Bug Chasers: People Who Hunt Down HIV Positive People In Order To Infect Themselves With The Virus

April 3, 2014 | 15 Comments » | Topics: main


This is pretty fucked up….Bugchasing is a slang term for the practice of pursuing sexual intercourse with HIV-infected individuals in order to contract HIV. Individuals engaged in this activity are referred to as bugchasers.

Bugchasers seek sexual partners who are HIV positive for the purpose of having unprotected sex and becoming HIV positive; giftgivers are HIV positive individuals who comply with the bugchaser’s efforts to become infected with HIV.

Bugchasers indicate various reasons for this activity. Some bugchasers engage in the activity for the excitement inherent in pursuing such a dangerous activity, but do not implicitly desire to contract HIV. Some researchers suggest that the behavior may stem from a “resistance to dominant heterosexual norms and mores” due to a defensive response by gay men to repudiate stigmatization and rejection by society.

Some people consider bugchasing “intensely erotic” and the act of being infected as the “ultimate taboo, the most extreme sex act left.”A number of people who are HIV negative and in a relationship with someone who is HIV positive seek infection as a way to remain in the relationship, particularly when the HIV positive partner may wish to break up to avoid infecting the HIV negative partner.

Some contend that this behaviour stems from feelings of inevitability towards HIV among the gay community and the empowerment of choosing when to contract the virus.Others have suggested that some people who feel lonely desire the nurturing community that supports people with AIDS

Here’s the documentary The Gift if you wanted to delve deeper ino the rabbit hole.

    I read about this phenomenon some time ago and one of the primary reasons that the men interviewed in the article actively sought HIV was because they saw it as inevitable that they would eventually get it. They wanted to, as they put it, get it over with and not have to worry about it anymore. Consider that information to be very dated, though a documentary on the matter from 10 years ago is pretty dated as well. Things may be very different now.

    I have reached the end of the internet. I will now turn off my computer. This has made me lose faith in humanity more than any horror story you can come up with.

    Most research done indicates that this is a mental fetish over the idea of contracting AIDS (some people fetishize what scares them) but of the few thousands of people who identify as ‘bug chasers’, extremely few go through with it.

    I guess its like, getting off to pron about a guy banging your wife, but in reality that’s the last thing you ever want. ‘Bug chasers’ are mostly dudes writing kinky erotica/shrugs
