  Semen Needed?

"Recent work on the urban gay male social history illustrates the imbrication of social relations with sexuality. Before the advent of AIDS, men undertook enormous risks to have anal sex [Chauncey: Gay New York, 1994]. Men have been willing to face the scorn of families, the loss of employment opportunities, and the threat of street violence for sex with other men" (Rofes, 1996: 166). [Only "anal sex"? Or was it mostly "oral sex?"]

[Frank Ruggero: My seed is in you]  "There are times when I want cum so badly that I fantasize going to a straight man who is uninfected or a gay man who is uninfected and asking him for his cum... I have fantasies of getting cum from a 16-year-old kid who has never had sex. I hate to make it sound like I an addicted to the substance" (Johnston, 1995: 212).

"Don't swallow semen (though you deeply want that man's essence inside you). Don't let him shoot up your bum (even as you're moaning inside, 'Come in me, come in me!')" [Bebout, 1999].

[James Douglas] "Just about every gay male friend has told me that they have had at least one episode of unsafe oral sex within the last year. These are guys who know a lot about HIV. If that is so, then in any group of gay men, a lot have been having unsafe sex within the last year, but very few are willing to talk" (Johnston, 1995: 266).

[Phone Sex:] "Something in the words, in his description of 'needing sperm' and 'needing to know you're in me without anything between us,' is highly charged for both of us... I have talked to other men through phone sex lines who have also eroticized unprotected anal sex... I am speaking about men who find it exiting to consciously not use protection, and to articulate, often repeatedly, that condoms are not going to be used and that sperm is going to enter the anal tract... The focus of my interest is on men who may be fucking and getting fucked and their erotic experience is heightened by a conscious and articulated refusal to use condoms" (Rofes, 1996: 169- 70].

"'You don't think about it too much when you are the passive one. Most guys I'm together with are older than me. They are usually in charge'" "...He takes no initiative and steers the situation as little as possible. This passivity towards sexuality is widespread among gay men on their way out" (Prieur, 1990: 112).

"The Language of Love: Other reasons for experiencing difficulty in making changes can lie in the emotional meaning that certain sexual acts have... 'When he sucks, he insists that his partner come in his mouth: 'If you don't swallow it, you haven't given him anything'" (Prieur, 1990: 113).

[Abstract] "...safer sex is often experienced as emotionally colder, as expressions of distrust, and as a reminder of death. To receive the semen is traditionally valued as a commitment to the partner. Sexual acts compose a language of love and affection, and the protective measures destroy this language" (Prieur, 1990: 109). ["Traditionally"? How long has this "commitment to partner" association existed? What about "public sex"? What about all the "sex on the side without commitment"? Etc..]
