Then given that statement its worth asking, why don't you bareback prossies?
I can bet the reason you will come back with will either be that of an acceptance of the risk is too great. Or an attempt at a getout of along the lines of well I don't want my partner finding out or something.
The fact is deep down you know how dangerous, vile and nasty it is. Rock Climbing is not vile and nasty. So if you do happen to slip and break your leg or arm from those risks that you've ignored. You can say it with pride.
How did you do that
Ah I fell as the rope was not hooked on strong enough when doing rock climbing.
But if you slipped up from barebacking a prossie and got an STD you cannot boast similarly about that. You would be holding your head in shame and embarrassment. Therefore I class BB much more riskier than Rock Climbing.
I think a lot of people (probably the majority) would consider punting to be 'vile and nasty'. That is only your personal opinion of bareback sex.
Barebacking itself is not 'vile and nasty'. As foresight says, it is very enjoyable and is the 'intended way' to have sex. I have bareback sex with my girlfriend every time.
Yes, society views an STD in a more negative light than a climbing injury, but, when you get down to the nitty gritty, there isn't a lot of difference. Both involve getting an injury from a 'risky' behaviour. For the most part STDs are either easily treatable and/or manageable for the longterm. HIV is no longer a death sentence. Try recovering from a broken back sustained whilst climbing however. And those who depend on you suffer, I could turn my girlfriend into a lifelong carer over the course of an afternoon climbing.
You're right (I think), the reason I don't bareback is because when I weighed up the benefits vs risks to me, personally, I decided not to. The increased pleasure of bareback does not justify the risks. To others it does.
As I say, if you are somebody who is totally risk averse and never takes a chance and castigates all others for taking unnecessary risks then fair enough, you can berate barebackers without being hypocritical. If not, then you can't.
Right I'm off to work, am a little late so will probably have to take a risk and speed....
