Hey — new moms are busy! They don't have time to write more than six paragraphs about a movie, or mention anything about the cast or director. Cut her some slack!

@79: People who are "handy with a lawnmower" are legion. If someone pretty is being solicited out of the blue to mow a lawn, it may be less about their skill and more about the other party's interest in watching them do it. That doesn't make it quasi-sexwork along the lines of nude housecleaning — but it still may be, to some degree, why they ask.

Then again, porn actors are in a unique circumstance. If bareback porn were to become the norm, the industry could take steps to assure that every performer is either on PrEP or undetectable. That's a lower level of risk than it would be in the general population, where even if one casual partner is on PrEP, the other may have a high viral load.

Make that "preventing HIV transmission"
Sep 15 Fred Casely commented on Savage Love.
...and the emergence of drugs regimens (PrEP) that provide more protection against HIV infection than condoms
I don't question the essential truth of this, and I'm not sure there many non-porn-stars who would face an either/or choice.

But I think this is the first time I've heard an expert seem to say that if your goal is preventing HIV and you can use only one method, you're better off with PrEP alone than with condoms alone.

Does LW's invitation include a plus-one? If so, how diverse and devilishly good-humored are his friends?

@14: Sheboygan also belongs on the Real-or-Imagined-Krusty-the-Clown-Punch-Line Cities list, along with Hackensack, Hoboken and Schenectady. Sandusky was dropped from the list in 2009 after it (through no fault of its own) stopped being funny.
