In recent months, community activists and researchers have focused on the role of crystal meth, also known as "crystal" or "meth." The drug heightens sensations of all types, making it a popular drug to take before intercourse. According to researchers, the drug seems to be especially popular among men who engage in unprotected anal sex, Valdisseri said.

Bad authors. So does taking meth increase the occurance of risky sex, or are people incautious enough to take illegal drugs more likely to be incautious in sex as well?

I had trouble seeing the meth/STD connection, myself. Viagra is probably more likely to increase sexual frequency. Increasing sensitivity doesn't do much for recycling time. But then again, anything that feeds the WOD paranoia will be trotted out sooner or later.

Or could it be people incautious enough to engage in anonymous sex are more likely to be incautious to take illegal drugs as well?

Especially drugs that heighten sensations?

Now you are just blaming the victim. They can't help these desires.
