Sexual violence and consumption of psychoactive substances: can the festive contexts be educational?
This paper analyses the triad feminine sex, drug use in party settings and its association with sexual violence. Through literature review and two focus groups implemented with female partygoers and recreational drug users (n=12), aged between 16 and 46 years old and from middle class, several gender inequalities emerging in party settings were highlighted. The normalization of sexual violence in these settings and the reproduction of rape myths justify the implementation of informal educational interventions to prevent them. Considering this, responses to this phenomenon and best practices are also analyzed.
