This Is What Drugs and Alcohol Do to Your Body While Getting It On
Does it help or hinder your performance?
Feeling the vibe
Before getting to the bedroom antics, our participants have to get in the “mood.”
People said they felt “sexier” after drinking. “One female stated she felt so attractive on alcohol that she feels she is the ‘diva of the party,’ yet another states she felt like the ‘sexiest woman on the planet’ while high on marijuana.”
How does being high feel while prowling versus being drunk during your scouting? A 32-year-old woman in the NYU study said: “When I’m drunk, I’m drunk, so I’m like, ‘I’m hot.’ Then with weed, I usually feel more sexy … and happy. You usually feel a little sexier, a little bit more turned on and ready to have s*x, instead of being self-conscious.”
Taking a hit
Everyone reacts to marijuana and the various strains of it differently.
Also, keep in mind that smoking weed tends to make people less social and more quiet. We all know at least one person that smokes a large amount and just sits there staring at the wall, right? Well we also know that wake and bake person, who can get high and get to work on time and be completely functional.
One man from the study said that having a few drinks helps to repress some of his insecurities and that smoking will occasionally help his body image problems.
One 18-year-old male participant said, “I don’t feel as outgoing [on marijuana]. I don’t want to hold a conversation and stuff like that. Whereas if I’m drunk, I talk to anybody.”
A 19-year-old woman, countered that marijuana makes her “laugh more, and […] when you laugh, it makes people want to socialize with you.”
“When I’m high, I’m a people person, but I’m selective,” said a 35-year-old male participant. “When I drink, I don’t mind being in a crowd of people. There are times I’ll be high, and I’ll go to a party, and I’ll pick this guy or this girl. But when I’m drunk, I’m just going to mingle with everybody,” said a 35-year-old man.
Drunk in the Bedroom
From the study, some women reported that men can be more agressive with them when drunk. “When there’s drinking involved, guys seem to get more belligerent and crazy, and get this weird aggressive energy,” said one 31-year-old female participant.
“Maybe I’m looking for [s*x] more if I were drunk, whereas when I’m high, I’m happy doing other things,” one 31-year-old woman said. “S*x is great. Watching a movie is great. Resting’s great. But when I’m drunk, f**king would be great.”
The study also reporting that sexual encounters while drunk tend to last longer compared to when the participants were sober. (Put that in the positive or negative pile depending on how long you like your sexual sessions to last.)
Many of the subjects said when they are under the influence, they pick an “atypical partner” or experience “post-s*x regret.” Maybe you can relate to rolling over after you’ve woken up after a night of debauchery and going “Aw, man!” Unfortunately, feelings of regret and shame about this mainly impact the women of the study.
