MDMA AND ECSTASY In the Gay Party Scene
A drug that already back in the 80ies became very popular throughout the gay scene is MDMA (also called “Molly” – powder form) and Ecstasy (also called “E” – the pill form).
Despite the fact that numerous boys ‘n’ girls take the drug, its quality has diminished essentially in the previous 2 decades.
Although MDMA / Ecstasy is far less destructive or addictive than many other drugs used in the gay scene (including cocain, speed (amphetamines) and GHB (“liquid ecstasy”)) it also does have it’s side effects. As for instance, after “every high there comes a low” – This doesn’t happen to everyone but a lot of people experience an emotional low the day afterwards. Also MDMA / ecstasy can make it hard to get a hard-on. To solve this problem, some people use a mix of Viagra and Ecstasy (called “Sextacy”). But watch out: This in itself has potentially dangerous health risks.
So how does MDMA and Ecstasy feel like? It usually causes users to feel more intense and experience stronger feelings of passion, love and excitement. Some would say, the most dangerous thing that is likely to happen to you when you are high on ecstasy is hugging your friend for too long.
However, a severe overdoes killed people already. In fact, most deaths associated with ecstasy involved alcohol.
That’s why it is strongly advised not to take ecstasy with alcohol as it can mask your drunken state and you will end up being completely dehydrated.
Ecstasy also leads to dangerous, life-threatening reactions when used alongside GHB / GBL and crystal meth. You should also avoid the drug if you’re on treatment for HIV or using anti-depressants.
Possession of the drug has been termed illegal and could land an unlimited fine or up to seven years in prison. Please don’t take this drug if:
– You have a history of depression or mental illness (it can trigger any of these)
– You have high blood pressure (it raises blood pressure levels in itself)
– You have heart/kidney/liver problems
– You have ever had a stroke
– You have glaucoma
