AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS – 11-30-2018 (PRDistribution.com) — Gay dating app ROMEO held a worldwide survey among its members about safer sex. ROMEO was interested in getting an idea of sexual behavior and opinions about condoms, PrEP use, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The response was impressive with a total of 69,551 respondents.

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT SAFER SEX
The ROMEO survey showed that an amazing 88% of gay, bi males or trans members feel that they are (well)-informed about safer sex and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

PrEP USE AND AVAILABILITY
According to the ROMEO survey, only 16% of participants said that they use PrEP and 67% said that PrEP should be covered by national health agencies and/or other health insurance. Among PrEP users, 91% indicated that they also are willing to use condoms.

“The introduction of PrEP in 2012, a medication that prevents HIV infection, has been a game changer in the gay dating world. At the same time, there is a big discussion about its benefits and risks. With this survey we want to help to find answers,” says Jens Schmidt Founder of ROMEO.

MAJOR CONCERN
Comments from participants indicate that the rise in the spread of STIs is a major concern.

THE RESULTS
Based on the survey results, ROMEO believes that PrEP will have a positive impact, especially for those who do not consistently use a condom. View the complete survey results at the ROMEO website.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
