How sex roulette parties have become the norm in certain highly charged clicks in Europe who have put the fear of disease aside or rather revel in its risk.
Extreme sex roulette parties have become the norm in certain circles in which one person, unbeknownst to other participants has HIV and where no one is allowed to wear a condom, physically participate with each other.
A predominant amount of the orgies are thought to be attended by gay men, with the set ups said to be commonplace in wealthy circles in Serbia.
According to experts the thrill of the unknown that drives people to take part in the risky sex romps.
Participants have no way of knowing if they will be infected or not.
Told Dr Josep Mallolas of Hospital Clinic Barcelona via el Periodico where similar sex roulette parties have also caught on in Barcelona, Spain: ‘There is everything: sex roulette parties, or sex parties you can only attend if you already have HIV.’
The Spanish doctor reasoned that the rise of the sex roulette parties meant that people had lost respect for HIV.
That said, participants can decrease their chances of contracting the incurable virus by taking medication.
Because of this, the orgies are known as ‘blue’ parties.
A report via DazedDigital.com noted Spanish media saying the trend is occurring among teens who engage in orgies, as evidenced by the recent statistics of HIV treatment.
According to Barcelona’s Hospital Clinic, the outlet is reportedly treating about 100 HIV infected people each day along with cases of hepatitis C, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.
The increase of these incidents is said to be connected to young people who are not worried about HIV; 24 percent of 15-25-year-olds ‘not afraid’ of the incurable virus that most often leads to AIDS.
Told psychosexual therapist Kate Morley via HelloU: ‘Going to sex roulette parties is about the risk, partygoers think the higher the risk, the stronger the thrill.
‘In the case of sex parties the intense high is as you combine orgasm with high adrenaline.’
Adding: ‘However the high is short term and the long term consequences are dangerous as not only is there the risk of contracting HIV, but other harmful sexually transmitted infections.’
Caitlin Maron, of AVERT, an HIV/AIDS awareness group, added:
‘We’ve become victims of our own success when it comes to treatment. HIV treatment is much more accessible and effective in this era, and people living with HIV are living healthier lives and into old age. As such, many people may feel that becoming infected with HIV isn’t such a “big deal.” …
According to one stripper named Tijana, the risque sex parties come from Serbia.
She said that the orgies were known as Serbian sex roulette, a play on Russian roulette.
Told Tijana via Serbian newspaper Telegraf: ‘I can see that everyone is talking about sex parties now, but in fact they have been common for a long time even here in Serbia.
‘In fact what really shocked me was this bizarre variation that seems popular for extreme sex. People who turn up for the party wear masks, and one of them has HIV.
‘The wealthy organize these sex parties for other rich people. The real kick for these people is apparently the risk that they might be the one having sex with the HIV-infected partner.’
According to a report via the dailystar in January of 2015, a then 23 year old Tijana said the game was allegedly invented in Slovenia hence its title, Slovenian sex roulette and is like Russian roulette because it is a game of chance that can kill you.
