Are you doing drugs? It's not like he has a pile of cocaine next to the bed and he dips his penis in it before we have sex. Even my dick has a cocaine jones. If he's not putting it on his skin directly, then it's worse because the coke is in his seminal fluid.
MDMA Sex MDMA use was championed in s couples therapy due to its ability to trigger empathy in users , and has even become colloquially known as "the love drug.
