X In Canada, it’s a crime not to disclose HIV or another STI before having sex that poses a “significant risk of serious bodily harm.” However, most prosecutions have been strictly related to HIV and hardly any have been related to herpes, syphilis, chlamydia or other STIs.
Just like any relationship that grows organically, some private matters like revealing your STI, are not discussed until trust is gained.
Of course, you need to disclose before there is any sexual contact.“The idea behind that is that nobody actually puts everything out there on the table when they start dating.
The reason behind this approach, explained Pierce, is that you have a lower chance of getting your feelings hurt.“It’s not as big of a rejection and it doesn’t compromise my feelings because at that point it’s brand new.
At least 184 people have faced charges related to HIV non-disclosure after sex in Canada, one of the highest rates of HIV criminalization in the world, Elliott added.Besides the legal obligations laid out by the Canadian criminal code, some experts believe it’s important to be transparent about your STI in the name of public health.“You want to be upfront, you want to tell the person, and you also want to reassure them that you will be performing safe and intimate contact,” Jason Tetro, a Canadian microbiologist, told Global News.Tetro, who used to work in HIV research and policy, says STIs are becoming more and more resistant to antibiotics, which means they’ll be even more of a headache to treat — so, why not be open from the beginning, before any sexual contact?That’s kind of the whole dating process, it’s learning about somebody as you go,” Pierce said.“Nobody says ‘I have horrible debt and my dad is an alcoholic and my brother is in prison’…[it’s a] myriad of things that might be a deal breaker for somebody.”It really depends on who you are, there is no right or wrong way to do it, she added.
