Wrap It Up (I’ll Take It) by 51stCenturyFox
Smart billionaires were almost required to be eccentric. So Tony Stark didn’t like to be handed things and he didn’t swap intimate fluids. At least he wasn’t scrubbing the labels off of canned goods or wearing Kleenex boxes for slippers like Howard Hughes.
I’m a huge advocate of safe sex, ok? If you’re having sex with a person without a condom, especially the first time, or you haven’t been tested - or they haven’t - for HIV, you are a fucking moron, simple as that. So Tony’s view on sex in this fic is really easy for me to understand. Except maybe Tony takes it a little too literally and transforms it into an almost phobia. There’s nothing wrong with safe sex; it’s damn sexy that someone cares about their health, and yours, to use a condom during sex. It’s a little strange to keep using a condom after you’re in a committed relationship with recently updated HIV testing. It’s damn weird to be sleeping with Captain America, who can’t contract a virus to safe his life, damn him, and still insist on using a condom every time you have sex. Poor Tony, though. After being traumatized by the HIV and AIDs scare as a child, you really can’t blame him for being terrified of swapping fluids. But I think going full-naked with Cap is ok, in this instance, and you gotta hand it Steve; he handles the, er, situation beautifully. And sexily. Thank god for that; I think he managed to make Tony a true believer in the last round. ;)
