Meth, Sex, & STDs (2012) - 24 minutes
Meth, Sex, & STDs at Moonshadow.biz

From the producers of the 5 time national award winner "Choose Life or Choose Meth."

This fascinating educational documentary concentrates on the integral and destructive relationship between meth, sex, and STD's. Methamphetamine is a powerful, toxic, man-made stimulant that is also extemely addictive. Users often become addicts within a week and quickly experience a profound energized sexual appetite, which becomes powerful word-of-mouth advertising among unsuspecting teens. Tragically, users start down a long road that is fraught with reckless sexual behavior, crime, mental illness, STD's and ultimately sexual impotency. The psychological problems that accompany meth use over time frequently include declining interest in "normal sex" which leads to a proliferation of behavior that is often perverse and illegal, such as abusing children, in order to become aroused. Meth-sex is often very rough, and genital tears and abrasions resulting from prolonged sex increase the chance that HIV or an STD will be passed between partners. Injecting the drug frequently leads to sharing of the needles, syringes and other supplies where HIV and viral hepatitis can be passed. All of this is accompanied by drug-induced feelings of invincibility and paranoia, which keeps people from seeking the medical care they need. So the spread of disease continues.

Hosted by Claire Scarisbrick, national award winning documentary host, and featuring Dr. Karen Furst, M.D., M.P.H., public health officer, and Dr. Mary Holley, M.D., Executive Director, Mothers Against Methamphetamine. Inmates, clinicians, recovering addicts and others whose lives have been affected by the drug authenticate their messages.

"Excellent classroom resource!"

"Practically everyone agreed that this is very important information that meth users will never share with non-users."

"This is a must for all teens because meth is effectively promoted on half-truths about the fun you can have at parties. This video decisively dispels that myth with forthright insights into where that behavior leads. Very well done!"
