Study: Half of Women Prefer Drunk Sex

Social lubrication or low self-esteem?

By Kristin Wong May 15, 2012 3:02PM

Photo: Joshua Hodge Photography/Getty ImagesA recent survey revealed that half of German women prefer to have sex after a drink. Fifty-five percent said they like to be tipsy while having sex, and 7 percent want to be downright wasted. Because making love is just so much fun when the room's spinning.

C-Date.com performed the study, surveying the alcohol-fueled sex habits of 5,670 men and women from 11 different countries. The results echoed a study from 2009, which found that 48 percent of women prefer sex under the influence.

Kathryn Lakeland led the latter study and argued that women's propensity to hit the bottle before bed indicates a lack of self-confidence. She told the Daily Mail:

"The fact alcohol plays an integral role in their love lives shows that women are looking for a boost in self-esteem when it comes to their bedroom antics. A large percentage will actually refuse to get between the sheets without a bit of Dutch courage."

She found that 6 percent of women have never had sex sober, and one in six admitted that they "didn't have the confidence" to sleep with someone unless they were drunk.

Depressing statistics, yes. But for the majority of women, isn't "drunk sex" more about relaxing? As one commenter put it:

"People drink when they watch football, too. I think people just like to drink during recreational activities. Isn't that the whole point of drinking?"

Meanwhile, the C-Date study found that 52 percent of men say they don't need any alcohol to get in the mood. In fact, most avoid it in order to prevent any embarrassing bedroom mishaps.

I can see why Republican women would prefer this...I mean you would have to be drunk to have sex with a Right Winger.

(I bet this gets a few votes down!)

Alcohol for me would do nothing and I would prefer the room to stay still while I am trying to nail my target. Women on the other hand may need courage so drinking will get them there but then again a woman is not doing as much work so confidence may not be the issue. I guess alcohol does different things for different people.

Every body looks better after a few drinks. But for guys, too much alcohol gives you a weak willy.

Being a little high definitely reduces inhibitions!
