Setting sexual boundaries

Think about your sexual boundaries.

Important reasons why people use drugs during sex are that they feel more confident and experiment and dare to do more while under the influence. That can be incredibly liberating.

However, sex under the influence can also be a negative experience. Because of the high combined with peer pressure, you may choose to have sex that you feel bad about afterwards. By establishing exactly what you are looking for in sexual contact ahead of time, you increase the likelihood of things going the way you want them to. It also makes you less likely to perform sexual acts that you later feel uncomfortable with.
