J. Merridew, Vlogger, Releases 'Wear A F*cking Condom!' Video

Posted: Updated:

When vlogger J. Merridew learned that HIV rates are on the rise among gay men, he felt compelled to address to issue using his YouTube account.

"I had no clue that HIV/AIDS has been on the rise in the gay community for the past few years," he states in the video's description. "I thought it was decreasing over time. This is our community! Let's get our act together!"

While Merridew's message is fairly simple, it's one that all sexually active people should consider -- "Wear a f***ing condom!" -- particularly considering that only one in three New Yorkers reportedly uses condoms during sexual activity.

The vlogger also goes through the variety of excuses gay men use as reason to not wear a condom during sex and debunks them one by one.
