One of the active ingredients in ecstasy is MDMA which increases seratonin in the brain and will heighten certain senses - especially touching. People on ecstasy love to hug each other and give back rubs. Now considering that touching becomes more pleasurable on ecstasy then it goes to reason that sex is considerably more pleasurable to, and in most people opinions it is.
However due to the effects of ecstasy people can fail to put on a condom due to getting caught in the moment, this isnt so much of a problem if you are in a relationship and have other forms of contraception but take extra care if you are with someone you have never met before.
Also you should know that ecstasy can inhibit the ability to get an erection, so if you are still feeling the effects of the drug there is a chance you wont be getting any action at all.
Finally i would like to point out to the questioner that while ecstasy can be dangerous it is probably less harmfull to you than many legal substances (cigarettes and alcohol for one) and that should you be sensible with it then you should have a highly enjoyable time.

familyfirst answered Saturday February 2 2008, 10:15 pm: This question is not really possible to answer... at least not with the answer I think you are wanting.
My question is: Why are you concerned if sex is safe after ecstasy when one is doing drugs to begin with? When you do drugs you are literally killing yourself little bits at a time, somtimes completely if you overdose! Is sex really an issue here?
Your question is something along the lines of someone wanting to jump off of a highway overpass but concerned because they recently ate a full meal. It just doesn't make sense.
The better question to ask is how can a person doing ecstacy get help with their addiction and make better life choices. You did not specifically state that it was YOU doing ecstacy. This could be a simple question to resolve a debate two people are having. However, the question suggests that you are doing ecstacy and my recommendation is you work on your drug issues and not worry about sex. Ecstacy is not safe, forget about sex. If you are a male and get a female pregnant while on ecstacy, you could cause a significant deal of problems with the baby. If you are female and GET pregnant while on ecstacy, you could cause a significant deal of problems with the baby.
A person who is fulfilling their life with drugs is missing the big picture of life. Sex can be just as much of a drug as an actual chemical; you are fulfilling a void in your life. The problem with sex and drugs is the fulfillment is only temoprary and can actually make you feel worse rather than better.
If you are indeed on drugs and having sex along with it, you have severe psychological issues that you should find help resolving. Don't be alone in your problems. There are people in your community who can help you. [ familyfirst's advice column | Ask familyfirst A Question ]

Ecstasy is a stimulant that increases your heart rate, and blood pressure. It makes you capable of being active for long periods of time, hence the use at dance clubs and raves. It can cause dehydration and hyperthermia. It also convinces your brain into drinking too much water (yes there is such thing as to much) which then over-hydrates you and causes your brain to become "water-logged" and then impairs your judgement, shuts down your senses and can cause a coma, a cardiac arrest, kidney failure, and death.
