NYU safe sex study uses Boy Butter Fresca H20 for 600 men

Boy Butter Fresca H20, the mildly cooling water based formula is chosen as the personal lubricant to be used in a 600 person safe sex study for Center for Health, Identity, Behavior, and Prevention Studies (CHIBPS) at New York University. 

CHIBPS is nationally-recognized research center that studies sexual health among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men.  Currently we have two ongoing research studies.  Project 18 focuses on sexual risk-taking, substance use, and mental health burden among young men. Six hundred participants are enrolled in the study and they are to come into the NYC research center every six months over the course of three years.  In addition to completing surveys, each participant is also given a HIV test with comprehensive pre- and post-test counseling at each assessment.  Our other research study, Project Gold, assesses lifetime trauma as it relates to sexual health and substance use among HIV-positive men over fifty years old.  In addition, CHIBPS staff members are actively engaged in community outreach throughout the New York metropolitan area; we attend gay bars, pride events, parks, schools, and other venues in order to promote our work and the work of New York’s LGBT community.

In order to reduce the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections among men who have sex with men, we provide study participants and people we meet via outreach with condoms, lube (Boy Butter Fresca H20), and educational information on safe sex.  Therefore, we would be extremely grateful for a lube donation from your company.
