Second, there is little evidence to back up the reports that were carried by outlets such as The Sun, The Mirror and The Daily Mail (and later picked up by some gay news outlets).
So far, there seems to be only one doctor from Spain and one psychotherapist who have attested to the rise of the gay ‘sex roulette’ party …
As with sex bracelets, gerbiling, or tales of lobster-based gratification gone awry, sex roulette (and its predecessor, “bug chasing”) appear to be solely based on extrapolation.
Logistically, in order to guarantee that at least one person at such a party is ‘secretly’ HIV positive, one of the event’s planners would have to make sure to invite someone who is HIV positive.
In other words, the identity of the HIV positive guest would be known to at least one person–making it not a secret.
On , Britain’s Extreme ‘ sex roulette ‘ parties – where one person secretly has HIV and no one is allowed to wear a condom – are on the rise, doctors have warned.
The risky orgies are usually attended by gay men and offer the so-called ‘thrill’ of not knowing whether or not you will be infected .
At any rate, Chatroulette took a lot of heat for it’s problem with men revealing their genitals too often.
Although it still can be a bit of a problem, they have done a decent job cleaning it up so it’s not quite as bad as it used to be.Doctors in Barcelona have seen a rise in the number of such parties, which they claim is a sign that people have “lost respect” for HIV.Dr Josep Mallolas of Hospital Clinic Barcelona told el Periodico : “There is everything: sex roulette parties, or sex parties you can only attend if you already have HIV.” He added that some of the events are known as ‘blue’ parties because attendees take anti-viral drugs to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus.A Spanish-language source cited by English-language tabloids seemed to stipulate that the activity was restricted to gay men.That article (translated) mentioned sex roulette, before addressing a single doctor’s larger cautionary viewpoint: Doctors at Hospital Clínic dealing with infectious diseases and AIDS have warned that Barcelona residents are having encounters known as sexual roulette, in which one person of the group is infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, in order to give them a more stimulating experience. Josep Mallolas, warn that people have “lost respect” for a disease that, when treated, is no longer deadly, but is incurable and life threatening.Some HIV-positive men, it is also alleged, are just as willing to infect these troubled souls with HIV. There were occasional stories about it in the late 1990s, stories that fueled an urban legend but that never made it to the mainstream. Because of simple lack of hard evidence that anyone but a very few disturbed people were involved.
