What drugs are we talking about?
Now in the world a popular phenomenon called chemsex (chemsex) is having sex while intoxicated. To enhance the effect of sex, euphoretics (mephedrone, ecstasy), opiates (heroin, methadone), psychostimulants (cocaine, amphetamine), hallucinogens (LSD, psilocybin) or cannabinoids (marijuana) are usually used. Sometimes different drugs are mixed to get unpredictable results.
Health Education Research notes that 28% of Britons aged 16 to 22 use marijuana to increase pleasure, 63% use ecstasy, 54% use cocaine, 32% use amphetamine and 26% use LSD. But it should be remembered that these drugs are illegal, that is, many people do not advertise their use for statistics.
How different drugs affect sex
In different cases, drugs cause individual characteristics. But most often, they significantly enhance the already pleasant effect - in the process, a person is almost at the peak of euphoria. Moreover, there is a feeling of time stopping and it seems to people that there is more time for pleasure. After taking some drugs, orgasm can be achieved faster. Although there are common signs, most often when taking different drugs, the effect is very different. We consider the action of the most popular of them.
Increases libido and increases the number of orgasms. Pharmacological Research reports that under the influence of marijuana, people feel the effect of orgasm longer and in general it seems to them that sex lasts longer (due to the fact that marijuana, in principle, seems to slow down everything that happens around). It also enhances the body's reaction to touch, all sensations are exacerbated. Marijuana activates the brain's cannabinoid receptors (which are responsible for sexual pleasure), which reduces feelings of anxiety (which can make the experience less enjoyable). It is usually used if they want to make the process longer, more relaxed and calm.
Ecstasy makes people feel as one. When used in large groups, everyone begins to feel empathy, closeness and attraction to each other (both on the bodily and psychological levels). But when it comes to physical contact, ecstasy can be disappointing. When it is used, potency decreases - most likely, none of the partners will be able to achieve orgasm, and if it does, then probably the woman. This drug attracts others - people enjoy the tactile sensations and incredible closeness that occurs almost on a subconscious level. They say about ecstasy: “I don’t remember sex, but the intimacy of the process”, “you and your partner seem to create your own galaxy from your feelings and emotions.” Most often, the drug provokes love and tender impulses in the form of kisses and hugs.
The American Journal of Psychiatry reports that cocaine increases sexual desire. Again, the process seems long and incredibly pleasurable, but orgasm is hard to come by. The fact is that when using cocaine, an excessive amount of testosterone is formed in the body, which can result in an uncontrollable desire. A person experiences more vivid bodily sensations and pleasure from touch. Since cocaine has a stimulating effect on the human nervous system, there is a feeling of a large amount of energy and the elimination of fatigue. In other words, a person is able to give everything to the fullest without feeling any discomfort.
By itself, the drug has a strong impact on the human psyche and causes severe depression after its effect is over. It is usually taken to elevate mood and activity, and the result is anxiety, paranoia and depression. When a substance enters the bloodstream, the balance of hormones fails, which must constantly be in balance. The effect of amphetamine on the male genital organs is compared with the effect of cold water. In addition, it becomes more difficult for men to complete the process, as the whole body is under stress. When using amphetamines, people are more prone to extreme challenges - they seem to be able to complete any task at all. And after sex, there will usually not be a relaxed state, a person will want more and more.
It is methamphetamine hydrochloride (crystal methamphetamine). It is one of the most powerful psychostimulants. It causes great passion and a great desire for intimate contact. In most cases, thoughts and sex occupy the entire inner space of a person, pushing all other concerns to another plane. He can have sex for hours on end without feeling tired.
The drug causes artificial passion, vivid emotions and very rapid excitement. Often, under the influence of heroin, it seems that “this is it,” and ordinary sex is inferior. The process itself resembles a marathon - men become very hardy. However, it will still be difficult to come to a logical conclusion. By the way, this also applies to women.
Hallucinogens affect the body's serotonin system, which is responsible for pleasure. But still, at the same time, a person is completely immersed in himself and reacts poorly to external stimuli. It's not the best sex drug, but the process itself can feel very exciting and interesting. Since the drug has a strong effect on the human psyche, he is likely to be distracted from sex - pictures and hallucinations are more interesting. Trying to understand the images that appear before the eyes, a person can simply simply forget what he is doing. Visions completely capture him, suppressing the body's need for excitement.
Long-term drug use negatively affects the health of the body and the reproductive system in particular. Cocaine can cause erectile dysfunction, that is, with frequent use, an erection can disappear even when sober. In the case of ecstasy, the result is the same - the sexual function of men weakens. The Journal of Sexual Medicine reports that 36.4% of young people who use drugs experience erection problems. Women, in turn, due to drugs may experience difficulties in real life with getting an orgasm. In addition, do not forget that drugs are highly addictive. They greatly affect the immune system, which increases the chance of contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Sex under drugs is always an additional burden for the body, causes its exhaustion, worsens health in general and, as a result, reduces the same libido.
