How psychedelics like psilocybin mushrooms, MDM, and ketamine are leveling the sexual health and desire playing field for women.

Here's the thing: your sex drive will naturally fluctuate over the years — and that's OK! But stress, trauma, and depression can speed this up.

In an American Sexual Health Association survey of 2,501 women ages 21 through 49, a full 48% reported a declining sex drive.

Experts believe this is because women are more likely to experience trauma than men, and transgender and gender-­diverse individuals are at a much higher risk of developing trauma than the general population. Women also experience depression more often, with 1 in 7 women suffering from postpartum depression alone.

And while it's tempting to turn to pharmaceuticals, they're typically inaccessibly priced and come with a host of undesirable side effects. Instead, women are experimenting with psychedelics — not for recreational purposes, but for sexual healing. And with great success.

Sexual healing with psychedelic therapy.

Psychedelics are having a moment.

After decades of prohibition and vilification, they are increasingly being employed as therapeutics. Drugs like psilocybin mushrooms, ketamine, and MDMA are being studied in clinical trials that focus on the root cause of millions of women’s sexual desire issues, leveling the desire playing field through psychedelics-assisted psychotherapy.

Online, women on Reddit and in Facebook groups share accounts of how they’ve used psilocybin, LSD, ketamine, and MDMA to address PMS, menopause, low sexual desire, postpartum depression, and PTSD from sexual trauma.

In labs, studies suggesting good results from just a few doses of Psilocybin or MDMA combined with therapy have led the FDA to designate those drugs as breakthrough therapies for treatment-­resistant depression and PTSD, respectively. That's the priority status given to promising drugs proposed to fill an unmet need.

And as these long-taboo drugs stage a comeback in the scientific community, it’s possible they could be especially promising for women.
