Sex chat rooms
The roundtable discussion today is about MSM, sex and Internet chat rooms.My name is Mark Vogel and I am the project manager at HIV In Site, and I will be the moderator of today's discussion.The Internet affords anonymity (There is a great New Yorker slide that says, "On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog.")

I do not want to start off by blaming the Internet and saying, you know, "This medium is the reason that there are higher transmission rates." It is yet another way that men can meet men and a lot of the people who are meeting men on the Internet are also meeting men in bars and clubs and bath houses and parks and everywhere else. Adding to that, though, the Internet allows men to meet each other faster.You get on line, you want to get laid, you can have somebody at your house within an hour -- probably less in San Francisco! If you are experience is one that you are not crazy about, you can get back online and you can find somebody else to come over or to go to their house afterwards.Frank Strona: One of the things to keep in mind with Internet behavior is there is a perception of anonymity.It is a cultural norm to be able to put a photograph in the profile out there that does not have a face, it does not have a name associated and I think that there is a level of personal safety that you believe you have, giving the fact that you think people cannot identify you.
