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....

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.
