The Most Important Video You Will See Today

I spend a lot of time on twitter, probably way too much time. I follow a wide variety of people as well; writers, publishers, editors, cartoonists, and porn models. Wolf Hudson is one of the porn models I follow. I enjoy his tweets because not only does he keep it real, but some make me laugh.

And then there’s tweets like he’s been posting over the past day or so, where he gets tested for STD’s. Rather than explain it, I’ll ask you to watch it. I asked Wolf for permission to link to it, and he was gracious enough to say yes.

As you can see the video speaks for itself. I wanted to put this up for a number of reasons; 1) it’s a well done little video with an important message to it, but most importantly is number 2. I’m 44, and remember very well exactly the sheer terror gay men had when AIDS was first discussed. Whether it was referred to as GRID, HTLV III, HIV Positive, it meant the same thing a death sentence. Throughout the mid to late ’80s and into the early ’90s  I went to well over 200 funerals for friends and acquaintances who succumbed to AIDS. There was probably an even greater number who contracted other STD’s not to mention Hepatitis C.  Over the past few years I’ve seen a return to unsafe sex practices,  partners not wanting to use condoms, let alone get tested.

It both saddens and angers me. I hate like hell to think that all those men, women and children who died from HIV died needlessly. That no one has learned the lesson of practicing unsafe sex and don’t think about getting tested for anything.

Please, don’t be a statistic, and take Wolf’s video to heart. You can thank him by getting tested and playing safe.

    Thanks for posting this. One of the saddest things I see are people believing that straight sex is automatically safe sex.

    Also, please tell Wolf I think he’s a real cutie and very sweet-looking. ^_^
