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. 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 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. Other “party drugs” such as MDMA, mephedrone, and GHB are less associated with this term. It has been called an “epidemic” in the gay community.
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.
