“Remember, bisexuality doesn’t mean halfway between gay and straight. It is its own identity” – Evan Rachel Wood
As we’re marking the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia (IDAHOTB) this month, we’re looking at coming out as bisexual.
Chemsex is when gay, bi or other men who have sex with men (MSM) use any or a combination of drugs such as crystal methamphetamine, cat, mephedrone and/or GHB/GBL before or during sex.
It’s usually, but not always, used by men who hook up with other men through dating sites and apps.
As Chemsex often occurs without condoms and / or with injecting drugs it can come with a number of health risks, such as an increased chance of HIV infection.
PrEP is a daily pill that has shown to be extremely effective in stopping HIV infection and is worth considering for those who engage in Chemsex. (It does not, however, protect you from other STIs.)
To find out more details and to get PrEP for free from the TEN81 clinic in Pretoria, call us on 012 430 3272. We offer a friendly, professional and confidential service to gay, bi and other MSM.

Online dating can be fun but also poses potential dangers.
We’re excited to announce that as from 31 March 2018, the TEN81 Centre will also be open on Saturday mornings.
Our Saturday opening hours are 09h00 to 13h00.
This will help us assist clients who may struggle to get to our clinic during weekday office hours, which remain unchanged (08h00 to 16h00, Monday to Friday).
We look forward to seeing you! Remember to make an appointment by calling 066 190 5812 / 012 430 3272.
For many gay and bi men appearance is a huge deal. Our community seems to consistently define itself though images of attractive and shirtless muscled guys.
That can translate to a desire to make our bodies as sculpted as possible to meet that hard to achieve ideal. The guys who do transform their bodies at the gym become objects of sexual desire and represent an impressive commitment to a healthy lifestyle. But can striving to look good become a hazard?
