POPSUGAR Love Sex The Pros and Cons of Drunk Sex Hooking Up Under the Influence — Love It or Leave It? by Love and Sex 8/23/10 1 Shares Like us on Facebook Sign up for our daily newsletter > Hooking up after you've had a few drinks can get either sexy or sloppy. With a glass or two of wine and lowered inhibitions, you might let yourself go more than usual. But it's not always wonderfully wild. As one TrèsSugar community member explained in our Sex 101 group, drunk sex can make it harder to climax, and too many drinks might lead to a one-night stand you'll wake up regretting along with your hangover. Even so, in a UK survey last year, almost 50 percent of women said they enjoyed sex more after a few drinks. Do you?

Though I've never been a one-night-stand kind of girl. And yes, to clarify, one or two glasses of wine is fine, any more than that though, I just don't climax well. Roar I get dehydrated too, I can't kiss well with cotton mouth. There was this one time- I can't even believe I'm sharing this!- after a wild night at the bar, this guy asked me to spit in his mouth and I was so dehydrated I couldn't. It was awkward, I think he was insulted. Bettye-Wayne 4 years Ha, that Tressugar Sex 101 member was me!

It does help me talk to some people though, especially if they're not one to make the first step, either. But hooking up.. no. I really do not like it when I realize I'm so drunk my hands don't do what I want them to do and so on. The fact that it makes you dehydrated is also bad.

But drunk sex allows me to forget about body insecurities, the possibility for morning-after drama, and my performance; and just focus on how good it feels. :D Pistil 4 years I like having a drink. Makes me feel more relaxed. More than that and I'm just sleepy. And I'm not hooking up with strangers. Rjs-baby-girl 4 years Alcohol makes me sleepy so... Leave it! juicebox07 4 years Only with my boyfriend. juicebox07 4 years Only with my boyfriend. PontNeuf 4 years It's better to work on lowering your inhibitions without alcohol and actually enjoying yourself. Alcohol just makes me sleepy and doesn't put me in the mood. elramos 4 years With my boyfriend, yes. If it were someone I just met or barely knew, no.
