Psychosexual therapist Kate Morley told Hello U: ‘Going to sex roulette parties is about the risk, partygoers think the higher the risk, the stronger the thrill.‘In the case of sex parties the intense high is as you combine orgasm with high adrenaline.’ Again, the report seems to only reference one doctor and one psychotherapist.Spanish doctors have noted a rise in the parties where attendees often take anti-viral drugs to reduce the risk of transmission.Dr Josep Mallolas of Hospital Clinic Barcelona said that the parties are a sign that people have ‘lost respect’ for HIV, reports el Periodico.A slew of online reports in sensationalist news outlets allege that the latest gay sex phenomenon is the ‘sex roulette’ party, an organized orgy of sorts where one person is HIV positive—and no one knows who. First of all, the assertion that such parties could even be orchestrated is kind of ridiculous.
An enquiry carried out by French polling and market research company Ifop testing young people's knowledge of the virus in the country unveiled some terrifying observations.As the pie chart shows, the proportion of red versus blue approaches 50-50 (the law of large numbers).But the difference between red and blue does not systematically decrease to zero.The concept is "sexual roulette", whereby people gather to participate in orgies without the use of protection. The idea, inspired by Russian roulette, is to incorporate HIV positive members into the group to increase the sense of danger."Some parties only accept those with the virus while others provide blue pills which are meant to prevent the contraction of the virus – drugs which are not prescribed in Spain and are thus bought on the black market." notes that the city's Hospital Clínico y Provincial de Barcelona is seeing the effects of the sinister trend.On Spanish site , one 22-year-old participant explains that he would "prefer to take the risk of contracting AIDS than wear a condom all his life" before noting that it's possible to find the blue pills preventing the virus on the black market.
