Sex Roulette: Barcelona’s New And Dangerous Underground Trend
Sex Roulette – This is Barcelona’s new and dangerous underground trend that is starting to make more and more waves among Catalan youngsters. Barcelona’s French language publication Equinox, quoted by Konbini, was the first to shatter some light on what’s going on in Catalonia’s capital, behind closed curtains.
“Some parties only accept those with the virus while others provide blue pills which are meant to prevent the contraction of the virus – drugs which are not prescribed in Spain and are thus bought on the black market.”
‘Sex Roulette’ is a constantly growing number of orgies taking place in Barcelona where people are gathered to participate in sexual acts without protection. The really weird and twisted part is that HIV positive members are introduced in every group in order to increase the sense of danger. The inspiration for this concept comes from Russian roulette, where fear and danger release adrenaline.
According to local paper L’Indépendant, based on figures from Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, one of Barcelona’s hospitals – Clínico y Provincial de Barcelona – is already witnessing the severe and shocking effects of this underground trend. More and more patients concerned about HIV have been coming to the hospital for medical checkups and 4,500 infected people have been already offered treatment.
Sex roulette is also leading to the huge increase of Hepatitis C, chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis. As a 22-year-old Spanish participant to these orgies said to Cadena Ser, he “prefers to take the risk of contracting AIDS than wearing a condom all his life”. He backs his belief up by saying that there are pills on the black market that can prevent getting the virus. This trend has already occurred in the US during the 1990s, but it is no longer a thing today.
HIV facts and figures around Europe:
A recent survey conducted by Ifop, a French polling and market research company, brings into light the fact that Europeans are almost not at all concerned about getting HIV. The survey also reveals some pretty terrifying facts about how little do Europeans know about the virus.
- 76% of participants are concerned about HIV – a drop in numbers compared to 2015 when 83% of participants claimed to be concerned about the virus.
- 30% of participants have false conceptions about HIV – higher than the 2015 figures.
- 20% of participants believed that HIV can be transmissible via kissing – in 2015, 15% believed the same thing.
- 17% of young people believe that the morning after pill can prevent infection.
