Abstract
This study examines a significant gay 'subculture', that od sexual adventurism. We sought to understand how gay men made sense of their adventurous sex, the social context in which it was practised, and the HIV-related health risks associated with it. The objectives of the study were to: - map the social context in which sexual adventurism occurs - understand the ways in which gay men engage in a sexually adventurous subculture - investigate the sexual practices and drug use of gay men in the context of adventurous sexual sessions - identify the relationship between unsafe sex, drug use and sexual adventurism.
