A little alcohol can go a long way in giving you some liquid courage. After a drink or two, you’re usually feeling great. You feel bubbly, you feel warm, you feel really happy, and you’re perfectly lubricated to handle yourself in social situations. All of a sudden, talking to those new people doesn’t seem so scary. Those pretty girls might actually like what you have to say, so why not give it a shot?
Then, there’s the tipping point. It’s a long, raucous reunion with your college buddies. It’s your 21st birthday. It’s a New Year’s Eve party. Whatever the occasion, you’re getting hammered. And for every drink you have, your performance in the bedroom is bound to take a hit. Having the bartender “pour you a stiff one” could mean you’ll be a Droopy Dan later in the night. Too many drinks has a significant, adverse effect on your sex drive.
You need to know your limits, and as far as alcohol goes, less usually means more! Take a look at this list of 10 alcoholic drinks that are bad for your performance. Is it time to pick a new go-to?
10 The Dark and Stormy
9 Gin and Tonic
More like gin and ton-NIX this drink if you want to get it on! This is a double whammy performance killer. The gin will depress your system because it’s alcohol. Decreased blood flow, dehydration, all wrapped in a neat little package.
8 Rum and Diet Coke
7 Shots, Shots, Shots!
6 Long Ride for Long Island
5 Sex on the Beach
4 Old Fashioned
Have you ever seen that episode of South Park where they joke about calling HJ's “old Fashioneds”? It’s a riot, and only kind of related to the drink.
3 Whiskey Ginger
We just talked about Old Fashioneds from your bartender ruining old fashioneds from your girlfriend, but what about other whiskeys? Are those likely to cause an issue too?
Yes. You’re probably very familiar with the term Whiskey D*ck. While it’s clear that alcohol in general, not just whiskey, causes performance issues, whiskey still gets the bad rap. It’s not totally clear where this term originated.
2 Beer Boy
1 More Wine?
In a bit of a curveball, we’ve saved the best drink for you, for last. In the right amounts, so probably not more than 2 cups per person, red wine has been shown to actually help out in bed. A little red wine can boost testosterone, which is great for men in the sack. For women, it can increase the desire to get dirty.
Of course, none of this matters if you’re drinking a bottle or two by yourself. After a certain point, and it’s a small threshold, the adverse effects of alcohol will kick in. Once that happens, it won’t have mattered what you drank.
