Poppers and HIV Infection
...." let’s not forget our dear friend poppers. You guys have a death grip on those little bottles like a steel trap. And they are just as commonly associated with sexual risk behavior and seroconversion as crystal is. Read your research literature, folks, it’s all there. And again, more guys use poppers than meth. On average, about10% of gay men have used crystal in the past year. It’s 2-4 times that with poppers. Take onelook at Craigslist and you’ll see ads all over that say “no PNP. Poppers OK.”Is this really OK? Is it really OK that guys feel like they can’t have the sex they want without inhaling chemicals? I realize that no one is losing a job to poppers addiction, but plenty aregetting HIV. Is this really OK? "
Susan Kingston Keynote, June 2007; Chicago AIDS Fdtn HIV Forum
www.tht.org.uk/informationresources/publicationsf 2007 British research suggests that sniffing poppers during sex makes HIV infection more likely. Go to section called Terence Higgins Trust newsletter article: "Poppers - Number Crunching" page 7.
