A deadly dating game.
A boom in the popularity of gay dating Apps for smart phones has contributed to record high levels of HIV infection in Hong Kong, some Aids prevention workers believe. But is technology or poor sex education at the root of the epidemic? Simon Parry and Hazel Knowles report.
It takes only two or three taps on the screen of a smart phone before the picture of a bare-chested young man pops up. John is 25, he’s single, he’s looking for friends, dates and fun, he’s online now and he’s less than a mile away.
This is the new face of gay dating in Hong Kong. Male-only smart phone applications like Grindr that use global positioning technology to put homosexuals in touch have taken over from saunas and bars as the favored way for a new generation of gay men to source partners.
John’s profile is relatively tame. Others on Grindr are explicit, and make it clear precisely what the person within range is seeking and that in many cases he wants a fast, no-strings-attached sexual encounter.
Madonna ‘W.E.’ Premiere: Is Her Dress Lovely Or Too Loud?
The star looked like she got into a fight with too much tulle before stepping out on the red carpet — what did you think of her dress last night?
Madonna loves to bring drama to the red carpet, and all eyes were definitely on her on Jan. 23 in NYC, where the star turned up for the premiere of the film she directed, W.E.. While the bodice of her embroidered velvet Marchesa gown was gorgeous, the tulle sleeves were way too overpowering — it looked more like a costume!
Madonna can pull of practically everything, so seeing the star in something so dramatic definitely isn’t surprising — and she also has the confidence to walk out in this look without it taking her over, so I commend her for that — any other star would’ve been lost within this dress! That being said, this still wasn’t my fave get-up on Madonna.
