I was more upset that I came across as possibly shaming people for *wanting* this option. Someone did suggest it to begin with, after all. And I’m all for giving people the benefit of the doubt. Makes for a more interesting and productive discussion, right?

Thinking about new/multiple partners from a poly perspective, I think it would probably come in handy to have something like this around — you have multiple people’s comfort levels to contend with, so you have to kinda roll with what works for each person. (I’ve actually always kinda wondered how you introduce herpes conversations into poly relationships. I’ve read about poly people who just flat-out don’t bring in people with STIs, and I wondered if HSV+ people often feel shut out of poly situations.)

I’m in a monogamous relationship, so my perspective was, “Gee, if my One Partner required me to wear this any time we got it on, I would really hate that and we wouldn’t last too long.” As much as I support respecting your partner’s boundaries, if respecting Person A’s boundary means Person B’s needs cannot be met, then ultimately that’s not going to be a healthy sexual relationship, and it’s not going to work out long term. (I was thinking about a Herpblr writer whose boyfriend a year or so ago didn’t think he could ever go down on her, and it followed that if he never budged on that, staying with him meant that she would never receive oral again.)

To the Anon who originally brought all this up: Seriously, I’m really curious about what the outcome of this is. Please report back it you try it!
