Product Description

“Vulnerable gay men with issues around sex, new drugs that tapped into that problem and changing technology. What they call the perfect storm”

Chemsex: the name given to the rising phenomenon which refers to the use of drugs in a sexual context. Often referring to group sex that can last for days, the allure of chemsex has lead to many young men being trapped in a vicious circle of sex, addiction and dependence.

This powerful and potent film tells the stories of gay men whose lives have been affected by the crisis; from self-confessed ‘slammers’ to sexual health workers, from those who deny there’s a problem to those who ‘got out alive’. Offering unprecedented access, CHEMSEX is a brave and unflinching journey into the hidden world of modern, urban gay life.
