    Rise In Chemsex Popularity Prompts Major Health Warning

    Having sex under the influence of illegal drugs - known as “chemsex” - should become a public health priority, researchers have said. There has been a sharp rise in the use of drugs like GHB, GBL and crystal meth to enhance sexual pleasure and reduce inhibitions - but may put users at risk, they warned. Experts writing in the British Medical Journal say that, in these groups, unprotected sex is the norm and users of the drugs report an average of five sexual partners per session.  Some drug users describe memory loss and not sleeping or eating for days, while injecting drugs along with chemsex creates “a perfect storm” for transmission of HIV and hepatitis C.  They also warn of serious mental health problems - but many drug users are afraid to access health services. “Many barriers exist to chemsex drug users accessing services, including the shame and stigma often associated with drug use and ignorance of available services,” the team behind the research - specialists in sexual health and substance abuse in London, explained.
