Alcohol & Sex

 

When a small amount of alcohol is consumed the person's sexual inhibitions may dampen, however the sexual desire is enhanced. When the alcohol intake is increased, the person’s decision-making process may become impaired, thus predisposing the person to risky sexual behaviour. 

 

Alcohol also effects the body’s ability to respond to sexual stimuli (i.e. arousal). High alcohol consumption is linked to erectile difficulties in men and as well as vaginal arousal in women amongst other health problems.
