A Gay Sex Club Tour and a Chat With a Kinkster at AIDS 2018

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, has a reputation as a welcoming home to all manner of sexual tastes. So during my time here for the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) I could not resist paying a visit to the city's most infamous gay sex venue, Club Church, for a personal tour of most every dark nook and cranny -- yes, right here in my new video report! -- and a really candid conversation with manager Anne Rodermond.

Rodermond's point of view will either have you applauding or gasping in concerned indignation. He doesn’t shy away from discussing the preferences of his customers and his part in it as the club manager.

Meanwhile, in a separate new video, self-described "Amsterdam Kinkster" Chris Vincent stops by the club to explain how his newfound love of leather and fetish sex has actually provided him more safety from HIV transmission. As it turns out, our largest sexual organ is, in fact, between our ears.

Coming up: I head to another sex venue to discuss a spirited community campaign to rid Amsterdam of hepatitis C, and I pay a visit to the colorful Global Village of AIDS 2018.

Thanks for watching!

Be sure to check out all of Mark S. King's videos from AIDS 2018.
