DEATH BY SEX: 62% of HIV-positive American Men Admit they Have UNPROTECTED Sex

More than half of American men with HIV have admitted to having unprotected anal sex with a male partner in the last year.

According to a report by The Centres for Disease Control (CDC) released last week, 62 per cent of those who self-reported being HIV-positive said they had done so.

The report, HIV Testing and Risk Behaviors Among Gay, Bisexual and Other Men who have Sex with Men (MSM), said this group represents the majority of people diagnosed with HIV.
