Hey guys, this one’s for you! Take those “beer goggles” off for a second so you can read this. Did you know that, although alcohol might be your go-to social lubricant, it actually won’t do much for your performance in the sack? You see, alcohol is a sexual depressant. Physiologically speaking, heavy alcohol consumption is likely to decrease sexual arousal, decrease intensity of orgasm, and make maintaining an erection more difficult. And if those weren’t enough, there’s also the fact that one’s judgement is impaired to the point of having riskier sex, often without protection, and with people one might not normally choose. Oh, and then there’s that law that says that someone can’t actually give legal consent while they’re under the influence, no matter how old they are.
If you’re going to drink and have sex, it is best to drink only a small amount. A small amount of alcohol can decrease inhibitions and give you more confidence in bed – all while you are able to maintain your faculties and good decision-making skills. Also, you should go into the drinking situation prepared, with a condom in your pocket or ready to use at home. Then, use it! And if the person you were going to have sex with is absolutely wasted, masturbate instead. Trust me on this one: it just might save you a stint in jail and a sexual assault record. Remember, a person can not consent (in the eyes of the law) if they are drunk.
