From condoms to PrEP – what does ‘safe sex’ mean today?
Martin Holt from the University of New South Wales gave a lecture in Sydney last week on the notion of ‘safe sex’ from its creation in the eighties, to what it means today.
Holt thinks men’s awareness and understanding of the new prevention methods such as PrEP has developed rapidly, but history suggests that people may continue to define safe sex as condom use for a long time to come.
