SILVA, Luís Augusto Vasconcelos da; DUARTE, Filipe Mateus  e  LIMA, Mônica. “The chemistry between us just became weird”: Affective-sexual relationships of young men living with HIV/AIDS and with undetectable viral load. Sex., Salud Soc. (Rio J.) [online]. 2020, n.34, pp.25-45.  Epub 18-Maio-2020. ISSN 1984-6487.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1984-6487.sess.2020.34.03.a.

In this article, we discuss narratives on affective-sexual relationships of young men living with HIV/AIDS, with undetectable viral load and possibility of not transmit-ting HIV. We conducted ten semi-structured interviews with men who have sex with men, aged between 18 and 30 years old, followed at a specialized health service in Salvador, Ba-hia, Brazil, in 2017. In these narratives, the undetectable condition appears as an impor-tant [bio]identity change, and its maintenance as an ongoing responsibility to themselves and others. Despite biomedical advances, the ‘undetectable equals Untransmittable’ (U=U) campaign and new interactive possibilities open up in this scenario, the stigma of HIV as well as a notion of dangerous/risky bodies persist, supported by discourses of fear and guilt for a possible virus transmission.

Palavras-chave : HIV/AIDS; undetectable viral load; men who have sex with men; sexuality; prac-tices of care.
