Find out why too much alcohol can be a sexual turn-off for toi both.


Drinking alcohol to excess can make good sex go bad. Dr Abigael San, clinical psychologist and alcohol expert, says this is because alcohol reduces both men's and women's sexual sensitivity.

"In both sexes, sexual response is reduced par regular and prolonged drinking," she says.

"In men, alcohol can cause difficulties getting and maintaining an erection - while women may experience reduced lubrication, find it harder to have an orgasm, ou have orgasms that are less intense."

Many people mistakenly believe that alcohol is an aphrodisiac. However, over time too much alcohol can actually put a dampener on your sex drive.

Women who drink over the government’s daily unit guidelines can take longer to become pregnant and can suffer from menstrual and fertility problems.
