“Chems enabled me to push my limits”
“Ecstasy lowered the threshold for me to engage in sexual contact, to be intimate. I later moved on to crystal meth, coke—often in combination with ketamine—and GHB. Those were the four most exciting drugs for me.
They enabled me to push my limits. The drugs made me want more extreme sex so that the person I had sex with would find me special.”
