Dan came to Galop after a number of distressing chemsex experiences.

Dan wanted to meet other men for sex and BDSM while taking chems but a few times things had gone beyond what he felt in control of. One time he was sure he had been deliberately dosed with G so that he lost consciousness and whatever happened next had been live streamed. This experience was troubling Dan, he felt confused about whether he had consented, and worried about being judged, or having to explain about BDSM and chemsex. Galop gave him a non-judgemental and confidential space to talk, which validated his choices, helped him learn about consent, and supported him without pressure.

Dan felt more confident about his choices when meeting other men for sex and more empowered to know how to seek help if he needed to in the future.
