Why risk it at all?

I have always wondered how someone who is HIV negative would knowingly and willingly sleep with a person who is HIV positive. Even after my own positive diagnosis, I was pretty sure I would have to start looking for a partner and dreading that conversation of telling a relative stranger my status. I shared my thoughts with Mr. K and he did not seem to understand why I needed to find a new sex partner. What about him? But you are negative, why would you take the risk? His answer? You are worth it. I still don’t understand how one risks so much but at least I am still getting some!
