    I was interested in reading this story because it belongs to The Real Story Safe Sex Project, which essentially aims to educate young adults about safe sex without making it seem like a school lesson, and I wondered how successful it would be in doing that I also wanted to see what the author, Jeff Erno, was like as some of his longer works seem interesting.From the point of view of the narrative, I liked the gradual development of the boys relationship in the story as well as the protagonist I was interested in reading this story because it belongs to The Real Story Safe Sex Project, which essentially aims to educate young adults about safe sex without making it seem like a school lesson, and I wondered how successful it would be in doing that I also wanted to see what the author, Jeff Erno, was like as some of his longer works seem interesting.From the point of view of the narrative, I liked the gradual development of the boys relationship in the story as well as the protagonist s introspection about his sexual orientation and his attractions The portrayal of his competing hopes and doubts seemed realistic to me In terms of its message, the story does get the point across about the value of safe sex However, it doesn t do this in entirely a value free way Firstly, view spoiler Jeremy is presented as being in some way dishonest because he hadn t told Travis until three months into their relationship that he already had sex with another guy Given that Jeremy and Travis hadn t had any sex other than simultaneous mutual masturbation , Jeremy s decision not to disclose his prior sexual experience until the prospect of anal intercourse with Travis arose seems reasonable to me In fact, he acted responsibly in informing Travis only once it became clear that sex with him was likely why not keep this personal information private until then Jeremy s second revelation that the guy he had had sex with turned out to be HIV positive was, of course, critical information to give Travis because of the risk he had been infected and so could infect Travis too This was the real reason why Jeremy brought the subject up and I think he acted commendably given the possibility that Travis could ve rejected him for being potentially HIV positive hide spoiler There is a second view spoiler moral message about Jeremy s prior sexual experience On foot of the possibility that he might ve been infected, he decides to get tested at a clinic This too is commendable However, while Travis is supportive of Jeremy and accompanies him there, I thought that he could ve chosen to be tested too since, for all Jeremy knew, he might also have had sex with somebody else It would ve removed any doubt that Travis was himself carrying a sexually transmitted disease and it would have been an act of solidarity with his boyfriend Instead, we get the message that Jeremy has to get tested to prove he is not infected but Jeremy has to prove nothing because, apparently, he is still a virgin hide spoiler My only other criticism would be that the text is a little rigid because of its intended audience In other words, the anatomical and sexual terminology used is medical rather than informal except in one case where Jeremy uses a term to describe his former relationship with Marcus , which is rather strange when you consider that the story is told in the first person by fifteen year old almost 16 Travis Overall, it s not a bad story and it has a good message to impart even if it could have been less judgemental in tone.Review posted 28 March 2014 slightly edited 30 March 2014

    The intention was good, but the execution was pretty poor.Cheesy content, weird dialogues It was kind of lame, to be honest And the MC sounded like he was 10 instead of 15 lol

    I thought this short story was lovely I really enjoyed the relationship between the boys which was very sweet and heart warming The HIV storyline felt a little rushed, but I guess that s just because I would have liked the whole story to have been longer andin depth Great read

    Rating 3.0 5.0A short story about a teenager who has a crush on his teacher and later on another boy The story discusses several subjects lightly like coming of age, coming out and safe sex It was OK.
