Cracks in the Ice are hosting a webinar by Dr Kerryn Drysdale titled “Finding pleasure in risky combinations of sex and drugs: crystal methamphetamine use among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men in Australia” on Friday 24th of June at 12pm AEST.

Drawing on data collected for the “Crystal, Pleasures and Sex between Men” project, this webinar will explore the complex relationship between sex and drugs, known colloquially as ‘chemsex’ or ‘party and play’.

The webinar will outline an alternative to risk-focused accounts and instead introduce key concepts like ‘sex-based sociality’, ‘stigma ecologies’, and ‘counterpublic health’, to better understand these pleasures – and their practical translation in service engagement.
