This workshop will explore what it we can do to prevent ourselves from not only HIV but the other sexually transmitted infections we often ignored.

Sexually Transmitted Infections(STIs) Workshop

Think you know all the Sexually Transmitted Infections(STIs)? How does it spread ? The symptoms? The stages for infections? The treatments and some even have vaccination to prevent you from getting them?

STIs workshop

 


gayhealth.sg partnered with DSC Clinic on November 27, 2014 for our MSM volunteers and their friends. The workshop was very informative for the participants and many left with a different view of how easily the infections can be transmitted. The feedbacks were positives and some even shared on Facebook about what they had learnt.

“Attended a fruitful session on STDs. It’s very interesting to have a Doctor speaker and explain in more details on STD. Two types mainly, the viruses like herpes 2 and warts which will stay in our body even when symptoms are gone and bacteria type which covers the rest which can be cured. But that doesn’t mean it won’t come back, if u have even a deep kissing of mouth to mouth, you will still get syphilis! So get a regular partner(s) and reduce the risk. Even precum has viruses… Argh.. And your listerene doesn’t blast your mouth super clean after either. Know your risk, play your part.” – R.E

A Good Handjob

A Good “Hand Job” is Hard to Find

I remember a very good friend who will regularly caters to all my needs. He would often know exactly when my body starts craving for his touch, even when there is a lack of verbal communication. He knew where and how to get a respond from my body, simply by touching me.

He is the only guy I know who gained great satisfaction from watching another person moan out in pleasure or scream out “oh my f-ing god” when he rolled his oiled palms on their naked back. If you thought I was talking about something else; then, sorry to disappoint you, but I was talking about getting a good massage.

A good masseuse is hard to find, yet receiving a good massage is one of the richest, intimate, human connection two people can share. Often we forget how another person’s hands can relief us from the stress in our body.

So, we conducted a massage workshop last Thursday (7 Aug 2014) and 16 turned up for this unique, kinky yet safe event. Participants were given a short crash course on simple massage techniques and were sent off in pairs , so they could practice on their partner.

It was very interesting to observe how (with much shyness and giggling) as the group started to introduce themselves, and their body to their partner. Yet once the lights were dimmed, the room went silent, and every one focused on delivering the best they could. Towards the end, everyone was relaxed, and comfortable with themselves and their body to mingle and share their experiences with the group and trainer. If you missed this workshop, be sure to connect with our FacebookTwitter or bookmark gayhealth.sg and receive updates for future workshops.


 Here are testimonials from the participants:

“Thank you for initiating and leading this workshop. It was a great learning experience. I found it very well conducted, engaging, and enriching. I’ll definitely apply what I learned there. Looking forward to the next workshops”

Zaki

“The trainer’s candor and professionalism made it easy for us to let go of our inhibitions, and I learned a lot about myself- such as that I’m pretty good at giving massages, it seems. :)”

And

“I feel certain that these new skills will stop my boyfriend from cheating on me.”

Relationship Series #3

He’s not my daddy, He’s not son – Intergenerational Relationship

Intergenerational

 

When we see a couple who doesn’t fit into our “normal” standard of a couple, we seem to questions about their power dynamic and how often the younger men are being taking advantage of by the more matured men.  Some men do seek out other that are not the same age as them for many reasons i.e. financial assistance, companionship, knowledge and advice on life/career, etc.  Whatever the age gap, there needs to be a discussion about age of consent, sexual dynamic when negotiating safer sex for both men and proving the validity of the relationship itself.

Relationship Series #4

“My Heart Will Go On” – Coping with breakups and separation

 

It is never easy for anyone who is going through a breakup when the separating decision was not theirs to make. No one said that breaking up is easy especially when you are on the receiving end. How do we tell ourselves that life will go on when we are lost and alone? This workshop will help us understand the coping mechanisms that we all have deep down inside. How can we train ourselves to understand the signs so that we can be more aware of our peers when they are facing similar situations? All new beginning will start somewhere, but we all must find our paths to recovery and carry on. [/av_one_half]

My 3some confession:

 

In my early 20 something I thought life was going well for me, my body was taking form, my college year was almost done and as an openly gay man, I thought I had it all. I would frequent the bars and clubs on a weekly basis looking for relationship where it would often end up with just random hook ups.

I would regularly have one night stands without any commitments for a relationship, until one day they came along. This couple in their early 30’s spoke to me in a club and later brought me back to their place for drinks and of course sex. I stayed till the next day and realized that I was sleeping in between them with their arms wrapped mine. When I woke up one of the guy rolled over to hug me and gently kissed me on my cheek which we end up having sex again.

We got up to shower together, ate breakfast together and went for coffee together. I ended up hanging out with them the whole Sunday and stayed over for dinner. As I left the house, I felt warm, “love” and excitement filled with anticipation of meeting them again.  For five months I was with them every weekend as if they were my part time boyfriends and then something happened.  I wasn’t being included anymore with their plans or being asked to visit them at their place.

The communication went quiet and I felt as the world had stopped. I wanted answers but being young then I blamed myself for not being good enough. It took me a long time to understand the complexity of an open relationship. What two people in the relationship discussed about and what was negotiated and sometime it doesn’t include you in the conversation can be frustrating and upsetting.

I have learnt now that it is much more complicated for any couple who are in a long term relationship where sex seems to slowly diminish. I too understand the situation of that couple I met in the earlier part of my life because I am also in that situation now.

In my long term relationship, I’ve been wondering what makes my relationship last this long and what makes me want to go further?  There are many things to learn on how to maintain or keep a long term relationship but it was not taught to me so I would have to learn it as it happened.  I can tell you now that  7 years there are questions that was easily can be answered alone and some still need both of us to answers together.

There are so many questions that a couple or individuals would ask when they’re in a long term relationship. Relationship is not always about sex, but the journey both take together and that could include sex. We will constantly challenge each other but if your relationship is worth keeping then the journey will be fun and fulfilling.


We often see many couples who are happy with their relationships and lasting for a very long time. How do they maintain this type of relationship especially when most of the guys you know can’t even hold down a relationship? What is the secret if there is any for us to learn and explore. Relationship is one of the hardest things in life because you are sharing your life with by compromising your freedom to be with that person. How communication plays out between the two people to navigate around HIV/STIs is also a very important matter.

This workshop is for people who are interested in discussing and exploring what a healthy relationship looks like through different exercises by practicing communication skills whether it is a monogamous or polygamous relationship.
