We spoke to guys in London about where they meet others for bareback sex

If you’re meeting guys for bareback sex, it’s important to know that they want the same thing so that you’re both happy with the level of risk you’re taking.

We asked guys into bareback sex where they meet their sexual partners.

 

Andrew

“I meet a lot of guys in clubs. Sex clubs or regular clubs. As the night goes on you talk about what you want. Some guys are more upfront than others, but most will tell you what they are looking for.”

Tip: It’s important not to make assumptions. Asking a guy what kind of sex he’s into, will make it easier to make sure you’re compatible when it comes to sexual safety.

 

Tim:

“These days I go online for sex. I make it clear what I want from the start. That way it’s easier to find what I’m looking for online.”

Tip: Use your profile to indicate what you want. Be honest from the start when you’re chatting to guys to make sure you’re both after the same thing.

 

John:

“I like outdoor sex so I go to cruising grounds sometimes. It’s hard to figure out what guys want there, but people bring condoms if they want that. I tell guys I haven’t got them if they ask. I think you need to take responsibility for your actions.”

Tip: Some guys might not be as experienced as you or as well informed about sexual health and sexual risk. Making sure someone is happy with the kind of sex you want, makes sure you are both consenting to the type of sex and risks.

 

Don’t forget. If you bareback without PrEP or PEP protection you should test for HIV regularly and whenever you feel unwell. PRIME members can walk into Dean Street Express without a reservation or order a home test kit.
