Norway To Provide Free Hiv-Preventing Prep Drugs To At-Risk Gay Men

3 posts in this topic

Norway is sending a bold message to the world by becoming the first country to make HIV-preventing PrEP drugs available through its National Health Service.


 


Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) drug Truvada can reduce the risk of being infected with HIV by up to 86% if taken daily, and has been endorsed by the World Health Organisation and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for at-risk men who have sex with men (MSM).


 


It is already available in a number of countries including the United States, Canada, South Africa and France.


 


Norway has this week become the second country in Europe to make PrEP available, announcing that PrEP drugs will be available free of charge to at-risk groups via its National Health Scheme.


 


According to HIV Norway, Minister for Health and Social Care Bent Høie announced the move, making Norway the first country in the world to make the drug free for users.


 


The decision by the minister is taken on recommendations from the Health Directorate and the Institute of Public Health.


 










It is a result of two years of lobbying by HIV Norway – the national organisation for people living with HIV.


 


Leif-Ove Hansen, the president of HIV Norway, said: “PrEP will contribute to reducing the rate of new infections in the gay community, as gay men are facing a risk of infection much higher than the general population.


 


“Condom use is on the decline, and we are happy that PrEP now is an integrated part of the public health service.”


 


The news has been met with applause from HIV charities in the UK, where NHS England has been fighting a legal battle over the responsibility to commission the drugs.


 


Ian Green, Chief Executive of Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “Norway’s decision to provide PrEP is another great step forward for HIV prevention in Europe. PrEP is a game changer and, when used alongside condoms, regular testing and effective treatment, it can help end the HIV epidemic for good.


 


“The announcement is a reminder that here in the UK we are still waiting for PrEP to be available on the NHS to those at risk of HIV. Every day NHS England delays access, 17 people are diagnosed – and the lifetime cost to the NHS for each diagnosis is £360,000.


 


“NHS England must stop with their delays and confusion, and make PrEP immediately available to those at risk of HIV here at home.”

Must add that the Minister of Health & Social Care in Norway is gay.

 

Last year Norway ruled that gay people can get married in church in Norway, not only in court houses.

I'm sure that did't have anything to do with it....

 

Frankly, Norway has so much money that I guess for them it was not a difficult choice. Cash strapped systems like NHS and the like are a lot more reticent because of the bottom line.

