Alcohol & Sex 

As Shakespeare has mentioned in
Macbeth, about the effect of alcohol on sex "...it provokes, and
unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance."
It means alcohol increase the desire but it takes away the erection.

Occasionally, a low level of alcohol slightly increase the sexual
arousal. If a man's blood alcohol concentration exceeds more than
0.05, the sexual arousal begins to come down. (If a man consume
three pags of alcohol within 1 to 2 hours, his blood alcohol concentration
level reaches to approx. 0.05).
With a blood alcohol concentration
of 0.06, a man requires longer period for ejaculation while, at
0.09 level many men are unable to ejaculate.
In women with blood alcohol concentration
level of 0.04 level, the sexual arousal goes down and also reduces
the intensity of orgasm. So normally, anything beyond the third
drink is a sexual downer. In men with more alcohol, sexual response
goes down and the subjective sense of arousal also declines. Long
- term effects of chronic, heavy drinking effect of alcohol on sex:


  • It destroys the cells in the testes (which manufacture testosterone) resulting in low libido.
  • Alcohol also decrease one's ability to have a full, firm erection.
  • Delays or absent ejaculation and orgasm.
  • Reduce the production of normal mature sperms.
  • Reduce the male sex harmone(Testosterone) level, resulting an increase in the female sex harmone(Estrogens). Due to which man looses body hair, swelling in breasts (Gynecomastia) and finally shrinkage of the penis and testicles.
  • Chronic alcoholic women have reduced desire for sex, reduced sexual arousal and delayed or absent orgasm. It also disturb - menstrual cycles, ovarian function, decline fertility and shrunken breasts.
