Once upon a time, I had a butt. But that was before HIV meds—especially Zerit—melted it away three years ago. I didn’t have the 10-grand-plus to correct this fat wasting, so I found a kick-ass backup: underwear with butt pads, which I ordered from www.buttforyou.com at about $37 a pair. My butt looks great, to match the great job my surgeon did on my face with Bio-Alcamid. I’m back to my old self again—albeit with a few clever disguises. And I have something to sit on while waiting and hoping that med switches will someday restore the fullness of our rear ends.
