Bob Leahy with the infamous 2003 video about the phenomenon of deliberate HIV Infection aka bug-chasing. Is bug-chasing, or gift-giving real, imaginary or too small a phenomenon to take notice of?

The Gift

I had heard about the documentary The Gift but never seen it until recently. So it was interesting to stumble upon it on YouTube and see what all the fuss was about. It’s available to view below: if you have an hour or so, it’s worth watching if only as an introduction to the topic, which some would argue has received far more attention than it deserves. I would tend to agree with them. Like many others, I’m more than sceptical whether bug-chasing/gift giving is a phenomenon of any size

Our anonymous contributor, a poz gay man exploring the bareback hook-up scene while foregoing disclosure, ends his three part account of what he has seen and also learned about himself

My late summer of nondisclosure: part three

These condomless sexual encounters continued. What I had originally planned and what I actually got were two different things  All my encounters resembled sex of the late 70’s before the AIDS epidemic. I know that gay porn was always condomless then and that people were barebacking, but I never expected reality today to completely mimic that era in such a complete and consistent manner.  For a short time, I was able  to go with the flow, so to speak, given the fact that sex was back in

My late summer of non-disclosure - Part Two

Our anonymous poz gay guy is trying out sex without disclosure – and finds that everywhere he goes barebacking is the norm. How should he handle this?

My late summer of non-disclosure - Part Two

Read part one of this story here.  So the plan had been devised, I had figured out a way to fly under the radar of the laws of nondisclosure. With my healthy appearance, good shape, and the assumed lack of inquisition of a gay man who would not want to waste time trying to get into pants, I figured this was a no fail plan. This plan consisted of keeping it light and not delving into details about my past. If someone asked about the details of my sexual history, I would give the edited versi

Guest Jake Sobo: "This column is the product of tracking the sex that I've been having for the past ten months. , , "This is a project about my sex life. What turns me on. What gets me off. "

Promiscuous gay nerd: what makes sex good?

This article by Jake Sobo originally on the San Francisco AIDS Foundation website also appeared on TheBody.com here. Last year during a visit to San Francisco over New Year's, I witnessed something truly remarkable. My friend gathered a handful of gays together, poured some freshly brewed tea, and gave an hour-long PowerPoint presentation about the sex he had during the previous 12 months. I've seen a lot when it comes to sex. But I'd never before witnessed such a public display of sexual re

Bareback Britain - doing it raw

In this in depth article the UK’s FS magazine says “Bareback sex is now happening more and more with gay men in Britain, let’s find out why...”

Bareback Britain - doing it raw

This article written by Stuart Haggas was originally published online on FS here. FS is a publication of GMFA (The Gay Men’s Health Charity) in the UK.  Republished with permission.  Bareback Britain may sound like a low-budget gay porn movie (indeed a quick online search reveals that it is a DVD from 2007, with the tagline “bum me bareback and I’ll drink your spunk, mate!”), but in reality there is a risk of it becoming a slogan for gay men. Most gay men on the scene today have l

Am I responsible for my friends' HIV Infection, addiction and death?

Thoughts on meth, prevention, responsibility, and the passing of Glee star Cory Monteith from Aaron Laxton on TheBody.com

Am I responsible for my friends' HIV Infection, addiction and death?

This article originally appeared on The Body.com here. Do we have an obligation to intervene when our friends are engaging in behaviors that are dangerous and potentially deadly? Some of my closest friends and peers are shooting, snorting and sleeping their way to potential HIV infection and eventually death. Am I responsible through inaction for their ultimate demise? We have all seen the commercials that teach us to stop a person who has been drinking from getting behind the wheel of a veh

HIV can happen to anybody - not only those in a chem-fuelled orgy

Tom Latte says there are many ways to become infected with HIV and they do not always encompass drugs or sex parties. He is an example. But ultimately, it does not make a difference how one was infected.

I went to the clinic recently for my quarterly HIV check-up. Business as usual. As part of a study, I had to fill in a lifestyle questionnaire. It read as follows:  Question 1. In the past three months, have you used any drugs or illicit substances? Yes: Continue to question 2. No: Thank you, you have completed this questionnaire. I ticked No and was done. Needless to say, this was the shortest questionnaire I have answered in my life! It fitted very well with something I have found gr

The popular view of barebackers: bug chasers?

published: October, 01, 2013 Written by // Guest Authors - Revolving Door Categories // Gay Men, Health, Sexual Health, Revolving Door, Living with HIV, Guest Authors, Opinion Pieces, Population Specific , Sex and Sexuality

Guest Josh Landale is a proud gay man who isn’t afraid of telling people he likes barebacking. But when the UK’s Sunday Mirror got hold of his story, the proverbial s*** hit the fan

The popular view of barebackers: bug chasers?

My views on bareback sex are well documented and publically available. I make no bones about the fact that I enjoy bareback, and am a devout advocate of it, provided that all concerned are making educated decisions about the risks they are taking. However, thus far my views have been confined to the relatively small world of the online bareback community, or other online media forms associated with it. So it took me by surprise when, back in June 2013 I was approached on Twitter by a journa

Porn: the good four letter word

“Bareback pornography is hot” says the controiversial Josh Kruger in this original piece for PositiveLite.com

Bareback pornography is hot. As gay men, we must get that very necessary affirmation out of the way before we start dissecting the actual issues surrounding condoms or a lack thereof in porn.  In fact, if we keep droning on and on about how the appearance makes no difference, and basically lying to ourselves and others, we're going to continue to reinforce the problems currently inherent in the institutions of modern HIV prevention. After all, if condoms were, in fact, so desirable, we woul

PIG

Bob Leahy reviews the raw, disturbing but ultimately rewarding new drama PIG, a play about the men who inhabit the outer limits of pig sex, at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto

PIG

Photograph by Jeremy Mimnagh Definition of pig play (from the Urban Dictionary) “This term is commonly used in the gay male community to describe the act of having dirty sex. A man engaging in pig play may perform acts of watersports, urine colonics, defecation, tag-team sex, bareback, breeding, fisting, and cum swapping.” If this description of pig sex sets of alarm bells and pushes against one’s comfort level about learning more, be warned that PIG, the new play from acclaimed Engli