      This is a fictional story based on a few real life things.  It'd dedicated to PartyandBreed -- I wrote this just for him.
      *****************************************************************
      I always fucked or got fucked bareback and when BBRT came along it facilitated that itch in a mostly easy manor.  At first I only hooked up with men who listed their status as negative because, years before PREP, I didn’t want to become infected, but being a dedicated barebacker, and having a filthy mind, led me to consider HIV+ top men when I was horny.  Even so, I still was not quite ready to take that step.  I started using the breeding.zone website a bit later.  I was mostly lurking, reading stories, adding the occasional comment until I decided I wanted to add something to the 'Bug Chasing' fiction section.
      I wrote “Cody’s Return” (which evolved into “Cody’s Bareback Adventures”) and the flood of years of depravity in my mind rushed out, including plenty of things I have never done and will likely never do.  I was horny and the culmination of every porn scene, every dirty story, and every sex club I’d ever been to all culminated into characters and a story of things I get off on (mostly bug chasing, incest, piss).  Suddenly my profile got a lot more attention and my inbox grew.  I continued the stories later writing “Kevin Is HIV+” (a still ongoing story on this site).
      I heard from guys who loved what I wrote, some with suggestions, and others just loving the spank material.  More than one of them I wanted poz cock from, if they were ever local.  By the time I began writing these stories any fear of being HIV+ or taking cum from HIV+ men was gone and I was full on bug chasing and writing about things I actively wanted to do.
      A hot member named PandB messaged me and said he wants me and him to act out some of the fuck scenes from my stories.  He said he’s not on meds and that he’d love to be the guy that infects me.  With all of those stories, and several filthy messages, we agreed it’s what we both wanted to do.  I wanted him to infect me, converting me into a HIV-positive bottom, and he wanted to do it … we’d tell each other this over and over several times over the course of a few months while planning for him to visit.
      He doesn’t live that far from me, but my life has been busy so we finally agreed to meet on a weekend after things calmed down when it’s convenient for both of us.  He drove to my house and I let him in, we hugged, we looked at each other and things got very quiet for a moment.  A smile crossed his face, a smile crossed my face and in that moment we both knew I’d have his cum inside me before we did anything else.
      I showed him around the house, and when we got to my bedroom he unceremoniously pushed me on the bed in a show of confidence, leaned down over me giving me a deep kiss, then, when the kiss was broken, he asked "Why aren’t you naked?”  I pushed off my shoes and stripped off my clothing.  Although he gave me another quick kiss, I'd estimate he had shed his clothing - his glasses, shirt shoes, socks, trousers, in three second flat, the entire time staring at me.  Young guys are so fun and eager.  At this point my cock was raging.  We had talked at length about what we both wanted and needed.  There was really no reason to talk anymore; he was here and we were going to fuck.  That was it.  
      He looked into my night stand but it was empty.  “Lube?” he asked.
      “Bathroom, top drawer.”
      He grabs the Gun Oil and by this time I was naked, on all fours on the bed.  “Get on your back,” he instructed as he lubed cock.
      'Fuck yeah', I thought.  I had thought he might want it doggie, but my favorite way to be fucked is on my back, legs up, especially if the guy fucking me is poz as I love seeing the face of a poz guy as he enjoys my hole.  No sooner was I in position than I felt PandB's hands working some of the lube into my hole.
      He climbed onto the bed, looking at me, and pushing my legs back so they rested on his shoulders.  Then he looked down at my ass, lining up his cock, I could feel his cock head slide around, and when his head penetrated my hole, and involuntary "Ahhhhhhh, go slow, aahhhh,” escaped my lips.
      PandB leaned forward, a smirk on his lips as his cock slowly sunk into my tight neg ass.  “Ohhhh…. Ahhhhh … feels good,” he remarked.  I couldn't take my eyes off his.  “Yessss," he hissed in pleasure.
      This continued until his nuts were resting on my ass.  “That’s all of it, dude.  Now you've got an eight inch poz cock in your ass.”
      "An unmedicated poz cock,” I added, giving his cock a squeeze and a playful look.
      "Yup.  Unmedicated,” and giving a push to emphasize the words, “Poz cock.”
      His cock lodged inside my ass, we made out.  While I really, really wanted him to fuck me, and I was definitely ready as I was horned-up and absolutely wanted it, but but I also love being kissed.  He held himself a bit more erect, my legs anchored on his shoulders, and rode my tight hole.  I don’t get fucked enough and I imagine the friction on his cock told him as much.  We stared directly into each other’s eyes.  We had talked for months about what it will be like when we hooked up, what it would be like when he fucked me bareback, and how much he got off on the thought of infecting neg bottoms – especially when the bottom begs for it.
      I finally blurted out, “Fuck me man … I want your poz load inside me,” somehow sensing that he'd understand how desperate I was to have his poz cum inside my body
      He doesn’t say a word he just looks at me with a grin that says, “yeah fucker … you’re gonna take as much poz cum as I give you, I want you poz”.  His eyes close a moment as he slowly fucks me and a moan escapes his lips, “Yes …. Fuck yes…. Been waiting for this”, “Me too man”.  He fucks me like that for a good 10 minutes, not a lot of talking just the sounds of his cock and balls using my ass, but we know what we both want him to do and that mental connection is enough to keep thinks hot and heavy.  When he leaves and drives back home I know we both want the HIV in his cum to have made its way into my bloodstream so that the next time I test I will get a positive result.  Just thinking that he wants this as much as I do really makes me hard.
      Finally I feel I need to state that I want that first load, and I start talking filthy, “Fuck yea dude … you’re gonna fucking infect my neg ass, gonna give it to me, fuck me the way you did that guy told me about … convert me like you did him”, “Yes, yes … ohhhhhhhhhh fuck yes”.  I just keep egging him on and on using my ass muscles to squeeze his cock on the outstroke while saying nasty things I know will make him need to cum.  His face is sweating against my hairy leg and we’re both working him towards an orgasm that’s been several months in the making.
      My cock is leaking tons of precum now but I rarely cum during sex and being a bottom I want all of the attention focused on his cock and anything that makes him nut.  “I want it PandB … I want your poz virus in me, … fucking infect me”, “Yeah … yeah”, he doesn’t say much.  He’s sweating, the room is warm, and I know he’s focused entirely on using my ass as a receptacle for that unmedicated poz load.
      I’m pretty sure we’re going to do this 10 more times over the course of the weekend, but right now I just need his cum inside me so I can carry around his bug while we watch tv, kiss, cuddle and goof off.  Also, the longer his load is in me, the more likely it’ll be absorbed into my body, and I’ll end up HIV-positive.  “I want this dude … I want to be poz like you … I want to be poz”, that sets him off, “Hot fucker!!  I’m gonna breed that neg ass … Gonna fuck it, breed it, and when I’m gone I guarantee you, you WILL be infected with HIV”.  Then I hear the orgasm coming, “Uhhhhhhh… ohhhhhh god,…. Oh fuck, I’m close … I’m close”, I use that to squeeze down on his cock harder, “You want this”, “Fuck yeah I do”, “You want it … you wa…. UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OH FUCK !!!!  OH FUCK !!!!!”, and his first load of poz cum is squirting into my ass.  “Fuck!  Give me that poz … “, but he cuts me off, “FUCK FUCK….. OH FUCK I’m cummmming so hard babe”.
      The rest of weekend went much the same, I took 12 more loads from him (gotta love youth).
      I messaged him on the 9th day after that weekend; I had the flu.  I felt shitty but he had no sympathy for me.  He told me it was fucking hot and exciting that we’d had sex and now I was sick.  He said I was a bottom who barebacked and I deserved this for letting him cum inside me.  I knew he was right, but I also knew I wouldn’t get hard over it until I got to feeling better.

