Moonlight and I don't use any kind of protection. We've weighed the risks and decided we're fine. Fly and Punk are ok with this. Punk and I always use protection. With Fly, it's very simple: if he chooses to exchange fluids with someone else, his responsibility is to tell me this before he and I exchange fluids again, with the knowledge that I will probably decide to use protection with him if that happens. He's welcome to do as he likes, and I am welcome to do what I like to protect myself and Moonlight as a result.
For me, fluid bonding is a big deal, because you're not only trusting your partner, but all their partners and all their partners. It's a huge leap in intimacy, to put your health and well being into someone else's hands.
