For gay & bi men
Crystal Meth, GBL and Mephedrone are being used by increasing numbers of gay men to have sex, with a myriad of sexual health consequences. Many are also finding it a rare or difficult thing to have sober sex at all.
If you want to discuss drugs, alcohol and sex, visit CODE – a service for gay and bi men who have sex with men and who are either into harder sex or the fetish scene, or who may use drugs during sex.
We recognise that some men may be reluctant to discuss certain practices for fear of ignorance or judgement. At CODE we’ve assembled a team with expert knowledge to address this – we’re here to help not to judge.
We offer full sexual health screenings and vaccinations including Hepatitis and liver tests, Hepatitis A & B vaccination and 60 second HIV results as well as substance use advice including the use of steroids and liver function tests. You are also free to just pop in for a casual chat about sex and drugs. Condoms, lube and gloves are available in-clinic.
When & where: Every Tuesday evening from 5pm to 7pm at 56 Dean Street, London W1D 6AQ. Walk-in appointments - no need to book.
Visit the CODE website or take a look at the new CODE video below.
CODE is run in partnership between London Friend's Antidote service and 56 Dean Street, part of the Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust.