      I am currently on Prep (Truvada).  I am hopefully getting accepted to a research study for hiv prevention vaccine. So I am going to stop Prep and become a true POZ cum chasing slut. If you are interested in helping truly test this vaccine contact me.

      Has anyone had experience with the generic forms of PrEP ? It odes seem to be easier cheaper and at least for me, easier to obtain.

      I drove downtown to a few bars. I honestly still felt like shit, since I got the fuck flu only a few days before. But my viral load was off the charts, I knew it tends to shoot up right after you get the bug than decline for a while so I had to use this opportunity. I knew a good club nearby, and it was lady’s nights. Few things are more enjoyable than getting free drinks, sex, and giving the gift to some horny idiots.

      I dressed in a very short, tight, green dress. When I got in you could see at least half the guys turn their heads to watch me go by. I found an empty spot by the bar, a space big enough for at least two. The bait was set.

      Within 30 seconds of me getting to the bar, a bro approached me. He was super buff, clean shaved and appeared to have recently been shat out of a nearby frat house. That was fine though, I could like a cocky frat boy, and I bet he’d act significantly less cocky if he started carrying around my little friend.

      The Frat boy approached and said “Did you get that dress on sale?”

      He was apparently trying to neg me. Like when you insult a girl on purpose, so she feels shitty, then wants to sleep with you to help her self-esteem. In this case I guess he was trying to wreck my self-esteem. I don’t say anything, I let the silence take hold until he tries again.

      Eventually he says “It makes sense. Cause your face isn’t that great, so you need to wear shorter dresses to make up for it. You don’t seem to have a good personality either. I can see why you need the help.”

      This dude actually has the audacity to say I need help to get guys? There’s a figurative line of guys waiting for him to strike out so they could come try their luck. If it were any other day I’d have let them try, but in this case this was exactly who I was looking for. An idiot, a douchebag, this creep deserved what he was getting. I decided to throw him a bone.

      “You… You think I’m ugly?”

      Now he thinks he hurt my self-esteem, he thinks he’s in. He tries to go for the score. “Oh I didn’t mean it that harshly, I think you have a lot of natural gifts, it’s just you don’t know how to use them. If ya want to like get out of here, I can help you kind of… ya know… learn a little bit about yourself.”

      “Uh… Okay…” I said, very coyly. Trying to play the part of hurt girl. “Where do you want to go?”

      “Here I’ll show you, let’s head outside.”

      Once outside the club, he tells me to wait by the corner while he gets his car. Right after he leaves, another guy comes up to me. I had seen this guy with Dave before he came up to me. The new guy says “Hey listen, Dave said he wouldn’t try to pick up girls anyway, he knew it was a bad idea but he did anyway. I’m his friend but I can’t let him do this. There’s something you should know… Dave has Herpes. He’s actually got an outbreak right now, so there’s a huge chance if you let him touch you, you’ll get it too.”

