Does consumption of vodka cause sexual disorders?

Hi There, I consume vodka with diet caffeine free coke once or twice a week...my friends always warn me not to drink vodka as it will cause impotency or sexual disorders later on...is it true that there is anything special in vodka which is not in scotch or beer that causes sexual disorders ? Thanks, Abby

Vodka as such does not have any specific effect on sex but its effect on sex applies to all alcoholic beverages. Sexual dysfunctions are common in alcohol dependent people. It includes decreased sexual desire, difficulty in erection, premature ejaculation and impotence. As alcohol content of vodka is much higher than beer so it effects on sex will be more as compared to beer. Long term use of alcohol causes decrease in size of testes, cirrhosis of liver, and many types of cancer. It is better to avoid alcohol.
Thanks
