Presentation summary:
During this timely workshop, our presenters will be examine the dynamic reasons for preferring certain sex acts over others, like chemsex, given the advent of PrEP. They will also examine condomless sex and its appeal to certain individuals, and how PrEP is changing attitudes about sex and sexuality. Given the predominance of shame surrounds HIV and PrEP, what role should a therapist play in discussing sex and offering direct advice?
