Policies, policies, policies. I have to say, I found myself rather torn regarding this one. My initial gut reaction at first was, "Finally. Someone's taking some responsibility for this mess. A huge organization with great power is finally setting a great example and taking a stand for the safety, health, and well being of our community!"But are they really?As an RN with training in public health, I have a tendency to look at statistics. When I look at them, there are some very interesting trends to notice, thanks to the CDC. Let's get my own personal feelings out of the way. I don't bareback. Hell, I rarely have anal sex when I play in the first place. There's a reason for that – I want to stay safe and I don't want to get myself infected. Do I think everyone is infected? No. But I don't want to take the risk. The anal isn't what makes or breaks a scene for me anyway. I think there are plenty of ways to get off and feel good without taking up the butt. And if I wanted something there, there are toys for that which feel about 10,000 times better than a dick ever would to me.
