Could be Newsweek. As I said, it's been in a lot of the mainstream press. Whether it's a widespread phenomenon or just something that sells newspapers and magazines is another question...

There was an excellent and extensive article about this in the New Yorker a few weeks ago, which explored the effects of crystal meth on the gay community and on the sexual practices of gay men.

I think there's really good data to suggest that crystal meth is having a big effect on MSM and HIV/AIDS, as I said in the original post. I have my doubts about the whole "bug chaser" thing, though. I think MSM don't want to get infected, except for a very few. I think the reason crystal is such bad news is that it:

lowers inhibition
deadens pain
is addictive
is cheap

That is such a bad combo for sex, I think...
