Young Adults Using Alcohol, Drugs for Better Sex
Date:5/9/2008

Recreational use of stimulants a fixture of European nightlife, study says

FRIDAY, May 9 (HealthDay News) -- Many teens and young adults in Europe are drinking alcohol and taking drugs for sexual purposes, according to a survey of more than 1,300 people who are regular nightlife-goers.

The results showed that a third of males and a quarter of females aged 16 to 35 drink alcohol to increase their chances of sex, while cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis are used to enhance sexual arousal or prolong sex.

For example, those who'd been drunk in the previous four weeks were more likely to have had five or more sex partners, sex without a condom, and to have regretted sex after drink or drugs in the past year. Similar consequences were noted in those who'd used cannabis, cocaine or ecstasy.

Respondents who used alcohol, cannabis, cocaine or ecstasy before age 16 were much more likely to have had sex before that age. This was especially true for girls, who were nearly four times as likely to have had sex before the age of 16, if they drank alcohol or used cannabis before that age.

The findings were published in the journal BMC Public Health.

"Trends in recent decades have resulted in recreational drug use and binge drinking becoming routine features of European nightlife," lead author Mark Bellis, of Liverpool John Moores University, said in a prepared statement. "Millions
