With the nation’s attention drawn to PrEP and how NHS England must now reconsider its stance on offering the anti-HIV medication to those most at risk of infection, Buzzfeed LGBT editor Patrick Strudwick has highlighted some of the hypocrisy and some of the “arguments” made about the differences between gay sex and straight sex – or as we like to call it around these places … sex.

In a tweet entitled simply: “When gay men have sex” – he outlined a number of differences between gay and straight sex.

He wrote:

When gay men have sex without a condom it’s called “bareback sex”

When straight people have sex without a condom it’s called “sex”.

When gay men have sex it’s called a “lifestyle choice”

When straight people have sex it’s called “sex”.

When gay men take a pill to prevent HIV it’s called a “lifestyle choice”.

When straight people take a pill to prevent pregnancy it’s called a “responsible”.

Earlier this month the editor slammed the Daily Mail for its coverage of the historic and landmark ruling that NHS England must offer the anti-HIV “lifestyle” drug to those most at risk of infection.
