Ecstasy As A Date Rape Drug

Ecstasy is not as commonly used as a date rape drug as GHB or Rohypnol, primarily because it does not incapacitate the victim or make him or her unable to ward off sexual advances. In addition, Ecstasy is relatively insolu-able in many liquids. Also, Ecstasy actually tends to make male users impotent and unable to achieve an erection. This impotence is increasingly common in men who repeatedly use Ecstasy. This has spurred the popularity of a new drug combination, Viagra® (a drug that helps men achieve erections) and Ecstasy, which male users take so they can remain sexually functional while high on Ecstasy. This combination is quite risky, however, with numerous side effects such as heart problems, high blood pressure, and even death, especially when taken with another drug called amyl nitrate ("poppers").

Nevertheless, there have been reports of Ecstasy powder being slipped into an unsuspecting person's drink. In such instances, a person under the influence of Ecstasy might experience confusion and impaired judgment, and may engage in behaviors that he or she would not normally engage in. Thus, Ecstasy is often still considered a date rape drug.
