Abstract:
Introduction: As emerging adults (age 19-24) have increased opportunities to have multiple sex partners, and many use alcohol or other drugs, it is possible that drug use may influence sexual risk behaviour. The subjective effects of 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) intoxication may lead to increased sexual risk behaviour. As public health nurses are mandated to reduce the risks associated with the non-medical use of substances and the incidence of STI/HIV, it is important to understand the possible link between MDMA use and risky sexual behaviour. Purpose: Phase one of this study explores themes around MDMA use and risky sexual behaviour among a sample of emerging adults who attend nightclubs. Data from the qualitative interviews will be used in the development of a quantitative questionnaire. Design: During phase one of this research in-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with seven participants. The interviews were analysed in order to explore themes related to MDMA use and risky sexual behaviour in the development of a questionnaire. Results: This poster presentation will examine emerging trends from the qualitative data analysis such as condom non-use, using ecstasy to feel loved, and polysubstance use. Challenges of recruiting a hidden population for qualitative interviews dealing with sensitive topics, lessons learned, and implications for phase two of the project will be discussed.
