Is This a Power Bottom Gay Pride Sex Kit?

Starter Kit

A very similar pic to the one above was posted within a social media group I subscribe to. My first reaction was YUCK, is this a power bottom gay pride sex kit? Then I thought, “You know what? These rolling condoms over bananas demonstrations and sex-ed videos are obviously not lowering the spread of HIV and other STIs among homo/bi men of color. If there is a better or non-traditional way of education and pushing safe or safer sex…what’s wrong with that?”

Now putting my internal biases and prudeness in check, I know my initial “yuck” response was due to my sensitivity to homosexual and gay stereotypes in media.

The gentleman who took the source material pic and posted it on social media; is projecting a level of maturity, responsibility, precaution and safety that men who have sex with men should live by. These tools are essential. Fuck this holier than thou mindset and admit that either we all do OR should have these tools in our collective tool boxes.

Regardless of sexual position, shouldn’t we all have some (primarily condoms) of these instruments in our night stands, medicine cabinets or under our sinks? I mean we’re talking about our sexual and mental health as men. It’s real in these streets and under these sheets.

What do you think?

    I think everyone, regardless of positioning, should have these staples in their house or travel kit. If you are a full time bottom you probably would do well to have a in shower, anal irrigation system and/or probably a higher quality enema.

    Just saying.

    Truvada is optional but I can count on one hand the people who I know who take it.

    I love Dove. I tweeted Dove for Men once about my love of their products and they sent me a really awesome care packet for being a fan!

    If you are a bottoming regularly, you should have the condom and the truvada IMO. That is the number one way of getting HIV. Actually there is nothing there that is irresponsible. If they had included party drugs, alcohol, sex enhancement drugs, etc. there could be an argument against it. This is actually just being well prepared. Especially the original pic. It is very matter-of-fact. Be clean, safe, and prepared.

    I'd like to think that we've come far enough that this should be "common sense" but after doing a little volunteering and seeing where a lot of peoples' heads are…well, you know what they say about common sense. Condoms aren't a problem in terms of supply, it's use. Most of the other things pictured in the kit graphic are also pretty affordable. The one thing that is sorely needed is Truvada, but at such an exorbitant cost (compared to the other items), sadly it'll be awhile before that becomes "kit standard." I love that line "It’s real in these streets and under these sheets." I could see that on the side of said kit bags, handed out at pride events. Just takes a little interfacing with corporate outreach departments. Speaking of covering dikks, I just got home and see Megan Kelly interviewing Trump….lol

    LOL nope but even though I am a virgin in every possible way I do know a lil bit about sex. Talking to people from here online and offline, interacting with the black/Latino gay community in SoFlo and last but not least getting an A on a HIV research poster I did in my anesthesia program lol.

    Hell I went back to school for nursing and graduated(no license though yet) and this is just basic stuff really. Any gay(and especially one who went through some kind of medical program like you did) should know this. Sadly many don't.

    Clean, lubricate, protect. That sums it up basically. (and ask questions)

    Why must Gay Pride be synonymous with sex and hook ups???

      The participants who partake in sex, orgies and hookups during gay pride may be best to answer that question.
