So this is where we’re at as a society. One minute we’re all about eating ass, the next we’re willingly having unprotected orgies with HIV carriers — because that’s the natural progression of things.
From Dazed Digital:
A dangerous new trend, in which teenagers have unprotected orgies with HIV carriers, is reportedly on the rise in Barcelona.
According to several reports in the Spanish media, the high-risk activity – more commonly known as ‘sex roulette’ – has been growing in popularity across the Catalan capital. Much like Russian roulette, the sex parties are aimed at people who want to add an element of danger to their carnal connections, by inviting (at least) one ‘secret’ HIV carrier to the group.
The trend, which is apparently practiced by people of all sexualities, echoes the equally contentious ‘bugchasing’ movement; where gay men actively pursue the virus for sexual pleasure.
But why, despite all the obvious dangers, is this disturbing trend so appealing? “Going to sex roulette parties is about the risk, partygoers think the higher the risk, the stronger the thrill,” says psychosexual therapist Kate Morley. “In the case of sex parties the intense high is as you combine orgasm with high adrenaline.
Of course this was first big in the LGBT community. The gays are always just a step ahead of us in virtually everything. They trail-blazed booty play, EDM, hookup apps, and now sex roulette. If you want to know the next big fad in sexual exploration, just ask those rainbow warriors.
This here, though, is a classic example of where the juice just isn’t worth the squeeze. Herpes roulette? Fuck it, I’m game. That’s just a few uncomfortable bumps and conversations every now and again. But AIDS? No nut is worth AIDS. I don’t care that Magic Johnson seemingly gets better with age or that it’s no longer the death sentence it was during the late ’80s. You get the AIDS and you’re banking on this roulette craze being here for the long run because no one else is knowingly fucking you. I’m not seeing that. So for your next orgy, stay woke and strap up..
