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.

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.

Studies have shown that when women have one drink they get a surge in testosterone and sex is better. But one drink only.

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....

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet.
