MANNING THE TRENCHES IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST DRUGS

A HARD-HITTING LOOK AT THE CHEMSEX UNDERWORLD ALL TOO PRESENT IN THE GAY COMMUNITY

BOOK OF THE MONTH

SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND

James Wharton/Biteback

An unflinching and vital new contribution to the on-going discussion about gay men, addictive behaviour, mental health and self-care, from James Wharton, an openly gay former soldier and author of Out in the Army. Following the breakdown of his marriage, James moved to London and became immersed in the chemsex scene. In this clear, considered and non-judgmental book, he tells of his experiences, and interviews everyone from drug dealers to sexual-health professionals about a growing gay subculture that those on the outside sensationalise and those involved in are often afraid to analyse. He goes into detail about the drugs and explores the triggers underlying use and relapse. He also looks at sexual consent, often a blurry issue for men who have been up for days having multiple sexual encounters on a cocktail of drugs, as well as STIs, psychosis and death. See p62.
