English: Many people drink alcohol because they feel like it helps them socialize and feel confident. Others also feel it makes them more flirtatious and horny, while some feel that alcohol lessens their sex drive. Furthermore, alcohol has a tendency to reduce people’s self control and can make them more impulsive. Because of this, some will also be more willing to try new things while they’re drunk. Those who feel horny when they drink don’t necessarily perform better when they have sex. Alcohol can cause short and long term impotence as well as dry out mucous membranes in the pussy and anal. It can also decrease sensitivity, which can make it harder to orgasm.
Before and during sex with other people, it’s always your responsibility to make sure the one(s) involved give you their consent. Getting your partner(s)’s consent’s especially important when you’re under the influence of alcohol and/or other drugs.
