WEBINAR: The experiences of couples who take MDMA together

Past event

Wednesday January 20th, 2021

Description: ‘We were just partying and then it turned into a therapy session’: The experiences of couples who take MDMA together. Delivered by Dr Katie Anderson.

MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine or ‘ecstasy’) is well-known for its prosocial effects however, there has been very limited research examining MDMA’s impact on couple relationships. Qualitative couple interviews (n=20) and written diaries (n=8) were analysed using a thematic approach. Three overarching themes emerged: an ‘emotional bubble’; new subjectivities; and the construction of boundaries. Implications for drug theory and practice are discussed.

Chair: Dr Karen Duke
