HIV Positive Homosexual Guy Allegedly Cut Tips Off Condoms to Infect His Grindr Dates
I most usually focus on hetero-sexuals or heterosexual related issues, but there’s this story (another example of why being celibate isn’t so bad, you don’t have to worry about someone deliberately trying to give you a STI):
A hairdresser deliberately infected at least four men with HIV after meeting them on gay dating app Grindr — before sending them mocking messages, a court heard.
Daryll Rowe, 26, from Edinburgh, Scotland, is accused of embarking on a “cynical campaign” to infect as many men as he could with the virus.
He texted one of his alleged victims: “Maybe you have the fever cos I came inside you and I have HIV, lol. Whoops!”
The court heard Rowe also called one of his victims and laughed over the phone as he goaded the man about his potential diagnosis.
The victim later tested positive for HIV, with a strain of the virus similar to Rowe’s.
Another man Rowe had sex with said he used a condom, but found it discarded in the sink with the end ripped off.
Caroline Carberry QC, prosecuting, told Lewes Crown Court: “He was extremely concerned and upset about this and repeatedly asked Daryll Rowe whether he was clean, which he said he was. That condom did not split accidentally.”
Another alleged victim discovered he had the virus after feeling “feverish and ill.”
Rowe was diagnosed with HIV in Edinburgh in April 2015.
