Sexualized drug use (chemsex and methamphetamine) and men who have sex with men


Key take-home messages
  • Chemsex and methamphetamine use are associated with sexual health-related harms among men who have sex with men.
  • Methamphetamine is the most commonly reported drug in sexualized drug use among men who have sex with men.
  • Several interventions — including motivational interviewing and contingency management — report concurrent, efficacious effects on both methamphetamine use and sexual health-related outcomes among men who have sex with men.
  • Considering the context of sexualized drug use may lead to a better understanding of how methamphetamine is used as a social and sexual resource among men who have sex with men; more qualitative research exploring the social-sexual context is needed.
