But the thing with sex is that everyone thinks they are the greatest lover, but sex is also like baseball; everyone can play baseball, but how many of us are good enough to make it to the world series?
In the 1934 film Sex Madness, the opening credits implore us that syphilis “must no longer remain hushed, but must be fought in the open like any other dangerous contagious disease….humanity must be enlightened! Ignorance must be abolished! Young and old.. rich and poor, they must be told.”
Sex Madness is a camp movie but even way back in the 1930s people struggled with how to discuss sex out in the open. Substitute HIV/AIDS for syphilis and you can see we might not have come as far as we thought in thinking about diseases and sex.
On today’s show, join for a lively discussion at the Center on Halsted in Chicago on gay men’s relationship to sex and risk.
The forum features panel experts Dr. David Halperin of the University of Michigan, Dr. Gary Harper of DePaul University and Dr. Michele Morales of Northwestern University, as well as LifeLube’s Jim Pickett and questions from you, the general public.
Discover some of the inaccurate and damaging psychological concepts that are being used to describe gay men. Are some of the studies being done actually making us sick? What do we all ultimately desire?
