Chemsex/Slamsex and STIs: What are the Risks?


Results of this study suggest a combined epidemic of sexual ill-health, drug use harms, and mental illness among HIV-positive MSM who engage in slamsex and chemsex.

STIs and new HIV diagnoses have increased markedly in the UK in recent years, and men who have sex with men are the most heavily affected. What do chemsex and slamsex have to do with this trend?
