Getting High And Having Sex Is A Bad Combination

November 9, 2015

There are plenty of things that don’t mix well with sex. For example, hearing the neighbours screaming at each other while you’re trying to expertly flip your hot and sexy lady over so you can take her from behind? Huge turn off. Having to rush through it before your appointment later on? That’s pretty much a guarantee that you won’t enjoy it as much as you should.

Now for a while most of us have suspected that having sex while on drugs is a bad idea. It just seems to spell disaster, despite the fact that there are plenty of people out there swearing that it can feel even better and more intense when they are getting high. Now we have had confirmation that taking drugs and having sex is actually a potentially lethal combination.

We take a look at just what this “lethal combination” might mean, and why getting high and having sex is such a bad combination.


There are plenty of people out there willing to risk it for an amazing and intense orgasm, and taking drugs is just one way of doing it. However, having sex while under the influence of illegal drugs seems to be on the rise, and is fast becoming a problem.

Better known as “chemsex“, people are taking drugs in order to enhance the pleasure they get from sex, and despite the fact that many of the drugs they take to do this are illegal, they keep doing it. They want to experience the best sex that they can, and this seems, to many, to be the best way to do it. However, researchers believe that chemsex should now be a priority for health officials.

The drugs, such as crystal meth, GBL, and GHB, are often used to reduce your inhibitions, meaning you can enjoy sex without worrying about the things that usually hold you back. You can simply enjoy sex without the baggage getting in the way of it.

They are also thought to enhance the pleasure that you feel during sex, which means that you are much more likely to be satisfied with your sex life and you will be much more eager to jump into bed with others when the time comes, all thanks to these illegal drugs.

Risks of STIs and STDs

Of course, often with a lack of inhibitions comes a lack of thought. We tend to forget the little details that matter the most, such as how much our partner is enjoying the sex instead of focusing entirely on our own sexual needs.

Another big thing that tends to get forgotten is safe sex. We get to a point where we say “fuck it” and go without, simply because getting up to pull the condom wrapper out of the packet and then slide it onto the cock is too much effort. We want sex and we want it now.

This need for instant gratification, where we simply cannot wait, puts our sexual health at risk. Not wearing a condom means that our chances of catching an STI or an STD shoot through the roof, but because we are high on drugs at the time we don’t care.

It has actually been reported that we are currently experiencing a rise in the number of people getting tested positive for an STI or an STD, which suggests that more people are taking risks. Definitely not a good sign, especially when it is all because people want to have some intense sex.

The other health risks

You might think that the risk of catching an STI or an STD is enough to put people off the idea of taking drugs and having sex, but it isn’t. People are still doing it. As an expert on the subject said, “these drugs are often used in combination to facilitate sexual sessions lasting several hours or days with multiple sexual partners.”

This is where the risks of spreading diseases comes in, but they have also noticed some unusual side effects. The people doing this have found that they are actually losing days, in that they can’t remember eating or sleeping. This can last up to 72 hours, and you can imagine how terrifying that can be for the users.

Many of the drugs also cause a number of other side effects, such as increasing your heart rate and your blood pressure. That, combined with the fact that some of them also work as a mild anaesthetic, is a recipe for disaster… which is why health professionals are advising that people stay away from the drugs when they want to have sex and they find a better alternative.

Better alternatives

Of course, it is easy for the health professionals to say, but they don’t then go on to talk about the better alternatives that are out there… so if you have been taking the risk and taking drugs so you can have more intense sex, what can you do instead?

For many, it all comes down to the foreplay. Far too often we rush into sex, which is something that even those getting high will find. They jump straight into bed without really giving a second thought to the fun that comes beforehand.

If you really want to make the sex session more intense, concentrate on the foreplay. Take it in turns to get each other as close to orgasm as you can with just your hands and mouth. When they are close, stop and swap. When you both do eventually get your orgasms, they will be so intense that you will remember them for a long time to come.
