Anal sex is something that many feel is part and parcel of being gay. Despite this, few of us talk about it and even fewer of us know what we're doing when we first try it. (Guides to anal sex are few and far between.)
This lack of knowledge and the unfortunate societal taboo associated with the anus (shame, embarrassment and disgust) could lead to unpleasant experiences that may affect the way you feel about anal sex.
"I don't always use condoms when I have sex with a guy. I know I shouldn’t bareback but I'm prepared to take the risk. It's like smoking. I know it can give me cancer, but I still do it."
To some, 26-year-old Joburger Kenny's statement may be shocking, but many guys will also relate to his views when it comes to barebacking; the practice of having anal sex without using condoms.
Do you recognise these men? They are the three accused in the murder of Barney van Heerden in Joburg and may be possible members of a gang targeting gay men nationally.
OUT, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) health and well-being group in Pretoria, once again calls on gay, bisexual and men who have sex with men to take precautions in light of the murders of at least eight gay men in Gauteng and the recent murder of a gay man in Cape Town.
Police have confirmed that they believe that a gang targeting gay men has been operating in these areas. Even though three men have been arrested in one of the murder cases, police have warned gay men nationally to be wary of whom they allow into their homes as other suspects may continue to target them.
