Sex and Alcohol

As you’ve matured, you should rethink just how drinking impacts lovemaking.  Shakespeare noted in Macbeth that drink,  “provokes the desire but it takes away the performance.” Assuming you have no medical prohibitions on drinking due to drug interactions, for us men, intoxication can severely impair the ability to achieve an erection and the intensity of an orgasm. And while some women say it increases their sexual pleasure (that may be due to decreased levels of inhibition), alcohol can reduce a woman’s vaginal blood flow and lubrication as well as her orgasmic intensity.  So while a little alcohol MAY help to ease some sexual tension, it’s probably best left for the “after glow” moments.  (It never hurts to have some K-Y, Astroglide, or Slip lubricant available just in case – Hal).
