A Provocative Look At Promiscuity And The Gay Community In The Age Of PrEP And Truvada

Posted August 21, 2015 10:12 AM by with 0 comments

Those of us who came of age in the ‘Age of AIDS’ suddenly find ourselves in the ‘Age of PrEP’ and the “Time of Truvada.’ Sexuality is no longer playing Russian roulette with fate, but once again something to celebrate unfettered. But not to everyone. Enter the phenomenon of “slut shaping.” Yes, Zachary Quinto, I am talking to you.

“With things like more education, Truvada, things like that, we are seeing people live longer, we’re seeing ways to stay safe,” he said. “I think what’s going to happen next in terms of how gay men have sex is going to be very interesting.” ~Noah Michelson

This video is a provocative discussion on promiscuity, PrEP and how it effects all ages of the gay community differently. The panel includes includes Gay Voices editorial director Noah Michelson. I felt as if he was speaking for me.

I am a big fan of the ‘Gay Voices’ section of the Huffington Post, but generally not fond of their videos – they are no Tim & Roma Show that’s for sure. But today, they get a gold star!

The article, “A Look At The Promiscuity ‘Culture War’ In The Gay Community” is definitely worth putting on your weekend reading list. TGIF and Play Smart!
