It's natural to be tongue-tied and embarrassed when asking a new partner to use a condom, but focusing on long-term health -- and responsible sex -- can ease the discomfort.
You’re nervous and excited when you first arrive at the orgy — everyone there is a major babe alert, DTF, and one mystery guest just happens to be HIV-positive.

Hocking and his colleagues designed a role-playing scenario in which each participant imagined he or she was going to have sex with a new partner for the first time.
The students visualized how they met, what they were wearing on the night that sex was likely to occur, even whether they both enjoyed the movie on their fantasy date or not.
On the average, the students whose partners insisted on using a condom said they felt safer and had less regret about the encounter than those who didn't.

The parties are usually attended by gay men, who are entertained by the ‘thrill’ of not knowing whether they will be infected or not.
Spanish doctors have noted a rise in the parties where attendees often take anti-viral drugs to reduce the risk of transmission. Mallolas claims some of these parties are known as “blue” parties because…
Nevertheless, you try to live in the moment, surrendering your body to hunk after hunk, closing your eyes and choosing to ), you’ve just attended your first (or maybe your fifth) “sex roulette” party, a troubling and probably totally pretend new trend that’s a new spin on the idea of “bug chasing” or “gift giving.” Even some gay press reported the story as reputable news.
“Doctors” warn that these nefarious sex parties are “on the rise,” according to Sex roulette parties where one person is secretly HIV positive and nobody is allowed to use condoms are on the rise, warn doctors.
Both male and female subjects tended to view a relationship as closer, more intimate, and more likely to last when their partners insisted on using a condom.
