Improve your sex life by getting that burning question answered by one of the world's foremost experts on sex, Dr. Debby Herbenick of Indiana University's Kinsey Institute. Submit anonymously here!My lady wants to try sex on MDMA, but I’ve heard guys can have performance problems with this one. Is there any science to back that up? Has there been much research in the area of sex and drugs?

Sarah: If you guys ever have a dinner party, I want to be invited. Here’s what I know about sex on ecstasy from anecdotal evidence (I myself, sadly, haven’t had any first hand): guys have trouble finishing, and while the touchin’ and rubbin’ parts are fun, it doesn’t lead to satisfying sex for either party. This was one of the drugs used in couples therapy before it was criminalized, though, so it still might be an awesome experience for building intimacy and generally enjoying each other’s physical company. The trouble, of course, as with all illegal drugs, is finding something that isn’t mixed with something dangerous, as many street drugs often are. However, hypothetically, if a person were seeking out synthetic illegal drugs, my advice follows a pattern I discovered in college: do not seek out the man in the knit hat and oversized Chilean poncho. Find the nerd in the lab coat with a lot of Tim Leary and Milan Kundera books. He knows.

Debby: There’s not a lot of research on sex and illegal drugs (after all, scientists don’t usually have the ability to procure illegal recreational drugs for research purposes that could help them conduct controlled experimental trials). But yes - there are endless anecdotal reports of MDMA/ecstasy use and erectile difficulties. For a small overview of research on sexual function and recreation drug use, check out the book The Science of Orgasm.
