I believe one should have a safety regimen that includes regular testing (whether you think you need or not) and exercising good judgment about partners, including that you trust them to exercise good judgment about partners.
I teamed up with another partner who was having a lot of negative reaction to the idea of testing and safety and wrote a letter to the fun, hot people I'd like to have sex/play with
. I think it addresses your concerns about networks of partners.
