Many of us have taken drugs such as alcohol before having sex, to help us feel relaxed and more confident.

More recently, however, an increasing number of men have started using certain drugs in their sex life. Drugs that can make you feel less inhibited, more aroused and focused on the sex you are having. In recent years we have started to refer to this as ChemSex.

In this section, you can find out more about ChemSex, including how to maximise the enjoyment they bring while minimising the risks involved. You can also find out how to remain in control while using drugs or stop using drugs altogether. SX offer dedicated ChemSex support and work closely with colleagues throughout the country ensuring men stay in control of the sex they have and the drugs that they use.

We want everyone to have pleasurable and consensual sex, with the least harm regardless of drugs being used.
