Poppers is the street term for various alkyl nitrites taken for recreational purposes through direct inhalation, particularly amyl nitrite, butyl nitrite and isobutyl nitrite. Use is particularly prominent among gay urban men. These products have long been part of the club culture from the 1970s disco scene to the 1980s and 1990s rave scene.
