Booty-Bumping Meth: Harm Reduction for an Under-Discussed Practice
Jan 31, 2020
Filtermag.org recently released an article titled “Booty-Bumping Meth: Harm Reduction for an Under-Discussed Practice”. The article describes the somewhat taboo practice of “booty bumping” (also known as “shafting”) - the rectal administration of substances. Rectal administration can be a valid harm reduction alternative to injecting - reducing some of the risks associated with injecting, like blood-borne virus transmission and vein damage. However the article is careful to also outline the risks associated with the practice. The article describes safer booty-bumping strategies and includes a useful list of harm reduction and safety tips for those engaging in the practice.
