Alcohol is the oldest known aphrodisiac for increasing libido. But large amounts of alcohol can have dreadful consequences on your sexual life. If you consume large amounts of alcohol your 'tool' sometimes completely fails to perform. So, what consequences can you expect if you mix alcohol and sex?

Alcohol increases sexual arousal

As said before, moderate amounts of alcohol increase sexual arousal and make you more relaxed, confident and attractive, which makes it is easier for you to meet and conquer the girl or guy of your dreams. Of course, that does not mean that we are advertising the consumption of alcohol in difficult and uncomfortable situations. But it is true, that a glass or two might help you, especially if you are nervous by nature and have a bad self-image.

Alcohol makes you more relaxed between the sheets

A glass of alcohol will help you to become more relaxed, adventurous and less shy in bed. Many boundaries will fall and you might do things you never dreamed of doing before and sexual intercourse can truly become an exciting experience.

Don't forget to drink moderately

So, now it is time to say a few things about the unwanted effects of alcohol on sexual intercourse. Your sexual performance will be pretty lame is you drink too much alcohol. Men can experience serious erection problems and difficulties with reaching an orgasm, which can cost you a whole night of pleasure. It is therefore necessary to know your boundaries which are different with each individual.

Alcohol can blur your judgment

Another unwanted effect of alcohol is that it blurs your judgment. Instead of practicing safe sexual intercourse, alcohol makes you forget all about it, which can have fatal consequences, for example unwanted pregnancy or infection with sexually transmitted diseases.

Don't let the use of alcohol become an abuse

It is fine if you drink a glass or two from time to time, but moderate drinking can quickly become excessive drinking with fatal consequences on your sexual life. Alcohol can cause permanent erection problems and bad performance in bed. It is also often a reason for aggression and violence of men over women. In such case, you should act before alcohol becomes your enemy and seek professional help!
