Information for participants

This project looks at bugchasers' experiences and feelings without judgement or shame. In doing so, this project wants to better understand bugchasing desires and challenge demonising and uninformed narratives in the media. 

If you have fantasised about HIV in any way, enjoyed bugchasing porn or felt attracted to HIV in some way, I'd like to hear from you. 

We will be conducting friendly, informal interviews where you can talk about your experiences, desires and feelings. 

You can contact me through Twitter or email bugchasingproject@manchester.ac.uk


I aim at maintaining the highest degree of confidentiality. All your recordings and interview material will use a pseudonym to conceal your identity from the public. 

This project was approved by the University of Manchester Research Ethics committee, reference number 2018-4849-6765
