In certain sections of the gay scene, slamming is becoming more and more popular. Chems like tina (chrystal meth), ketamine, mephedrone and new substances like 3-mmc, mxe and 4-mec are being injected before or during sex sessions. The rush of slamming is euphoric and sexually stimulating. Chems increase self-confidence, concentration and energy levels. But slamming is also risky.
Mainline collected information during interviews with regular slammers who know the risks and pitfalls involved.

Report: Tina and Slamming
Mainline, together with SOAIDS, presented a report: 'Tina and Slamming'. This report addresses the use of methamphetamine (crystal meth or tina) and slamming (intravenous use).
These two phenomenona were never previously encountered or described in the Netherlands. Our study is based upon a desk review of statistical Dutch data, a literature review and 27 in-depth interviews with MSM that use crystal meth.
