Event Details

Sex & Drugs is a well-known topic – because sex under the influence of a wide variety of substances undoubtedly contains many stimuli, reasons, stories and possibilities.

But here we look behind the scenes: What consequences and challenges can arise? Why is it so important to be aware of certain risks?

The short presentation gives an overview and explains what the term chemsex actually means.

    Birgit Leichsenring

    Birgit Leichsenring is a microbiologist working since many years in the field of virology, especially with HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections.

    As a science communicator in this field of sexual health, she wants to raise awareness towards specific topics and their scientific background.

    Nevertheless, she does not define sexual health as a purely biomedical issue, as often the psychosocial context plays a much larger role.

    Professionally and privately, she therefore feels particularly located in queer activism.
