Do alcohol and drugs make sex better ?

alcohol, drugs and sex. Sound like fun? Well, they can be, and often are. But they can also carry risks, especially when they’re mixed together. Drink and drugs both go hand in hand with socializing. People usually do these things at parties, hanging out with friends, at bars or at clubs. Why? Because drink and drugs can make you feel more relaxed, confident, and less inhibited. When you're feeling this way in a social situation, it’s more likely that you’ll meet someone you like and want to hook up with – maybe even have sex with. The trouble is, that person may be someone that you wouldn’t have gone near if you’d been sober. Even worse, you might be so drunk or high that you forget (or simply don’t bother) to use a condom, which could lead to unwanted pregnancy, or a sexually transmitted infection (STI) being passed on. “We had sex at New Year, which was very blurred as we were both extremely drunk... I do remember that we didn't use anything and I was not on the birth control pill.” - 17 year-old girl “I got really drunk a couple of weeks ago and ended up having unprotected sex… it is the first time I had sex and I am really worried.” - 17 year-old boy 1 Do alcohol and drugs make sex better? feetS of young people Young people drinking alcohol at a party A lot of people seem to think this, but in many cases it’s not actually true. Drink and drugs might make you feel less nervous about sex – but then if you need these things to feel comfortable, you’re probably not with the right person, or you may not be ready to start having sex yet. "My boyfriend wants me to do sex things with him but the only way I can manage is when I get drunk because otherwise I am too scared or embarrassed.” - 16 year-old girl 2 What’s more, sexual performance can actually diminish after a night out. Alcohol is an anaesthetic. It numbs the genitals' nerve cells, making it more difficult to reach orgasm. Alcohol can also make it harder for boys to achieve an erection. Drugs can have a similar effect.

What is casual sex? "A sexual activity where those involved do not define it as romantic or their partner as boyfriend or girlfriend." This could be a definition of casual sex but many people have many different definitions of what casual sex might be. Here are some terms for casual sex that you might come across: No strings attached F*ck buddy One night stands Chance encounters Hook-ups Anonymous sex Socio sexuality Friends with benefits Booty call It's easy to give casual sex lots of different names, but at the end of the day it's all about doing the same thing. It is about one off sexual encounters with strangers or agreements that can stretch over a longer period of time between two people who have sex together. What links them all is that the sex is normally conducted by people who tend to focus more specifically on the physical satisfaction rather than the emotional. Casual sex also doesn't necessarily mean heterosexual intercourse; it can involve any sexual act with anyone. Th

statistics show men are more likely to smoke, drink, use illicit drugs and engage in casual sex than are women — all of which can increase their risk of serious diseases. Males are also more likely to take risks and behave aggressively, which may partly explain why they have a higher risk of dying from accidents, suicide and homicide. Young men are especially at risk. In young men, accidents, suicide and homicide are among the most frequent causes of death. In young and middle-aged men, AIDS is on the top 10 list.

not so. alcohol intake can enhance sex for some time only. continous alcohol taking is injurious.decreases sex power slowly, heavy drink and sex can make impotant one day. sometimes moderate wine drinking and healthy food and herbs like sapked moosli can enhance sex play enjoying.

I do not know about drugs but I am sure that alcohol does not make sex better. It becomes like a mindless activity done without any love, emotion and is generally devoid of any pleasure. Many a times you don't rememebr what you did last night and whther it made you feel happy or not.So it like going for an evening walk after being drunk.

i will admit i love having sex while on drugs, but i have an long term boyfriend, so dont have casual sex, at the end of the day you need to make sure you are safe and use protection...
it is easy to do things under the influance of drungs/drink you would not normally do because you get a sense of freedom.
i have seen a good friend of mine get given loads of free coke just because the guy wanted sex and the next day she felted sicked by what she did cos that not what she is like.
just be safe make sure your with a friend who will look after you, dont mix drink and drugs together and dont over do it x
