To Fuck Or Be Fucked… That Is The Question: Myths About Anal Sex That Help The Spread Of HIV.

sexualityDiscussing unsafe sexual practices and beliefs instead of safe sexual practices may be seen to be controversial. We are also being very explicit with our terminology. We make no excuse for either of these things. We need to be explicit about the sexual practices that spread HIV, unprotected anal intercourse in particular. We are trying to redress the myths, beliefs and emerging cultural norms that have grown over time as a result of the extended impact of HIV/AIDS. HIV is still a real and present danger within our community.

Demystifying the HIV Window Period

hivmicrobe_smMaybe you’ve got great HIV risk reduction strategies in place – always use condoms for anal sex whether you’re the top or the bottom – but there was that night, not long ago, when both you and the guy you brought home were a bit pissy and you can’t remember if you used a condom. Or, maybe you’ve done the talk-test-test-trust strategy with the new love-of-your-life, and now the rubbers are off with the boyfriend, and on with everyone else.

Partying Hard

Partied Hard Partying and drugs are becoming more and more synonymous. Party environments can mean party attitudes – letting down your hair and sometimes your guard; particularly letting down your guard when it comes to your decisions about sex.

 The combination of drugs and a partying has the potential to lower our inhibitions, cloud our judgment or even make us unaware of what we're doing or have done –condoms use, rougher sex than normal, going for longer – in short, to increase our level of risk for our sexual health.

Is Gonorrhoea your Holiday Souvenir?

itestNew8589 We get “around”, especially when we are on holidays. And so does gonorrhoea, especially showing up in the throat and ass. 

Having just passed the holiday season and now entering the hot days of summer, the thought of lying by the pool, sipping on cocktails and meeting new friends is very enticing.

Regardless of where you’re meeting guys for hook-ups on your travels, whether overseas or interstate, giving or receiving head, you could be putting yourself at risk of getting gonorrhoea.

Syphilis at Beats

beatIt was about about 3 years ago that we first started talking about a syphilis outbreak that was threatening to get out of control here in Perth and since that time we have seen those numbers reduce through letting the community know, people getting tested, early detection and then treatment for those who needed it. The community really got behind this information and should be congratulated for understanding that to contain this sort of outbreak testing is such an important element of good sexual health.
