Have you ever worried he won’t hook up with you if you don’t want to bareback? Do you sometimes feel pressured to not use a condom, even if it’s subtle?
With special guest Dr. Shayna Skakoon-Sparling from the Condom Negotiation Project, we’ll dig into how power dynamics and other factors affect how gay Asian men use (or don’t use) condoms. We’ll look at successful strategies gay men use to insist on using condoms, but also on typical tactics guys use to give pressure into doing it raw.
Let’s hear from you! We’ll also have time to share and learn from each other’s personal experiences.
