It is not clear how the law applies to oral sex with or without a condom. Never share equipment, not even with your sex partner. The web offers the promise of more sex without the hassle of booze and smoke. Use your own drug equipment such as pipes, bills, straws, cookers, water, alcohol swabs every time.

But sooner or later, it seems, everyone tries the Internet, and the pattern, according to David Halpern, vice president and chief operating officer for M4M4Sex, is the same in every city.
