Most gay guys think they know everything there is to know about sex…but actually is there a lot more to learn? The latest issue of FS magazine from GMFA, the gay men’s health charity, gives you a wealth of information if you are clueless about sex, and some handy pointers if you’re not.
The article will help you get clued up about your cock, sucking, F!#king, your arse, STIs and HIV, GU clinics, and sex, drugs and alcohol. There’s a whole host of information that most of us were never told about in school, including:
You cock contains some of the most sensitive areas of your body. That’s why it’s so much fun to fool around with.
STIs like HIV can get into your body through your cock. The areas that let viruses in are the opening you wee through, your foreskin and the head.
Catching HIV from sucking cock is relatively rare. However, both partners can catch gonorrhoea, syphilis, herpes or Chlamydia from blow-jobs.
The lining of your arse is like a sponge that soaks up liquid, including spunk if you get f**ked without a condom and the guy cums inside you. That’s why the arse is so vulnerable to infections like HIV.
The route up your arse is not a straight line – there is a bend in it. That’s why certain sexual positions feel better than others.
There’s also a vox pop of gay guys talking about their first experiences of gay sex and where they got their gay sex education from. To read the full article, ‘Gay Sex for the clueless’, as well as other features including ‘How to have a winning relationship’ and ‘Six ways to improve your social life’, look out for your copy of FS, issue 117. It’s available for free in gay venues and GUM clinics across the UK or can be downloaded at www.gmfa.org.uk/fsnation.
Matthew Hodson, Head of Programmes at GMFA, comments: “As gay men, we don’t always get told about sex when we’re young and discovering what it’s all about. So we often have to learn through experience and from talking with other gay guys. With this article, we wanted to give useful advice on how to keep sex enjoyable as well information to help protect ourselves and our partners.”
