The level of intimate experience will depend on the type of substance, dosage, and timing, all make a big difference… Psychedelics definitely have the potential to impact our sexual desires. Serotonergic hallucinogens are a class of psychedelic drugs strongly linked to the neurotransmitter serotonin—commonly referred to as 5-HT—which is linked to sexual desire.
This category of psychedelics includes LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, mescaline, and DOI (though ketamine and cannabis are often included, too). Here is how three of the most widely known psychedelics impact sexual desire.
MDMA and other hallucinogens such as psilocybin and DMT are also well suited to overcome sexual compulsions, sexual trauma, and sexual dysfunction. By safely integrating both the conscious and subconscious brain, psychedelics are better used as tools to address underlying cause of sex and intimacy issues rather than a drug to ‘improve’ sexual experiences.
