IS BEING A BOTTOM SAFE?
Since ejaculate (cum) is where HIV is, reducing contact with ejaculate (cum) makes sense. Pulling out prior to ejaculation makes the chance of contacting cum less likely. This is about the best you can do. The addition of a good quality, water based lube will of course mean less risk of breakage to the condom. Always be sure to check the expiration date on the condom. Don't use any that have worn or torn wrappers. The extreme heat or cold can affect the quality of the latex - so don't store them in the car, sun, or your pockets for long periods of time.
