Sextasy refers to a recently popular practice among men where they take Viagra and Ecstasy at the same time. The goal is to increase the level and duration of Ecstasy's euphoric effects. Improving one's sexual performance and enjoyment does not always factor into these men's motivations in taking this drug combo. The practice came about because of the easy availability of Viagra and Ecstasy.
More About Sextasy
The term sextasy can be misleading. While taking the Viagra and Ecstasy drug combo can lead one to experience euphoria, it may also pose serious health risks. Medical professionals warn against the “serotonin syndrome” which refers to the excessive build-up of serotonin in the body. Serotonin, popularly called the “happy hormone,” is dangerous at excessive levels. It can cause hallucinations, disorientation, and tremors. Extreme cases involve seizures, coma, and even death. Remember that Ecstasy is an illegal drug for a good reason. Likewise, Viagra was developed to help men please their sex partners, and not for anything else.
