Sex chat without an acocount red flags for dating men
Hi Snopes, I have seen stories floating around Facebook (as well as a couple of sensationalist British newspapers) claiming that 'sex roulette parties'involving a hiv positive participant are on the rise.Is there any truth to this or is it fake news being mistaken for the truth?The story centers on a bizarre sub-subcultural phenomenon known as “bug chasing.” A few HIV-negative gay men, for all sorts of deep and dark psychological reasons, appear actually to be seeking out HIV infection.Some HIV-positive men, it is also alleged, are just as willing to infect these troubled souls with HIV. There were occasional stories about it in the late 1990s, stories that fueled an urban legend but that never made it to the mainstream. Because of simple lack of hard evidence that anyone but a very few disturbed people were involved.The risky orgies are usually attended by gay men and offer the so-called ‘thrill’ of not knowing whether or not you will be infected .Doctors in Barcelona have seen a rise in the number of such parties, which they claim is a sign that people have “lost respect” for HIV.For many who witnessed the media onslaught, it will soon be accepted as fact.
Last year, a Serbian stripper called Tijana claimed the parties originated in Serbia – and were named Serbian sex roulette, after Russian roulette, Metro reported.That article (translated) mentioned sex roulette, before addressing a single doctor’s larger cautionary viewpoint: Doctors at Hospital Clínic dealing with infectious diseases and AIDS have warned that Barcelona residents are having encounters known as sexual roulette, in which one person of the group is infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, in order to give them a more stimulating experience. Josep Mallolas, warn that people have “lost respect” for a disease that, when treated, is no longer deadly, but is incurable and life threatening.These meetings, reports Cadena Ser, consist of groups of people — usually gay men — who engage in orgies or group sex that include the guest suffering from AIDS, but without disclosing which participant is the sick individual.In other words, the identity of the HIV positive guest would be known to at least one person–making it not a secret.Second, there is little evidence to back up the reports that were carried by outlets such as The Sun, The Mirror and The Daily Mail (and later picked up by some gay news outlets).
Would just like to congratulate you for putting the smile back on my face!
