(Scroll down for video) Doctors are warning people against attending sex roulette parties.

These types of parties are becoming increasingly popular, doctors said.

The parties involve strangers having sex with one another. One person who is HIV positive, is also in attendance, but nobody knows who's the one with the virus.

People seem to enjoy the “thrill” of not knowing whether they will be infected with HIV or not.

Doctors in Spain, noted that people who go to these sex parties and have intercourse with random people often take anti-viral drugs to reduce the risk of getting infected.

Dr. Josep Mallolas of Hospital Clinic Barcelona, said that these parties show that people have “lost respect” for HIV.

Psychosexual therapist Kate Morley said that “partygoers think the higher the risk the stronger the thrill and the intense high is as you combine orgasm with high adrenaline.”
