You Should Be On PrEPPrEP is one of the best kept secrets of modern medicine because no one wants to talk about the sexual promiscuity that creates the need.
Traditional values say that you should have one sexual partner, presumably that partner is also your significant other.
Society has come up with several colorful names for people who have more than one sexual partner. For example, you might be a "cheater" if you have one affair outside of the relationship with your significant other. Maybe you "sleep around" when you have more than one sexual partner outside of your relationship.
Then you have the whores, which can be a slur or maybe the person is really getting paid. The slut has many sexual partners.
What do you call someone who has 50 or more sexual partners in a single year? Your doctor might say you have a sex addiction and recommend sexual compulsion therapy. After all, 50 or more partners in a year seems excessive.
But what do you call someone who's sexual encounters with other has far surpassed 50 in a year, say more than 200 sexual encounters in a single year? How about 500? Or even 600?
First of all, if someone is having that much sex with other people, they must be doing a lot of things right. It takes physical stamina, health, and eating right. You might not find them in the gym because that amount of sex is probably their daily exercise.
Matt Redding (Alpha Pup Kabous) calls these super sexually active people "Responsible Sluts." Some people are intimidated by the experience of these responsible sluts, but there's no need to be. In fact, these responsible sluts probably know a lot more about STIs (and the symptoms of the associated STDs) than your family doctor. They freely talk about how they stay healthy for sex, how they prepare themselves, and they have amazing stories to share. They make great teachers for anyone with less experience.
Kabous created a social media and created a social media awareness campaign to end the stigma of sleeping around. That campaign focuses on taking PrEP every day and uses the hashtags #ShowYourPill and #ResponsibleSlut.
There's no excuse to not be on PrEP today. It's readily available in every country and there's plenty of government funding to get you on PrEP without your regular insurance ever knowing about it.
