I had a weird conversation with someone tonight who told me that he found out that a guy he was seeing is positive and apparently has been for about two years. He said he found a lump on the guy's neck one day when they were "petting". The guy later told him that he went to the doctor and that's when he found out his status. So the guy I was talking to said he went to get tested and was ok. The doctor at the clinic preached a bit and told him that "while the vagina is somewhat immune to HIV transmission the anus is not. That even in a long term monogamous relationship there is the possibility that the virus develops". I called bullshit. I said that any two guys in a long term 100% monogamous relationship had almost zero chance of contracting HIV. He said the doctor told him that the mucous membrane in the anus is volatile and the virus could develop. It sounds like spontaneous combustion! Of course I was told that the doctor knows better than I do for obvious reasons - he's a doctor and I'm not! So, is it possible or was my bullshit call on target?
