Study: Half of Women Prefer Drunk Sex
Social lubrication or low self-esteem?
A 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.

having sex while drunk! what a good way to get a sexually transmitted disease. How can anyone think of safe sex when your drunk head is not even thinking straight? Congratulations German women, or any women that likes to do it drunk. Have your fun while it last. Just try and keep sober when you get bad news either unwanted pregnancy or a call from your dr with expected news.
Its probably true most..most women lack testosterone which is important
for men and women alike..
That's funny....a survey confirmed something everyone knew since alcohol was invented....
Ladies that didn't take the free drinks were tossed into the volcano...the ones that only drank a little, got the tap on the head with a club and dragged by their hair into the cave....It's as old as dirt....
beauty tips and style advice
This week’s surprise announcement about Kate Middleton’s pregnancy has already sparked speculation on what the Duchess will be wearing with her soon-to-be spare heir. What’s more, the spring 2015 collections in New York are providing Middleton with plenty of maternity-friendly ideas for day and night. Here, we pinpoint six looks that should carry the Duchess through her third trimester.
Style inspiration doesn’t just come from the runway. Every Fashion Week, we look far beyond the shows themselves—from the designers and the traveling troupes of editors to the models, photographers, and showgoers, all sorts of style tribes are out hitting the pavement. To refresh our fall closet, we look to eight chic cliques, from the front-row power couples to street-style bloggers. Even better? Getting the look of your favorite tribe has never been easier—everything we’ve pulled is $100 or less.
Autumn is upon us, and we’ve got sweaters, coats and booties on our minds! Below are the first things we’ll be buying (or have already bought!) to kick off next season.
As autumn approaches and the opportunity for days spent lying by the beach begins to wind down, there comes a time to trade the sand-strewn sandals of summer in for the bright, shiny new footwear of fall. And what’s the best way to kick off your closet in preparation for a brisk temperature drop? The boot. From animal print to glittery, hiking to fringed, our fall boots include everything you need to start the season off on the right foot.
No matter what the era, denim is always a staple. From blue to black, acid-washed, studded, and shredded, there’s a denim to fit any mood (or body type). For this fall (and back-to-school month), we’ve rounded up our favorite picks of this all-American classic: Whether we are inspired by a nineties Kate Moss, Rihanna’s affinity for fringe, or model off-duty looks, our elevated denim guide is guaranteed to refresh your wardrobe just in time for the new season.
Beachy waves, soft strands—you can have the dream locks you've always wanted.
You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
With every changing season, our shopping lists seem to grow and grow and grow . . . and yet our bank accounts somehow stay exactly the same! But don’t fret, you can capture all the best fall trends straight from the runway without breaking the bank. Whether you’re yearning for cozy knits, statement necklaces, or bold graphic pieces, our Fall Fashion Guide gives you the best looks—all for less than $100.
Allow us to be frank: Fashion Week is a bit of a misnomer. What with the global sprawl of shows—from New York to London to Milan to Paris—it really should be Fashion Month. (Or Fashion Forever.) Either way, what better way to kick off the marathon of shows, after-parties, flights, and appointments than with our comprehensive A-to-Z guide to all things Fashion Week? Here, find out what to do, eat, see, wear, and keep your eye on this season.
Fashion Weeks may come and go (and with them a focus that shifts from statement coats to statement shoes and statement lips and eyes and back again), but one thing stays the same, no matter the date, year, or season: the editorial need for survival. And with that, you know, ideally looking good, too. Luckily for you, this season the Vogue.com team is divulging its Fashion Week “steals”; must-haves for under $100. From sneakers to a staple cardigan and a classic pair of shades, here are the fall-friendly items that we’ll be carrying with us long after the collections end.
