In Ontario, contact your local AIDS service organization to obtain copies of Pozitively Healthy: a gay man's guide to sex and health in Ontario.
This guide, developed and written by gay men living with HIV, is a frank and fresh look at the issues and questions surrounding sexual health for positive gay men. The guide leads you through the main points of sexual health, from why you deserve a healthy sex life, through safer sex to handling "no" while remaining positive. Basic information is combined with practical tips so that you can make decisions about sex that are right for you, and it all comes from the perspective of HIV-positive gay men who have been in your situation. Whether you're looking for information on how viral load impacts the risk of passing on HIV or tips on talking to your partner about your HIV status, this guide can help.
Pozitively Healthy is currently under review and redevelopment. Look for the latest edition when the Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance of Ontario launches “The Sex You Want” October 2016.
