What I mean by that is that the exploitation of young boys by older men is so shocking and the physical repercussions are not just STDs.

Yes, Whirliwig, I've posted on that on another thread. It's incredibly exploitative. Young girls being asked whether they give oral sex or receive anal sex and then their answers are filmed! People who are worried they have an STD filmed waiting for results. What is shocking is that it's filmed, not that all that goes on.

Mind you the young gay man a few weeks ago who said he'd slept with 80 men in the last three months and didn't know the name of any of them really shocked me. He was involved in the gay porn industry and didn't want to stop having sex for two weeks in order that his STD was cleared up. I wasn't convinced he'd last that long.

I wondered about the physical state of his body, having anal sex so frequently.

What completely stuns me is that people volunteer to be filmed for these types of programmes!hmm. I feel like the younger ones have their need for 15 minutes of fame, that seems so widespread amongst young people these days, exploited. I've only watched the first episode but the girl with freakishly false eyelashes and pink hair made me despair - where was her self respect? I can't help thinking she must be crying out for affection acting like that sad

getagoldtoof - that episode has stayed with me too. Really sad. The whole show is a complete eye opener for me. I think the nurse had it right when she said that sex is a recreational activity for young people now, far more than it ever was when I was 15 or 16. It's no shame to have several STDs, it's just become the norm. The staff at the clinic are all absolutely brilliant. It's a great series but boy does it make you think.

Watched last week and was slightly amased that they all got neg results. I'v led a sheltered life. am now confused about the hiv guy, did he get a positive test that was wrong, then sleep with hiv guys because he thought he was positive, only to get infected?

The attitude of those guys about clamydia was shocking, do they really not know the long term effects?

The one with the guy who got a + HIV result sad, turned out to be a false positive. It has stayed with me. Desperately sad.

I've just watched it from the other night with DH, it was eye opening! Some very naive kids out there, don't worry if you catch something you can take a tablet and it'll clear up, really!!!

It is certainly an eye opener! Do these young people seriously not realise that are making themselves very vulnerable to a life changing disease. Chlamydia may clear with some antibiotics but HIV doesnt. I don't think they understand the severity of what they do. I think the nurses are too softly softly with them to be honest.

I think the man with HIV said he slept with other HIV+ men.

Did anyone see the episode of this a week or two ago with the HIV+ man who was there for a check up as he thought he had another bout of Gonorrhea? He talked quite openly about how he had lots of sex with men but didn't use condoms - surely this is illegal? I'm sure people have been put in prison for deliberately infecting others with STIs....? It wasn't brought up though.

A very depressing programme.

I'm the first to admit that I have led a rather conservative life but I've worked in interesting areas medically and know lots that shocks my non-medical husband, but, goodness me, my eyes have been opened.

Do people really live like this?!

Am I the weird one?
