The Effects of Alcoholism on Sex

Written by: Concerned Scientists

Research shows alcohol plays a role in Sexuality [Human sexuality is the capacity of humans to have erotic experiences and responses].

Investigation in Social Institutions shows that Vandalism, Fighting, Fatal and non-fatal injuries [accidents], Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), Unplanned pregnancies, Acquaintance rape/date rape can all emanate from improper use and consumption of alcohol.

Why Does Alcohol Affect Sexual Behavior?
Men and women both are more likely to engage in casual sexual behavior when there is alcohol involved. Alcohol lowers inhibitions about engaging in sexual behaviors. Alcohol increases perceptions of attractiveness for both men and women, further promoting the possibility of engaging in casual sexual behaviors. 65% reported alcohol or drugs being involved in their more recent casual sex encounter.

How Does Alcohol Affect Sexual Performance and Pleasure?
For men, alcohol use before sex results in DECREASED penis engorgement (hardness), Orgasmic intensity, Overall satisfaction and pleasure.
For women, alcohol use before sex results in DECREASED ability to orgasm (and some women may not be able to orgasm at all), Orgasmic intensity, Overall satisfaction and pleasure.

The effects of alcohol are balanced between its suppressive effects on sexual physiology, which will decrease sexual activity, and its suppression of psychological inhibitions, which may increase the desire for sex. Alcohol is a depressant. After consumption, alcohol causes the body's systems to slow down.

Some Statistics -
26% of males and nearly 36% of females failed to use a condom during sex with someone they met on spring break.
Nearly 50% of the males and 41% of the females reported having consumed alcohol just prior to sex.

When asked about their alcohol use in connection with their sexual activities, 49% of men and 38% of women reported having sex as a direct result of drinking.

75% of all students reported never or rarely using a condom on spring break. Students reported their decision were negatively influenced by alcohol or drug use just prior to sexual activity. 74% of males and nearly 88% of females reported never or rarely worrying about STDs/HIV, even though they were at risk.
About 48% of men and women who had sex under the influence regretted the experience.

STDs and Alcohol.
Several risk factors for STDs are common when alcohol influences sexual behavior, which includes - Multiple sex partners, Engaging in unprotected sex (in other words, sex without a condom), Combining substance use with sexual activity.

Young adults who used alcohol were seven times more likely to have unprotected sex. About 23% of sexually active teens and young adults say they have had UNPROTECTED sex because they were using alcohol or drugs at the time.

Only 28% of young adults said they were concerned about STDs or pregnancy because of sexual intercourse they had while using alcohol or drugs, even though they were at increased risk.

Oral sex under the influence of alcohol tends to involve less discussion of safe sex practices than without alcohol, thus increasing risk for STD transmission. Young adults who used alcohol were twice as likely to have multiple sex partners, a HIGH risk factor for contracting STDs.

Substance use can cause biological alterations that place a person physically more at risk for an STD infection because alcohol can impair a person’s immune system and the ability to fight off an STD.
