BROWARSKI, Leticia Aszkinas  y  FERNANDEZ ROMAR, Juan Enrique. Senses and experiences related to the recreational use of MDMA (Ecstasy). Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2023, vol.13, n.1, pp.4-17.  Epub 31-Mayo-2023. ISSN 1688-7026.

Below are presented the results of an exploratory and descriptive study focused on analyzing the senses and experiences associated with MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, Ecstasy) consumption experiences in young users of this substance living in the city of Montevideo in the period 2017-2019. A non-probabilistic chain sampling was developed that allowed for the realization of 13 interviews with people between the ages of 20 and 32. The results of this work confirm the consumption motivations already identified in other studies, such as the search for a state of euphoria and disinhibition, as well as energetic discharge and shared happiness. However, a particular interest was also observed in the possibility of sincere communication, as well as a marked confidence in achieving low-risk experiences that foster lasting effects on the relationships generated by shared consumption. These findings may be of interest for the design of clinical strategies that include this substance as an adjunct drug for therapeutic experiences.

Palabras clave : Ecstasy; recreational consumption; subjectivity; motivations.
