Does Alcohol Affecting Your Sex Life? Definitive Guide
The presence of foreign substances like alcohol in the body might ruin your sex life.
Don’t believe me?
Your body has neurotransmitters that carry the messages and responses in the different parts of the body, and based on the signal, your body reacts.
If you consume alcohol above the moderation level, you challenge the work function of the neurotransmitters.
As a result, your behavior changes along with the response time and response pattern.
You can also observe changes in sexual behavior due to the unconstrained level.
Let’s find out how alcohol makes you the person you’d never want to become when sober.
- Sex with the unsuitable and wrong partners
Getting laid off with the wrong and unsuitable person is one of the worst hit repercussions of alcohol consumption.
Alcohol diminishes your conscience, and you fail to measure what’s right and wrong for you at the moment.
Hook-ups with the wrong partners may lead to a series of consequences including sexually transmitted diseases like AIDS and infection like Gonorrhea.
- Breaks the trust and the relationship
Again, with moral and cognitive conscience draining into the ocean with alcohol, a decent number of committed people indulge in external affairs and sexual sessions.
As sex with the wrong person brings deceit and infidelity, the trust of the trustee is broken and the relationship ushers towards self-destruction.
One wrong decision at one wrong moment could lead to the disheartening end of a great relationship adding more to the mental stress and affected sex life.
- Unwanted pregnancy
If you’d ask me who loves alcohol the most, I’d say “morning pill makers.”
With alcohol content high in the blood, the lack of creed and impulsive decisions lead to unwanted pregnancy.
Nothing contributes to the selling of morning pill as much as the alcohol does.
Morning pills have synthesized hormones that prevent ovulation and pregnancy.
As the synthesized hormones enter into the systemic circulation, there’s an imbalance in the sex hormone which may last up to a few days.
And there’s plenty of evidence which proves that the hormonal imbalance affects sex life.
- Increases abortion rate
As alcohol takes a person away from himself, his brain fuddles up to take preventative measures against the unprotected sex.
With the brain at such an unconscious state, there are chances that women might forget to take morning pills or any other contraceptive.
Later, the detection of pregnancy might compel the fetus bearer to take harsh decisions such as abortion against the baby.
Although abortion is illegal in many countries, unwanted pregnancies have also given birth to the parallel but hidden industry which helps to get rid of the fetus.
Moreover, unpreparedness towards handling the baby also induces high-level depression.
And depression is precisely known for tattering sex life.
- Leads to impotence
There are two types of believers: One who considers that alcohol increases the sex drive, i.e., libido; without any anecdotal cases.
And the ones who confirm that alcohol kills the sexual desire by appending tiredness in the body.
The actual impact of alcohol on libido is yet not clear; however, several shreds of evidence indicate that the high volume of alcohol in the bloodstream punishes the blood vessels and destroy the sex-transmitters which carry information regarding sex stimulation and sex response.
As alcohol beyond the stated limit constricts the blood vessels, the small arteries in the genital may choke much before your heart chokes.
It, in turns, causes impotence by blocking the blood flow in the penis.
If excessive alcohol intake is affecting your sex life, you need to step in and take necessary measures before you turn as its puppet.
Meditation and psychological therapies are a great help for combating alcohol intake.
