I've read loads of posts on punters refusing to see girls who offer bareback due to the perceived risk of possible HIV infection. Now I don't know the prevalence of HIV in pro$$ies so can't comment on the risk involved but know it isn't one I'm willing to take.
What I was wondering is your opinion of other practices in which participation leads to a greater risk of HIV infection.
Intravenous drug use is the obvious example. Reading around the subject it seems that some studies (admittedly a few years old) suggest the rate of HIV in BB vs non-BB are similar until IV drug abuse is introduced at which point the HIV prevalence explodes.
Following on from that, street workers are often seen (and, in my opinion, rightly so) as a lower caste of prostitute. IV drug abuse is probably rife and, as such, their HIV risk is through the roof.
Moving to prostitution overseas, I read that HIV prevalence in hookers in Thailand is 20%. Staggeringly high if accurate and probably greater than the prevalence of HIV in BB pro$$ies here.
So, would those of you who avoid girls who BB here avoid these (or other) groups too for the same reasons?
Personally i am not just worried about HIV, there are a multitude of STIs some like forms of Herpes, Hepititis and Chylamidia that can cause permanent health problems, all for a punt, no way jose as the risk to reward ratio isnt worth it to me.
As to these groups, i may well punt with some WGs who take illegal drugs but havent seen tract marks in recent times but have in the past on ocassion which were a turn-off. I guess weed, speed and cocaine are more prevalent, but i dont smoke weed anymore and have never taken anything else and dont want to see evidence of needles, tin foil, volvic bottles or little clear plastic bags etc while punting as the problem is those on drugs are not on the same planet as me which isnt conducive to a good punt in my experience.
I have no interest in the street scene, a very risky form of punting in my view from all angles, the police, being robbed or the WGs being on drugs and/or having something. It being cheap is its only upside but too many downsides for my liking.
Never punted abroad so have zero experience of it.
