Can a gel to prevent HIV be applied as a lube?

Rectal microbicide gels, applied either daily or before and after sex, are currently being investigated as an option for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Given that many people who have anal lready use lube, one hope is for an HIV-prevention product that people could essentially use in place of a lube.

How to Have Sex in a New Epidemic of STIs

I feel a need to raise an alarm regarding this spike in STI rates. Something is wrong when MSM account for 83% of reported cases of syphilis among men. But we can't blame this on PrEP.
