Curriculum

In the period Fall 2018 to Spring 2022, Kristian Møller will be working on the project "Intimate media, medicalized sex – using HIV preventing medicine and recreational drugs". The project is funded by the AIDS Foundation of Denmark, the Independent Research Fund of Denmark, and The IT University. It is also part of the Research Project "Medicine Man" headed by Associate Professor Karen Hvidtfeldt. 

Project Description:

The rising availability of PrEP suggests a near future where “safer sex” among men who have sex with men (MSM) looks very different than today. With its introduction in the Danish welfare system, it will help improve their physical and mental health. But people are not entirely rational, and do not simply change their feelings and practices overnight. This project will examine PrEP use and how it is related to norms of “good sex” and “good health”: how are norms changing, and how might they even prevent change from happening? Gay culture is a drug culture, highly mediatized, and sex centered. Therefore, focus will be on chemsex as it intensifies these historical tendencies. In order to spread awareness about how good sex and health could look like in an age of PrEP, findings will be distributed among Danish health organisations, as well as chemsex and non-chemsex gay male publics.
