The risks of Bareback swinging

The risks of Bareback swinging

If you think that having bareback sex increases the risks of infection then you are correct. However, medical researchers have long studied swingers groups in Europe and the USA where bareback sex between swingers is more common that protected sex, and found that they have a lower incidence of infections that the public at large.

The reasons are many, but to list a couple:

in general people who swing are more responsible than those that just have casual sexual encounters in bars or clubs, and if they do find they have caught something they let the people they play with know very fast.

due to the casual way people meet in bars and nightclubs, an infected person will often have no way of letting the person they had sex with know that they are infected, and the infection reaches an ever wider circle.

very few people in the swinging scene indulge in drug use, they get their pleasures the natural way. All drug use reduces the effectiveness of the bodies natural immune system and reduces the ability of the body to fight of infections.

Due to alarmist reporting in the press, you would expect that everyone who has bareback sex in the swinging scene would be suffering from HIV/AIDS by now, but the opposite is true. There have only been 2 recorded deaths from HIV/AIDS in the swinging scene, and both of these were bi-sexual men who had indulged in anal sex with each other and others outside the swinging scene.

Extensive testing of people with HIV/AIDS and their partners has found that there is a lower risk of a healthy person catching HIV/AIDS from their partner through unprotected vaginal or oral sex, than there is of contracting cancer from the use of condoms. The high risk groups are the same as always, men who have anal sex with an infected partner, or people with suppressed immune systems.

Dangers from the most common spermicide Nonoxynol-9 are not brought to the attention of the public, as it would send a mixed message, but medical research has shown that this very widely used product is very dangerous that causes cancers. click here for report.

In our view the dangers of bareback sex are about the same as for protected sex, we all get ourselves tested regularly and as we have said before, as a group with a combined swinging record of over 50 years, the worst we have ever suffered is thrush which is not an STD.
