Group sex participants will be the target of a new safety campaign by ACON at next week’s Sleaze Ball.

Roving volunteers at the event will hand out play packs to men who look as though they might be headed to sex parties. The packs will contain bottles of lube, condoms, gloves and emergency instructions.

Group sex had always occurred after big dance parties, ACON’s education manager Brad Gray said, and he believed the practice was on the rise.

We’re looking for guys going home for group sex, and we know that’s always happened, but we have a feeling it’s increasing, Gray said.

What we want to do is encourage those guys going home for sex with lots of other guys to be safe about doing it.

The roving volunteers will be known as TOM (Three Or More) Boys and will be similar to ACON’s Safe Sex Sluts.

The TOM Boys are basically hardcore Safe Sex Sluts, Gray said.

We’ve had Safe Sex Sluts for years now and they do a fantastic job reminding people about safe sex at the beginning of a party.

What we’re looking for the TOM Boys to do though is target people more directly, especially guys going for some post-party sex fun with more than one person.

The volunteers will approach groups of men who appear to be getting together around the outside of the dancefloor and in outdoor areas. Between four and six TOM Boys will be working from 6am to 8am -“ the final two hours of the party. However, the packs will be available all night at the ACON stall.

The packs will also contain information about safely setting up a sex party in the home and an emergency contact sign, which Gray said was incredibly important.

We know lots of guys who go home for sex parties use [the drug] G when they do it. That’s a fact. And there have been quite a number of reports of people collapsing from G at home.

So we’ve included emergency contact signs so whoever is hosting the party can stick this sign up with their phone number and address on it, so if the host is not capable of or not available to call emergency services, everyone else at the party will have the home’s details.

The safety drive is part of ACON’s sex pigs campaign which began a few months ago. According to ACON, sex pigs are men who have group sex, visit sex-on-premises venues, take drugs before having sex and are often into fisting and water sports, all things which place them at a higher risk of STIs and HIV.
