This month in our continuing series, we look at chemsex and process addiction, and how gay men can be vulnerable when the two are combined. By Vanessa McQuarrie

THE APPEAL OF combining sex and drugs is obvious: more intense sex, increased arousal, lower inhibitions, and enhanced intimacy.

People have been combining drugs and sex – as couples and in groups – ever since, well, ever since they could. The types of drugs involved change according to what”s popular at the time and available.

Chemsex or “Party And Play” (PnP for short) is an iteration predominantly practiced by gay and bisexual men. PnP has come to focus on a handful of illicit drugs which, combined with prescription medications such as Viagra, add longevity to its list of appealing attributes.

About DNA Magazine

DNA #227 Welcome to the Swimwear issue for the Summer of 2018/19. We’ve called it Freedom – because that’s what summer means to us, and because this season swimwear brands have thrown out the rule book and gone a bit crazy with their ranges. Good crazy! So, DNA sent our hot cover model Benji Condie and the team to the beach to capture 10 brilliant, sexy, wet pages of summer swimwear styles. And, just like summer, this issue of DNA is all sexed-up! In our regular column, Your Best Sex Move, we teach the finer points of topping! Our Raunchy Read (Speedo Revelation) will satisfy anyone with a swimwear fetish. And adult star Skyy Knox gets cool, classy and naked for Vincent Chine’s camera. We celebrate the 10th anniversary of iconic Aussie label, Teamm8 with a look back at some of their highlights – cue more hot guys in swimwear, underwear and sports gear! Reality dating just took an LGBTIQ turn with Brooklyn and Esteban finding each other on Blind Date – we catch up with the loved-up couple. Meanwhile, Courtney Act hosts The Bi Life on UK TV, bringing swinging boys and girls together. Ahhh! For pop culture lovers, we head to the theatre to see the stage versions of the lives of Cher, Donna Summer and Tina Turner, and we find out what electronica/pop genius John Grant has been up to – quite a lot actually! And we interview adult star Cade Maddox with some deep (and not so deep) questions. Getting serious, we continue our series examining addictions – this month, sex addiction and process addiction (something tons of gay men don’t even know they have). Plus, we discuss the publication of the HIV Book Project, which recounts the lives of many diverse people living with HIV. Plus, there’s all your favourite regulars and reviews.
