Hiv positive sex partners chat sites
A criminal complaint against Thomas Miguel Guerra lists one alleged victim. (Tony Perry)Guerra entered the plea as trial was set to begin in San Diego County Superior Court.
According to court documents, Guerra told a man that he was HIV negative when the two had unprotected sex during a romance that lasted several months in 2013.
The process of relationship is complex as the Internet brings socio-structural factors of reducing feelings of alienation (Horvath et al., 2006), discourse and first experience (Agwu & Ellen, 2009; Bolding et al., 2007; Tikkanen & Ross, 2000) and high levels of unprotected anal intercourse (UAI) (Bauermeister, Leslie-Santana, Johns, Pingel, & Eisenberg, 2011; Horvath et al., 2006; Tikkanen & Ross, 2000; van Kesteren, Hospers, & Kok, 2007).
Ross (2005) noted that negotiation may be easier on the Internet due to the lack of embarrassing social cues and lowered impact of rejection.
Statistics on Internet dating include both success in proving to be a helpful tool for finding life partners, and challenges of misleading dating profiles (Viegas, 2010).
Behavioral research among MSM has traditionally viewed the Internet as incorporating risk factors for this population including recruiting through the Internet (Bolding, Davis, Sherr, Hart, & Elford, 2004; Daneback, Månsson, & Ross, 2007; Kok, Hospers, Harterink, & De Zwart, 2007; Konstan, Rosser, Ross, Stanton, & Weston, 2005; Tikkanen & Ross, 2003), subcultural (Elford, Bolding, & Sherr, 2002; Elford, Bolding, Davis, Sherr, & Hart, 2004; Evans, Wiggins, Mercer, Bolding, & Elford, 2007; Ross, Rosser, & Mazin, 2006) e-dating (Bolding, Davis, Hart, Sherr, & Elford, 2007; Davis, Hart, Bolding, Sherr, & Elford, 2006a; Hospers, Kok, Harterink, & de Zwart, 2005; Kaufman & Phua, 2003; Tikkanen & Ross, 2000) filtering, where e-daters choose to meet with other potential e-daters (Bolding et al., 2007; Davis et al., 2006a; Hospers et al., 2005; Kaufman & Phua, 2003) and between online (Internet) and In Real Life (IRL) sexual negotiation (Horvath, Bowen, & Williams, 2006; Ross, Rosser, & Stanton, 2004; Ross, Rosser, Mc Curdy, & Feldman, 2007).
The use of the Internet in negotiating for sex has HIV/ STD transmission implications because of the efficient, rapid way of finding partners, which raises network and epidemiological risk.
For example, where condom use is in the Internet profile so the prospective partner expects to find practitioners of condom use in the pool of possible partners (Davis et al., 2006b).Pre-empting eliminates the need for a discussion of safer sex as the information is, for example, provided in the Internet profile, a biographical sketch.
