PnP (Party and Play)
A glossary of sexual terms
What is the difference between PNP and NPN?
PnP known as Party and Play and also called chemsex or wired play is the consumption of drugs to facilitate or enhance sexual activity. Sociologically, it refers to a subculture of recreational drug users who engage in high-risk sexual activities under the influence of drugs within sub-groups. The drug of choice is typically methamphetamine , known as crystal meth , tina or T ,  but other drugs are also used, such as mephedrone , GHB , GBL ,  and alkyl nitrites known as poppers.
From the sexual revolution of the 's through to the present day, drugs and sex have been entwined. This is represented across a broader swathe of society, but a recent subsection within the gay men's community is chemsex. While chemsex is appearing with growing frequency in the media, it is important to note that the phenomena of chemsex is not the norm for most gay men in Britain, even in major urban areas like London where chemsex practice is relatively prevalent. The result or aim is sex that can sometimes last for several days.