      I was ecstatic. Even with a high viral load like my own, it can be hard for girls to poz guys. Like guys can do it easily, cause they can just cut you with nails or something. But for girls, it’s harder to find a way to let the virus get into their blood stream, and that’s the only sure way to poz someone. This new information cut that pathway down significantly, cause those sores are an easy pathway for HIV into his body. I tried not to giggle as the new guy was waiting for me to process this information. I could see Dave’s car approaching. I turned from the new guy and entered Dave’s car, without giving him so much as a good bye.

      After tonight, I knew I would probably also have the herp, but I can’t see how that’s an issue honestly. It’ll just improve my viral repertoire, adding to the size of the gift I’m giving guys.

      A few minutes later we got to a cheap, dingy motel. This was getting too good now. Other than being a douchebaggy idiot, he also has a girlfriend or wife or something. That’s the only reason he’d bring me here.

      He led me into one of the rooms and immediately started trying to lift up my dress. “Hold on a second, you’ll get what you want.” I said. He refused, grabbing me he threw me onto the bed. “Wait, stop” I said, rather reflexively. “I want to leave.” He didn’t answer, he jumped on me, started kissing me. He tore my dress at the shoulders, pulling it off me. I tried to shove him off me, but slapped my hands to the side. Grabbing my throat with one hand, he reached around and unclasped my bra, letting my large D sized boobs flop out. He pushed his own pants down, then his underwear. I saw his penis for the first time, and it looked like a clear sore on his tip. I pretended not to notice though, at this point I needed to give this guy what he deserved.

      “You want this dick now?”

      “Please no…” I mumbled, He slapped me.

      “Bitch wrong answer. Tell me you want this fuckin dick.” I started to say no, and he slapped me again, harder. Dave tore off the rest of my dress, so I only had my panties. I tried to grab my panties, so he wouldn’t pull them down, but he grabbed my hands and held them above my head with one hand. With his other hand, he reached down and pulled down my panties. I started squirming, trying feebly to get away. Slapping me again, he said “Shut up bitch”. Dave moved his legs between my own, I tried to keep them closed but he forced them open with his legs. Finally, staring at my pussy, Dave realize what I’d been trying to keep hidden; I was fucking horny. My pussy was dripping wet.

      “Well well… Looks like someone’s been enjoying this eh?”

      I was enjoying it. But not for reasons Dave realized. It was because this was about to be my first conversion.

      With one of his hands holding my own above my head, Dave on top of me, and his dick positions directly in front of my penis, I knew it was about to happen. Dave put his free hand on my throat and started squeezing so I couldn’t breathe. He plunged his penis into me. I could feel something pop as his penis reached the bottom of my Vagina. He started thrusting rapidly, moaning. I could hear the sloshing as his penis went in and out of my HIV filled vagina. His grip on my throat got harder, I could feel my face getting red from lack of oxygen, but god it felt so good. I felt his knob expand, his head tilted back, a few last thrusts and he explodes, launching his semen into my vagina. He releases my throat rolls off me.

      I move to get off the bed, but he stops me. “Whoa, where are you going? Don’t think you’re getting off that easily.”

      Dave grabs me, throws me back onto the bed. Then he reaches into his jacket pocket and pulls out some handcuffs. I lunge at the door, trying to escape, but he catches me. Grabbing my hands, he handcuffs them to the bed frame.

      “Just so you know…” he says, “I have herpes, and you almost certainly do too now.”

      I laughed a little in my head, he didn’t have any idea what was about to hit him.

      After handcuffing me to the bed, he rapes me five more times that night. Taking turns between my Vagina and my ass. By the morning my pussy juices had been thoroughly mixed with blood. I watched as he came in me, and then pulled out for the last time, at maybe 8 AM. His dick clearly a little bloody, I didn’t know if that was my blood or his own, but regardless I was pleased with my work. He finally uncuffs me and leaves. As I was leaving, I realized that he had totally ripped my dress apart, and my car was back at the club. I’d have to make it across town in only my underwear and bra.

      Even still… I have no regrets. Honestly the sex was great most of the time. I’d be happy to put myself into the position to be raped again, especially because of the gift. Give it to a rapist and you’re also giving it to everyone he rapes… This really is the best of every world.
