Chemsex is a term used by gay men to describe drug use (typically GHB/GBL, crystal methamphetamine and mephedrone) during sex. This research is based on interactionist theory and describes the personal and social context for chemsex in Denmark and analyses the accounts of MSM who regularly engage in chemsex. Inspired by Scott and Lyman’s “Accounts” and Erving Goffman (“Face-work”), the study aims to uncover the chemsex aetiologies used by the participants.
The Main Bazaar in Paharganj is by some Delhiites considered hell due to it’s reputation for drugs and shady characters. But as my good Indian friend told me “you can find these things everywhere in Delhi – they are just more obvious in the Main Bazaar”.
However, unlike many capital cities, Delhi actually feels pretty safe to me. This might be an illusion of course, but I like Delhi a lot and I also like the Main Bazaar. I have stayed there three times now and feel both comfortable there and quite at home. It is also the cheapest place to stay in Delhi and has lots of cheap restaurants, travel agencies and shops.
This video gives you a small idea about the character of the Main Bazaar – heaven or hell? Judge for yourself.
