Since his teen years, Hoshi has been obsessed by the nightlife of the urban entertainment districts of Tokyo; the vulgar neon signs, the dark trash-filled alleys, and the backdrop of human drama taking place both inside and outside the clubs and bars. Haruto Hoshi was born 1970 in Kanagawa and educated at Contemporary Photography Research Institute.
In many western cities, urban nightlife is experiencing a 'McDonaldisation', where big branded names are taking over large parts of downtown areas, leaving consumers with an increasingly standardised experience.
‘‘Partying” Hard: Party Style, Motives for and Effects of MDMA Use at Rave Parties TOM F. M. TER BOGT1 AND RUTGER C. M. E. ENGELS2 1 University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands 2 Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands This study examines motives for and consequences of MDMA use at different types of dance parties in the Netherlands (2001 and 2002). Participants were 490 visitors of three different types of rave parties, “club/mellow,” “trance/mainstream,” and “hardcore” (34% female, mean age 22.3 years, 76.5% MDMA users). Partygoers are motivated primarily by the energetic and euphoric effects they expect from MDMA. Quantity of MDMA use is associated with hardcore and trance/mainstream party style, with the motives of euphoria, sexiness, self-insight, and sociability/ﬂirtatiousness (negative), and with gender, educational level (negative), and MDMA use by friends. Women report more (acute) negative effects—depression, confusion, loss of control, suspiciousness, edginess, nausea, dizziness—than men; and in particular, women who are motivated to cope with their problems by using MDMA are at risk. Men’s polydrug use and notably their motivation to conform to friends by using MDMA are associated with negative effects.
