An alarming trend has resurfaced where middle-aged women relive their rebellious youths by lacing their cheese boards with recreational drugs.
Women are sprinkling powdered MDMA onto slices of camembert to liven up their dinner parties in a fad known as ‘Brieing’ which originally took off in the late 2010s.
One woman said she and her friend started ‘Brieing’ to recreate the ‘fun and laughter’ from their wilder party days in a more mature setting.

They believe the soft French cheese is the perfect vehicle for the drug, also known as ecstasy, because it masks the powder’s texture and arrives at the end of a meal.
An anonymous 50-year-old woman previous spoke with Metro about the craze saying she and her ‘strong circle’ of female friends had tried all the latest dinner party fads but ‘something was missing’.
‘We did not seem to have as much of a laugh than as when we were younger, there always seemed to be barriers up between us,’ she said.
‘So one of our group suggested we all take MDMA together so we could open up to each other and improve our friendships.’
The mum said her friend was given a gram of the illicit drug by their daughter and she had to call her son to ask about the best way to take it before they decided to sprinkle it on their Brie.

‘Nothing much happened for 40 minutes then the colours in the rug seemed to be a more vivid and before I know it was in an in-depth conversation about my fantasy sex life with an old friend,’ she explained.
The woman said it was an ‘intense experience’ and a year later she has been invited to a number of ‘Brieing’ parties.
‘It is such a middle class way to take drugs, that is probably why it has taken off,’ she added.
Another woman, who is 42 and married with two children said she and her friends get together monthly to take MDMA with hoisin duck pancakes.
‘Last time all the mums came over a civilised dinner party it ended with one of them wrapped up in the velvet curtains, one hallucinating at the bathroom wall and the others dancing to 90s rave music while playing bongos in the sitting room,’ she said.
‘It’s all good fun at the time but by Wednesday we wish we’d just watched Netflix and had a nice bottle of wine.’
According to the Australian Department of Health, MDMA and ecstasy are illegal in Australia due to the serious health risks that can sometimes result in death.
They are not regulated so users can never be sure what is in them or how strong they are making it near-impossible to predict a person’s reaction to the drugs.
Between 2000 and 2018 there were 392 MDMA-related deaths in Australia most of which occurred in males in their mid-twenties.
