ABSTRACT Entre los adolescentes el consumo de alcohol y otras drogas está frecuentemente vinculado al contexto recreativo nocturno, al igual que la búsqueda y experimentación en sexualidad. Cada una de las sustancias tiene efectos en el comportamiento, en la experiencia sexual y en las consecuencias. Aquí se explora cómo experimentan los adolescentes españoles la relación y el rol que ocupan las drogas en la experimentación de la sexualidad en estos contextos recreativos. Se ha utilizado metodología cualitativa para explorar la relación entre sexualidad y drogas en 100 jóvenes de ambos sexos de 4 ciudades españolas, que les gustase salir los fines de semana y con experiencia sexual. Se les localiza mediante el sistema de bola de nieve y se les hace entrevistas en profundidad. Los resultados confirman la importancia que adquiere el contexto recreativo nocturno en la búsqueda y experiencia sexual entre los jóvenes. Los jóvenes tienen una idea muy precisa de cómo cada una de ellas funciona en relación con distintas prácticas sexuales. El alcohol es con mucho la más popular y la que tiene más ventajas en las cuatro prácticas sexuales analizadas (facilitar el encuentro sexual, involucrarse en experiencias más arriesgadas, aumentar la excitación y prolongar la relación sexual), excepto para prolongar la relación que se prefiere la cocaína. El cannabis no gusta porque relaja y no hay interés en el éxtasis por sus efectos sobre la sexualidad. A las mujeres les gusta mucho el alcohol para experiencias arriesgadas, aumentar sensaciones y prolongar sexo y utilizarían menos cocaína.

    ABSTRACT: This paper aims to compare sexual behaviour and risk and protective factors between samples of adolescents who have sex under the influence of alcohol and those who do not, and to determine predictors factors for having had sex under the influence of alcohol. We analysed differences between these two groups in sexual practices, attitudes towards HIV, subjective norms and HIV knowledge. Drawing on survey data collected from 1216 Spanish adolescents aged 14-18 (M = 15.92; SD = .76), a subset of 297 sexually experienced participants was selected. Of these, 117 reported having had sex under the influence of alcohol in the past six months (51% girls). Adolescents who combined sex and alcohol engaged more in vaginal sex, oral sex and anal sex than those who did not. Having had sex under the influence of alcohol in the past six months was associated with negative attitudes towards condom use, when there are obstacles on using them, and less consistent condom use. There were no differences in knowledge about STIs/HIV between both groups. Adolescents who combined sex and alcohol showed further characteristics associated with sexual risk. Preventive measures must address the particular characteristics of this risk group. Further evidence is need about alcohol effects on sexual behaviour.

    ABSTRACT: Objective. The purpose of this work was to analyse which variables influence sexual desire in a drug abusers sample during periods of abstinence. The objectives were: a) to compare levels of sexual desire among subjects with a history of drug abuse and subjects without a history of drug abuse; b) to determine the relation between age and having sexual partner or not in subjects with a history of drug abuse; c) to examine the relation among anxiety and depression and sexual desire in subjects with a history of drug abuse; d) to determine which variables predict sexual desire in subjects with a history of drug abuse.Methods. Research was with a sample of 100 men (aged 19 to 72) who belong to drug addiction treatment programs. Furthermore, there was another sample of 46 men (aged 18 to 81) without a history of drug abuse.Results. The analysis did not show differences among the groups (alcohol, cocaine, heroin plus cocaine and subjects without a history of drug abuse) in dyadic sexual desire (F3,125 =0.71, p =0.543) and solitary sexual desire (F3,125 =0.73, p =0.535). However, the variables of anxiety state and age showed predictive capacity for dyadic sexual desire in subjects with a history of drug abuse.Conclusions. In sexual desire there is no difference between subjects without a history of drug abuse and drug addicts during periods of abstinence. In subjects with a history of drug abuse there is a negative relationship between anxiety state and down levels of dyadic sexual desire, and a negative relation between age in conjunction with anxiety state.
