Alcohol affects the liver, as you know so although desire as well as erection may become better initially but very quickly, the testosterone level starts going down, so the desire and erection are impaired. As time goes on, your stamina goes down as well as you are exposed to other health risks like diabetes, reduced muscle mass so erection and pleasure further suffers so For sure, this is likely to ruin your sex life,sooner rather than later. Further, even Viagra has poor effect with alcohol
