Alarmed at the rise of high-risk behavior among HIV+ young gay men, a collaboration of NY Public Health professionals and New York University has produced an innovative web-based campaign telling the story of a young gay man in New York City who meets sex partners on the Internet. In this new approach to HIV/AIDS awareness, we ask the question whether a web-based serial can affect the behavior of the men who watch it.

How widespread is the phenomenon?... and is the rate of new infections zero for sex partners who're part of the phenomenon?... the phenomenon of the strategy of "Let's get tested TOGETHER BEFORE we have sex, for A VARIETY of STDs." Sexual health checkups reduce ambiguity/risks and can be like anything else POTENTIAL sex partners do together.
