I am a 30-something African-American gay man in New York. HIV is constantly on my mind. Not so much my HIV-negative status. Rather, even though I watched my parents die of AIDS when I was young, I still struggle with whether I should take the drug Truvada, a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) that can protect almost completely against HIV.

Chemsex Has Always Been With Us

Not before time, the gay press in London, realising we have a dangerous drugs-and-sex scene here that is killing gay men, has finally started to cover it in an analytic, compassionate and sober way (pun intended). I’m pleased about this, and pleased by this powerfully written piece by David Stuart (see https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/chemsex-will-defines-period-gay-history/#gs.3r47mag). No one has done more to help and rescue gay Londoners who have got lost in the maze of chemsex, and help them achieve self-respect and structure in their lives. And yet I disagree that Chemsex is anything new. We gay men have been always been furtive about the sex we sex we want and do, and have always sought private, intoxicated spaces to do it in.

James Wharton addresses ‘vile and disgusting’ gay sauna comments

In a 2014 column for Attitude’s sister publication Winq, James wrote: “Sex saunas need to be history. The time has come to close them down. If we don’t, we feed the haters and we hand the bigots who remain a vocal minority ammunition with which to attack us.” Now, in an interview for Attitude’s September issue, Matt Cain asks James whether he was guilty of hypocricy after writing about his experiences with chemsex. “In three years a lot can happen,” James replies, “and a lot of which happened to me I do discuss in the book.”
