Drugs & Sex

Drug use can impair cognitive judgement and lower inhibitions, making a person more susceptible to engaging in risky sexual behaviour. The effects of different drugs on sexual behaviour and health will vary, however, in high doses; all drugs are linked to loss of sexual desire. Drug use can also lead to arousal and orgasmic disorders.

Caritas Malta offers drug rehabilitation programmes, to offer support and treatment to those wishing to stop using drugs. More information can be found here:
