Read my overview

ACON’s site How Hard is an outreach to the gay “sexually adventurous” community.

Fine. Whips, chains, have at it. The discussion around BDSM is one for another time.

But I have an issue with the risky behaviours promoted on this site, the way they are displayed in a sexualised setting, and the dehumanising language used to describe sexual partners.

Every page contains pornographic images.

The information on drugs is comprehensive and informative. Each drug is described for the reasons it is “great for fucking”.

The information is inconsistent

For example – One page states “Piss can carry STIs like Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia and Herpes” and then a paragraph later “Piss play is safe“.

Promotes erasure of boundaries

Dehumanising language

The site talks of dominating, breaking taboos, eroding boundaries. It reduces sex to fucking and being fucked. It splits people into tops (fuckers) and bottoms (fuckees).

The site is put together by a team of people with inhuman names.

Men aren’t sex robots

The content and tone of the site presupposes that, left to their own devices, men would be non-stop fucking to the extent of having to take drugs to keep themselves awake to prolong the party.

How is this a healthy image to promote to anyone? Mechanical sex supported by drug use.

This image supports the misogynist myth that men naturally need more sex than women, and the sex they ‘need’ is transactional, mechanical and dehumanised.

    • Some of the content was quite gross.

      I think there’s a tension between needing to “talk the talk” of people you need go reach and actually endorsing risky behaviour.

      This site crosses that line. It gleefully describes dangerous activities alongside detailing how different drugs work in a sexual context. Then as an afterthought they slip in a sentence or two about condom use.
