    That was a very interesting clip, both scientifically accurate and completely understandable by laypeople. The study bears closer scrutiny and wider research, for sure.

    Anything that could help stem the pandemic's spread is good, obviously. But I wonder if the fact that the focus was exclusively on infection through vaginal sex was a condition of the study's grant funding, a squeamishness on the part of the University's administrators to mention anal sex or because the gel's too limited to be effective in the blood-rich environment of the anus.

    Lube in general helps prevent the spread of HIV. As long as the lube itself is not an HIV-carrying fluid (cum, blood, vaginal fluid, breast milk, cerebrospinal fluid - and WTF is going on if you're using cerebrospinal fluid for lube, anyway?) generous amounts of lube helps prevent tears from opening where HIV could enter the body. It's not a replacement for condoms and communication, but it's indespensible none the less.
