Some guys just don't want to think about condoms and lube. If you don't use condoms and water based lube, there are still other precautions you can take:
• Use lots of lube to avoid anal tearing
• Remember that the bottom is at higher risk for HIV infection
• If your partner is positive make sure he's on ARVs
• Pull out before coming
• Get on a course of PEP if you've had risky sex in the last 72 hours.
