It can be found as pills or as a powder, and it can be swallowed, snorted (inhaled through the nose) or injected. When you take amphetamine, your brain gets an increase in the synaptic activity of dopamine and noradrenaline. This gives you feelings of intensity, heightened energy and self-confidence. Amphetamine also speeds up your heart rate and gives you higher blood pressure. During the high, you often stop thinking about eating and sleeping, and get a higher sex drive and more energy to start with. If you use amphetamine often, the positive feelings will go away, and instead you will feel withdrawal symptoms and extreme tiredness. It can be very different how much amphetamine there is in the pills or the powder, and this can lead to unwanted overdoses. If you overdose, you risk collapsing or dying because of the effect on your heart and breathing. Amphetamine and alcohol together leads to worse health. If […]

Alcohol

  Alcohol is the most common drug in Sweden, and it is legal to use if you’re old enough. When used in moderation, alcohol can be nice and help create good times. But it is a bad idea to drink when you meet customers, because your judgment may get worse, and it is good to have control of the situation. Do not accept drinks from anyone, there is always a risk that someone has put something in the glass. Alcohol is a strong drug that kills many more people than all other drugs together. When you drink, alcohol reaches your brain in a few minutes, and it affects things like the central nervous system. At the start, being a little drunk can feel good. You can feel more free, and perhaps your feelings get more intense. But when you drink more, you lose control over both feelings and body. Your judgment and your energy get shaky. Being drunk makes you less sexually sensitive, and it can be difficult to get an erection or keep one. If you drink a lot of alcohol over a long time, it can lead to long-term impotence and a lower sex drive. Alcohol and medicine together is usually a bad idea. Read the information that comes with your medicine to find out how alcohol and medicine combined can affect your body – or search drugs.com or medicine.org.uk to find out.  Alcohol often makes it difficult to make good decisions, and this makes it a bad idea to combine alcohol with other […]

Sex & Drugs

  There are many different reasons why you might want to take drugs when you sell sex. Drugs make our senses numb, the limits of your body and mind can be stretched, and this can make you feel bad or worse. Apart from the fact that drugs are bad for your health, both legal drugs (such as alcohol) and illegal drugs affect your judgment. This means that when you have taken drugs, you are taking a higher risk when meeting a buyer. You may stretch your limits more than you really want to, or the buyer might take control and take advantage of the situation. There is also a risk of negative physical consecquences – for example, poppers are sometimes used when having anal sex or fisting, and the drug can lead to your not feeling that something is breaking, because the pain comes later on and not directly. If you feel like you have to drink alcohol or take drugs when selling sex, just to get through a meeting or handle your feelings after a meeting, this is an alarm signal that you are doing something that is not good for you. Often, you will already know this. Some people sell sex to pay for alcohol or drugs. It is your decision if you want to stop selling sex or stop taking drugs. Only you can decide what is best and most realistic for you. If you feel like you have a problem with alcohol or drugs, it can be a good idea to […]

Poppers

  Poppers is another name for alkyl nitrites, usually amyl nitrite, which has been used to help people with angina (heart problems) since inhaling it widens the blood vessels quickly. Today, amyl nitrite is no longer used in Swedish health care, but people still use poppers to intensify feelings on the dance floor or during sex. When you inhale poppers, some types of muscles relax, which makes the blood vessels widen, and your blood pressure drops quickly. Some feel that this makes anal penetration easier, because it relaxes the inner sphincter and parts of the vagina. Your heart also beats faster, and your brain gets more oxygen-rich blood, which leads to a high that lasts for a few minutes. Some people feel euphoria, and can have more intense orgasms. Poppers are classed as a medical product in Sweden, which means that the Medicinal Products Act has rules for selling and importing and so on. It is very dangerous, possibly fatal, to combine poppers with Viagra or other drugs that help with potency. You should not use poppers if you have heart problems or low blood pressure, if you faint easily or if you take medicine to lower your blood pressure. Never ever drink poppers, and do not let it touch your skin.  Side effects Common side effects when using poppers are headaches and getting dizzy. Some people lose their erection. If you use poppers for a long time and let it touch your skin, the membranes inside your nose get damaged. You can also suffer chemical […]
