Plenary: Towards better sex with less harm for gay and bisexual men

15th annual CHAPS Conference (C15), Bristol, February 29th - March 1st 2012

Speakers: Ford Hickson

This challenging and thought-provoking Plenary leads us through the arguments that could lead to a renewal of sexual health work with men who have sex with men. It argues that reducing HIV incidence is not enough common ground on which health commissioners, community based organisations and men having sex can collaborate: we must also aim towards improving men's sex lives. What that best sex life will be varies enormously. Therefore no single risk reduction tactic will be desirable and sufficient for all instances of sex between men in the future. Promoting precautions means acknowledging the benefits of choices often ignored by community health promotion.
