Barebacking with an undetectable partner no transmission
A and went to a bathouse and it seemed everybody was barebacking and not only did this place offer hiv testing but also viral load testing and it said to see if you have been recently re-infected again. Your friends are playing sexual Russian roulette. I'm sure they are happy to share their experiences of playing Brokeback Mountain with HIV-positive cowboys riding their rawhides so to speak without any negative consequences. However, do you really think they would tell you or anyone if their viral load shot up and suddenly they had to switch regimens?

STUDY: Undetectable Guys Do Not Transmit HIV To Negative Sex Partners / Queerty
Q: If I am on HIV medications and my viral load is undetectable meaning that the virus isn't showing up on blood tests , can I still pass the virus to another person through sex? The following three research studies have focused on this question. A large international study looked at couples largely heterosexual in which one partner was HIV positive and the other was HIV negative we call these serodifferent couples. It is important to note that the couples in this study were encouraged to use condoms. A smaller study looked at both male-female and male-male serodifferent couples who did not use condoms and did not plan to use them. After more than a year, none of the HIV-negative partners had been infected by their partner. As a reminder, if someone does have a detectable HIV viral load it is very important to use condoms.

A groundbreaking new study is quantifying transmission risk for gay men when one partner has an undetectable viral load. The landmark Partner study that everyone is talking about—which tracked HIV transmission risk through condomless sex if the HIV-positive partner is on suppressive antiretroviral medication—has so far found not even one case of an HIV-positive person with an undetectable viral load transmitting the virus to a partner. But people in your everyday life may still be a little disbelieving.
However, the statistical certainty of this result was not quite as convincing in the case of gay men, or for anal sex, as it was for vaginal sex. It means that when a person living with HIV is on regular treatment that lowers the amount of virus in their body to undetectable levels, there is zero risk of passing on HIV to their partners. The low level of virus is described as an undetectable viral load.
