Doxy PEP: Prevents STIs
Suck off your regular sweetie, or get after that hot anonymous cock — without fear. Doxy PEP is here to make sure you can suck, fuck, get pounded raw AND prevent STIs.
Doxy PEP is for gay, bi, or hetero cis guys, plus trans, non-binary, and TGNCI+ folx* who want to protect themselves from gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis.
At this time, it’s under study with cis women. We will let you know when we know more about how well this works for cis women.
By taking two pills (100 mg each) of the antibiotic doxycycline (“Doxy”) within 24 to 72 hours of fucking or sucking as the top, bottom, or both, you can stop the spread of STIs. One dose of Doxy PEP will cover all the sex you’ll have in a day — so make Doxy PEP your last load of the night. Don’t take more than two pills (one dose) in a 24 hour period.
It’s a generic medication that costs less than $20/bottle. Check GoodRx for coupons that can lower the cost of your prescription.

Doxy PEP is a relatively new prevention strategy. Drug resistance with Doxy PEP is currently being studied further, and is certainly a consideration for the public and health organizations as use of this strategy increases. Doxy PEP is an individual decision and folks will need to weigh the benefits (STI prevention) with possible risks (including medication side effects) as with any medical decision.
