Knowing your status never looked so sexy and bootylicious

Getting Atlanta’s gay men to know their status never came as easily as in the new sex-positive HIV video titled “Knowing.” Its creators apparently knew that a way to our hearts is bare-naked booty, relationship drama via text, gay office sex and a Rihanna cover.

Those are the ingredients in L.A.-based Impulse Group’s new PSA encouraging gay men to get tested. The video (above) takes one man’s journey from a naked bathroom break-up and knowing his HIV status to talking openly about it and sex at work. You know, just like your life. Or the one in your head anyway.

The guy who plays main character Parker in the video is actor-model-beefcake Kyle Heinen. Sexy gay singer-songwriter Eli Lieb provides the backing track, his smooth-groove cover of Rihanna’s “Stay.”

Now sink back into the tub and get to “Knowing.” It’ll provide the perfect motivation to stay aware of your status when a gay Atlanta-based porn star and his prick aren’t available. That’s a good thing, since more than half of Atlanta gay men don’t know their status, and our tribe accounts for two-thirds of new local infections.
