ABSTRACT
The article reports on the existence of unsafe gay sex parties that target men of color in the U.S. The promoter of the Raw Dukes sex party in Harlem in New York in May 2006 banned safer sex, hoping to maximize his profits. Similar barebacking action is happening at private sex parties around the country all the time, a quick search on CraigsList yields dozens of listings at any given moment, but this sex party is different. The raw-sex party scene made headlines in May when a 24-year-old college-educated African American man announced that condoms would be banned at a party called Raw Dukes, which he was hosting at his Harlem apartment.
