    Hi all,

    It’s from thr BBC
    Why ‘the sex, booze and drugs’?
    I would not use ‘the’ here.

    Thank you.

    Because it's the the sex, booze and drugs that they indulged in at their nudist parties.

    Taking a quick look at the context, I would imagine that the sex and drugs are not necessarily directly tied, so to speak, to the nudists but to the diversions of the rich and dissolute also present in the area.
