Some guys just don't want to think about condoms and lube. If you choose to not use condoms and water based lube to reduce your risk of HIV infection, you can still take some precautions:

• Use lots of lube to avoid anal tearing;
• if you’re HIV negative, avoid being the bottom, which is riskier;
• if your partner is positive make sure he's on ARV treatment;
• pull out before coming; and
• get on a course of PEP if you've had risky sex in the last 72 hours.
