What is PNP? Some guys put this on their online profiles.

PNP is now a popular abbreviation in personal profiles online. It stands for, "Party and Play," which is a way to describe men who like to use crystal methamphetamine during sex.

Crystal meth is an “upper” drug, leading to an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and the lack of sleep and food intake. Some say meth increases sexual stamina, but it also clouds judgment, leading to risky sexual behaviors. Some men party for days, engaging in aggressive sex, which can lead to injury and an increased chance for transmitting and receiving HIV.

Meth use during sex also increases your chance of acquiring an STD and/or an addiction to crystal. Check out for more information on methamphetamine and sex or call The Stonewall Project at 415-502-1999.

To your health,
Dr. K
