I was certain I contracted HIV when I was 15 years old.
The year was 1995; I had recently accepted the fact that I was gay and was ready to explore my sexuality.
A friend of mine, who was around the same age as me, came over one evening to sleep over. Our plan was to watch movies, hang out, and cause typical teenage mischief.
Somehow, we got into a little more "mischief" than we had planned, and ended up having oral sex. It was the first time I had ever experienced anything like that, and it was thrilling and nerve-wracking all at the same time.
