Storyline

In hidden basements, bedrooms and bars across London, "Chemsex" is a documentary that exposes frankly and intimately a dark side to modern gay life. Traversing an underworld of intravenous drug use and weekend-long sex parties, "Chemsex" tells the story of several men struggling to make it out of 'the scene' alive - and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them. While society looks the other way, this powerful and unflinching film uncovers a group of men battling with HIV, drug addiction and finding acceptance in a changing world. Written by Peccadillo Pictures

Good look at the Seedy side of gay life
12 March 2016 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A really good insight into the more seedy side of gay life, loving the honesty (and good looking guys!) and truths told through the eyes of real gay men. Opens your eyes to the underground life that is in our society. Does not hide anything, real tears and real lives! I would highly recommend anyone to watch this documentary, whether you're straight or gay. Good on the producers for covering this area, more should be made me thinks. A must see in my books!! Going into the lives of a group of men who partake in both gay sex and enhanced chemically enduced sexual parties, is a non discussed area in life today, shame as it is part of our modern culture and today's society, covering all levels of people from high rollers to the people who have to sell their bodies.
