Lately I've been hearing stories from more and more friends about this stuff called "rufies". It's like a pill or a chemical that boys slip into girls drinks to make us horny or kinda spaced out so we lose our inhibitions, and make it easier for them to have sex with us! This has been happening a lot, especially at parties, raves and clubs, where boys can just slip something into your drink. It doesn't even have to be alcohol, because the stuff works in punch, juice, soda, or even water! All I can say is for people to watch out for this stuff, because it's supposed to be all over the country now!

Yea it's technical term is GHB and it's a liquid, in this months YM they have a story about it. There were three girls, Sam, Melanie, and Jessica and they were hanging out with some boyz and the boyz (boys that they KNEW and had hung out iwth a lot) put GHB in their drinks. It's oderless and usually tasteless. Basically Sam died, and Melanie had enough GHB in her system that was TWICE the amount that would kill a person. Jessica just sipped her drink so she was fine.

We published the SIECUS report on date rape drugs last month, here: Date Rape Drugs.

I would think that this subject would bring up a big controversy among teenagers of the 90's/new millenium.


I can't believe that some guy would be so desperate and so insane that they would go and put this into some girls drink... They should go out and find someone for them... Not try to abuse and use them. Isn't that a federal crime??

And I am sure its not just guys slipping stuff into girls drinks. I am sure there is some girl out there who loves to take advantage of guys and slip the stuff into their drinks. Have there been anymore stories on this drug??

How do people get their hands on stuff like this??? It must be really easy to get ahold of if its all over the country by now!!

It is indeed criminal, but the trouble is tracking the person who did it down, which in group settings, is almost impossible.

As we mentioned in the artyicle, the safe bet is simply to hold unto your own drink at a party, and not let someone else mix or pour it for you, even if it's soda.

I don't know that it's quite what I'd term something REALLY widespread, but it is happening. It is mostly male, however, as far as studies can tell. Most (not all) rape situations are.

Is there any idea to who could have invented the date rape drug?

How could anyone be this cruel?

What is everyone else's opinion on this?

"Rufie" is one of the street names for a drug called Rohypnol. It was NOT invented as a date-rape drug, but as a surgical anesthetic or sleeping pill, which some awful people have been illegally importing into the U.S. and using to committ rape.

"Roofie is dropped into drinks at bars and parties, leaving roofie recipients open to suggestion, physically weak, and perhaps most troubling of all, without memory of events that transpire after the drug takes effect." (http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0884.html)

It's actually only one of a variety of drugs that have similar effects, and the solution, like Miz Scarlett said, is to hang on to your drink at all times. Then again, in the college town where I live we're always hearing stories of women who get date raped just because they got too drunk to know what was happening, and the creeps that raped them didn't need any drugs but alcohol.

Thanks to Go Ask Alice! (http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu) for the info.

This rufies stuff is around more than you think! Especially at raves where a lot of kids are strung out on Extacy to begin with!

I dont really think one person perse invented it. In a school program they had police officers come in who told us EXACTUALLY how to make GHB and in all reality it is quite simple. I'm thinking maybe some people go a little to far on education, if someone decided they wanted to get lucky then they would already know how to make it..seems a bit odd doesnt it?

It just bothers me how guys (or girls) would use that crap just to get someone into bed! It is so easy to find people to have sex with nowadays, why would they bother to even do something as sick as that?

Many people often manipulate someone or lie to them. Get others drunk, or rape by force. People -- unfortunately -- through the ages have often done terrible things to get what they wanted and feel in control, with little care or thought to the consequences. It's awful, but it happens all too much, and always has on some level.

However, as with any rape scenario, do realize that it isn't usually about sex at all. It's about power. For someone who rapes, if it is easy, Hot, it isn't what they are looking for at all.
