Thanks for posting your query.
You can have protected sex and masturbate while taking doxycycline.
Drinking alcohol is not recommended while taking this antibiotic to avoid any untoward reactions. However alcohol is not likely to affect the efficacy of the medicine.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
