Sex is a big part of the queer community. Whether it’s attending sex on premise venues or sex parties, identifying as asexual, a commitment to monogamy, or being in a polyamorous or open relationship – there are many layers to queer sex. Many people use it as a chance to explore their sexuality and their identity. However, there are also many issues around queer sex that don’t often get spoken about – such as consent, STIs, stigma around those who are HIV positive, sexual racism – and, for members of the asexual community, sex isn’t on their radar at all. In Queer Sex Part 1, we explore the layers of queer sex, and how to cut through stigma in the modern dating scene.
