My sex, my sexual health

You've probably heard that STIs are on the rise among gay and bisexual men. Wooh!

STIs are annoying but they are also a fact of our (sexual) lives. Plus, they don't seem likely to just vanish anytime soon: throat gonorrhoea, shantay you stay. 

If we're going to have any hope of reducing infection rates, we need information on how gay and bisexual men understand STIs, including ways of preventing and managing them. 

We need your help

Recruitment for this study is closed; thank you to everyone who took part. Participants were involved in a month-long anonymous forum, discussing issues around sex and sexual health. By contributing their experiences and perceptions, participants have helped inform health initiatives into the future. 

Information on this project's findings will be made available by the end of this year. For more detail on the study, please click here to download a study information form
