Posted on 05/24/2018 1:12:27 PM PDT by C19fan
A drug-fueled sex fad called "chemsex" was linked to increased risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among men who have sex with men (MSM), researchers found.
Gay, bisexual or other MSM who disclosed use of chemsex were more likely to be newly diagnosed with HIV infection, acute bacterial and rectal STIs, and hepatitis C, reported Mark Pakianathan, MBChB, of Wandsworth Integrated Sexual Health at The Courtyard Clinic in London, and colleagues.

Have never heard the term “Chemsex” before, but I imagine it does not involve Hazmat Suits (although it probably should)
Who is actually surprised that drug-fueled high-risk sexual encounters would result in increased exposure to STDs? This is like being surprised that Russian Roulette can lead to gunshot wounds.
Ahhh......... so why do we even care about Chem whatever here
We get stuck paying for their medical bills.
Only the term “chemsex” is “new”. The rest of the facts of what it is and where it is practiced, demographically, in greater %’s than elsewhere are old news. I also do not think it is news that the chemicals involved are bad enough for one’s health to likely lower not just “inhibitions” but the body’s defenses against infections.
Well, I hope they think it was worth it, but I’m sure they rather regret their behavior. Don’t look for anyone else to save you, talk to your gay brethren and warn them yourself.
There is NO good reason why this disease should exist anymore. People are too damned stupid and stubborn.
Sorry, Charlie, but we each pay a fabulous price for our vision of Paradise.
Can we hope for some overdoses?
I had to look it up myself. It’s shooting a mix of crystal methamphetamine, GHB (gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid, an anaesthetic), and mephedrone (bath salts). By people who apparently think it’s a good idea...
Druggies, drug users
What sad lives.
There was a theory that HIV alone did not result in a.i.d.s. but with use of particular drugs for “recreation” that supressed/altered the immune system.
Not to worry. The Pope says God made them this way.
but people should be allowed to do whatever drugs they want, no questions asked...who are we to judge?....../sarcasm/
Faggies just gotta have fun.
The leftists are on a continual promotion of homosexuality despite the diseases it causes.
I don't get it.
Learned a new word today.
So, these are injectable drugs?
Just one more added vector for disease. Yeah, they’re going to use sterile needs alright. /sarc
Note they’re “infections” now, not “diseases”.
A very old story.
No one can say the ancient Hebrews didn’t try to squelch it.
Though homos are high on the list of those who recoil at ancient scripture.
