According to a new documentary chronicling the dark underbelly of London’s gay scene, you can’t avoid propositions for chemsex in the city.
Or at least on Grindr, that is.
“Within four conversations [on Grindr] you’re going to be introduced to chems. Within eight you’re going to be introduced to injecting or slamming,” says an interviewee in the trailer.
The Vice Media-produced film, aptly titled Chemsex, follows the lives of men who have fallen in deep to the troubling drug culture. It’s a story of addiction, self-destruction, shame and, of course, lots of sex.
Doesn’t anybody go on coffee dates anymore?
Watch the disturbing trailer below:
“Vice has always endeavoured to explore underreported and complex issues that involve incredible characters and human stories. After vice.com first reported in 2013 on the unprecedented rise in intravenous drug use in London’s gay party scene, we felt that story needed to be explored further,” said Al Brown, Head of Video at Vice.
The film will be released in U.K. theatrical on December 4.
