"What with everyone's FEAR over AIDS, the gay men's scene is suffering except for a hearty few. [...] EAT FRESH FOOD and JERK OFF for a while, until we are on the other side. Tell your friends to stay away from doctors for a while. I hate the whole thing. It's like a government plot to curtail orgasms. I'm starting to feel interested in partner sex again and I'm sure not fond of monogamy."[New York], 1980s;
