As we have seen in countless movies, television shows, and cell phone recordings, parties and drugs seem to go hand-in-hand and produce some perfect examples of delinquent behavior. While spending time with friends or the public should be fun and uplifting, the presence of alcohol or mind-altering drugs can automatically turn an energetic event into a disturbing cesspool. On that note, are you familiar with the term “Party and Play” (abbreviated as PnP)? Commonly used by crystal meth addicts, this term simply refers to the act of dangerous intoxication (partying) and, most dangerous of all, wild sexual escapades (playing). Let’s take a closer look and see what you need to know about “party and play,” so you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Time to Play, Partygoers

As indicated before, PnP refers to “party and play,” a blatant term for drug use mixed with dangerous sexual activities (like group sex or unprotected intercourse), and it is an unfortunately common code word. A shady term overall, PnP is commonly used as a code word between addicts or social butterflies to kickstart discussions about actual events called PnP parties. Keep in mind that this term is widely used by people who suffer comorbid drug addiction and sex addiction or tend to live a looser lifestyle. Despite a person’s initial moral values, however, we can all agree that PnP is dangerous for anyone.

What Makes It Dangerous?

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT “PARTY AND PLAY”Aside from the blatantly obvious references to sex and rugs, PnP activities are dangerous triggers for the transmission of disease. By engaging in unprotected sex (and possible group sex), these men and women are putting themselves at a disturbingly high risk for contracting sexually-transmitted diseases like hepatitis C or (even worse) HIV/AIDS. Let’s also not forget that crystal meth (a common drug at these parties) can destroy skin around the mouth, resulting in open sores that allow for the easy transmission of these diseases.
