AUGUST 26--An HIV-positive Air Force sergeant failed to disclose his medical condition before engaging in sexual activity with a multitude of partners he met at swinger parties and through adult web sites, according to a military investigation, The Smoking Gun has learned.
The criminal probe of Sgt. David Gutierrez, a 20-year military veteran, began last month when the Air Force Office of Special Investigations received information that he had engaged in numerous, unprotected sexual acts over the course of three years. According to court records, investigators charge that, due to Gutierrezs HIV status, these encounters amounted to aggravated assault against several men and women in and around the Wichita, Kansas area.
The 43-year-old Gutierrez, stationed at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, was apprehended on August 9 for violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice. At the time, a search of his person and vehicle was conducted pursuant to a search authority granted by a military magistrate, records show. Two subsequent searches--conducted at the Wichita home Gutierrez shares with his wife Gina--targeted his computers and other belongings in a bid to identify potential witnesses and victims.
Gutierrezs wife told investigators that he became infected with HIV in 2007 while stationed in Italy. After learning of the diagnosis, she claimed, Gutierrez contacted his sexual partners in Italy to report possible exposure to the virus, according to an affidavit sworn by Air Force criminal investigator Derrell Freeman (that document is excerpted here).
However, after being reassigned to McConnell in 2008, Gutierrez began having unprotected sex with numerous partners, Gina Gutierrez told Air Force investigators. She said that her husband used adult networking web sites to arrange sexual encounters with both male and female partners, and bragged to her about his numerous sexual exploits in the Wichita area and commented he never informed the other parties of being HIV positive. Online profiles indicate that Gutierrezs wife has participated with him in swinging activity, both in Kansas and Italy.
Gutierrez, pictured at left, did not respond to an interview request sent to his Facebook page, and a cell phone number listed for him in the Freeman affidavit is no longer in service.
In his affidavit, Freeman disclosed having interviewed two women who reported having unprotected sex with Gutierrez after meeting him through adult web sites. Both women--whose names TSG has redacted from an excerpt of Freemans affidavit--told the Air Force investigator that Gutierrez never disclosed his HIV status. The names of both women appear among Gutierrezs list of Facebook friends.
One woman told of first meeting Gutierrez in person last summer at a swinger party (she first connected with him through adultfriendfinder.com). The alleged victim, a 44-year-old Kansas woman with two sons in the military, said she performed oral sex on Gutierrez at that initial gathering, as well as at subsequent swinger parties over the following months. She added that he took photos and videos every time these sexual encounters took place.
The second woman, 44, told Freeman that she initially met Gutierrez in late-2009 via clubforeplay.com. During the Thanksgiving holiday she engaged in unprotected oral sex and vaginal intercourse with Gutierrez at his Wichita home. At no time did D. Gutierrez disclose his positive HIV status to the woman, Freeman reported.
In a late-October posting on adultfriendfinder.com, Gutierrez wrote that, We are looking at hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for all (singles man/woman, cpls) that do not have family here in Wichita. He added, Any playing is not expected, but more than welcome.
According to Freemans affidavit, Gutierrezs online handles include luv4u269me3 and wetnwild4u2692. Additionally, Air Force computer crime analysts determined that Gutierrez was active on multiple adult web sites used to facilitate meetings between like-minded, swinging couples and singles, and was actively seeking sexual partners in the Wichita, KS area At no time did [he] identify himself as being HIV positive. In one online profile, Freeman added, Gutierrez reported attending 21 Wichita-area swinger events during the first six months of 2010.
Gutierrezs online profiles include explicit photographs (as seen above) and details about his sexual exploits and preferences (Honesty is a key factor when looking for a sexual partner, he claimed in a profile on eroticsouls.com).
In a June 2007 posting on adultfriendfinder.com, Gutierrez conducted a poll on whether respondents were willing to play with partners infected with herpes simplex virus (HSV) or HIV. In a follow-up post, he asked, Why are people scared of the HIV virus, dont you wear condoms to protect yourself from HSV? He added, The research I have done raises several questions on weather or not HIV is even related to AIDs.
Records show that investigators searching Gutierrezs home seized his pornography collection, condoms, and a wide variety of vibrators and sex toys. They also took a blood chemistry report addressed to Gutierrez from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, and two manila envelopes containing a total of 146 pages of HIV related research articles.

Interesting trivia point, "Swinging" was invented by the US Air Force.
According to Terry Gould's Book The Lifestyle: A Look at the Erotic Rites of Swingers, swinging began among Air Force pilots and their wives during World War II. The mortality rate of pilots was high. Gould reports that a close bond arose between pilots, with the implication that husbands would care for all the wives as their own, emotionally and sexually, if the husbands were away or lost (thus bearing some similarity to levirate marriage).
This is debatable, however, since it would have been unusual for wives to accompany their husbands on foreign tours. Other sources point to U.S. Air Force test pilots in the California desert as the original participants.
Though the beginnings are not agreed upon, it is assumed American swinging began among American military communities in the 1950s. By the time the Korean War ended, swinging had spread from the military to the suburbs. The media dubbed the phenomenon wife-swapping.
Keep it in your pants or do the burning pee dance.
‘swinging’ has been happening far far longer than the Air Force.
Soddam and Gomorrah ring a bell?
Yeah, I can still remember the 1st Sergeant’s parting words at the last company formation every friday: “... And wear a rubber!”
>>> Soddam and Gomorrah ring a bell?
No but Quasimodo does.
Emperor Zero’s grandfathers ?
Heh, that’s something they didn’t show in “The Right Stuff.”
Hmm, a common cold virus spreads itself by making you sneeze. Do you suppose HIV has a different behavior modification to spread itself?
btw...that guy is just God's gift to women....NOT!...if you're going to "swing" ladies at least do it with a hunk.....geesh...
I call BS!
Why, everybody knows it was the colonial Brits in East Africa who invented it for the twentieth-century. “White Mischief”.
They also invented the “key party”. Where everybody drops their keys in a fishbowl and the ladies pull out the keys and go home with the gentleman whose keys they are.
Hell to the no !
Not even with a Jason Patrick mask on.
Hard to feel sorry for these ‘victims’. If they wanted to live that lifestyle, they got a taste of the results.
I’m just glad he doesn’t (appear to) have a “kiddie problem”.
I’m boringly normal too. Although, having had access to a former coworker’s ‘swinging site’ (just out of a burning curiosity) and knowing some others, I will say that the majority of people who participate in swinging are just average in appearance. Graying, balding, sagging, with bumps and scars and cellulite. None of them were what I would term ‘very attractive’.
That’s what I was thinking. No sympathy here. You have sex, all kinds, with lots of different strangers who are having all kinds of sex with other strangers, unprotected and you’re surprised that some of them have diseases? Yeesh. Stupid is as stupid does.
Anyone want to bet he caught HIV from another homosexual?
Or a dirty needle. The two base behaviors are typically intertwined.
I would guarantee that. Remember the outbreak of AIDS exploded in the gay community, namely the bath houses of San Fransisco, but from my limited understanding of the disease it is far easier to catch HIV from having anal sex, as opposed to normal intercourse.
I am not going into the gory details but basically it involves semen entering the blood stream right away.
Having sex with strangers is suicidal!!!
This should wake up a lot of the RINOs who were supporting repeal of DADT. Not only would allowing open homosexuality undermine unit cohesion, but the additional healthcare costs (AIDS, hepatitis, syphilis, etc) are going to be astronomical.

Interesting. There are some hints of this among some ancient warrior cultures of the steppes. Danger, mutual loyalty and the need to keep up the population numbers applied there as well.
