Chemsex, Party and Play.

The definition of Chemsex is:

Party and play (PNP and PnP) is a phenomenon and subculture of recreational drug users who engage in sexual activities with one another, either one-on-one or in groups.[1] It is also called chemical session, chem session, chemsex and partying.

The term is often but not always used by and associated with gay men[1] and other men who have sex with men (MSM). The drug of choice is typically methamphetamine, known as crystal or tina in the gay community.[citation needed] Other “party drugs” such as MDMA, mephedrone, and GHB are less associated with this term.[2] It has been called an “epidemic” in the gay community.[1]image

this afternoon being reading all the latest news and came upon an article about Chemsex.

Not sure what my opinion is on this. I am a gay man and do relate to this as its becoming an issue for our community. Or is it that a “new” issue?

Aids HIV, rocked the world, the gay community. Fast forward to present. Charlie Sheen. So it’s not just a gay disease. So this new Chemsex is very real. It’s also very sad, and a reflection of single gay men, and maybe gay men in general.  Spring Break in the States, is that not also just a drug or alcohol fueled orgy?

Yes these gay sex parties are in the news again. Maybe we should think about this and people who are battling addictions.  Ivan.
