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
This film tells the lives of some homosexual individuals in London, who are hooked on sex while under the influence of illicit drugs.
This is a controversial and highly explicit documentary film that features a lot of sex scenes and drug taking scenes. What is more disturbing is the fact that the individuals interviewed in the film actually do much harm to themselves by their chosen lifestyle, yet they see good rather than destruction resulting from it. Then a club owner talks about how patrons collapse into a coma in his establishment because of drugs. The hedonism and subsequent self destruction that results from drug use is painful and saddening to me. This film is an eye opener for alternative lifestyles, and is definitely not for the lighthearted.
